Rapid City Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on January 30, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.


Allen Good Shield, age 27, was sentenced to 20 months in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.


Good Shield was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 23, 2016. He pled guilty on November 8, 2016.


Good Shield was convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in federal court in November 2010, and sentenced to 27 months in prison, followed by 5 years supervised release. As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender and to update his registration within three business days of relocating or changing employment. In July 2016, Good Shield registered with an address in Rapid City. Good Shield subsequently absconded from supervised release and an arrest warrant was issued. He was arrested in Rapid City on August 11, 2016. Good Shield did not update his sex offender registration between August 2, 2016, and August 11, 2016, as required by law.


This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.


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