Nebraska High Court Upholds Sex Offender Ruling

The Nebraska Supreme Court has upheld a ruling that requires a Sargent man to register as a sex offender even though he wasn't convicted of a sex crime.

In a ruling released Friday the high court upheld a lower court's ruling against the appeal by 33-year-old Chad Norman.

The Supreme Court had asked the Buffalo County District Court in January 2012 to review evidence that proved Norman's crime involved sexual contact. The high court says in its ruling that the trial court found with clear and convincing evidence that Norman's crime involved sexual contact with his ex-girlfriend's 11-year-old son.

Norman was charged in 2009 with felony child sexual assault. After the prosecutor reduced the charge, Norman pleaded no contest to third-degree assault for threatening the boy.
