Sioux Falls Man Charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

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

David Marrowbone, age 54, was indicted on January 17, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on January 22, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

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

The Indictment alleges that between October 23, 2017, and November 25, 2017, Marrowbone, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, did fail to register and update his registration.

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

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

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