Jury begins deliberations against former teacher accused of sexually assaulting 13-year-old girl

Posted: Updated:
After hearing two half-days worth of testimony, a jury has begun deliberating in a sexual assault of a child case against a former Mitchell teacher.

38-year-old Richard Cobos of Gering is charged with felony third-degree sexual assault of a child.
Police say Cobos assaulted the girl on several occasions between 2009 and 2012 when she was staying at his house.

Cobos was a math teacher at Mitchell Jr. High School before the charges were filed.

If the jury convicts Cobos, he could be facing up to 5 years in prison.
