Grand Island teen gets more prison time

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- A Grand Island teenager got more prison time in connection with a sex crime investigation involving high school students.

On Monday, a Hall County District Court judge sentenced Max Rookstool to 14 to 16 years in state prison for a conviction on first degree sexual assault.

Rookstool had already been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison last week after he was convicted on a federal charge of receiving and distributing child pornography.

Rookstool was a student at Northwest High School when he was arrested last year. Police say they discovered almost 200 images of minors.

Former Northwest teacher Brian Mohr was sentenced to six years in prison last week on related charges.
