Eagle Butte Man, Sylvan Larrabee Indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

(STL.News) Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Sylvan Larrabee, age 28, was indicted on May 11, 2021.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 19, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund on each count.  Restitution may also be ordered.

Larrabee was convicted of Sexual Contact With a Minor in January 2017.  As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender.  The Indictment alleges that between April 17, 2020, and February 8, 2021, Larrabee, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of conviction under Federal Law, failed to properly register as a sex offender and update his registration.

The charge is merely accusations and Larrabee is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.

Larrabee was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
