FREMONT, Neb. (AP) -- A former athletic director for Midland University who was accused of soliciting sex from students and threatening one has made a deal for lower charges.

Officials said 34-year-old Jason Dannelly, of Omaha, pleaded no contest on Monday to two misdemeanor counts of attempted solicitation of prostitution. He'd been charged with felony pandering and terroristic threats and two solicitation counts.

Prosecutors allege he told an 18-year-old student in November 2012 that he would protect her from legal trouble if she had sex with him but also harm her if she told anyone. Dannelly also was accused of giving a 20-year-old student $300 in October 2012 to have sexual contact with him.

Dannelly was Midland University's athletic director from August 2011 until his dismissal in December 2012.
