York man sentenced for child pornography conviction
YORK, Neb. -- More than five years in prison was given to a man from York following his child pornography conviction.
Acting U.S. Attorney Susan Lehr said 36-year-old Jerry Lackey, of York, was sentenced in federal court in Lincoln on Thursday. He was convicted for receipt, distribution and possession of child pornography. Lackey will serve 64 months in prison with a seven-year term of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system.
Court documents state that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reported a CyberTip in December 2022 to the Nebraska State Patrol that someone was sending child porn to others. The report had the email address, username, and IP address connected to the offending account, along with numerous offending videos.
Officials said they got subpoenas and were able to identify the subscriber as Lackey. A search warrant for the home was used while Lackey was there. Lackey admitted to downloading and viewing the child porn.
This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol.
