WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Jason Nebergall, a former Florida deputy, was sentenced to three years in jail on Thursday for attempting to rape a woman he met during a call.
Jason Nebergall, 42-year-old former deputy, was sentenced Thursday in Palm Beach County circuit court after he was pleading guilty to battery and attempted sexual battery as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. He was scheduled to stand trial again later this month.
Jason Nebergall former deputy was previously convicted by a jury and sentenced to eight years in prison in 2018, but the verdict was later overturned by an appeals court due to faulty testimony.
According to prosecutors, Jason Nebergall the former deputy was a Palm Beach County officer when he arrived at the victim’s Greenacres house in 2016 to investigate a disagreement between the woman and her landlord. Jason Nebergall grabbed her hair, kissed her, and tried to rape her during one visit, the lady told detectives, but he stopped raping her because he didn’t have a condom.
During his 2018 trial, Jason Nebergall the former deputy testified that the woman made approaches toward him directly, but he pushed her away instantly.
Prosecutors said that the DNA evidence backed up the woman’s claims.
