Aurora man charged with child enticement in York County District Court

YORK – David Derr, 44, of Aurora, has been charged with enticement of a child by electronic communication device, a Class 4 felony, in York County District Court. He is also charged with intimidation by phone/electronic communication device, a Class 3 misdemeanor.

According to the affidavit filed with the court, the York County Sheriff’s Department investigated this case.

It is alleged Derr messaged a child under the age of 16 via Snapchat “in an inappropriate manner.” The details of the ongoing messages cannot be published due to being graphic in nature.

During the investigation, it was noted Derr had been recently released from serving a 90-day jail sentence, as a York County inmate being housed at Hamilton County Corrections. It was also noted he is on the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry, as a lifetime registrant, pursuant to two separate convictions. The first conviction is out of Buffalo County for attempted sexual assault of a child, third degree, with a date of December, 2010. The second conviction is out of Hall County for third degree sexual assault with a date of April, 2014. He was also convicted twice in Hall County of sex offender registration act violations.

The YSO investigator included that he is a “Nebraska convicted felon, a multi-state/source offender who has been convicted of crimes of domestic violence, failure to appear, probation violations and fugitive from justice.”

He was scheduled for arraignment this week, in York County District Court.
