Iraq vet sentenced for sexual assault

Jacob Ford

An Iraqi war veteran was sentenced today for sexually assaulting a woman in 2008.

Jacob Ford was sentenced 4 to 6 years in prison.  He's convicted of assaulting a Lincoln woman at a party when he was home on leave.  However, in February 2010, the Nebraska Supreme Court granted Ford another trial saying certain evidence should not have been allowed at trial.  Still, the jury found Ford guilty in the second trial.
