"Forbidden Romance" : Neb. man's sentence in burglary case includes no dating for three years, report says

Dating, Romance
No wining and dining, no romantic liaisons - that's part of a Nebraska judge's probation order for a man convicted of attempted burglary; it lasts for three years.

(CBS/AP) MADISON, Neb. - Jeffrey Hoadley, a northeast Nebraska man convicted of an attempted felony, has been sentenced to three years of probation - and no dating.

"You need to focus on you," the judge told Hoadley in explaining the conditions.

Authorities say the 21-year-old Hoadley, of Carroll, helped plan the Dec. 5 burglary of an auto parts store, but backed out as he and an accomplice approached the business.

The Norfolk Daily News reports Hoadley was initially charged with burglary, but he pleaded guilty in June to a lesser offense.

His attorney had requested probation so Hoadley could seek help for reliance on  methamphetamine and marijuana.

On Friday, Judge Mark Johnson sentenced Hoadley to three years' probation and a 120-day jail term that could be waived if he successfully completes the terms of his probation -- including an order not be involved in any romantic relationships during his probation.
