Lincoln man accused of sexual assault of girl

A Lincoln man has been arrested, accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl. Ademola Cole faces up to 50 years in prison under the charge: sexual assault of a minor.

Court records say the girl told a relative that, against her wishes, Cole began having sexual contact with her in fall 2009, when she was 12.

She says the assaults stopped in January. A jail spokeswoman said the 24-year-old Cole remained in custody on Friday, pending bail of $250,000. Case records don't yet list the name of Cole's attorney.
