MACY, Neb. -- It was announced Friday that 24-year-old Darrian K. Grant, of Macy, was sentenced to 15 months in prison. 

Acting United States Attorney Steven Russell said Grant was sentenced  by Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. to 15 months in prison for failing to register as a sex offender as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

Upon his release, Grant will serve a 5-year term of Supervised Release. There is no parole in the federal system. 

According to court documents, on June 12, 2020, Grant was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska.

As a result of this conviction, Grant was required to register pursuant to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

On June 19, 2021, Grant registered as a sex offender in the state of Nebraska at an address that was not a legitimate address and was an empty lot. This address is near the Omaha Housing Authority’s Jackson Tower.

Law enforcement contacted the Jackson Tower residents in the apartment number Grant had listed on his registration.

They stated that Grant had resided with them for two days in December of 2021.

From early January 2022, Grant had been residing on the Omaha Indian Reservation in Macy with family.

Grant never updated his registration to reflect moving from the alleged Omaha address or to reflect his residing on the Omaha Indian Reservation.
