BEATRICE, Nebraska — A November sentencing hearing has been scheduled for a Beatrice man convicted of raping a 9-year-old boy.
On Monday 39-year-old Scott Taylor pleaded no contest to sexual assault of a child. Prosecutors had lowered the charge in exchange for Taylor's plea. He faces up to five years in prison when he's sentenced on Nov. 19.
Taylor was arrested at his home following an investigation conducted after the boy told his schoolteacher of the Nov. 18, 2013, assault. Court records say the assault occurred at the boy's home while his parents were out.
