Siblings Get Jail for Stealing from Kearney Church


KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) -- A brother and sister from Minden have been given jail time and probation for breaking into a Kearney church and stealing cash and other items.

Alisha Galicia, 21, and her 18-year-old brother, Clifton Dedrick, had made plea deals and were convicted of attempted burglary. Court records say Dedrick was sentenced earlier this week and Galicia was sentenced last week. Prosecutors say the two broke into Holy Cross Lutheran Church on Nov. 20 and took $115 in crash, four debit cards and office equipment.

Galicia, who also is known as Alisha Dedrick, was given 60 days in jail and three years of probation. Her brother was given 120 days in jail and three years of probation.

The two must jointly pay $2,400 in restitution.
