Man sentenced to 2 years in Sturgis Rally sex sting

Posted: Updated:

A Rapid City, S.D. man convicted of attempted transfer of obscene material to a minor was sentenced on March 2 by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Cody Two Lance, age 35, was sentenced to 21 months of imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stemmed from Two Lance communicating with someone he believed to be a minor for the purpose of engaging in sexual acts and sending pornographic images of himself to the minor.

Two Lance was one of 10 men who were arrested and federally indicted as a result of an undercover sex trafficking operation conducted during the 2016 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, targeting people willing to pay to have sex with underage girls or boys obtained through the internet.
