Jail ordered for man whose probation was revoked

January 8, 2019

STANTON — It was a busy Monday in Stanton County District Court, with several pleas accepted and sentences handed out by District Judge Mark Johnson.

Austin Murphy, 21, formerly of Pilger, was sentenced to 270 days in jail following his conviction for third degree sexual assault after his probation was revoked. Murphy was arrested in 2017 by the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office following an investigation into the sexual assault of a 15-year-old female in rural Stanton County.

Sentenced to 24 months of intensive probation for a possession of methamphetamine charge was Donald Detlefsen, 50, of Stanton.

Detlefsen was also ordered to serve 90 days in jail as part of his probation. He was arrested last year by the sheriff’s office following the service of a search warrant at his Stanton residence.

Entering guilty pleas were Kyle Kirstine, 37, Norfolk, to a felony charge of terroristic threats. He was arrested in November by the sheriff’s office at a Woodland Park residence after threatening to kill a female during a disturbance.

Cody Schnebel, 27, Hoskins, entered a guilty plea to a felony fourth offense driving while intoxicated and also to operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest. He was arrested in October after leading the sheriff’s office on a high speed pursuit from near Woodland Park to north of Pilger where he wrecked his pickup.

Both men will be sentenced in March.

Also a 40-year-old Woodland Park man, Cory Haase, had his bond revoked on a felony theft charge and was jailed pending the posting of an additional $5,000 cash bond. Haase had been arrested several times while out on bond, which were violations of his initial cash bond.
