Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Nebraska changed their law in 2009 to make the minimum registration 15 years or 25 years or lifetime. So, if he was sentenced to 10 years, he would now fall under the 25 year registration and would have to register for that full period (15 year registration allows to apply to court for a reduction after 10 years now). See: NE Statute 29-4005. The courts have held that the legislature made this law apply retroactively, so the fact they changed the law after his conviction and before he completed his registration he would have to continue to register.
If he completed his registration period before the law changed in 2009, then he no longer has to register.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
