BEATRICE – Probation has been revoked for a Fairbury man. 23-year-old Dalton Meyer will now serve a two-year state prison term, under the re-sentencing ordered by Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner.

The convictions that led to probation were for felony theft by receiving stolen property and misdemeanor driving during revocation. His attorney, Jim Nelson, said Dalton was not expecting to be kept on probation.

"He screwed up, but he's taken responsibility for his additional screw-ups. He has not wasted much time with the court, he's not asking to be continued on probation. He knows he's messed up to the point where he's going to jail. He acknowledges that and he's ready to stand up and take his punishment."


The judge ordered restitution to be paid in the case, totaling $1,307. Meyer was being held in a Jefferson County case but has been housed in the Seward County Jail.

Meyer was arrested last November in Jefferson County for terroristic threats and criminal mischief and convicted this past March 3rd. Then, on April 3rd, he was arrested in Lancaster County for third-degree criminal trespass. He had failed to appear at four probation drug testing appointments and two other office appointments.
