GI man convicted of recording his sexual assaults of unaware women sentenced to one year in jail

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KGFW) – A Grand Island man, who authorities say recorded himself sexually assaulting two unaware women, has received one year in jail.

Hall County District Court Judge Mark Young sentenced Jake McGovern Wednesday on three counts, including 90-days for Felony First-Degree Sexual Assault.

McGovern received one year each on convictions of Felony Intrude on Person Without Consent and Misdemeanor Third-Degree Sexual Assault. Court records indicate all three sentences are to be served concurrently. He also must register as a sex offender.

The videos were discovered on a cell phone, which authorities said was dropped as McGovern was chased away by a resident who caught the 40-year-old looking through an apartment window in Kearney.

McGovern was released later Wednesday afternoon pending appeals after posting 10% of a half-million bond.
