Nebraska Supreme Court Sets License Revocation Sentences

The Nebraska Supreme Court says state courts can order that sentences revoking a driver's license can be served back to back.

The decision came Friday in the case of a Lincoln man found guilty in 2011 of driving while his license had been revoked through 2018. State law says the mandatory sentence for driving under a revoked license is a 15-year revocation.

The court ordered Joe Policky's second license revocation to begin in 2018, when his first 15-year revocation is set to end. But Policky argued that the wording of the law meant that his second 15-year revocation should have begun in 2011, when he was sentenced.

The Nebraska Supreme Court disagreed, saying it is within a trial court's discretion to order sentences to be served one after the other.
