A Falls City man who impregnated and later married his 14-year-old girlfriend pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual assault at a hearing Tuesday.

Richardson County District Judge Daniel Bryan Jr. accepted Matthew Koso’s plea and scheduled him for sentencing Feb. 7. Koso, 22, could receive a prison sentence of up to 50 years or probation.


Bruning said Koso and the girl began having sex when he was 20 and she was 12. Nebraska law prohibits sex between adults 19 and older and juveniles under 16.

After Crystal became pregnant, the couple married in Hiawatha, Kan., in May. Kansas does not have a minimum age for marriage, although the state requires couples under 18 to get permission from their parents or guardians.

Nebraska requires people to be 17 or older to marry.
