Cahokia Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
Jackie Ray Logan, a 50-year old Cahokia, Illinois, man was sentenced on September 10, 2012, in Federal District Court in East St. Louis, IL, on one count of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. Logan was sentenced to 18 months in prison, five years of supervised release, fined $100, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment.
The violation occurred between June, 2011, and December, 2011, when Logan walked away from a St. Louis Community Release Center where he had been residing. He then traveled in interstate commerce to the State of Illinois, and moved in with his wife in Cahokia. Logan was aware that he was required to either update his sex offender registration in Missouri to reflect this change of address, or register as a sex offender in Illinois. Logan had been convicted on August 17, 2007, in St. Louis County Circuit Court on two counts of criminal sexual abuse.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
