AUBURN – Julius Judy, a 61-year-old man from Auburn, was given 18 months of probation on Wednesday for trying to possess illegal drugs last October.

Court documents show that the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office searched a house on J Street and found a plastic bag with methamphetamine inside. Because Julius Judy cooperated with the deputies, they also searched his apartment at Westbury Heights. In his apartment, they found a pipe with meth residue.

Nemaha County Attorney Angelo Ligouri said that Judy was surprised when the deputies arrived at the J Street house but was polite and cooperative with the officers.

Judy told Judge Julie Smith that he plans to use his probation as a chance to turn his life around and stay out of trouble.

State probation officials claimed that Judy violated his probation after he was arrested in 2023.

Judy’s ex-wife, 53-year-old Shawn Sears, also known as Shawn Judy, was charged with delivering drugs after the search at the J Street house, which is connected to the Auburn Inn Motel. A sheriff’s deputy, after talking to Sears about her meth use, concluded that she doesn’t use meth every day. The deputy told the court that the 7.4 grams of meth found in her home were likely meant for selling.

Shawn Sears has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for a court hearing on September 11.
