United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on May 16, 2022, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Edward Zane Roubideaux, Jr., age 31, was sentenced to 24 months 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.

Roubideaux was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 14, 2021.  He pled guilty on February 10, 2022.

Roubideaux was convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in November 2011.  As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender.  On May 7, 2021, Roubideaux updated his sex offender registration to reflect that he was residing at an address in Sioux Falls. Roubideaux moved out of his registered address on June 30, 2021, and thereafter did not update his registration.  On August 6, 2021, Roubideaux was arrested in Sioux Falls. Between July 3, 2021, and August 6, 2021, Roubideaux failed to properly resister as a sex offender and update his registration.     

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Sioux Falls Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.

Roubideaux was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
