My question involves criminal law for the state of: Nebraska
How would someone get additional charges while booked in jail? My ex got arrested last night for unauthorized use of a vehicle. When I looked up the inmate search for the jail he is in this morning I saw an additional charge of "criminal mischief $1500-5000" and is a Class I misdemeanor. The vehicle one is Class III. I just found it odd during the night he got an additional charge while in jail. I suppose since no one would bail him out he got mad and maybe broke some crap...just found it odd especially for criminal mischief with that amount behind it.
