Plea Deadline Date Extended in Grand Jury Case

A plea deadline date was continued to Thursday, April 23 at 9 a.m. in a case involving former Marshall County Highway Superintendent Neal Haeck. A judge granted the decision on behalf of the defense in a judgment released yesterday.

A Grand Jury returned an indictment against Haeck in September of 2014 alleging theft of scrap metal from the county in 2012 and 2013. He was employed at the highway department at the time the alleged acts occurred.

According to court documents, Haeck is accused of stealing $12,351.41. He is charged with theft as a Class D felony.

Haeck retired from the Marshall County Highway Department in May of 2014 after working with the county for 34 years. He served as the highway superintendent from April 2000 until his retirement.
