Colorado man imprisoned in Nebraska child sex case
GERING - A Colorado resident has been imprisoned for sexually assaulting one of his art students in western Nebraska.
Scotts Bluff County District Court records say 45-year-old Steven Barraza, of Englewood, Colorado, was sentenced Thursday to 10 to 20 years in prison.
He’d pleaded no contest to attempted sexual assault of a child and to child abuse.
Prosecutors had lowered the charges in exchange. Barraza was credited for 266 days already served.
The court records say a woman told authorities she and Barraza had sex twice in 2014, when she was 15 years old.
