A North Platte man arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a
child has pleaded not guilty to those charges in Lincoln County District Court.
41-year-old Edward Maline was arrested in December after a 19-year-old woman reported to authorities that Maline
began touching her inappropriately and performing acts that were sexual
in nature when she was about 8 or 9 years old.
The victim says the alleged sexual
actions continued over the next decade.
