Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man previously convicted of felony sex crimes, appeared in federal court.
Jeremiah Calvin Rederth, age 38, made his appearance from U.S. Penitentiary – Leavenworth, in Leavenworth, Kansas, before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy. Rederth pled guilty to the Indictment returned against him for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
According to court documents, Rederth was convicted in 2010 of fourth degree rape, a Class 3 Felony, in the 3rd Judicial Circuit, South Dakota. He was sentenced to 10 years, and 2 years of the sentence were suspended with conditions. As a result of his prior conviction, Rederth is classified as a Tier II sex offender, which requires him to register 2 times per year and update the sex offender registry within 3 days of any change of address, school, or place of employment. Rederth knew of his obligation to register as a sex offender and to update his registration, but failed to do so.
This investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri is prosecuting the case.
Rederth was remanded to custody to continue serving his sentence for other conduct. A sentencing date has not been set.
