GERING, Neb. (AP) - A 27-year-old Scottsbluff man accused of stealing from his father has been sentenced to jail.

Online court records say Dustin Leonhardt was sentenced on Monday to two terms of 365 days, to be served at the same time, and was fined $1,300.

Records say Leonhardt pleaded no contest and was convicted of misdemeanor forgery, misdemeanor attempted possession of a controlled substance and convicted of a drug possession infraction. The charges had been lowered and two other charges dropped in exchange for his pleas.

A court affidavit says Leonhardt used his father’s check card three times this spring and wrote a check on his father’s account. The affidavit says the drugs were discovered on Leonhardt and in his father’s backyard shed, where officers found and arrested Leonhardt.
