OMAHA, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska man will spend nearly four years in prison for sexual assault of a minor after impregnating a 12-year-old girl.

U.S. Attorney Steven Russell announced Thursday that 24-year-old Juwan Grant, of Decatur, was sentenced in federal court for sexual abuse of a minor.

Grant was sentenced to 46 months in prison. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison, he will begin a 5-year term of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender.

Grant impregnated the pre-teen victim in the early months of 2021 on the Omaha Nation Indian Reservation. The child was carried to term and was born in November of 2021. The victim was 12 years old at the time of the offense. Grant was 10 years older.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
