For The Record

Blue Springs Man Charged with Violating Harassment Order

Derrie Seeman, age 41, of Blue Springs, had his case bound over to Gage County District Court on Friday, September 2, 2022. Jeffrey A. Gaertig was the presiding judge. The defendant is represented by attorney Timothy S. Noerrlinger.
Seeman is charged with possession of a controlled substance, a class 4 felony punishable by two years of imprisonment and a one year of post-release supervision.
According to the Probable Cause for Warrantless Arrest affidavit, a search warrant was executed on December 9, 2021, at approximately 9:45 a.m., at the defendant’s residence in Liberty. According to the affidavit, a deputy searched Seeman’s bedroom and, “located a tin cup with a plastic baggie that contained a white powdery residue. The baggie was seized and sent to the Nebraska State patrol Crime Lab where it tested positive for cocaine, a Schedule II controlled substance.”
Although the residence searched was in Liberty, the court file indicates Seeman’s current residence is in Blue Springs.
Because the charge is a felony, the case was transferred to District Court.
The search warrant was authorized as part of an investigation into a different possible crime. According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, “The Gage County Sheriff’s Office became aware of a conspiracy to commit murder in the Blue Springs, Nebraska area. During the course of the investigation evidence was obtained that indicated 40-year-old Derrie Seeman and his 71-year-old father, William (Bill) Seeman, had been plotting to kill or have killed a family member, a juvenile male, and another adult male in Blue Springs.”
Seeman and his father were both arrested the morning of Thursday, December 9, 2021. However, Seeman has not been charged with conspiracy to commit murder. Instead, he has been charged with terroristic threats and stalking, both class 3A felonies punishable by up to 20 years in prison. He is also charged with two counts of third-degree domestic assault and violation of a protection order, each a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
William Seeman has not been charged.
