Felony assault case against ex-Nebraska coach Mickey Joseph dismissed after alleged victim declines to testify

Apr 8, 2023

Prosecutors dropped the charge of assault by strangulation or suffocation against former interim Nebraska football coach Mickey Joseph due to the alleged victim's refusal to testify.

Joseph's charge stemmed from a November domestic disturbance at a home in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The prosecutor told Lancaster County Judge Laurie Yardley that the alleged victim sent an email in February to say that she decided against testifying.

Erica Pruess, the prosecutor, confirmed that a law enforcement officer in Arizona tried to subpoena the alleged victim multiple times between March 22 and March 27. However, the officer was never successful.
