Kearney, Neb. — A student is denying accusations that he sexually assaulted a female acquaintance in a residence hall at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Buffalo County Court records say 19-year-old Prestin Melroy, of Holdrege, and 18-year-old Zachary Reikofski, of Fairbury, are charged with felony sexual assault.
Melroy’s attorney, Brian Davis, said Wednesday that Melroy would be pleading not guilty. Reikofski’s attorney didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press.
A preliminary hearing for Melroy and Reikofski is scheduled for Dec. 11. Court records detailing the allegations have been sealed.
