Case Summary

A-19-0383, State of Nebraska v. Robert E. Edwards, Sr. (Appellant)

District Court for Custer County, District Judge Karin L. Noakes

Attorney for Appellant:  Brandon John Dugan (Buffalo County Public Defender’s Office)

Attorneys for Appellee:  Austin Nicholas Relph & Douglas J. Peterson (Attorney General’s Office)

Criminal Action:  First degree sexual assault of a child

Action taken by the Trial Court:  The trial court denied Edwards’ motion to suppress and certain aspects of his motion in limine and granted the State’s motion to offer evidence of certain prior bad acts. After the jury convicted Edwards, the court sentenced him to 25 to 30 years’ imprisonment.

Assignment of Error on Appeal:  Did the trial court err in denying Edwards’ motion in limine and granting the State’s motion to offer evidence of prior bad acts? Did the trial court err in denying Edwards’ motion to suppress? Was Edwards prejudiced by the introduction of impermissible evidence? Did the trial court abuse its discretion by imposing an excessive sentence?
