OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — At the request of Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert, City Prosecutor Matt Kuhse has agreed to dismiss all charges related to curfew violations during protests if there is no criminal history.

The announcement was made during Mayor Stothert's press conference on Monday.

If an individual has a criminal history, they will be on diversion with community service. Once the community service is successfully completed, charges will be dismissed and the case will be sealed.

Fines are recommended for those with more criminal history.

If dealing with someone with a lengthy record and multiple charges, that individual will be dealt with normally and adequate charges will be brought about.

The mayor stressed the dismissal of charges won't be a repetitive thing if another curfew becomes effective.
