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

United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Bella Vista, Arkansas, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on February 28, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Jeffrey Alan Mosal, age 45, was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Mosal was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 6, 2021.  He pled guilty on November 30, 2021.

The conviction stems from Mosal failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between January 30, 2020, and April 6, 2021.  Mosal had previously been convicted of a sex offense in U.S. Circuit Court, District of Arkansas, which required him to register for 25 years.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Sioux Falls Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

Mosal was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
