Rosebud Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on November 13, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Anthony Edward Farmer, age 33, was sentenced to 18 months in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Farmer was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 11, 2017. He pled guilty on September 18, 2017.
The conviction stems from Farmer failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between May 22, 2017, and June 16, 2017. Farmer had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which requires him to register for the rest of his life.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case. Farmer was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
