Omaha Man Sentenced For Failing To Register As A Sex Offender
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that James E. Chambers, 48, was sentenced after moving to Nebraska and failing to register as a sex offender. The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Chambers to 18 months in prison. After his release from prison Chambers will begin a five year term of supervised release.
Chambers was convicted in the State of Michigan in 1997 of Criminal Sexual Conduct, Third Degree. After serving his sentence he was, and remains, required to register as a sex offender for life.
Chambers left the State of Michigan and came to Nebraska to live and work. He worked in Omaha for eleven months without notifying Michigan that he had moved and without registering in Nebraska as a sex offender. Chambers was arrested by the United States Marshal’s Service in June, 2012.
