PITTSBURGH - A former resident of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 33 months imprisonment, followed by five years supervised release, on a charge of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

Senior United States District Judge Donetta W. Ambrose imposed the sentence on Arthur Linsenbigler, 46, whose last known address was in Pitcairn, Pennsylvania.

According to information presented to the court, from February 3, 2015, to June 20, 2016, Linsenbigler, who had been convicted of the felony sex offense of Rape By Forcible Compulsion in 1991, failed, as required, to register and update a registration under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

Assistant United States Attorney Jessica Lieber Smolar prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Acting U.S. Attorney Song commended the United States Marshals Service for conducting the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Linsenbigler.
