Texas Man Imprisoned in Nebraska for Brutal Beating

A 22-year-old Cedar Hill man has been imprisoned in Nebraska for a brutal beating.

Online court records said Stelson Curry was sentenced Tuesday in Lancaster County District Court to 30 to 45 years. He pleaded no contest and was convicted after prosecutors lowered charges stemming from separate crimes.

Authorities said Curry and another man attacked 22-year-old Patrick Pantoja and 27-year-old Emmanuel Nartey, who were walking from an apartment to a college campus Oct. 3, 2014. Pantoja was taken to a hospital with severe head trauma.

James Price was charged with aiding and abetting the assault.

In the other case, Curry was convicted of felony false imprisonment. The original charge was felony sexual assault.
