Two people have been sentenced to federal prison time for not signing up on Iowa’s sex offender registry. A district court judge sentenced 29-year-old Sergio Maldonado-Butler of Avoca to one year and one day in prison for failing to register as a sex offender. Police discovered in August of 2013 after responding to a disturbance call, that Maldonado-Butler was required to register as a sex offender for a 2005 rape conviction in Oregon. He pled guilty to living in Avoca for six months and not registering.
In the other case, 37-year-old Jeramie Reazer of Omaha, Nebraska was sentenced to 21 months in prison for not registering. Law officers determined Reazer was living in Mills County in May of 2013 and was required to register for a 2005 third-degree sexual assault conviction in Douglas County, Nebraska. Both men were ordered to serve 5 years probation after their release.
