Winnebago Man Sentenced For Failure to Register As A Sex Offender
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Lawrence A. Smith, age 20, of Winnebago, Nebraska, was sentenced for his conviction for failing to register as a sex offender. Chief United States District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Smith to 18 months of imprisonment to be followed by 5 years of supervised release.
Smith is required to register as a sex offender for life as a result of his prior conviction in the District of Nebraska for a sexual assault. Although Smith did register in Sioux City, Iowa, while he was at a halfway house, he failed to register when he left the facility and went to live on the Omaha Indian Reservation.
The case was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Service.
