Jailers Say Man On Work Release Returned Drunk

AUBURN – An Auburn man faces a felony charge after jailers say he drank alcohol while on work release.

26-year-old Steven Hickey was serving a seven-day sentence and was given work release.

On the fourth day, jailers say he returned late with alcohol on his breath. Hickey’s employer said he left from work early to go to a doctor’s appointment, but Nemaha County prosecutors say he instead went to get drunk.

He is scheduled for arraignment Aug. 13.
