United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Marshall, Minnesota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on March 29, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Brody Lee Chase Hancock, age 29, was sentenced to 10 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.

Hancock was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 7, 2021.  He pled guilty on January 4, 2022.

The conviction stems from Hancock failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between December 1, 2020, and July 7, 2021.  Hancock had previously been convicted of a sex offense in the state of Minnesota, which requires him to register for 15 years upon his release from prison.

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

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