February 3, 2023 (Lincoln, Neb.) – Authorities have been notified about an inmate missing from the Community Corrections Center – Lincoln (CCC-L). George Piper #50216 did not return to the facility last night from his job in the community.

Piper started his sentence on October 27, 1997. He was sentenced to 35 to 52 years on charges out of Red Willow and Frontier Counties that include first degree sexual assault, second degree assault, burglary and escape. Piper has a tentative release date of November 19, 2023. He is scheduled for a parole hearing in August 2023.
