Repeat Offender Sentenced for Possession of Child Pornography

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

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Thomas Janes, 29, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on February 29, 2024, in federal court in Omaha for possessing child pornography. United States District Court Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Jane to 120 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Janes release from prison, he will begin a 10-year term of supervised release.

Janes was on supervised release following his release from prison for a previous child pornography possession offense when his probation officer developed suspicion Janes was using an unapproved internet connected device. A search was executed at his home and his electronic devices were later forensically searched, revealing Janes was in possession of child pornography.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
