Sex Offender Sentenced in Federal Court

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

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a South Dakota man convicted of failure to register as a sex offender was sentenced on June 7, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Lawrence L. Piersol.

Jeremiah Calvin Rederth, age 39, was sentenced to 15 months in custody, followed by five years of supervised release.  He was also ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Rederth was indicted for failure to register as a sex offender by a federal grand jury on March 2, 2021.  He pled guilty on April 8, 2021.

According to court documents, Rederth was convicted in 2010 of fourth degree rape, a Class 3 Felony, in the 3rd Judicial Circuit, South Dakota.  He was sentenced to 10 years, and two years of the sentence were suspended with conditions.  As a result of his prior conviction, Rederth is classified as a Tier II sex offender, which requires him to register two times per year and update the sex offender registry within three days of any change of address, school, or place of employment.  Rederth knew of his obligation to register as a sex offender and to update his registration but failed to do so.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshal’s Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy Jehangiri prosecuted the case.

Rederth was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
