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

Acting 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 July 28, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Lawrence L. Piersol.

Steven Roubideaux, age 51, was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Roubideaux was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 2, 2021.  He pled guilty on May 3, 2021.

The conviction stems from Roubideaux failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between May 17, 2020, and May 28, 2020.  Roubideaux had previously been convicted of a sex offense in state 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.

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