Sioux Falls Man Sentenced for Failure to Register

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

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on November 13, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Miles Dean Feather Earring, age 34, was sentenced to 8 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.

Feather Earring was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 4, 2018.  He pled guilty on August 2, 2018.

The conviction stems from Feather Earring failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between November 30, 2017, and March 5, 2018.  Feather Earring 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 Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

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