The former Nebraska prosecutor ends up in prison for violating the rights of his romantic rival

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – The former Dodge County attorney was sentenced Friday to nine months in prison for conspiracy to deprive her of rights under the law.

There is no parole in the federal system.

The former prosecutor, 47-year-old Oliver J. Glass, will serve one year of probation and pay a $3,000 fine.

In 2020, Glass conspired with others to strip an individual of his constitutional rights.

They used the resources at their disposal as officers of the law to get information about the man who was dating Glass’s wife.

Glass later pleaded guilty to violating that man’s rights.

U.S. Chief District Judge Robert F. Rossiter noted that Glass violated his professional ethical obligations and public trust.

US Attorney Steven Russell echoed that sentiment.

“Oliver Glass has, in this matter, acted maliciously and from low motives as he abused his office,” he said. “This type of behavior undermines public trust in the criminal justice system and I hope this ruling will help restore that trust.”

FBI Special Agent in Charge Omaha Eugene Kowel said after the sentencing, “Oliver Glass used the power of his elected office to carry out a personal vendetta. Over and over again he abused his authority by violating the rights of his victim ”.
