Lincoln Man Lands in Jail for 60 years after Judge found him Guilty of Child Pornography

A senior federal court handed down a 60-year jail term to a Lincoln man for his role in creating and possessing child pornography. Also, he’ll have to be under supervision for the rest of his life.

The production and possession of child pornography led to the sentencing of 53-year-old Warren Coker, whose real name is Amikhet En Maati. Two other victims are named in the charges. Because of his history of convictions and his entry into the Sex Offender Registry, he has also added two extra counts.

Maati must pay $6,000 into a federal fund that helps those who have been victims of child exploitation.

The Nebraska U.S. Attorney’s Office reported that in September 2022, the Lincoln Police Department was informed about a concerning event between Maati and a juvenile. It was only later that the LPD learned Maati had also been the subject of a tip that had been sent to the FBI.

After searching Maati’s home and seizing his iPhone, authorities found distressing recordings depicting the exploitation of children. The recordings were exchanged and published on a cloud-based service, giving access to a buddy who is also a convicted sex offender.

On Maati’s cloud-storage account, further videos of every kid were found. After being charged in April 2023, he was tried before a bench in February of this year.

Under the federal system, parole is not an option.

Douglas County District Court found Maati guilty of attempted child sexual assault in 1997. Sarpy County District Court finally convicted him guilty of sexual assault in the second degree and sexual assault of a child after two years of proceedings.

The lawsuit was initiated as a component of the May 2006-established Project Safe Childhood. To combat the terrible problem of sexual exploitation and abuse of children, the United States Department of Justice has initiated a program on a national scale.

United States Attorney’s Offices and the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) of the Criminal Division are spearheading the effort. The goal is to help find and rescue victims while also coordinating government efforts to catch and prosecute perpetrators.
