Two Defendants Draw Prison Terms for Burglary, Other Offenses

BEATRICE – Two Gage County men will serve prison terms for their involvement in a burglary and other violations.

29-year-old Joshua May was sentenced by Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner to a total of 6 to 8 years in prison, on convictions in two cases.

:16                  “lot going on”

May was convicted of burglary, drug possession, driving under the influence of drugs and attempted possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.  All of his sentences will be served at the same time.  The judge denied a request for probation, after May had been given an earlier opportunity at drug treatment.

May was also fined $500 and had his license revoked for six months after his release from prison.   He received credit off his sentences for 449 days spent in custody and could become eligible for parole in about two-and-a-half years.

Gage County District Judge Schreiner also sentenced 28-year-old Charles Rothman to 6-to-8 years in prison, on a burglary conviction.
