Lincoln Man Sentenced to Jail for Groping Joggers


Lincoln - A 28-year-old Lincoln man will spend time behind bars for groping and slapping the backsides of women jogging on city trails.

Christopher Jackson received his jail sentence on Monday. Online court records showed Jackson pleaded no contest to three counts of sexual assault and one count of misdemeanor assault.

Lincoln police said several women had reported the incidents separately in September. They said their attacker would ride up on a bicycle from behind them while they were jogging and would reach out to grab or slap their buttocks.
