Comstock Founder Convicted

Comstock festival founder Henry Nuxoll was convicted of a felony Dec. 4 for paying vendors at last summer’s events with bad checks.

Nuxoll, who previously promoted the Godstock, Comstock Rock and Comstock Windmill festivals, pleaded no contest in a deal with prosecutors in Custer County District Court in Broken Bow, Neb.

He agreed to pay nearly $100,000 in restitution in an agreement that stipulates that he will not be prosecuted for any other bad checks dated before Dec. 4.

Nuxoll’s sentencing is set for January and prosecutors say they will not oppose probation, according to KHAS-TV.
