A 57-year-old man is being held on $1 Million bond in connection with a Dawson County child sexual assault case. Timothy Bohlen of Cozad could be released if 10% of that amount or $100,000 is posted. Bohlen was arraigned in Dawson County Court Monday morning on a couple of charges including Sexual Assault of a Child. An affidavit in the case has been sealed. The most serious charge is a Class 1B Felony which has a penalty of 20 years to life imprisonment. Bohlen’s next court hearing was set for February 14, 2023 at 11:00am.
Bohlen is required to register on the state Sex Offender Registry for 15 years. It stems from a Dawson County misdemeanor conviction of 3rd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child in 2017.
