Alexander Scott Yossett, 28, of South Bend, Indiana was sentenced to over 24 years in a federal prison after being found guilty of committing sexual assault against a young child. After his release, he will be under supervised release for the remainder of his life, and will be required to register as a sex offender, according to the US Department of Justice.
Yossett plead guilty to sexual assault committed against a young child. The child in this case was under twelve years old.
United States District Attorney for the Western District of Michigan, Andrew Byerly Birge, states that “My office is dedicated to working these cases with our tribal, state, local, and federal partners to make sure that victims receive justice and needed services and that predators are sent away and can pose no threat to children for a very long time.”
