A convicted sex offender who failed to register after moving back to Iowa will spend one more year in federal prison.
51-year-old Lester Ealy from Cedar Rapids received the prison term after a March 31 guilty plea to one count of failing to register as a sex offender.
According to the United States Attorney's Office, Ealy admitted to failing to register as a sex offender living in Iowa from June 2014 through February.
Ealy was required to register because he had previously been convicted of sexual assault in Nebraska state court.
He had also previously been convicted of failing to register as sex offender on four previous occasions in Iowa, Nebraska and Washington.
A U.S. District Court judge sentenced Ealy to 21 months in prison in Cedar Rapids.
A special assessment of $100 was imposed. He must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term.
There is no parole in the federal system.
Ealy is being held in the United States Marshal's custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Morfitt and investigated by the United States Marshall's Service.
