    Man accused of sexual assault held on $1 million bond

    LEXINGON-A Lexington man who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in May has been charged in Dawson County Court.


    Melvin Hilario Gregorio-Mendez, 26, appeared before Judge Jeffrey Wightman in Dawson County Court on Thursday.


    He is charged with first degree sexual assault, a Class II felony. If convicted he faces up to 50 years in prison, with a minimum of one year.


    A warrant for Gregorio-Mendezís arrest was issued on Jan. 24 following an investigation by the Lexington Police Department which began in May. Gregorio-Mendez was arrested on Saturday, Feb. 18, and booked into the Dawson County Jail.


    At the time of his arrest bond was set at $1 million, with 10 percent, or $100,000, required for release.


    The alleged sexual assault occurred the evening of May 26 or in the early morning hours of May 27. Gregorio-Mendez allegedly submitted an adult female, under the age of 21, who was under the influence of alcohol, to sexual penetration without her consent.

    Wightman denied Gregorio-Mendezís request for a reduction in bond, saying he appeared to be a flight risk because at the time of his arrest he was found with a consular ID card for Guatemala. Gregorio-Mendez was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim.


    A preliminary hearing has been set for 11 a.m. on March 8.

    After reading the 1 million dollar bond amount, I automatically assumed this was not a liberal judge. Out of curiosity I did a search and sure enough he was appointed by Republican Governor Dave Heineman in March of 2013.

    Not of any real consequence to this discussion, just thought it was interesting. Not surprising, just interesting. A lot of Republican judges get it, wish I could say the same for Democrat judges.

    My best guess is Tyson. Second guess would be a roofing company.
