Military veteran and convicted sex offender Jacob Blair Scott was sentenced Monday to 21 months in federal prison on three counts of faking his own death off the coast of Alabama to avoid prosecution for state sex crimes in Mississippi.
Scott is already serving an 85-year sentence for sexually assaulting and impregnating a girl in Jackson County when he was 40 and she was 14. A Jackson County jury convicted him of the state charges in June.
In the federal case in August, Scott pleaded guilty to sending a false 911 call, illegally shipping a gun across state lines and providing false information, court filings show.
Judge Jeffrey Beaverstock on Monday sentenced Scott to 21 months each, with each of the sentences coming at the same time as the 85-year state sentence he is serving after his Mississippi sex crimes conviction.
In addition, the judge ordered him to pay the Coast Guard $17,165 in compensation to cover costs of deploying various resources, such as , Coast, to Scott after he faked his death.
Military veteran admits faking his own death to avoid MS Coast sex abuse charges
Assistant US Attorney Michael Anderson in Mobile prosecuted the federal case.

The Orange Beach Police Department responded to a call for help after Scott's small dingy boat was found in Gulf waters about a mile from shore with a .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol attached. The dinghy was empty except for a suicide note.
Scott had also left suicide notes to relatives, instructing them to keep the same phone numbers for a year after his disappearance.
He cashed a check for $45,000 and disappeared. Did the family know that the fugitive from the coast had faked his own death?
After a week of searching, authorities later determined that Scott faked his death to avoid prosecution in Mississippi.
Orange Beach, Alabama, police discovered the abandoned dinghy about a mile offshore on July 7, 2018. Inside the boat, police found a suicide note and a gun attached to the boat. US Marshals believe Scott faked his own death before pleading guilty to 14 counts of sex crimes against an underage girl.
Authorities arrested Scott in early 2020 at an Oklahoma RV park where he was living under the name of a former colleague at Chevron's Pascagoula Refinery. The former colleague, whose identity Scott stole, told the Sun Herald early on that he had no idea Scott had used his identity.

Scott is a military veteran who was awarded a Purple Heart in 2011 for injuries sustained while serving in Iraq. After his disappearance, Scott was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service named one of the 15 Most Wanted Fugitives.
During his trial, Scott admitted to having sex with the underage girl but tried to blame her and others for the sex crimes he committed against the minor.
