Authorities say Sebesta was wanted for violating parole. He was on parole after being released in May 2022 from a manslaughter conviction out of Douglas County. In that incident, Sebesta allegedly killed Philip Burden after the two fought over a drug debt. He was sentenced to 12-20 years.

Sebesta was booked into Sarpy County Jail Friday morning on several charges, including fugitive from justice, false imprisonment, terroristic threats, possession of marijuana - more than one pound, criminal mischief, trespassing, and possession/use of drug paraphernalia.
