A Neligh man accused of sexual assault of a child has agreed to move from Pioneer Homes to another location to avoid violating his bond.
Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore testified Wednesday that numerous complaints had been received to his office as well as Pioneer Homes about Darryl Lierman residing at Pioneer Homes following his release from the Antelope County Law Enforcement Center. Moore said Pioneer Homes was not made aware that Lierman was living there.
Lierman's bond was originally set at $500,000 but was lowered three times. Lierman was released March 2 on 10 percent of the $50,000 bond.
Moore said he asked for clarification from Judge Mark Johnson. Moore had received requests from media on Lierman's address, but Moore said he did not know if that was public record. Moore also wanted clarification on whether Pioneer Homes "would be an appropriate place" for Lierman to reside since his bond stipulated no direct or indirect contact with minors who are under the age of 18.
During discussion at Lierman's evidentiary hearing at the Antelope County Courthouse, Lierman agreed to leave Pioneer Homes by Friday. The only official action taken by the court at the hearing on his residency was to mandate that Lierman will report his new address to the court, rather than Moore, which will make it public record.
"The housing issue was resolved rather quickly as Lierman agreed he would be out by Friday," Moore said. "The judge never ruled on it because Lierman agreed to leave."
Lierman is charged with three counts of first degree sexual assault of a child (class 1B felonies), three counts of third degree sexual assault of a child and four counts of child abuse (class IIIA felonies).
