Lancaster County, Judge Karen B. Flowers
Attorneys: Scott Helvie (Public Defender’s Office) (Appellant) --- Melissa R. Vincent (Attorney General’s Office)
Criminal: Driving during revocation, first offense, Class IV felony
Proceedings below: The trial court found sufficient evidence to support the conviction and judged Appellant guilty. He was sentenced 90 days in jail with a 15 year license revocation. He was authorized to obtain an ignition interlock permit as soon as eligible by statute.
Issues: The district court erred in (1) admitting Exhibit 1, as it contained hearsay and violation of confrontation; (2) failing to apply State v. Hernandez, 283 Neb. 423 (2012) to this case; (3) finding sufficient evidence to support a conviction; (4) imposing an excessive sentence.
