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

United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on February 28, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Chester Dennis Marshall, age 55, was sentenced to five years of supervised release and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Marshall was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 4, 2021.  He pled guilty on October 25, 2021.

The conviction stems from Marshall failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between January 2, 2021, and January 25, 2021.  Marshall had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which required him to register for the rest of his life.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Office.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.
