SD: This South Dakota man was removed from sex offender registry after 10 years: ‘You still have the chance’

Source: 5/1/22

Taylor Hughes was stuck in Mitchell because the roads to Plankinton were closed. A spring snowstorm had blown in and the convicted sex offender had no way to get back to his home.

It was 2018, and Hughes had three years left before he could petition to be removed from the sex offender registry. His mom had suggested he stay at her apartment for a day or two.

If it was longer than three days though, Hughes was risking his chance to start over, since sex offenders are required to register new living addresses within three days of moving, according to state law. And if they fail to do so, it’s a class six felony.

But what Hughes didn’t expect was the storm to last four days, leaving the former dishwasher at Blarney’s Sportsbar & Grill to stay with his mom while completing his weekend evening shifts.

“Someone called me in, saying I was living there,” he said. “Seeing that I didn’t register that address — I was only there for four days, because of the snowstorm over a weekend — they [the police] decided to charge me.”

That charge, failing to register, meant the difference between Hughes’s name staying on the sex registry list or being struck from it.
