Sentencing before United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Albert remains in custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing. Albert faces a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $500,000 fine, and a lifetime of supervised release following any imprisonment.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Lisa C. Williams and Emily K. Nydle and was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Meskwaki Nation Police Department, the Tama City Police Department, and the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
