A former federal police officer in Grand Island is scheduled to be sentenced May 28 for misdemeanor sexual assault.
The Grand Island Independent (http://bit.ly/15mx5uG) says 41-year-old Justin Maltagliati had pleaded no contest to misdemeanor sexual assault after prosecutors lowered the charge.
Maltagliati was employed at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center when the incident occurred on July 20 last year.
A woman told police that she'd filed documents for a protection order against Maltagliati three days earlier. She says she awoke at 3 a.m. that day to find him touching her. She says he sexually assaulted her despite her telling him to stop and trying to push him away.
