North Platte Registered Sex Offender Gets Prison on New Child Sex Assault Charge

Donald Warfield

A 70-year-old registered sex offender will be going back to prison after being sentenced in Lincoln County District Court on a new charge of sexually assaulting a child.

Donald Warfield, of North Platte, was sentenced to five years in prison on Monday.

Prosecutors say a 15-year-old girl told investigators last year that Warfield began giving her presents touching her inappropriately when she was about 7 years old. She said the incidents continued for three or four years and progressively became worse.

Warfield registered as a sex offender after being convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old in 2002. In addition, he was arrested last year for failing to properly register as a sex offender. He later pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
