Felony Assault Case Against Mickey Joseph Dismissed

The felony assault case against former Nebraska interim head football coach Mickey Joseph was dismissed. 

The move came after the alleged victim refused to testify.  Joseph had faced a charge of assault by strangulation or suffocation in connection with a November domestic disturbance at a Lincoln home. 

A preliminary hearing was scheduled, but a prosecutor told the judge the alleged victim, who now lives in Arizona, said in an email she wouldn’t testify.
