May 21, 2023 (Lincoln, Neb.) –  Donald Lichtenberg #213960, age 84, died yesterday at a Lincoln hospital. He was incarcerated at the Reception and Treatment Center (RTC).

Lichtenberg’s sentence began on October 20, 2021. He was serving an 18- to 24-year sentence for attempted first degree sexual assault of a child out of Douglas County.

While the cause of death has not yet been determined, Lichtenberg was being treated for a medical condition. As is the case whenever an inmate dies in the custody of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS), a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
