Former UNL Visiting Professor Gets 60 Days in Prison for Sexual Assault

A former visiting professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was sentenced Monday on charges of sexually assaulting a student.

A Lancaster District Court judge found Debasis Chaudhuri to 60 days in jail and to pay a $500 fine.
