Lincoln Man Receives 13 Years for Possessing Child Pornography

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced today that Glenn L. Ogden, age 53 of Lincoln, was sentenced in federal court in Lincoln for possessing child pornography.  The Honorable John M. Gerrard sentenced Ogden to a 13 year term of imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison Ogden will be on supervised release for 20 years and be required to register as a sex offender.

Ogden had previously been convicted in Stanton and Madison Counties in Nebraska in 2002 for possessing child pornography.  He received sentences of probation and 30 days in jail.

In January 2014 an Investigator with the Nebraska State Patrol, acting in an undercover capacity, was contacted by Ogden.  During online chats Ogden expressed an interest in meeting the undercover with the intent of engaging in sexual relations with a four-year-old girl.  Ogden sent 14 images of child pornography, 10 of which involved prepubescent minors, to the undercover investigator.

Ogden was arrested after he traveled from Lincoln to Kearney, Nebraska to meet the undercover investigator.  At the time of his arrest Ogden had a Dora the Explorer doll and condoms in his vehicle.

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg commended the Nebraska State Patrol for the investigation and arrest of this dangerous predator.  She expressed her appreciation to the Patrol and the Internet Crimes Against Children agencies that it oversees for their diligent efforts in protecting the children of Nebraska.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.  Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit
