Sergeant jailed in teen sex case
PAPILLION (AP) — An Air Force master sergeant accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl has been given six months in Sarpy County Jail.
Court records say 41-year-old Jason Gibson, of La Vista, was sentenced Wednesday. He also must serve five years of probation. The records say he'd pleaded no contest to attempted sexual assault of a child.
Prosecutors say Gibson and a co-defendant, former Omaha youth pastor Klint Bitter, had contacted a third man, 19-year-old DeArch Stubblefield, to set up a meeting with the girl.
The records say Bitter has pleaded not guilty to child sexual assault and is scheduled to go on trial April 16. Stubblefield, a former Bellevue West football player, has pleaded guilty to attempted sex trafficking and other crimes and is scheduled to be sentenced Monday.
