Heineman Weighs In On Sentencing

Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman sent a letter to the Douglas County Attorney stating if a decision is made to seek the death penalty for suspected serial killer Nikko Jenkins he would support it. Governor Heineman says it is also time to take a good, hard look at the state’s “good-time” law.

A law signed in 1992 says that every person sentenced to prison will automatically be given “good time”. Heineman promises to work hard to get that law changed.

This was brought into light after Nikko Jenkins was released from prison on July 30th and two weeks later prosecutors say went on a killing spree and murdered four people in ten days.
