Two Gang Members Sentenced for Sexual Assault and Firearms Charges
For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska
United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that two No Name Demon gang members were sentenced on May 11, 2023 for their roles in the video recorded gang rapes of two minor females in Lincoln, Nebraska. One victim was 16 years old at the time of the assault and the other was 14 years old. Senior United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Isaiah Dorsey, 21, of Lincoln to 240 months, or 20 years, in federal prison for conspiracy to produce child pornography. Krysean Reynolds, 21, of Lincoln, Nebraska was sentenced to 200 months in federal prison for producing child pornography.
Investigation revealed that the gang members were tricking young women into Reynolds’s home and then forcing them to participate in painful sexual acts with multiple gang members at the same time, and one victim had a cut glass bottle forced inside her body against her will. Reynolds and Dorsey recorded the rapes and shared them in the No Name Demon’s group Snapchat. Each of the defendants also pleaded guilty to participating in a firearms conspiracy in furtherance of drug trafficking with other gang members and received concurrent sentences for those offenses of 70 months in federal prison. There is no parole in the federal system. In addition, at the end of their respective terms of federal imprisonment, each of the defendants will be placed on a term of supervised release for 10 years.
Judge Gerrard described the video recorded rapes of the two underage teenage girls as “unspeakable sexual assaults,” and “horrendous” crimes. Judge Gerrard went on to state that young men who are willing to join gangs, tote guns, and promote violence on social media need to be prepared to do serious time. The Court promised to protect the public from these senseless violent acts.
