Woodland Park, NE man pleads "no contest" after woman was found tied up in his home


A northeast Nebraska man, who allegedly held a person against their will, has pleaded "no contest" to charges he faced in the case.

In exchange for 42-year-old Kevin Broberg's plea, prosecutors dismissed three charges, including "abuse of a vulnerable adult." Instead, Broberg pleaded to one count of "false reporting."

Back in December, Broberg was arrested following a welfare check on Keisha Spiers. Stanton County authorities found Spiers unresponsive, and physically restrained with her hands and feet tied, in Broberg's residence in Woodland Park. Broberg's attorney said that Spiers suffers from epilepsy, and was restrained to prevent her from hurting herself following knee surgery.

Broberg will be sentenced May 15th.
