El Salvadoran Man Sentenced to 18 Months for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska
Acting United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Jorge Miranda-Funes, of El Salvador, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for failure to register as a sex offender and illegal reentry after a felony conviction. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Miranda-Funes to 18 months in prison. There is no parole in the federal prison system. After his release from prison, Miranda-Funes will serve 5 years of supervised release and face deportation.
Miranda-Funes was required to register as a sex offender as a result of a 2022 conviction for Attempted Child Abuse in Douglas County, Nebraska. After serving his sentence in that case, Miranda-Funes was removed from the United States to El Salvador. The investigation determined that a few months after his removal, Miranda-Funes returned to the United States illegally and resided in Omaha for approximately two months without updating his sex offender registration address.
This case was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Service and the Department of Homeland Security.
