A former Florida deputy has been sentenced to three years in prison for trying to rape a woman.
Jason Nebergall, 42, was sentenced Thursday in Palm beach County circuit court after pleading guilty to battery and attempted sexual battery as part of a plea deal.
He was previously found guilty by a jury and sentenced to eight years in prison, but appeals court later threw out the conviction because of improper testimony.
Nebergall in 2016 had responded to the victim’s home over a fight between the woman and her landlord.
DNA evidence supported the victim’s allegations that Nebergall later tried to rape her.
