LINCOLN — Devastation struck Patrick Combs' family, and his father's business, in the early 1980s.
Lancaster County prosecutors have charged the former Husker public-address announcer with four felonies: theft, attempted theft, abuse of a vulnerable adult and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device.
Former Husker public-address announcer Patrick Combs was following the advice of professionals and complying with the wishes of an elderly woman, not swindling her of her money, as authorities have alleged, his attorney said Monday.
Lincoln attorney Robert Creager said in a written statement that Patrick Combs is a victim of a “rush to judgment by the investigators." He issued the statement as Combs waived his right to a preliminary hearing. Combs’ case was bound over to district court, where he is scheduled to enter a formal plea on the charges Sept. 9.
Combs, 49, of Gretna, has been charged with five felonies: abuse of a vulnerable adult, attempted theft, two counts of theft by unlawful taking and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device.
