Transient Man Sentenced For Failure To Register As Sex Offender

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Ozzie Scott., age 38, was sentenced by Chief United States District Court Judge  Laurie Smith Camp for his conviction for failure to register as a sex offender.  Scott was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment to be followed by five years of supervised release.

Scott, a transient, was originally convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child in Texas in 2003.  In 2010, he was convicted in Texas of failure to register as a sex offender.  In October of 2015, Scott came to Nebraska and began living with friends.  However, he was subsequently kicked out of that residence and stayed at several different places in Omaha, but had no stable residence.  During the time he was in Omaha, Scott failed to register as a sex offender with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Office.
