SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - A 19-year-old Nebraska man who faced a felony incest charge has taken a plea deal.

The man pleaded no contest to a lesser felony charge of attempted incest on Tuesday. He had been charged with felony incest.

Court documents indicate he was arrested in June after a disturbance at a Scottsbluff home. A 16-year-old girl tells police her mother attempted to strangle her with a coat hanger after learning she was pregnant with her half brother’s child. She tells officers the relationship was consensual.

The girl was placed into state custody. She had been charged in juvenile court with incest but those charges were dismissed Tuesday.

The Associated Press is not naming the man in order to protect the privacy of the girl.
