Authorities say a former Broken Bow man has been imprisoned for lying about a sex assault conviction to housing officials.

Robert Tipton Jr. was sentenced Aug. 19 in U.S. District Court in Lincoln to two years in prison.

He and his girlfriend applied for public housing in Broken Bow in February 2014 and checked "no" to a question of whether anyone in the household had ever been convicted of a crime, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He signed the application and attested to its accuracy.

Prosecutors said Tipton was convicted of felony sexual assault of a child in 2001 in Colorado. Federal regulations bar sex offenders from living in public housing.
