Annotations

  • When the execution of a sentence has been suspended under this section, and the defendant has been at liberty under bail, the bond may be continued without the consent of the surety during the period of the suspension. State v. Hurley, 201 Neb. 569, 270 N.W.2d 915 (1978).

  • The subject of review of judgments in criminal cases is covered by Chapter 29, article 23, Reissue Revised Statutes of Nebraska, 1943, and amendments thereto. State v. Berry, 192 Neb. 826, 224 N.W.2d 767 (1975).
