LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ The Nebraska Court of Appeals has upheld the rejection of a sex offender's request for post-conviction relief.
Roger Schmidt Sr. was found guilty in 2007 of sexually assaulting three children under the age of 10 and sentenced 38 to 45 years in prison.
The 69-year-old Schmidt appealed after a Jefferson County District Court judge rejected his motion for post-conviction relief in 2011. Post-conviction relief motions are filed after all other appeals have been exhausted. Schmidt argued in his appeal that the lower court should have held an evidentiary hearing on his motion. But the Nebraska Court of Appeals said Tuesday that the evidence showed Schmidt is not entitled to relief.
