Two North Platte men will do 60 days in jail after they each pled guilty to domestic assault Thursday in Lincoln County Court. Sean McCarthy, 43, was sentenced to 60 days jail after pleading guilty in Lincoln County Court. Brenda McCarthy told police that she and Sean had an argument and he punched her in the face, and she had to leave their home, according to court documents.
In a plea agreement with the Lincoln County Attorney’s Office a charge of false reporting against McCarthy was dropped. He also received credit for six days already served. However, he is also being held as a fugitive from justice from Lancaster County which carries a $3,500 bond.
Jay Shrives, 54, pled guilty to simple domestic assault and was sentenced to 60 days with nine days credit.
On Jan. 1 Shrives and his intimate partner argued and Jay pushed her head down and slapped her, causing a cut on her nose, police said. Shrives was jailed and held on a $5,000 bond.
The case of Jeremy Tobey, 29, of North Platte, was continued to allow time for a public defender to be appointed.
Tobey is charged with three counts of domestic assault, terroristic threats, strangulation and use of a weapon to commit a felony, as well as child abuse. He is held on a $100,000 bond.
Tobey asked for a bond reduction, which was denied.
Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull recused himself from the case. He said Tobey once dated his daughter.
County Judge Michael Piccolo will consider the charges after an attorney is appointed for Tobey.
