U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

Acting United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Sudesh Rai, 28, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on November 14, 2023, in federal court in Omaha for possession of child pornography. Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Rai to 42 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Rai’s release from prison, he will begin a five-year term of supervised release. Rai was ordered to pay $1,100 in special assessments.

On June 1, 2021, Rai was interviewed in person by law enforcement in Omaha, Nebraska, in relation to a separate matter. During the interview law enforcement requested consent to seize and search Rai’s cell phone. Rai completed a Consent to Search Form. The data extraction and forensic review of Rai’s cell phone revealed four videos and two images of minors under the age of 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
