A former Nebraska City resident has been sentenced to nine-and-a-half years in federal prison for receiving and distributing child pornography.
The United States Attorney’s Office reports 32-year-old Corey Hayes will have been be on supervised release for 10 years after serving his prison sentence. Hayes will be required to register as a sex offender.
Federal prosecutors say an undercover agent with the Department of Homeland Security began chatting with Hayes online in late 2015. Hayes thought he was communicating with a teen-ager and offered to meet her to have sex. Hayes sent photographs of himself to the agent. Hayes also sent child pornography using another chat application.
Federal agents served a search warrant on the Hayes residence in Falls City in early 2016 and found 153 files of child pornography on various devices in the house.
