BEATRICE – A district judge has turned down a delay in sentencing and request for probation, for a man convicted of a Sex Offender Registry violation.
35-year-old Tee Cheramie was ordered to serve a three-year state prison sentence, and 18 months post-release supervision.
A pre-sentence investigation report had not been completed because the defendant had not met with state probation.
Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner overruled a defense motion for a new sentencing date. In denying probation, Schreiner cited Cheramie’s 20-year criminal history, including similar offenses.

Cheramie was convicted of not reporting a change in address to the sheriff’s office, as required by law.
Cheramie was convicted of attempted 1st-degree sexual assault of a minor in 2005 in Gage County and was on a 25-year registration requirement.
He was given credit off his prison term for 47 days spent in custody.
