Nebraska Revised Statute 60-1416
Acting without license; penalty.
Any person acting as a motor vehicle dealer, trailer dealer, wrecker or salvage dealer, motorcycle dealer, auction dealer, dealer's agent, manufacturer, factory representative, distributor, or distributor representative without having first obtained the license provided in section 60-1406 is guilty of a Class IV felony and is subject to the civil penalty provisions of section 60-1411.02.
Mens rea is not required to convict a person for acting without a license under this section because the offense is a public welfare offense. State v. Merchant, 285 Neb. 456, 827 N.W.2d 473 (2013).
