A Gage County man was arrested this week for allegedly failing to properly register as a sex offender.
Michael L. Bennett, 57, was arrested by an investigator from the Gage County Sheriff’s Office in the lobby of the sheriff’s office on a warrant for violating the Nebraska Sex Offender Registration Act.
A Gage County investigator was notified earlier this month by the Nebraska State Patrol Sex Offender Registration Unit that Bennett was one of two people who had failed to verify his sex offender registration information during August. The sheriff’s office investigator conducted an investigation and forwarded an affidavit for an arrest warrant for the two individuals to the Gage County Attorney’s Office.
An arrest warrant was issued for Bennett on Monday. Bennett called the sheriff’s office the following day and after speaking with an investigator, came to the sheriff’s office and surrendered on the warrant.
An arrest warrant is still active for the other registered sex offender and deputies and investigators will follow-up with attempting to locate him.
