Omaha Man Sentenced for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced today that Lucas J. Lacy, 32, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender.  The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, Chief Judge, sentenced Lacy to 18 months’ imprisonment.  After his release from prison, Lacy will be under a 10-year term of supervised release.

In February 2009, Lacy was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment for receiving and distributing child pornography.  After his release from prison, he began a five-year term of supervised release.  During the course of supervision, his release was revoked and he was sent back to prison for nine months. 

On November 7, 2017, Lacy was arrested in Omaha, Nebraska.  He had failed to register his address with the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry.

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 United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), 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.

Sex Offender Registry violations are investigated by the United States Marshal Service.
