Sex Offender Sentenced To Prison For Failing To Register

A sex offender who failed to register with authorities was sentenced today to over three years in federal prison.

Dana Curry, 41, from Waterloo, Iowa, received the prison term after a March 25, 2013, guilty plea to one count of failing to register as a sex offender.

At the guilty plea, Curry admitted to failing to properly update his sex offender registration in Iowa from June 2010 through November 28, 2012. Curry was required to register because he was convicted in Arapahoe County, Colorado, of one count of Second Degree Sexual Assault.

Curry was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Curry was sentenced to 37 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. He must also serve an 8-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Curry is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Morfitt and was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Service and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
