Convicted Sex Offender From Lee County Sentenced to Three Years in Federal Prison and Twenty Years of Supervision for Failing to Register
Montgomery, Alabama - Gregory J. Schliecker, a resident of Lee County, Alabama, was sentenced to three years in federal prison for a federal felony conviction for failing to register as a sex offender, United States Attorney George L. Beck, Jr., announced today.
A federal grand jury indicted Schliecker in October, 2011, for one count of failing to register and update a registration as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after he traveled in interstate commerce in violation of federal law. Schliecker was convicted of two counts of second degree rape in Alabama in 2002. Due to these convictions, Schliecker was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of ten years with the Alabama Department of Corrections. During Schliecker’s guilty plea hearing, he admitted that he knew that, as a convicted sex offender, he was required to register and that if he moved to another state he must register in that state no later than 72 hours after he established residence in the new state. Further, Schliecker admitted that he traveled from Georgia to Alabama in March 2011 and relocated to Lee County, but he did not register as a sex offender in the State of Alabama.
United States District Judge Mark E. Fuller sentenced Schliecker to thirty-six (36) months imprisonment to be followed by twenty (20) years of supervised release. Schliecker remains in the custody of the United States Marshals Service pending placement by the Bureau of Prisons.
This case was investigated jointly by the United States Marshals Service and Lee County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Jerusha T. Adams prosecuted the case.
