KS high court upholds LVCO meth conviction
05/24/2022

(KAIR)--Methamphetamine and paraphernalia-related convictions in Leavenworth County District Court are upheld by the highest court in Kansas.

According to a release, the Kansas Supreme Court upheld the convictions for Orville Sieg in a unanimous decision, with the Court saying the evidence presented at Sieg’s trial was handled correctly, meaning his conviction for paraphernalia stands.

The Kansas Supreme Court additionally denied Sieg’s argument that prosecutorial comment during his 2018 Leavenworth County trial was improper.

A jury that year indicted Sieg of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia, crimes committed in 2017.

The arrest was made when, according to a release, Sieg “was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped based on suspected criminal activity.” During the stop, methamphetamine and various pieces of drug paraphernalia were found under the passenger seat when the vehicle was searched. The driver, according to the release, “indicated the narcotics and paraphernalia belonged to Sieg, and Sieg’s DNA was on a glass pipe found in the car.”
