FORT THOMPSON - An area man pleaded not guilty in April to a federal charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

Stuart Dion, 32, of Fort Thompson, was indicted for failure to register on Dec. 8 and pleaded not guilty in U.S. magistrate court on April 29.

Dion "knowingly failed to register and update his registration" between Oct. 1 and Dec. 8, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler.

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

The U.S. Marshals Service is conducting the investigation, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan Dilges is prosecuting the case. A trial date has not been set.
