Jay Gilmore has been sentenced 4-5 years in prison for sexually assaulting two young girls. 

It happened back in May.  Lincoln police say Gilmore called 911 and admitted to the crime.  Gilmore was waiting to serve his sentence on a child pornography conviction in federal court.  He was sentenced to six years in prison for possession of child pornography.

In the sexual assault cases, Gilmore is convicted of inappropriately touching two sisters, ages 8 and 9 at the time.  He was charged with two counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child.  Gilmore later pleaded guilty to one count and no contest to the other.
