HARTINGTON — A former Nebraska mayor accused of child sexual assault has taken a plea deal and been given a year of probation.

Cedar County District Court records say 63-year-old Dwayne Schutt pleaded no contest to intentional child abuse, no injury, Friday and was sentenced. Prosecutors dropped four counts of child sexual assault in return. He'd pleaded not guilty to them.
