Sioux Falls Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Ron Parson announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on April 19, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

David Marrowbone, age 55, was sentenced to 17 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.

Marrowbone was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 17, 2018.  He pled guilty on February 20, 2018.

Between October 23, 2017, and November 25, 2017, Marrowbone, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of a conviction under Federal Law, did knowingly fail to register and update his registration.  

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

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