For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Attempted Transfer of Obscene Material to a Minor was sentenced on November 19, 2018, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Christopher James Perry, age 37, was sentenced to 12 months in federal prison, followed by 2 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Perry also may be required to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

Perry was charged on February 21, 2018.  The conviction stems from Perry sending an obscene image of himself to someone he believed to be a 15 year-old girl via the internet, in August 2017 at Rapid City.

The case was investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.
