LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 21-year-old Lincoln man who police say swung a crowbar at his sister has been sent to jail for a year.

Court records say Ahmed Tuma was sentenced on Wednesday. He’d pleaded no contest to four misdemeanor counts after prosecutors lowered the charges, including one alleging a hate crime.

On Nov. 7 Tuma and a friend confronted Tuma’s sister about being engaged to another woman. Police say Tuma tried to hit his sister as she got out of her girlfriend’s car. She got back in and locked its doors before he smashed the car windows. Police say he and his friend later rammed the car with a pickup.

A police affidavit says Tuma said his sister disgraced their family, and he made disparaging remarks about her sexual orientation.
