Haun waives preliminary hearing

The former Kimball city councilman sentenced to prison last summer for the attempted first degree sexual assault of a child waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Scotts Bluff County Court Wednesday.

Scott Haun is charged with theft of property and abuse of a vulnerable adult. Haun is accused of taking money from a woman's probate account while he was acting as the woman's conservator and guardian.

Haun is alleged to have taken nearly $20,000 from an account established for Doris Anderson of Kimball over 18 months beginning in May of 2010 to pay for his personal credit cards, and for cash. Haun is also accused of trying to cover up the withdrawals by inflating Anderson's expenditures, including her boarding costs.

The 50 year old Haun will be arraigned in Scotts Bluff County District Court on Friday, March 29th at 1 p.m.
