A southeast Nebraska man has been given 20 to 36 months in prison for domestic assault in Beatrice.
Twenty-three-year-old Trevor Hurley, of Wymore, was sentenced on Wednesday. He had pleaded no contest to the assault charge and to attempted negligent child abuse.
Hurley was given the prison time for the domestic assault. A three-month sentence for the attempted child abuse will be served at the same time.
Court records say a woman told police on Oct. 2 that Hurley had shoved her to the ground and slammed her head into the ground.
She reported that she and Hurley had been arguing about their 19-month-old child. She said Hurley threatened to take the child and walk to Wymore.
