Appeal of Conviction Nets More Prison Time Lantz Petition to Court Finds Error in Sentence

Sometimes it is better not to complain.

Ronald L. Lantz, Sr., 45, was convicted by a Jefferson County jury on Sept. 9, 2012 on three counts of first-degree sexual assault of children and sentenced to serve 30 to 50 years imprisonment.

Lantz filed an appeal of his case to the Nebraska Court of Appeals but the court didn't agree with his accusations and instead found an error in his sentence which could add 15 years to his already long prison sentence.
