Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that an Oacoma, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on December 13, 2021, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.
Darrell Bear Robe, age 32, was sentenced to twelve months and one day in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Bear Robe was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 11, 2021. He pled guilty on September 23, 2021.
Bear Robe was convicted in 2008 for Abusive Sexual Contact. As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender and to update his registration under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. Between October 25, 2020, and November 25, 2020, Bear Robe moved out of his previously registered address and failed to update his registration with a new address.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Lyman County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.
Bear Robe was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
