Dundy County Deputy Found Guilty of Kidnapping and Sex Assault

A former sheriff’s deputy in southwest Nebraska lured a woman to a remote location, handcuffed her and molested her, according to the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.

The deputy, Charles Thibedeau, 37, was convicted in Dundy County District Court on Thursday of kidnapping, third-degree sexual assault and oppression under color of office.

The incident occurred March 22, according to a press release from the Attorney General’s Office.

According to the release:

While on duty working for the Dundy County Sheriff’s Office, Thibedeau sent Facebook messages to the 26-year-old victim, asking her to meet him in a remote location to discuss an official matter.

When she arrived, Thibedeau lied to her about a search of her home by local law enforcement.

Then he asked her to show him her breasts and allow him to touch them. When she refused, he threatened to jail her on a fictitious warrant, handcuffed her, put her in his patrol vehicle and touched her bare breasts.

He later released the woman.

Thibedeau had been a deputy for 5½ months and had not been formally certified because he had not yet attended the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Academy in Grand Island.

Thibedeau faces up to 50 years in prison when he’s sentenced March 5.
