Rosebud Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on July 19, 2021, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Moses Left Hand Bull, age 29, was sentenced to 22 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Left Hand Bull was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 14, 2020.  He pled guilty on May 17, 2021.

Left Hand Bull was convicted of Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor in September 2009.  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 relocation or changing employment.  In June 2020, Left Hand Bull was released from custody and began a period of supervised release.  He thereafter failed to register and update his registration.

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

Left Hand Bull was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
