A-12-1012, State v. Lantz (Appellant)
Jefferson County, District Court Judge Paul W. Korslund
Attorney for Appellant: James R. Mowbray & Kelly S. Breen (Nebraska Commission on Public Advocacy)
Attorney for Appellee: Jon Bruning & Stacy M. Foust (Attorney General’s Office)
Criminal Action: First Degree Sexual Assault of A Child
Action Taken by Trial Court: The district court denied appellant’s motion to suppress and, following a jury trial, appellant was convicted of three counts of first degree sexual assault of a child.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: On appeal, the appellant contends that the district court erred in denying his motion to suppress, in admitting evidence of prior sexual assaults at his jury trial, and in failing to remove a juror who overtly demonstrated sympathy and bias.
