Nicholas D. Harris, 37, of O’Neill appeared in front of the Honorable Kale Burdick in the Holt County courtroom in O’Neill, on Oct. 10, for sentencing on a DUI charge committed Jan 22.

Burdick fined Harris $500; ordered an 18-month term of probation, including fees of $570; ordered a 10-day jail sentence, with credit given for one day previously served; and revoked his driver’s license for 18 months. Harris was assessed $105 costs of prosecution.

He pleaded guilty, in July, to driving under the influence of alcohol, second offense, a Class W misdemeanor, after reaching a plea bargain with special Holt County prosecutor Hanna Knox Jensen, who reduced a felony count of third-offense DUI.

Jensen was appointed special prosecutor when Holt County attorney Brent Kelly declared a conflict of interest. Harris was represented by Ashley Boettcher of O’Neill.

Michele J. Brindisi, 59, of O’Neill entered a guilty plea, pursuant to a plea bargain with Kelly, to an amended count, criminal attempt of leaving the scene of a property-damage accident, a Class 3 misdemeanor. Brindisi was fined $500 and taxed $50 costs for the June 26 offense. Brindisi was represented by Kathleen Rockey of Norfolk.

Anthony Rivera, 29, of Panama City Florida, pleaded guilty, by waiver, to possession of drug paraphernalia and speeding. Rivera was fined $100 and $25, respectively, and taxed $49 costs for the June 15, 2022, infractions. He was cited, by a Holt County officer west of O’Neill on Highway 20.

Heather N. Ollendick, 39, of O’Neill pleaded guilty, by waiver, to a Class 3 misdemeanor, second-degree criminal trespass. Ollendick was fined $100 and assessed $49 costs for the Sept. 10 crime. Ollendick was cited Sept. 10 in O’Neill’s Carney Park. The O’Neill officer noted she had previously been warned not to enter the park after midnight.
