Amended charge in sexual assault. 18-year-old Nathan Breault had originally faced a Class II Felony sexual assault count for an incident last September in Plattsmouth. Breault pled guilty to a Class I Misdemeanor charge on Monday in Cass County District Court. The prosecution will join the defense in recommending probation at sentencing.
Cass County Attorney Nathan Cox said there will be some terms recommended along with the two year probation. Among the terms: Breault will get his GED instead of returning to high school. He will reside with his mother during the entire probation period. He will undergo a sex offender risk evaluation before sentencing.
Breault had been in Cass County Jail since his arrest. His bond was $300,000. That bond was amended to a $10,000 signature bond on Monday so Breault could be released to begin the evaluation. He is not to have any contact with the 16-year-old female victim
