United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that an Aberdeen, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on August 22, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Jose David Recio, age 27, was sentenced to 30 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.

Recio was indicted by a federal grand jury in March of 2022.  He pleaded guilty on May 23, 2022.

The conviction stems from Recio failing to register as a sex offender as required by state law between December 1, 2021, and February 15, 2022.  Recio 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.

Recio was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
