Omaha man sentenced to 165 years behind bars for string of sexual assaults

An Omaha man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for a string of sexual assaults and burglaries.

On Monday, Stephen Prior was sentenced to 165-220 years in prison on charges of of sexual assault, burglary, robbery, possession of a firearm to commit a felony and a number of other charges.

Prior was found guilty on all counts in September of this year.

Prior was originally arrested for a 2017 home invasion and assault that was reported near 156th and Giles. That sexual assault prompted a manhunt in the area. Prior was arrested two hours after Sarpy County Sheriff Jeff Davis named him as their suspect in the case.

Investigators believed he might be connected to other sexual assaults that all have a common thread. Each of the victims worked in the medical field.
