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

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Jeffrey W. Provancial, age 27, was indicted on December 11, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on December 13, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

Provancial was convicted of Aggravated Sexual Abuse by Force and Sexual Abuse in July 2010 in federal court.  As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender for his natural life.  It is alleged that between June 13, 2018, and November 2, 2018, Provancial failed to properly register as a sex offender as required by law.

The charge is merely an accusation and Provancial is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Elmore is prosecuting the case.   

Provancial was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
