St. Francis Man Indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
Gregory Paul Quigley, a/k/a Greg Paul Quigley, age 53, was indicted on April 17, 2018. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 19, 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, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
Quigley was convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact in July 2016. As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender.

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