NEBRASKA CITY – A Dunbar man is charged with the sexual assault of a child he befriended beginning in 2019.

A $100,000 bond was set for Kelly Kreifels, 58, in Otoe County court, where he is charged with two counts of first degree sexual assault of a minor under the age of 16.

An arrest affidavit says a teen gave a report to deputies at  a school counselor’s office, alleging multiple sexual assaults over a four-year period.

The Otoe County Attorney’s office has filed charges of two offenses involving the same alleged victim.

The affidavit says the girl provided evidence to investigators and a county judge provided a search warrant for Kreifels' Indiana Street residence.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled March 2.
