Man Convicted in Gage County Rural Thefts, Sentenced to Prison

BEATRICE – A man sentenced last week in a Lancaster County drug case, Thursday was sentenced to 4-6 years in prison in three Gage County criminal cases, including thefts that victimized rural residents.

33-year-old Aaron Satterfield was convicted in Gage County of theft by receiving stolen property, two counts of possession of methamphetamine, flight to avoid arrest, and attempted possession of a deadly weapon.   His 4-to-6 years in prison in the Gage County cases, will run concurrently with a 4-7-year sentence given in Lancaster County, for distribution of methamphetamine.

Satterfield and Casey Oldfield were convicted in a string of thefts from farm owners.  District Judge Julie Smith today ordered Satterfield to pay $4,250 restitution to six victims of the rural thefts, in Gage County.

The Gage County Attorney’s Office and Gage County Public Defender reached a plea agreement to resolve all three of the criminal cases in Gage County.

In August, Casey Oldfield was sentenced to 3-8 years in prison for convictions in three Gage County criminal cases.

In the series of thefts, Chief Deputy Gage County Attorney Amanda Spracklen-Hogan said several county residents with farm equipment and outbuildings were disturbed that someone would come onto their properties, and steal items.
