A Neligh Man was given a prison sentence in Holt County District Court.
According to Holt County Attorney Brent Kelly, on August 8th, Jacob J. Grim, a 23 year old Antelope County man was sentenced by the Holt County District Court to a minimum of two years and a maximum of four years in prison. Grim was convicted of burglarizing a building in North O’Neill in early 2011. Grim was originally sentenced to a term of probation. His probation was revoked following proceedings initiated by the Department of Probation and the Holt County Attorney’s Office.
County Attorney Brent Kelly commented “While I hate to see a young man, with a young family, receive a lengthy prison sentence, we simply have to take a hard line on thieves and burglars in our county. By repeatedly breaking the rules, and by not honoring his agreement to follow the terms and conditions of his probation, Mr. Grim put himself in a very unfortunate position. I hope his case will serve as a reminder to other probationers that they need to take their obligations very seriously.”
