Former student’s trial begins today
A jury trial for former CSC student, Timothy C. Jungquist is set for today and Friday in the Dawes County District Court. The only thing that could prevent the trial from happening would be a possible plea agreement.
Jungquist was arrested by Chadron Police Oct. 8, 2014, in connection with an alleged first-degree sexual assault in Andrews Hall that reportedly occurred Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014, Chadron Police Department and Dawes County Sheriff’s officials said.
He was arrested after the alleged victim, a female, reported the assault Oct. 7, 2014, police stated in a press release. The Eagle does not publish the names of victims or alleged victims of sexual assault.
Jungquist was released from Dawes County Jail Oct. 15, 2014, after posting a 10 percent of $50,000 bond, following a bond hearing that same day. His original bond was set at 10 percent of $150,000.
The fall 2013 campus directory lists Jungquist as a freshman of Pegram, Tennessee, majoring in physical education and health (K-12). In April 2014, he was sworn in as an at large senator to the CSC Student Senate. He is no longer serving as a CSC Student Senator.
Jon Hansen, vice president of enrollment management, marketing, and student services, said Oct. 22, 2014, that Jungquist is, “no longer a student at Chadron State College.”
Hansen was unable to comment on the status of Jungquist’s enrollment, if Jungquist withdrew himself from class, or if he was administratively withdrawn at CSC under the Family Education Rights Protection Act.
