The sentence of a convicted sex offender expires on Friday and he'll be released from prison.
51-year-old Michael Pigney was sentenced to 15 years for sexual contact with a child in Davison County. He's indicated he plans to live in Rapid City when he is released.
South Dakota Corrections Secretary Denny Kaemingk is providing notification to law enforcement and the public about Pigney's plans.
"Based on his criminal history, he presents a continued risk to the community. I believe it to be prudent to alert law enforcement and the public of this pending release from prison," Kaemingk said in a news release.
