A Wymore man was arrested on a felony warrant this week after failing to follow registration requirements as a sex offender.
Earlier this month the Gage County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a suspected violation of the Nebraska Sex Offender Registration Act by 71-year-old Gregory Lauby of Wymore.
According to the Nebraska sex offender registry, Lauby was convicted in June 2005 of first degree sexual assaulting a minor in Cheyenne County and was convicted of sexual exploitation of a child in Adams County, Colo. in August 2007.
Prior to his 2005 conviction, Lauby was working as deputy Cheyenne County attorney when he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl. He was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison following his conviction.
According to a press release from the sheriff's department, Lauby is designated as a lifetime registrant by the Nebraska State Patrol and is required to report changes of personal information to the sheriff’s office and verify the information quarterly.
Lauby was required to report in March, in person, at the sheriff’s office to verify his information. On April 1, investigators were notified by the State Patrol that Lauby had not verified his information.
A felony arrest warrant for failing to verify his information as a registered sex offender was issued. The press release stated that Lauby, who is on probation, was ordered by his probation officer to surrender to the sheriff’s office. However after several hours he had not shown up to surrender.
A Wymore police officer went to Lauby’s house at 312 N. 10th St. and placed him under arrest without incident.
