Guilty Pleas In Cass County

The Cassgram reports three guilty pleas and all three individuals will be sentenced January 25th in Cass County,Nebraska.

29-year-old Travis W. Landanger of Gresham, Nebraska entered no contest pleas to three counts: possession of forged instruments (counterfeit money), a Class IV Felony; possession of methamphetamine, also a Class IV Felony; and driving under the influence-second offense-super (because of a refusal to submit to a chemical test), a Class 1 Misdemeanor. Two other counts were dropped as part of a plea agreement. There is no recommendation on sentencing.

Chief Deputy Cass County Attorney Colin Palm said the Nebraska State Patrol observed several driving violations and pulled over the vehicle driven by Landanger on September 25th. He refused to take an alcohol/drug test but an NSP expert would have testified at trial that Landanger was an impaired driver, said Palm. The subsequent investigation uncovered meth in the car and $2600 in cash, about half of which was determined to be counterfeit $100 bills.

Landanger has remained incarcerated since the offense. His bond is $75,000.

26-year-old John C. Anderson of Lincoln pleaded guilty to driving under the influence, 4th offense, a Class IIIA Felony. The plea agreement contains a joint recommendation for a one year sentence in the Nebraska Department of Corrections.

The state patrol arrested Anderson on June 20th on Interstate 80.

Anderson remains free on bond.

44-year-old Jerome A. Burton of Plattsmouth pleaded guilty to a Class IV Felony of driving on a suspended license. He was arrested by Plattsmouth Police this past summer. Police were aware Burton had a suspended license and observed him operating a motor vehicle, said the prosecution. His last suspension for driving while intoxicated carried a license revocation through 2020. His arrest in July did not involve alcohol.

Burton remains free on bond.
