North Platte Man Sentenced To Prison

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — A western Nebraska man accused of molesting a girl starting when she was 8 or 9 has been sentenced to prison.

North Platte television station KNOP reports that 42-year-old Edward Maline on Monday was given five to 10 years in prison. Maline pleaded no contest to attempted sexual assault of a minor after prosecutors lowered the charge.


Authorities say Maline was arrested after a 19-year-old woman reported that inappropriate touching and other acts of a sexual nature began when she was 8 or 9. She says the acts continued over the next several years.
