Wymore Man Given Probation on Attempted Sex Offender Violation

BEATRICE – A conviction for an attempted sex offender registry violation has resulted in a probation term for a Wymore man.

46-year-old Cledale Caldwell will serve a 30-month probation sentence for the conviction in Gage County District Court.

The probation term was a joint recommendation in a plea agreement between the state and defense.   Caldwell’s attorney, Jessica Meyer, says the case involved a violation of the law regarding a vehicle Caldwell had purchased for his wife.

Tracking registration of vehicles is part of the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry law.

Caldwell, who has been employed at a Jefferson County manufacturer for over three years, has been required to register as a convicted sex offender for the past ten years.  District Judge Julie Smith noted that Caldwell has had a good record for several years.

Caldwell was also ordered to pay court costs and serve four, 15-day jail terms, but that time during the probation can be waived if he abides by terms of the sentence.

Caldwell is on a lifetime sex offender registration requirement.  He is required to register as a sex offender in Nebraska because of two Wyandotte County, Kansas convictions, in 2001.
