Iowa Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender | USAO-SD

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Sioux City, Iowa, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on September 13, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Jacob Lee Schmidt, age 32, was sentenced to 17 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.

Schmidt was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 4, 2021.  He pled guilty on June 23, 2021.

The conviction stems from Schmidt failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between February 1, 2021, and May 4, 2021.  Schmidt had previously been convicted of a sex offense in state court which requires him to register for the rest of his life.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

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