State v. KeelAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. The Court of Appeals affirmed Defendant’s convictions. After review was granted by the Supreme Court, Defendant filed a motion to correct an illegal sentence, arguing that the district court erred in classifying his 1993 Kansas convictions for attempted aggravated robbery and aggravated robbery as person felonies, resulting in a longer sentence. The Supreme Court affirmed the convictions and sentence, holding (1) the State presented sufficient evidence to support the convictions; (2) the trial court did not err in instructing the jury on the definition of drug paraphernalia; and (3) Defendant’s 1993 Kansas convictions must be classified as person offenses based on the classification in effect for those crimes when Defendant committed his current crimes of conviction.
