HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska man already sentenced to prison for having sex with his adult daughter has been given two more years behind bars.

Travis Fieldgrove, 40, was sentenced Tuesday in Adams County District Court in Hastings. He'd pleaded no contest to attempted incest after prosecutors had reduced the charge from incest in return for Fieldgrove's plea.

He made a similar deal in neighboring Hall County, where he lived, and was sentenced in May to two years in prison, court records say. The Adams County time will be served after the Hall County sentence is completed, the Adams County judge said.

Fieldgrove and his daughter, now 21, married in Adams County in October 2018, a month after police began to investigate their relationship. She reported to police that she told her mother about three years ago that she wanted to meet her father.

Her mother arranged a meeting with Fieldgrove, and the young woman and Fieldgrove had a father-daughter relationship until September 2018, when it turned sexual, they told authorities in both counties.

DNA tests have confirmed their biological relationship, authorities have said.

Nebraska man sentenced to prison for sex abuse of babysitter

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A man who sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl who was babysitting his children at a home on the Omaha Reservation in Macy has been sentenced to four years in federal prison.

Dale Grant, 31, was sentenced Monday in Omaha's federal courthouse for sexual abuse of a minor, U.S. Attorney Joe Kelly said in a news release Tuesday.

Investigators said the assault happened in July 2018 while the girl was babysitting Grant's children. Grant returned to the house intoxicated and sexually assaulted the girl after she fell asleep, investigators said. Grant initially denied any sexual contact with the minor, but admitted to sexual contact after being confronted with DNA evidence, officials said.

After his release from prison, Grant will serve a five-year term of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender. There is no parole in the federal system.
