The mayor of Randolph, Nebraska is scheduled to be in court this week to face multiple felonies related to a child sexual assault investigation.

Court documents indicate that 61-year old Dwayne Schutt was arrested on Thursday.

A warrant for his arrest was issued last week following an investigation that yielded four counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of felony child abuse.

According to court documents, the investigation began after a domestic disturbance call at Schutt’s residence last December.

Over the course of the investigation, Cedar County Sheriff’s officials say they learned of the sexual assault of a juvenile over the course of four years beginning when the juvenile was 13 years old.

Schutt posted 10% of his $125,000 bond and was released from jail on Friday.

He’s set to be arraigned on the charges in Cedar County Court on Wednesday.

Schutt has been mayor of Randolph since 2011. Randolph is located in northeastern Nebraska.
