Feddersen's assault charge altered in preliminary hearing, victim's injuries not severe

SIDNEY, Neb. - Jackson Feddersen, 18, of Sidney who is accused of breaking into a Sidney home, assaulting a resident with a crowbar and stealing $3,000, had his Preliminary Hearing on Thursday.

Due to a conflict of interest with the Cheyenne County Attorney’s Office, the case has been handed to the Nebraska Assistant Attorney General, Doug Warner. Warner said that upon further investigation of the victim’s injuries, it was determined that they weren’t severe, lowering Feddersen’s First Degree Assault charge to a Second Degree Assault charge.

The case has been bound to District Court. Feddersen is also facing four other felony charges including: Strangulation, Burglary, Terroristic Threats, and Robbery.

According to the arrest affidavit, on August 31, the Sidney Police Department responded to a house on Spruce Street, and upon arrival, authorities located an injured 19-year old male. The officer on scene said the victim’s face was covered in blood, and the victim’s belongings scattered. There was an open window with the screen cut open in the bathroom that the victim said two males with masks entered through.

The victim said he was woken up by getting hit in the back and head with a crowbar, punched in the face, and choked by a man with a ski mask. The teen was able to remove the mask and recognized the attacker as Feddersen.

Feddersen is scheduled for Arraignment on October 4 in the Cheyenne County District Court Room. Bond has been set at $250,000.
