For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Idaho

BOISE – Robert Wesley Henry, III, 38, of Boise, Idaho pleaded guilty today in United States District Court to failing to register as a sex offender, Acting U.S. Attorney Rafael Gonzalez announced. Henry was indicted by a Boise grand jury on January 10, 2017.


According to the plea agreement, Henry was convicted of possession of sexually explicit images of minors in July 2011. As a result of this conviction, Henry is required to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). Henry was released from the Federal Bureau of Prisons on August 13, 2014, and began serving a ten-year period of supervised released. Henry last registered as a sex offender with the State of Idaho on November 3, 2016; however, the address he listed at that time was not where he was living. From October 31, 2016 through December 9, 2016, Henry’s probation officer attempted to contact Henry at the address he listed and Henry failed to update his sex offender registration with his new address. Henry admitted he knowingly failed to update his address as required under SORNA.


The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and the Garden City Police Department.
