A-20-607, State v. Khalaf

State of Nebraska (Appellee) v. Adris K. Khalaf (Appellant)

District Court for Lancaster County, Judge Kevin McManaman

Attorney for Appellant: Sean M. Reagan and Megan E. Shupe

Attorney for Appellee: Nathan A. Liss

Criminal Action: sufficiency of evidence; ineffective assistance of counsel; plain error

Action Taken by Trial Court: The county court for Lancaster County convicted Khalaf of one count of third-degree sexual assault, and the district court for Lancaster County affirmed Khalaf’s conviction and sentence.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Khalaf assigns that the district court erred in (1) finding sufficient evidence in the record to uphold Khalaf’s conviction; (2) failing to find that Khalaf’s trial counsel provided ineffective assistance; and (3) considering prejudicial testimony related to Khalaf’s use of controlled substances. Khalaf further alleges that (4) his counsel on appeal to the district court was ineffective for failing to timely file a statement of errors in the district court.
