Derrick Gartner – Repeat Sex Offender – Busted for Child Porn

Gartner is on the Sex Offender Registry for 2004 convictions in Lancaster County for attempted second-degree sexual assault and false imprisonment of a minor, and for a 2003 conviction in Gage County for attempted first-degree sexual assault, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.


Lincoln police say while a man was in jail in April, his roommate came across child pornography on his computer.

It led police to re-arrest 28-year-old Derrick Gartner, who now gives a Beatrice address.

Officer Katie Flood said police arrested Gartner, a Level 3 convicted sex offender, on Wednesday on suspicion of possession of child pornography.

She said on April 4, his now-former roommate contacted police after finding disturbing images of children in sexual poses on Gartner’s computer.

The next day, police served a search warrant and seized the computer and other media devices. Flood said an investigator since has done a forensic examination and found child pornography.

On May 12, Flood said, police were called to Lincoln High School at 6:45 a.m. about Gartner, who was passed out in front of the school. Police took him to Detox, Flood said, where they found a pipe with methamphetamine residue on it.

Gartner is on the Sex Offender Registry for 2004 convictions in Lancaster County for attempted second-degree sexual assault and false imprisonment of a minor, and for a 2003 conviction in Gage County for attempted first-degree sexual assault, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.
