Jeremiah J. McClellan, 41, of Niobrara will spend the next few years in confinement. He was sentenced by the Honorable James Kube in Knox County District Court on Tuesday.

McClellan appeared for sentencing in two cases. In the first, he was sentenced to serve three to five years in an institution under the jurisdiction of the Nebraska Department of Corrections for a Class 2A felony conviction of theft by unlawful taking for a March 2017 crime. He was given credit for seven days previously served.

He was ordered to pay costs of prosecution in the amount of $189.86 and, beginning two and one-half months after his release, pay restitution of $100 per month for a total of $500, to Eric VonSeggern, and therafter, $74.60 per month for 55 months, for a total of $4,103, to Northern Nebraska United Insurance Company.

McClellan was convicted for the theft of two bulls and five cows from property west of Creighton and the subsequent sale of the livestock at a Yankton, S.D. packing company. 

In the second case, he was sentenced to serve one-year incarcerated with the Department of Corrections on each of two Class 4 felony convictions, intent to evade income tax and filing a false tax return. The two sentences are to be served concurrent to each other and to one in a Holt County District Court case, but consecutive to the sentence in the first case.

He was ordered to pay costs of prosecution in the amount of $139.

Bond was exonerated in both cases and McClellan was remanded to the custody of Knox County Sheriff Don Henery. He was represented by Knox County Public Defender Rodney Smith of O’Neill.
