Lancaster County Treasurer Andrew Stebbing faces five criminal charges, including filing a false income tax return.
The attorney general’s office reports the charges are the result of an investigation by the Nebraska State Patrol and Nebraska Department of Revenue into private motor vehicle transactions conducted by Stebbing and the income generated from those sales.
Stebbing, who voluntarily appeared to be issued a citation and fingerprinted, faces the following charges:
- Two counts of Making a False Statement in a Motor Vehicle Bill of Sale
- One count of Acting as a Motor Vehicle Dealer without a License
- Two counts of Filing a False Income Tax Return
All five counts are Class IV felonies, which are punishable by up to two years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both. Stebbing may have to repay unpaid taxes, penalties, and interest as well.
His first appearance is set for September 15th in Lancaster County Court.
