Omaha Man Sentenced for Receipt of Child Pornography

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

Acting United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Robert G. Mann, 63, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for receipt of Child Pornography. United States District Court Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Mann to 66 months’ imprisonment. Mann will also be required to pay special assessments of $5,100, and a fine of $7,500. There is no parole in the federal prison system. After his release from prison, Mann will serve 5 years of supervised release. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.

In October 2018, members of a Homeland Security Investigations task force began investigating a Cyber Tipline Report from Pinterest stating that a user had uploaded an image of child pornography. On March 2, 2020, officers contacted Mann and seized several electronic devices and various storage media. Mann was employed as a custodian in the Millard Public School District. Forensic examinations showed at least 142 sexually explicit images of child saved on Mann’s devices. Mann’s devices also contained non-sexually explicit images of at least one Millard student and images of photographs of female students and others displayed around Millard schools.

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.
