Deshler man in custody again on sex assault charges
Juston Schmidt, 39, of Deshler, was arrested Tuesday morning on charges of sexual assault of a child.
According to the arrest affidavit kept on file at the Thayer County courthouse, Schmidt is charged with one count of incest, a class III felony; one count of sexual assault of a child in the first degree, a class 1B felony; and two counts of sexual assault of a child in the third degree, both class IIIA felonies.
In December 2012, similar charges were brought against Schmidt stemming from a separate incident, but dismissed a few weeks later. In that case the Deshler man was facing two charges of sexual assault of a child and two counts of incest.
He is currently in jail at the Thayer County Law Enforcement Center on a $1 million/10 percent bond.
