Ex-teacher, Husker player takes deal in sex assault case

July 31, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A former Lincoln schoolteacher and Husker football player has made a plea deal in a sex assault case.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 41-year-old Sean Applegate pleaded no contest Monday to attempted sexual assault and child abuse. His sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 12.

He was arrested in April last year after a woman reported that she had been molested by him at his Lincoln home between 2013 and 2014, starting when she was 15.

Applegate was a wingback for the Huskers, 1996-1999. He had worked as an industrial arts teacher at Pound Middle School.
