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

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Timothy Sousa, age 58, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on April 25, 2024, in federal court in Omaha for transportation of child pornography.  Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Sousa to 120 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Sousa’s release from prison, he will begin a 5-year term of supervised release. Sousa was ordered to pay $15,000 in restitution to the victims depicted in the images.  

On September 6, 2022, Timothy Sousa uploaded 161 images of children engaging in sexually explicit conduct to his Gmail account while using the internet.  Google reported this activity, and the Nebraska State Patrol was ultimately notified.

On February 7, 2023, the Nebraska State Patrol executed a search warrant at Sousa’s residence in Omaha, Nebraska. During the warrant, Sousa agreed to speak with law enforcement and stated he would view young girls in bikinis with “maybe a nipple slip or something.” Numerous devices of Sousa’s were seized during the search warrant to include hard drives, a computer, and a flash drive. A search warrant was also conducted for Sousa’s Google account. Sousa was in possession of 5,222 images and videos of child pornography.

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol.
