PAPILLION, Neb. (KMTV) -- — The man dubbed the “Library Exposer” will only be visiting one for a while; the prison library.

Nathaniel Dixon, 32, is sentenced to 20-30 years in prison for burglary and being a habitual criminal. With “Good Time,” he'll serve 15 years before being eligible for parole.

In July 2017, Dixon broke into a Papillion home stealing jewelry and going through the female victim's underwear drawer. Prosecutors believe he intended to sexually assault her because he had condoms, a flash light, and antiseptic wipes in his backpack.

Since 2015 he's been arrested eight times for lewd acts and has been banned from libraries across the metro for exposing and touching himself on other occasions.

“The judge got the message in regard to him being a habitual criminal, knew what his record was, and gave him an appropriate sentence to protect the public," said Phil Kleine, Deputy Sarpy County Attorney.

Dixon didn't admit to guilt and told the judge he wants a new trial.

"I didn't think there was enough evidence for me beyond a reasonable doubt to be found guilty. I don't think the prosecutor proved it at all," Dixon explained.

He has a mandatory release date in 20 years. He's getting credit for 464 days served, and he plans to appeal the conviction.
