Nebraska Inmate Gets Additional Time for 2013 Fatal Crash

More prison time has been given to the Nebraska inmate who crashed a state prison van, killing a Lincoln woman. Thirty-six-year-old Jeremy Dobbe had pleaded no contest to manslaughter in the death of 47-year-old Joyce Meeks, who was killed in June of 2013, in Lincoln. On Monday Dobbe was sentenced to 18 to 20 more years in prison. Dobbe was seen speeding and swerving before he struck Meeks' minivan. He was transporting inmates as part of a state work-release program. Prison records say Dobbe already was serving five to seven years for selling meth, threatening people and criminal mischief.
