According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Cook admitted that from Oct. 20, 2017, through Nov. 18, he knowingly failed to register or update his registration as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. Evidence showed that beginning in April 2018, Cook registered at two different Sioux City addresses but lived in neither of them.

Cook was required to register as a sex offender because of a 2007 sexual abuse conviction in Nebraska.
