Rapid City Man Sentenced for Failure to Register

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on March 25, 2020, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Troy Sampson, age 42, was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Sampson was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 13, 2019.  He pled guilty on January 13, 2020.

Between April 5, 2019, and June 2, 2019, Sampson, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of a conviction under federal law for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor, knowingly failed to register and update his registration.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

Sampson was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
