Hastings Woman Sentenced for Failure to Register


A Hastings woman has been sentenced for failure to register as a sex offender.

Amber Modlin, 24, received 26 months in federal prison followed by 5 years of supervised release for the charge.

Modlin was required to register as a sex offender due to her conviction in January 2008 of attempted rape and gross sexual imposition of a victim under 13.

On October 31, 2012, the Adams County Sheriff received information that Modlin was in the State of Nebraska. Modlin did not register her change of address with the District of Nebraska as required by regulations promulgated by the state of Nebraska and the Sex Offender Notification Registration Act.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshal's Service and the Adams County Sheriff's Department.
