STANTON, NE — A Stanton man will spend over a decade in prison following his sentencing in Stanton County District Court on Monday.
32-year-old Arthur Ebert was sentenced to 10 to 12 years in prison on a conviction for First Degree Sexual Assault and two to three years for False Imprisonment by Judge James Kube. The terms will be served consecutively.
The sentences stem from an assault in Stanton last November. A news release from the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office says the female victim was hospitalized because of injuries received in the assault. Ebert has been in custody since being arrested at the scene and will have to register as a sex offender upon his release.
