LINCOLN — A judge has sentenced a U.S. Army Reserve sergeant to six months in jail for groping a female co-worker.
Christopher M. Hoyt, 40, was sentenced Thursday for his conviction on third-degree sexual assault, a misdemeanor.
His 21-year-old accuser told jurors that Hoyt fondled and groped her over the course of more than a year at the U.S. Army Reserve Center in Lincoln, despite her complaints.
Hoyt admitted that he grabbed the woman’s buttocks, but said she had grabbed his as well. He will now have to register as a sex offender.
