Rosebud Man Indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
Jason Kimmel, Sr., age 39, was indicted on April 13, 2021. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 18, 2021, 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, five years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
Kimmel was convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in 2005. As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender. It is alleged that between February 10, 2021, and April 1, 2021, Kimmel, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of conviction under Federal Law, failed to properly register as a sex offender and update his registration.
The charge is merely an accusation and Kimmel is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley is prosecuting the case.
Kimmel was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
