A former student and football player at Midland Luteran College in Fremont has been convicted of raping a 15-year-old Fremont girl in 2008.
30-year-old Joshua Keadle could be sent to prison for as many as 50 years when his sentencing is handed down April 24th. For now, Keadle will remain in jail.
A Dodge County District jury found Keadle guilty of raping the teen-ager in an apartment on the campus of Midland Lutheran College, which is now Midland University. Investigators continue to investigate whether Keadle had any involvement in the 2010 disappearance of Peru State College student Tyler Thomas, a 19-year-old from Omaha. Keadle has admitted to being with Thomas the night she disappeared, but has insisted that he didn’t harm her.
