Former Hemingford Chief sentenced to 20-24 years in prison

Posted: Updated:

A former western Nebraska police chief has been sentenced to 20 to 24 years for a sexual relationship with a teenage girl.
 
The Nebraska Attorney General's Office says former Hemingford police chief Mark Lindburg was sentenced Wednesday in Box Butte County District Court.
 
The 53-year-old Lindburg initially was charged with first-degree sexual assault and child abuse. In an agreement with prosecutors, Lindburg pleaded no contest last month to one count of attempted first-degree sexual assault of a child, and the child abuse count was dropped.
 
Lindburg had faced up to 50 years in prison.
 
An investigation showed Lindburg engaged in sexual interactions with a 15-year-old girl while on duty as Hemingford's police chief. Investigators said Lindburg had known the girl ``as long as she could remember.''
