Lebanon Sex Offender Indicted for Failing to Register

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Lebanon, Mo., woman who was originally convicted of her role in a sex trafficking conspiracy was indicted by a federal grand jury today for failing to register as a sex offender.


Marilyn Bagley, 49, of Lebanon, was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo. Bagley remains in federal custody.


Today’s indictment alleges that Bagley knowingly failed to register or update her registration between Feb. 14, 2015, and March 18, 2015.


Bagley pleaded guilty on Dec. 6, 2012, to her role in a conspiracy to commit sex trafficking in which the victim was subjected to sadistic acts of torture over a six-year time period. Bagley was sentenced to a term of probation and is required to register as a sex offender.


On April 29, 2015, the court found that Bagley violated the terms of her probation. Bagley’s probation was revoked and she was sentenced to four years in federal prison without parole.


Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.


This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Carney. It was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.
