A Lincoln man will spend the next year in federal prison for failing to register as a sex offender.

United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Charles Hamilton, 47 of Lincoln, Nebraska, to 12 months in federal prison followed by 5 years of supervised release.

Hamilton was required to register as a sex offender due to a 1998 conviction for sexual assault of a child from Wood County, Wisconsin, according to U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg.

In April, he was stopped by the Lincoln Police Department, and at that time gave a false name of “Barry Davis” to the officer.

Further investigation identified Hamilton through fingerprints as a sex offender wanted out of Wisconsin.

He admitted that he was aware of his responsibilities to register as a sex offender in Nebraska, but had failed to do so.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshal’s Service.
