LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 19-year-old man has been given jail time for beating a person who was trying to buy drugs from him.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1lnLPyL ) a judge sentenced Mahir Jejna on Wednesday in Lancaster County District Court to a year each on charges of third-degree assault and aiding and abetting theft by unlawful taking. He will serve the sentences concurrently.

Authorities say Jejna attacked a man at a park last July who was buying marijuana from him. Jejna is accused of grabbing the victim’s neck and punching him. Another man with Jejna allegedly stole the victim’s phone.

Jejna later pleaded no contest to the charges.
