Case Summary

S-17-0139 State v. Curtis H. Lavalleur (Appellant)

Lancaster County, Judge Andrew Jacobsen

Attorneys: Kimberly A. Klein (Attorney General’s Office) --- Webb E. Bancroft, John C. Jorgensen (Public Defender’s Office for Appellant) and Katherine Lesiak (Senior Certified Law Student)

Criminal: Plea in bar; Attempted first degree sexual assault

Proceedings below: This case was previously before this Court. See State v. Lavalleur, 289 Neb. 102 (2014) (remanded for new trial); State v. Lavalleur, 292 Neb. 424 (2016) (remanded with directions). After remand, the State filed a second amended information charging Appellant with attempted first degree sexual assault. Appellant filed a plea in bar raising Double Jeopardy. After a hearing, the court found the second amended information did not violate Appellant’s right not to be subject to double jeopardy and denied the plea in bar.

Issues: The District Court erred in denying Appellant's Plea in Bar and permitting the introduction of evidence to prove criminal allegations previously determined by the jury in violation of Appellant's right to be free from Double Jeopardy under the Fifth Amendment of the

U.S. Constitution and Article I, § l2 of the Nebraska State Constitution. U.S. Const. amend. V; Neb. Const. Art. I, § 12.
