State inspector accused of false mad cow reports

Galen Niehues, 41, was indicted by the U.S. Attorney's Office on Nov. 24 on charges that he faked mad cow disease reports. According to the indictment, Niehues submitted travel expenses and investigation reports on 92 cattle suspected of having mad cow disease but never actually performed the inspections. He was employed by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture as a cattle inspector from July 2009 through March. If convicted Niehues faces up to 25 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. The Center for Disease control reports that there have only been three cases of mad cow disease in the United States. None of the cases were linked to Nebraska cattle.
