Probation violation brings time behind bars in the Nebraska Department of Corrections. The Cassgram reports 28-year-old Adam Beil had recently been living in Iowa and “basically quit participating” in his two-year probation, said Chief Deputy Cass County Attorney Colin Palm.
Beil was placed on probation in January of 2012 for a Class IV Felony for the theft of jewelry from a residence on Beach Road on June 6th of 2011. He also had a Class I Misdemeanor conviction for the theft of tools and a Class II Misdemeanor for the theft of ID cards and other items from a wallet that same week. Police recovered some of the items when they searched the tree house in which he had been living.
There had been a warrant out for Beil’s arrest after he failed to show for a sentencing hearing several weeks ago. Palm said Beil turned himself in to authorities a couple weeks ago.
Cass County District Court Judge Randall Rehmeier sentenced Beil to one year on Monday. Beil was given credit for 93 days served after he was first arrested in 2011 and for the 14 days he was in jail since turning himself in. Under Nebraska sentencing guidelines he will have about three months to serve before being released.
