The Nebraska Supreme Court has affirmed the mental health commitment of a convicted sex offender.

The offender, referenced only as "S.C." in the appeal, was
convicted in 2008 of sexual assault of a child and sentenced to
five years. His sentencing stipulated he must complete a sex
offender treatment program while in prison or be subject to
commitment at the end of his sentence.

The offender argued in his appeal that he had been willing to
undergo treatment, but was told it was available only at the
Lincoln prison. He was denied a request to transfer there, because
he had a relative who worked at the Lincoln prison.
