Omaha - Amanda Heiman has posted bond at the Douglas County Jail. As of Thursday afternoon, she was waiting to be released.
Earlier in the day, a judge set her bond at $10,000, for a felony charge of Providing Alcohol to a Minor Resulting in Serious Injury or Death. Heiman has no criminal record. Her bail would be 10% of the $10,000.
On Tuesday, the Douglas County Attorney filed a criminal complaint against the 20-year-old. Investigators believe she served alcohol to two teenagers earlier this month. 18-year-old Jacob Dickmeyer crashed a car and died after leaving the Fire Barn Sports Bar and Grill in Waterloo. His passenger, 19-year-old Colby Burke, was seriously injured.
The Arrest Affidavit states Dickmeyer and Burke ordered two pitchers of beer, four Jagerbombs, and two long island iced teas. Earlier in the day, Heiman asked another server to take the table because "she didn't want to tell them no". She later gave them alcohol, and gave them her keys to drive her car.
"This is a difficult situation but the formula's pretty simple. You can't have kids selling to kids, you just cant. you can't have businesses that have regulations that are terribly enforced," said Diane Riibe, the Executive Director of Project Extra Mile.
Don Kleine says the bar is not being investigated for criminal charges, but the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission is looking into if the bar committed any violations.
If convicted, Heiman could face five years in prison.
