State v. QuestedAnnotate this Case
Pursuant to a plea agreement, Defendant pleaded guilty in Saline County District Court to nonresidential burglary, possession of stolen marijuana, and possession of stolen property. The district court judge ordered that Defendant’s sentences in Saline County run consecutive to a sentence Defendant received for a Dickinson County conviction that was imposed the previous day. After Defendant’s probation was revoked, Defendant filed a motion to correct an illegal sentence, arguing that the sentencing judge lacked the statutory authority to make his Saline County sentences run consecutive to his Dickinson County sentence. The judge denied Defendant’s motion. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that, in light of State v. Chronister, Defendant’s sentences conformed to Kansas law and were not illegal.
