Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Sulfur Springs, Arkansas, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
Jeffrey Alan Mosal, age 44, was indicted on April 6, 2021. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 23, 2021 and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, five years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that Mosal, who had previously been convicted of a sex crime and required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, failed to do so between January 30, 2020, and April 6, 2021.
The charge is merely an accusation and Mosal is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper is prosecuting the case.
Mosal was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
