SEX OFFENDER INDICTED FOR FAILURE TO REGISTER
Lisa Marie Rasho, 32, formerly of Boise, Idaho, was arraigned in United States District Court in this morning on charges of violating the Sex Offender Notification and Registration Act, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.
Rasho was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 13. The indictment alleges that Rasho was required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), by reason of her 2009 conviction in Ada County for the crime of sexual abuse of a minor child under the age of sixteen years. It further alleges that Rasho left Idaho and traveled to Michigan in November 2010 and knowingly failed to register and update a registration as required by SORNA. Rasho was arrested in Michigan.
A jury trial is set for July 5 in Boise before U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge. Rasho is in custody pending trial.
The case is being investigated by the United States Marshals Service.
An indictment is only an allegation of criminal conduct and is not evidence of guilt. A person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
