Man Sentenced for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury

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

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Tyrece Thomas, 23, of Macy, Nebraska, was sentenced on April 26, 2024, in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Chief United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., sentenced Thomas to 24 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Thomas’s release from prison, he will begin a 2-year term of supervised release.

In May 2023, Thomas assaulted an adult male, knocking him unconscious, before then continuing to strike, kick, and stomp on the victim. Thomas’s assault resulted in serious injuries to the victim which required medical attention, including a broken jaw. When a third party attempted to help the victim, who was lying unconscious in a roadway, Thomas kicked the third party in the face, breaking that person’s nose.

This case was charged in United States District Court as there is federal jurisdiction under the Major Crimes Act for felony assaults on an Indian Reservation. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
