Scottsbluff man arrested for incest

A 19-year-old man is facing a felony incest charge after police were dispatched to a Scottsbluff home in reference to a domestic disturbance that had occurred.

Yonathan J. Lara-Robles of Scottsbluff was arrested Monday night on a charge of incest.

Court documents say an officer was dispatched to a home after a woman said her mother strangled her with a wire hanger. Further investigation revealed that her mother was furious after finding out that the daughter was pregnant with her biological half-brother's baby.

It says several months ago, the siblings decided to experiment sexually together and she got pregnant. She says that he is the only individual she has had sex with.

Yonathan went to the police station to be interviewed, and said that he and his half-sister had sex five total times between January and May, 2014.

Incest is a Class III Felony in Nebraska, and carries a prison sentence ranging from 1 to 20 years.
