Sidney man sentenced in child porn case

SIDNEY, NE — A Sidney man knows how much time he will spend in prison after being sentenced in Cheyenne County Thursday.

Jamie Daniels has been sentenced to 5-10 years in prison, according to court documents. He will also be required to register as a sex offender. Daniels was given credit for 190 days served. 

Daniels was convicted on four charges of felony Distribution of Sexually Explicit Conduct of a Minor." Daniels pleaded guilty to those four charges. The other charges he was facing were dropped. 

The court's sentence brings to an end a case that started when a Texas-based vigilante group drove to Sidney, confronted Daniels and presented evidence of wrongdoing to local authorities. Charges were initially declined since the member of the group who pretended to be a minor when talking to Daniels was not associated with law enforcement. 

Police then conducted their own investigation and arrested Daniels in early December 2020.
