A man accused of failing to properly register as a sex offender turned himself in on a Gage County warrant.
Jeremy L. Vater, 35, surrendered to deputies at the Gage County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday on an arrest warrant for violating the Nebraska Sex Offender Registration Act.
An investigator with the Gage County Sheriff’s Office had been notified by the Nebraska State Patrol that Vater had failed to update his sex offender registration information as required in August.
According to a press release, after reviewing the case the investigator completed an affidavit for arrest and forwarded it to the Gage County Attorney’s Office. A judge then issued a felony arrest warrant for Vater.
The sheriff’s office investigator had been in telephone contact with Vater and members of his family and convinced him to surrender himself on the warrant.
