United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Cordeus Lamont Rainey, age 38, was sentenced in federal court Monday, in Omaha, Nebraska, for one count of Failing to Register as a Sex Offender in violation of the Federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (“SORNA”). The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Rainey to 21 months of imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After completing his term of imprisonment, Rainey will begin a five-year term of supervised release.
On about June 25, 2002, Rainey was convicted in Kansas of Attempted Aggravated Indecent Solicitation of a Child. Based upon Rainey’s conviction, he was required to register as a sex offender for life in Kansas and he was subject to the reporting requirements of SORNA. Beginning about March 31, 2017, to on or about August 20, 2018, Rainey was living and working in Nebraska. Rainey had never registered as a sex offender in Nebraska.
The case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and the Columbus Police Department.
