Haun to face jury trial in July

The former Kimball city councilman sentenced to prison last summer for the attempted first degree sexual assault of a child will face trial in July on two felony counts in a different case.

Scott Haun entered not guilty pleas Friday in Scotts Bluff County District Court to charges of 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 not guilty pleas mean 50 year old Haun will face trial in Scotts Bluff County District Court during the July jury term.
