GERING, Neb. (AP) - A 24-year-old Alliance woman has been given up to five years in prison for sexually assaulting a teenage girl.

Online court records say Molleigh Valdez was sentenced Thursday in Scotts Bluff County District Court. She’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of a lowered charge of sexual assault of a child. Valdez also must register as a sex offender.

The Terrytown girl’s mother had gone to police in November with suspicions about the woman’s relationship with the 14-year-old. The girl later told authorities that she and Valdez had engaged in sexual activity. Under Nebraska law, people 19 and over cannot have sexual contact with people under 16.
