S-17-1202 State v. Carlos A. Garcia (Appellant)

Douglas County, Judge Shelly R. Stratman

Attorneys: Peder Bartling (Bartling Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O.) — Joe Meyer (Attorney General’s Office)

Criminal: Robbery

Proceedings Below: Following a jury trial, the court convicted Carlos A. Garcia of robbery and imposed a sentence of 6 to 10 years’ imprisonment.

Issues: The district court erred in (1) permitting the State to offer specific physical evidence at trial against Appellant, (2) determining that the State presented sufficient evidence for the jury to convict Appellant of robbery, (3) determining Appellant was competent to proceed legally to trial and sentencing, and (4) imposing an excessive sentence. He also alleges that he received ineffective assistance of counsel and that the accumulation of errors necessitates reversal.
