The Nebraska Supreme Court has affirmed a felony tampering with evidence conviction.
The defendant was the supervisor of the Crime Scene Investigation Division (CSI") of the Douglas County sheriff's office. The tampering involved falsified DNA evidence in a murder case.
The court found that prior acts evidence was properly admitted.
The court also rejected the argument that the trial was was biased and improperly denied a motion to recuse.
