MADISON, Neb. – A northeast Nebraska feedlot operator accused of sexually abusing two teenage employees was back in court for an unrelated charge on Monday.

Travis Belina was indicted on a felony theft charge in Madison County Court.

Court documents allege that Belina took or “exercised control over movable property of another” exceeding $5,000.

The 25-year-old was advised of the nature of the charges and all possible penalties. He is next scheduled to be in court on the theft charge Feb. 21.

The Battle Creek native was already facing unrelated felony charges, having pleaded not guilty last year to all charges related to the alleged sexual abuse of two of his teenage employees.

Belina remains out on bond after posting 10% of $100,000 in August.

Belina is charged with two counts of child abuse and two counts of tampering with a witness, all of which are felonies. He’s also charged with two misdemeanor counts of third-degree sexual assault.

The Belina Feedlot LLC operator is accused of paying two teenagers to keep silent after he allegedly sexually abused them over a period of several months.

According to court documents, Belina allegedly engaged in sexual contact with the two accusers while they worked for him. The two boys reported the alleged crimes in July, stating that Belina had previously given them money and alcohol to stay quiet. An affidavit filed by investigators stated that the two teens were "extremely embarrassed" and "quite upset", leading to their reporting of the incidents.

The two reported victims listed at least 10 instances of alleged abuse, including one situation in which Belina allegedly had one of the teens drive Belina and the other teen in a vehicle. Belina allegedly told the driving teen to lock the doors, and he reportedly attempted sexual contact with the non-driving teen. When the teen in the back of the vehicle asked to leave, Belina allegedly told the two teens to switch places. At least one of the teens said he was afraid of losing his job as a result of the incident.

A May pre-trial hearing is scheduled for the case of his alleged abuse, with a jury trial scheduled for June.
