A 21-year-old Bayard man faces charges of sexual assault and appeared Friday for arraignment.
Jacob M. Dalbey, 21, of Bayard, has been charged with three counts of forcible sexual assault in the first degree, a Class II felony.
Court documents indicate that Dalbey was cited on the charge on Feb. 9, accused of subjecting a then-teen girl to vaginal and oral penetration between June and August 2018. According to a protection order filed in Scotts Bluff County Court filed in December 2020, the now-16-year-old girl alleges that Dalbey sexually assaulted her on more than one occasions in June and July 2018. The girl said she was 13 at the time and had been staying at a relative’s home during the summer when she reports the assaults occurred.
Dalbey is next scheduled to appear in Scotts Bluff County Court for a preliminary hearing on March 8.
