OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - 79-year-old Michael Godfrey was sentenced by a Douglas County District Court Wednesday morning after pleading no contest to a third-degree sexual assault charge.

The sentencing stems from sexual assault allegations dating back several years. Godfrey was a violin instructor and sexually assaulted one of his students from the time she was seven years old until she was 10.

Godfrey was arrested and charged back in 2019.
