Teens scheduled to appear in court
The three teens who were involved in a break-in at Sabetha High School in April 2017 are scheduled to appear in court at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1.
Marcus Jackman, 19, and Grant Meyer, 20, both of Sabetha, will appear in court next week to learn of the amount of restitution and imposition of community work service. Jackman and Meyer entered pleas of no contest in September. They were both convicted of theft and criminal damage to property. They received sentences of 12 months in jail for theft and six months in jail for criminal damage to property, of which they must serve 10 days each. The remainder of their sentences were suspended, and both placed on supervised probation for 24 months.
According to Nemaha County Attorney Brad Lippert, a condition of their probation is they both must refrain from entering property owned by USD No. 113 for the duration of the probation.
Seth Harrell, 18, of Sabetha also is scheduled to appear in court next week to be sentenced for his role in the SHS break-in. Lippert said Harrell also entered pleas of no contest to theft and criminal damage to property.
“As he is being prosecuted as a juvenile, Harrell was adjudicated to be a juvenile offender for the commission of both offenses,” Lippert said.
In all three cases, charges of burglary and consumption of alcohol by a minor were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
