From News Partner News Channel Nebraska:
A Bloomfield man will be sentenced in November after pleading no contest to charges of cattle rustling.
Court documents indicate that forty-four year old Timothy Ketelsen changed his not guilty pleas in Knox County District Court earlier this month. Ketelsen pleaded no contest to four separate charges of felony theft, illegal sale of livestock and tax evasion. In return, the prosecution dropped five other charges.
Ketelsen was arrested in July, after authorities say he stole cattle from two different feedlots in Bloomfield and sold them in Yankton, South Dakota.
Ketelsen faces up to 65 years in prison when he’s sentenced on November 24th.
