Iowa Man Sentenced to Seven Months Imprisonment and Seven Years of Supervised Release for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on May 11, 2015, Richard Allen Knight, 44, of Shenandoah, Iowa, was sentenced for his failure to register as a sex offender.  Senior United States District Judge Lyle E. Strom sentenced Knight to a 7-month term of imprisonment.  After his release from prison, Knight will begin a 7-year term of supervised release.

Knight was previously convicted in the State of Oregon of an offense requiring him to register as a sex offender. In July 2014, the United States Marshals Service became aware that Knight was living in Omaha, Nebraska.  It was determined that Knight had been in Nebraska for at least three months without registering as a sex offender with the Nebraska State Patrol.

This case was the result of an investigation by the United States Marshals Service.
