Boppre to appeal to Nebraska Supreme Court

Convicted murderer Jeff Boppre filed notice Tuesday in Scotts Bluff County District he intends to appeal to the Nebraska Supreme Court a final order denying him any post conviction relief or relief regarding his sentences.

Boppre is serving two life terms for the 1988 drug-related murders of 25 year old Richard Valdez and his pregnant girlfriend 19 year old Sharon Condon at Valdez' rural Scottsbluff home.

The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals last April denied Boppre's request for continued post-conviction relief challenges in federal court. Scotts Bluff County Attorney Doug Warner said the ruling April 6th indicated the court will not consider any petitions that ask for additional appeal opportunities on the same issues without showing some merit.

Boppre indicated in his legal filing he will act as his own counsel after Scotts Bluff County District Judge Randy Lippstreu recently rejected Boppre's request for a court appointed attorney.
