Man imprisoned for sexual assault on 8-year-old girl

March 6, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln man has been imprisoned for a sexual assault on an 8-year-old girl.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 32-year-old Paulo Cuevas was sentenced Tuesday to eight to 12 years. He’d pleaded no contest to sexual assault.

Prosecutors say the girl told her school principal about a year ago that she’d been sexually abused around four years earlier at a party at a family friend’s Lincoln home. She later said she didn’t report the assault immediately because she was afraid.
