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 June 6, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Odell Thomas Goodshield, Jr., age 57, was sentenced to 13 months in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Goodshield was indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender by a federal grand jury on February 17, 2016.  He pled guilty on March 29, 2016.

On June 14, 1999, Goodshield was sentenced to 188 months in federal custody for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor.  As a result of his conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender.  Between January 6, 2016, and January 28, 2016, Goodshield, 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, failed to properly register as a sex offender in Pennington County and elsewhere.  

This case was investigated by United States Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie G. Sanderson prosecuted the case.

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