Nebraska woman sentenced 90 days in jail for burning aborted fetus

An 18-year-old Nebraska woman will spend 90 days in jail and have two years of probation after authorities say she burned and buried her aborted fetus with the help of her mother in 2022.

Celeste Burgess, of Norfolk, Nebraska, was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in May to a felony charge of concealing or abandoning a dead body.

The following misdemeanor charges were dropped in an agreement with prosecutors:

  • False reporting
  • Concealing the death of another person

“The Court specifically finds that while probation is appropriate, confinement is necessary because without this confinement, it would depreciate the seriousness of the crime or promote disrespect for the law,” the judge’s order read.
