West Burlington Man Sentenced to 48 Months in Prison for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

DAVENPORT, IA - On December 12, 2016, Aaron Lamonte Miles, age 47, of West Burlington, Iowa, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose to 48 months in prison for failure to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, announced United States Attorney Kevin E. VanderSchel.  Miles also will be required to serve a ten-year term of supervised release following his release from imprisonment.

On June 27, 2016, Miles pleaded guilty to this charge and admitted that he had previously been convicted of three sex offenses and was required to register as a sex offender per the laws of the state in which he resides, which was most recently Iowa.  Miles failed to comply with the sex offender registry from August 24, 2015, through November 3, 2015.  During that time period, Miles traveled to Ohio without notifying either Iowa or Ohio sex offender registry officials.

The investigation was conducted by the United States Marshals Service.  This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
