On Monday afternoon in Stanton County District Court, District Judge Mark Johnson found a 60 year old former Norfolk man guilty of First Degree Sexual Assault.
Paul Lovell entered a no contest plea to the charge. He faces up to fifty years in prison when he is sentenced in February.
Lovell was arrested this past April by the Stanton County Sheriff’s office after a lengthy investigation into the assault of a juvenile female at a Stanton residence several years earlier. Lovell has been in jail since his arrest and remains in custody.
