The "Serial Library Exposer" is in court to face his latest charges for allegedly putting a Papillion neighborhood in danger.  Prosecutors will also file a habitual criminal charge against Nathaniel Dixon.

Dixon, 31, is formally charged with felony burglary and theft in Sarpy County Court.  Judge Todd Hutton goes along with the prosecution's recommendation and sets bond at $250,000 – 10%.

He’s accused of breaking into a home in the Tara Heights neighborhood and stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry on August 2.  Neighbors saw the suspect hopping fences before police tracked him down the next day. 

Dixon's served prison time on 3 different occasions for burglary, attempted burglary, and weapons possession.

He's been caught exposing himself in metro area libraries on more than 10 occasions in the last 2 years.  Indecent exposure has a maximum 120 jail sentence.

"When someone commits the same crime repeatedly and they get out of prison and they commit the same types of offenses we hope the judges will see that and recognize that, and impose sentences accordingly,” said Ben Perlman, a Sarpy County Deputy Attorney.

The habitual criminal charge carries a mandatory 10 year prison sentence, if convicted.  If he is found guilty on the theft and burglary charges he faces 0-22 years in prison.

Dixon will be back in court later this month.
