OMAHA, Neb. -- Prison time was given to an Omaha man following his child pornography conviction.

Acting U.S. Attorney Susan Lehr said 28-year-old Sudesh Rai, of Omaha, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha on Tuesday. He was convicted for possession of child pornography. Rai will serve 42 months in prison with a five-year term of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system. Rai has to pay $1,100 in special assessments.

According to authorities, Rai was interviewed in person by law enforcement in Omaha for a separate matter on June 1, 2021. 

Officials said they requested consent to take and search Rai’s cell phone. The data extraction and forensic review of Rai’s cell phone found four videos and two images of minors under the age of 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
