Todd County Man Indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Todd County, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Kameron Lamont Jackson, age 26, was indicted on November 14, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 26, 2019, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

Jackson was convicted of Attempted Sexual Abuse of a Minor and Abusive Sexual Contact in May 2013.  As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender for a period of 25 years.  It is alleged that between October 3, 2018, and November 14, 2018, Jackson, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of conviction under Federal Law, failed to properly register as a sex offender.

The charge is merely an accusation and Jackson is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Elmore is prosecuting the case.   

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