Billy Barritt

Billy Barritt was arraigned Sept. 5 in Jefferson County District Court on two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child, three counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child and a probation violation. Barritt was represented by Robert Koras, from the Nebraska Commission of Public Advocacy. Barritt pleaded not guilty to the charges and is facing up to life in prison on just the two first-degree charges. If convicted he would be sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison for the Class ID felonies. His case was scheduled for a pre-trial status hearing on Nov. 7 and he remains in the Jefferson County Jail pending the posting of bond. His probation revocation case was also postponed until Nov. 7.

Alexandria Board Proposes Sex Offender Ordinance

Alexandria village board considering an ordinance that would restrict where convicted sex offenders may live and would fine landlords who rent to them. Proposed ordinance would stem from a convicted sex offender living in Alexandria and a family is concerned about his living in the proximity of their home.

The ordinance would bar sex offenders from living within 500 feet of schools and parks and school bus stops on village property.

However, The ACLU of Nebraska has told the Village Board the proposed ordinance is unconstitutional.
