Man seen on video sexually assaulting drunken woman is imprisoned

LINCOLN — A man caught on security video sexually assaulting a drunken woman at a Lincoln bar has been sent to prison.

Judge Lori Maret gave 47-year-old Moses Childs Jr. 19 years and 10 months to 20 years in prison at his sentencing Thursday. She told him that the video was horrifying.

Authorities say employees at JJ Hooligan’s found the Haymarket bar’s office in disarray when they arrived on Aug. 30, 2017. They contacted police after seeing what they thought was sexual assault on the video.

Childs initially told police that the encounter was consensual and that he had been drinking. His attorney, Stephen Kraft, told the judge that when Childs saw the video, he realized that he had crossed a line. He pleaded no contest to attempted first-degree sexual assault.
