KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A former mental health practitioner at the state youth treatment center in Kearney has pleaded no contest to second-degree sexual abuse.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/2tpZvnl ) 27-year-old Samantha Halstead of Pleasanton will be sentenced in August.

Halstead was charged last summer with sexual assault of an 18-year-old male being treated at the Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services says Halstead quit before her arrest.
