Case Summary

A-19-0851, State v. Houston (appellant)

Douglas County, District Judge J. Russell Derr

Attorney for Appellant:  Korey T. Taylor (Douglas County Public Defender’s Office)

Attorney for Appellee:  Siobhan E. Duffy (Attorney General’s Office)

Criminal Action:  Probation Revocation

Action Taken by Trial Court: The district court revoked Houston’s probation and sentenced him to 5 to 6 years’ imprisonment for robbery.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  Houston argued on appeal that (1) the district court violated his procedural due process right to confront adverse witnesses and relied on unsubstantiated and unreliable testimony which did not establish evidence of a probation violation, (2) the court erred in finding clear and convincing evidence of a criminal violation of probation and revoked his probation for noncriminal and substance abuse violations prior to the imposition of custodial sanctions, and (3) imposed an excessive sentence
