Sex Offender Sent to Prison

Adam Rashid Akida 25, was sentenced to three years in prison today for a sexual assault which occurred in Rice County in 2013.  Akida pled guilty to Criminal Sexual Conduct in Third Degree in 2013.  At the time, the court entered a guidelines sentence of 3 years in prison, stayed and placed Akida on probation. 

Akida had admitted to sexual contact with a 15 year old girl.  In early 2015, Akida violated his probation by leaving the country and moving to Tanzania.  In May Akida, came back to the United States and was arrested when he landed in Chicago based on a Rice County Warrant. Akida was extradited to Rice County from Illinois.

Today the court revoked Akida’s probation and sentenced him to prison for 3 years with 10 years of supervised release following his release from prison.  “Akida showed he was unable to comply with the conditions of his probation and the court correctly revoked the stayed sentence” Rice County Attorney John Fossum said.  Fossum argued the probation case to the court.
