YORK – Jessica Menke, 30, who is serving a prison sentence at the Nebraska Correctional Center for Women (NCCW) in York, was accused of assaulting seven different prison workers on four separate occasions. Four cases were filed against her, with multiple counts in each case. This past week in York County District Court, all the charges against her were dismissed with the exception of one count of second-degree assault, a Class 2A felony, and she pleaded no contest.

In the first case she was accused of assaulting a sergeant and a corporal. In this case, she pleaded no contest to a single charge.

In the second case, she was accused of assaulting a sergeant and attempting to assault a caseworker. This case was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

In the third case, she was accused of assaulting a corporal. This case was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

In the fourth case, she was accused of assaulting a corporal and a caseworker. This case was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

She had been charged with six Class 2A felonies, with each carrying a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, and one Class 3A felony, which carried a possible three-year prison sentence. After the dismissals, she has now been convicted of one Class 2A felony.

She is currently serving a 3 ½-year prison sentence out of Hall County for attempted burglary, terroristic threats and violation of a protection order.

Sentencing for this most recent conviction has been set for July 29 in York County District Court.
