LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Texas man has been imprisoned in Nebraska for a brutal beating.

Online court records say Stelson Curry, of Cedar Hill, Texas, was sentenced Tuesday in Lancaster County District Court to 30 to 45 years. He’d pleaded no contest and was convicted after prosecutors lowered charges stemming from separate crimes.

Authorities say Curry and another man attacked 22-year-old Patrick Pantoja and 27-year-old Emmanuel Nartey, who were walking from an apartment to a college campus on Oct. 3, 2014. Pantoja was taken to a hospital with severe head trauma. James Price has been charged with aiding and abetting the assault.

In the other case, Curry was convicted of felony false imprisonment. The original charge was felony sexual assault.
