Case Name:   USA v. Bobo
  Press Releases:
United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced today that Devontez Bobo, 26, of Omaha, was sentenced to 72 months’ imprisonment by United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher for transportation with intent to promote prostitution, distribution of cocaine, and felon in possession of a firearm. There is no parole in the federal system.  Bobo was ordered to serve three years on supervised release after the completion of his prison term.

On or about September 6, 2018, using an internet website identified as skipthegames.com, an adult female was advertised as an escort available in Sioux City, Iowa.  Bobo transported the female from Omaha, Nebraska to a hotel in Sioux City, Iowa, for the purpose of engaging in prostitution.  Sioux City Police officers identified Bobo, his vehicle, and the female at the hotel.  A Sioux City Police officer, acting in an undercover capacity, contacted the female using the telephone number advertised.  After providing the officer with the hotel room number, the officer arrived and was allowed entry to the room by the female for purposes of engaging in commercial sex.  Sioux City Police officers entered the room and placed the female into custody.  Hotel paperwork obtained by law enforcement revealed that Bobo rented the room where the female was detained. Sioux City Police officers subsequently encountered and arrested Bobo as he drove his vehicle away from the hotel. 

In November 2018, Bobo sold one ounce of powder cocaine and a Colt .32 caliber revolver to a confidential informant who was monitored in real time by law enforcement surveillance units. 

This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Omaha Police Department, and the Sioux City Police Department in Iowa.
