A-13-958, State v. Nathan B. Ernstmeyer (Appellant)
Lancaster County, District Judge Paul D. Merritt, Jr.
Attorney for Appellant: Justin J. Cook (Lincoln Law, LLC)
Attorney for Appellee: Nathan A. Liss (Attorney General’s Office)
Criminal Action: Aggravated DUI
Action Taken by Trial Court: The county court found that Deputy Reha had reasonable suspicion to initiate a traffic stop of Ernstmeyer’s vehicle, and thus overruled Ernstmeyer’s motion to suppress. After a stipulated trial, the county court found Ernstmeyer guilty of DUI, first offense, over .15 concentration. The district court, acting as an appellate court, affirmed the county court’s denial of Ernstmeyer’s motion to suppress and the conviction.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Ernstmeyer assigns: (1) the county court erred in overruling Ernstmeyer’s motion to suppress and finding that the traffic stop was lawful because there was probable cause for the same; and (2) the district court erred in affirming the county court’s decision overruling Ernstmeyer’s motion to suppress and finding that the traffic stop was justified.
