United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on June 27, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Jeffery Leo Larvie, age 39, was sentenced to five 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.

Larvie was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 1, 2022.  He pled guilty on April 4, 2022.

The conviction stems from Larvie failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between September 22, 2021, and February 1, 2022.  Larvie had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court which requires him to register for the rest of his life.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

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