Pocatello Man Sentenced for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

BOISE - Corry Blackmoon Bischoff, 39, of Pocatello, Idaho, was sentenced yesterday in United States District Court to 33 months in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release for failing to register as a sex offender, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.  Bischoff pleaded guilty on September 13, 2016.

According to the plea agreement, Bischoff was convicted of rape in Madison County, Idaho in 1997.  As a result of the conviction, Bischoff was required to register and update his registration under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).  Bischoff last registered as a sex offender in Idaho in August of 2013.  In September of 2013, the State of Idaho Commissions of Pardons and Parole issued a warrant for Bischoff’s arrest for violating his parole conditions.  On January 4, 2016, officers with the Vancouver, Washington police arrested Bischoff on the State of Idaho parole warrant.  Bischoff had not updated his registry in Idaho prior to moving to Washington, and had not registered as a sex offender in the State of Washington.

The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service (USMS), and the Idaho Department of Correction, Bureau of Probation and Parole.
