Iowa Man Sentenced for Cyberstalking and Failure to Pay Child Support

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Council Bluffs, Iowa, man convicted of Cyberstalking and Failure to Pay Legal Child Support was sentenced on November 19, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Daniel Lee Vincent, Jr., age 32, was sentenced to 71 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $200.

Vincent was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 7, 2017.  He pled guilty on August 30, 2018.

In February 2017, Vincent posted advertisements on the internet website Craigslist for the Sioux Falls location, that included a previous intimate partner’s name, employment location, and cell phone number.  The advertisements depicted nude photos of the female, claimed she wanted to have sex, and requested photos from interested men.  The victim reported the matter to the Sioux Falls Police Department after strange men started sending naked pictures of themselves to her phone and started showing up at her place of employment.

Vincent previously had a child with the victim, but failed to pay court ordered child support, which exceeded $10,000.  At the time of sentencing, the child support arrearages were over $19,000.

This case was investigated by the Sioux Falls Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

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