(Neb.)-Kimball Councilman Takes Deal In Sex Assault Case

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 04/19/2012 02:53 PM

     GERING, Neb. (AP) - A Kimball city councilman accused of
sexually assaulting a mentally disabled teenage boy has pleaded no
contest to a lesser charge.
     Scott Haun was charged in October with first-degree sexual
assault. He pleaded no contest to attempted first-degree sexual
assault on Thursday in Scotts Bluff County District Court. He faces
up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced June 11.
     Haun has been on the Kimball City Council for a total of 12
years.
     Under Nebraska law, council members convicted of crimes while in
office must resign.
     Haun resigned Thursday morning prior to his plea hearing. The council
will hold an emergency meeting April 25 on the vacant seat.
