An Arapahoe man has entered an agreement with federal prosecutors which will wipe away charges that he failed to disclose knowledge of a plot to abduct the Furnas County Sheriff.
55-year-old Anthony Todd Weverka had been scheduled to stand trial for his role in the plot to kidnap Furnas County Sheriff Kurt Kapperman.
The United States Attorney Office reports Weverka entered a pretrial diversion agreement in which he confessed and agreed to conditions that, if satisfied, would result in the charges against him being dismissed.
Weverka will serve 18 months’ probation and must perform 50 hours of community service.
Weverka had been accused of not fully disclosing information about a Canadian woman’s alleged plot to kidnap a sheriff and judge in Tennessee. The plot also allegedly included breaking an inmate out of the Furnas County Jail in Beaver City and the abduction of Kapperman. Weverka had told Kapperman his life might be in danger, but didn’t give details.
