CSI Nebraska

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.

The JournalStar.com had this report on the sentencing. (Mike Frisch)
