News Director


With a total of five felony charges against him, including attempted murder, Delmas Wilson, 44, of Alliance, is facing many years in prison if he is found guilty.

The charges against Wilson arise from an incident in April, according to the Affidavit for Custody. On April 18, at 6:53 p.m., officers with the Alliance Police Department were dispatched to the 1200 block of West 14th Street based on the report of a “female heard crying and screaming in pain.”

The victim in the case told officers Wilson “had attempted to smother her with a pillow during an altercation.” She was transported to the hospital to receive treatment for her injuries.

The Affidavit states that Wilson “attempted to smother (her) on more than one occasion,” and that he forced her to have intercourse on two separate occasions through the use of “physical violence and threats of violence.”

Wilson was taken into custody, and his bond was set at 10 percent of $100,000. A complaint filed against Wilson in Box Butte County Court charges him with two counts of first-degree sexual assault, a class 2 felony, attempted murder, a class 2 felony, attempted sexual assault, a class 2A felony, and distribution of a controlled substance—marijuana, a class 2A felony.

The maximum penalty for a class 2 felony in Nebraska is 50 years in prison, with a minimum of one year. A class 2A felony carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
