Colby T. Dewey, 20, of North Platte was convicted of third degree domestic assault in April and sentenced to 14 months probation, beginning April 5.
Dewey was back in Lincoln County Court Friday to explain to Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull why he violated his probation.
Apparently Dewey failed to attend rehab for the required period of time, and gave a phony address while he was living at the Pawnee Hotel.
When he came to court, Turnbull informed him of an active arrest warrant for the probation violation, issued a week ago. Dewey was taken into custody by the sheriffs’ deputy in the courtroom and put in jail, held without bond.
When Dewey was convicted in April, another charge of using of a deadly weapon in the assault was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
At that time, Dewey allegedly approached his ex at Memorial Park carrying a five-inch Bowie knife, according to Police Officer Troy Erickson. Lincoln County Attorney Rebecca Harling said the woman said she felt threatened, but she made no mention of a direct physical assault.
