Western Neb. Woman Accused of Extorting Money from Daughter's Assaulter Gets Prison

Posted: Updated:
A western Nebraska woman accused of trying to extort money from a man who groped her 7-year-old daughter has been sentenced to one to three years in prison.

The 30-year-old woman originally pleaded not guilty to trying to extort money from 56-year-old Jason Frei, of Potter, who told investigators the girl's mother was trying to get $20,000 from him in exchange for helping him evade prosecution. In a deal with Cheyenne County prosecutors, the woman pleaded no contest to a reduced theft-by-extortion charge.

Frei has pleaded no contest to negligent child abuse and attempted witness tampering. Authorities say he groped the girl while giving her mother a massage at his home in August.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday.
