For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Baraboo, Wisconsin, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on October 2, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

James Nault-Hart, age 29, was sentenced to 26 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.

Nault-Hart was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 14, 2016.  He pled guilty on July 17, 2017.

The conviction stems from Nault-Hart failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between September 12, 2016, and October 5, 2016.  Nault-Hart had previously been convicted of a sex offense in Sault County, Wisconsin.  He absconded from parole supervision and came to South Dakota, where he failed to register as a sex offender.

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

Nault-Hart was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
