Two Guilty in Kidnapping and Robbery in South Jeffco

Two men accused of kidnapping and robbing two people in south Jeffco have been convicted and are now awaiting sentencing.


Following six days of trial, a Jefferson County jury found Jeremy Scott Hackbarth, DOB: 4-17-84, guilty of numerous counts for his role. Codefendant Casey Daniel Cleveland, DOB: 6-7-85, appeared in court on August 29 and pled guilty to two counts of Aggravated Robbery (F3).


On September 16, 2017 Jeremy Scott Hackbarth, DOB: 4-17-84, and Casey Daniel Cleveland, DOB: 6-7-85 were drinking at a sports bar at S. Wadsworth and W. Chatfield in unincorporated Jefferson County. They met a young man and a young woman. The four visited throughout the evening. All four left at the bar at the same time. Hackbarth and Cleveland asked if the man and woman would give them a ride. They agreed. Hackbarth and Cleveland climbed into the back seat. As they drove southbound on Wadsworth, Cleveland pulled a knife and put it to the male’s (driver) neck. Hackbarth reached forward and put his arm around the female’s neck and threatened to kill her. He choked her repeatedly. Hackbarth and Cleveland ordered the male to keep driving. The female, in fear for her life, opened the door and jumped from the moving car. The car was traveling 50 mph. Hackbarth and Cleveland ordered the male to turn into a neighborhood and pull over. They threatened to shoot him and told him to get out of the car. Hackbarth and Cleveland then left the area in the female victim’s car.


The Sheriff’s Department arrived and contacted both victims. The female was injured but survived her escape from the moving car. Hackbarth and Cleveland were arrested just hours later.

The jury found Hackbarth guilty of ten felony counts, including Kidnapping (F2), Aggravated Robbery (F3); Second Degree Assault (F4) and Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft (F3).


Cleveland will be sentenced on September 20 at 11:00. Hackbarth will be sentenced on December 6 at 1:30.
