Sex Offender Sentenced for Failing to Register
POCATELLO — Tyler Zane Clem, 21, of North Little Rock, Arkansas, was sentenced yesterday in United States District Court to 18 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for failing to register as a sex offender, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Clem was indicted by a federal grand Jury in Pocatello on August 28, 2013, and entered his guilty plea on January 29, 2014.
According to the plea agreement, Clem was convicted in June 2012 of sexual assault in the second degree in Arkansas and required to register as a sex offender. Clem left a half-way house in North Little Rock, Arkansas, on June 28, 2013, and eventually traveled to Pocatello, Idaho, where he was arrested on August 9, 2013. Although Clem had registered as a sex offender when living in Arkansas, he failed to update his registry after leaving the half-way house and did not register in Idaho after his arrival, as is required by law.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service, with the assistance of the Pocatello Police Department.
