St. Francis Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on January 31, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Ennors Quick Bear, age 28, was sentenced to 15 months in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Quick Bear was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 12, 2016. He pled guilty on November 14, 2016.
Quick Bear was convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in federal court in September 2012. As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender and to update his registration within three business days of relocating or changing employment. In June 2016, Bear registered with an address in St. Francis. On August 9, 2016, Bear moved to a different address in St. Francis, but did not update his registration. Bear was on federal supervised release at the time and a warrant was issued for his arrest. On September 15, 2016, Bear was arrested at a house in St. Francis without incident. Bear did not update his sex offender registration between August 12, 2016, and September 15, 2016, as required by law.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
Quick Bear was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
