    Ex-sheriff gets eight days in jail, probation

    LINCOLN - Former Holt County Sheriff Bruce Theye will spend eight days in jail, repay the cost of an audit and serve two years' probation for failing to properly inventory county property, a judge ruled Monday.

    The judge also sentenced Theye, 54, to write a public apology to "the citizens of Holt County" to be posted for 60 days at the courthouse in O'Neill.

    Theye was voted out of office last year after a stormy four-year term. It was marked by frequent spats with other county officials, his removal as supervisor of the county jail and surviving allegations - and a trial - of neglect of duties.

    Earlier this year, Theye was found guilty by County Judge Douglas Luebe of a misdemeanor, filing a "false or incorrect" inventory statement, a report required annually of county officials.

    At the time, Judge Luebe noted Theye's "willful, stubborn, obstinate approach" to repeated attempts by the county board to get an accurate inventory.

    On Monday, the judge also sentenced Theye to perform 40 hours of community service and help the county account for lost or missing property from the Sheriff's Office.

    The Holt County Board recently approved a third property audit of the Sheriff's Office.

    Phone calls were not immediately returned by Theye, who now lives in Loup City, Neb., and works for the Sherman County Sheriff's Office, or his attorney, Rod Palmer of Ainsworth.

    Sometimes, doing the right thing means p***ing off the bosses.

    I still think troopers and deputies who work in the middle of no where with essentially no back up are the 'men among men' of the LEO world.
