Winnebago Man Sentenced For Failure to Register As A Sex Offender

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

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.
