Ricky Journey - Repeat Sex Offender - Pedophile just couldn't stop

  • Conviction date: 8/21/2008
    Attempted Sexual Assault of a Child 2nd Degree F3
  • Conviction date: 11/8/1996
    Sexual Assault of a Child F4
  • Conviction date: 4/6/1992
    2nd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child F4

A Kearney man already listed as a Level 3 sex offender has been sentenced to 15 to 20 years in prison for the attempted sexual assault of a child.

Ricky Journey was convicted Aug. 21. The crime occurred in April.

Level 3 offenders are those deemed most likely to reoffend.

Journey's listing on the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry says he had a 1996 conviction for sexually assaulting a child in Buffalo County and a 1992 conviction in Denver on a similar charge.

Deputy Buffalo County Attorney Melanie Young says Journey can't be allowed in the public because he's a pedophile.

The 54-year-old said in court Wednesday that he was sorry for what he did and that he should have talked to his family about his problem years ago.
