Macy Man Sentenced for Sexual Assault

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

United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Talis Dale, 23, of Macy, Nebraska, was sentenced today for sexual abuse of a minor. Chief United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Dale to 6½ years’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison, Dale will begin a six-year term of supervised release.

In May of 2022, Dale intentionally touched, not through the clothing, the genitalia of a minor female who was 12 years old. Dale admitted to touching the minor to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person. The minor was in her room going to sleep when Dale touched her. The minor had to raise her voice to get Dale to stop. The following morning, the minor reported what happened and law enforcement were notified. Investigation revealed Dale returned later and attempted to commit another sexual act with the minor.  

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
