2 Nebraskans Sentenced for Failing to Register as Sex Offenders

sex-offenders(AP) — Two Nebraska men are in federal prison after being sentenced recently for failing to register as sex offenders.

U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says in a news release that 32-year-old Stephen Wilson, of Bellevue, was sentenced Friday in Omaha’s federal court to 30 months in prison.

Authorities say it was at least the second time that Wilson, who was initially convicted in Iowa for enticing a minor, has failed to register as a sex offender.

Gilg also says 32-year-old Phillip Hagerman, of Hastings, was sentenced Friday in Lincoln’s federal court to 15 months in prison.

Hagerman had been registered as a sex offender in Kentucky since 2007, but did not register as a sex offender when he moved to Nebraska in 2013.

There is no parole in the federal system.
