A former athletic director for Midland University who was accused of soliciting sex from students and threatening one has been given a year of probation.

Jason Dannelly, of Omaha, was sentenced on Monday. He'd pleaded no contest in February to two misdemeanor counts of attempted solicitation of prostitution. He'd been charged with felony pandering and terroristic threats and two misdemeanor solicitation counts.

The 34-year-old Dannelly was Midland University's athletic director from August 2011 until his dismissal in December 2012.

 Dannelly faces six months in jail if he violates the terms of his probation.
