Former Kearney teacher Eldon Haas is headed to prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy in the 1990s.

Eldon Haas, 65, was sentenced to 20 months to 60 months in prison for felony sexual assault of a child, which involves sexual contact, between July 5, 1994, and July 4, 1996. His victim was one of several witnesses who testified against Haas during a three-day October jury trial.

Judge Mark Kozisek gave Haas 77 days credit for time already served in jail. Haas also must register with the Nebraska State Patrol as a convicted sex offender.


With good time Haas could be eligible for parole in 10 months and possibly discharged in 30 months.
