Fort Thompson man gets prison for failure to register as sex offender

A Fort Thompson man convicted of failure to register as a sex offender was sentenced last week in federal court by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson said..

Stuart Dion, 30, was sentenced April 28 to 15 months in custody, five years of supervised release and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Dion was indicted by a federal grand jury on Nov. 14, 2013. He pleaded guilty on Feb. 3.

The conviction stems from Dion failing to register as a sex offender between Sept. 17, 2013, and Oct. 21, 2013. Dion was previously convicted of a sex offense in federal court and is required by federal law to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.

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