Sex Offender Sentenced to 33 months for Failing to Register
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Timothy Kirsch, 31, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha for failing to register as a sex offender. The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon, Senior Judge, sentenced Kirsch to a 33 month term of imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison Kirsch will begin a 10 year term of supervised release.
Kirsch was convicted in Page County, Iowa in 2002 of Lascivious Acts with a Child. He was later convicted in Louisiana for failing to register as a sex offender.
Kirsch reported to Iowa authorities that he would be living in Nebraska. He resided at two separate residences in Omaha and failed to register either residence 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 Attorneys' 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.
