Case Summary

A-20-0722, State of Nebraska (appellee) v. Ronda K. Thompson (appellant)

Gage County, District Court, Judge Rick A. Schreiner

Attorney for Appellant: Lee Timan

Attorney for Appellee: Siobhan E. Duffy

Criminal Action: Admission of evidence; sufficiency of evidence

Action Taken by Trial Court:  Thompson was subjected to a traffic stop due to an expired registration; the encounter resulted in the discovery of a baggie of methamphetamine. Thompson claimed there was an unlawful extension of the traffic stop and filed a motion to suppress the evidence seized as a result. The district court denied Thompson’s motion and subsequently convicted Thompson of one count of possession of methamphetamine.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Thompson claims the district court erred in overruling her motion to suppress the evidence discovered through the traffic stop and admitting the same evidence over her objection at trial. Thompson further contends the evidence presented at trial was insufficient to sustain her conviction.
