Hoskins man sentenced to prison
STANTON — Several people were sentenced or made court appearances Monday morning in Stanton County District Court, according to county officials
Jeremy Heiderman, a 32-year-old Hoskins man, was sentenced to 270 days in prison following his conviction on charges of driving while intoxicated and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest.
Heiderman was originally arrested in June by the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office following a high speed chase that started near Woodland Park and went through Wayne County and ended near Randolph.
Also entering a no-contest plea to felony charges of possession of a firearm and felony theft was Keith Newman, 31, of Allen. Newman will be sentenced early next year and faces a mandatory minimum of three years in prison on the charges.
Newman was arrested in March by the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office when it responded to a break-in in progress at a rural residence north of Pilger. Newman and a female accomplice were found in possession of stolen firearms and other stolen property, including a vehicle stolen the night before from a Norfolk car dealer.
His co-defendant has already pled guilty and will be sentenced next month.
Bailey Beaumont, 21, Norfolk, was ordered to serve 90 days in jail on an attempted possession of hashish. He was arrested last year during a traffic stop by the sheriff’s office.
Tucker Lanz, 22, Stanton, entered a not guilty plea to a charge of manslaughter and his jury trial was set to begin in January.
He faces up to 20 years in prison, if convicted in the death of Hunter Hetzler who was killed last May in rural Stanton County.
