Activity For June 3 - 4, 2014

Wyoming’s Wind River SORNA completed Operation Jessica

U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming Christopher A. Crofts announced today that last week, on June 3, and June 4, 2014, on the Wind River Indian Reservation, the Wind River Sex Offender Registration Office, in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal’s Service and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, completed Operation Jessica. The Wind River Sex Offender Registration and Notification Code "WRSORNC" requires all qualifying sex offenders who work, attend school, or reside within the exterior boundaries of the Wind River Reservation, or visit the reservation for a period of 24 hours or more, to register with the Wind River SORNA Office. Every sex offender required to register with the Wind River SORNA was located during Operation Jessica and his/her address verified. Several non-compliant sex offenders were located. Sex offenders who are not properly registered or are otherwise non-compliant are prosecuted in the Shoshone and Arapaho Tribal Court or in the United States District Court.
