PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. – The former chief crime scene investigator of Nebraska's most populous county was sentenced to up to four years in prison Tuesday for planting blood evidence in a 2006 murder investigation.

David Kofoed, 53, was sentenced to between 20 months and 4 years in prison for tampering with evidence in a Cass County case in which two men were wrongly charged in a double murder. The men spent several months in jail before they were cleared.

"Nothing should undermine the confidence in the system," Cass County District Judge Randall Rehmeier said after reading excerpts from letters written by the two men.

Rehmeier, who could have sentenced Kofoed to probation or a maximum of five years in prison, said the seriousness of the crime merited prison.

"I think there is some poetic justice to the sentence," special prosecutor Clarence Mock said, noting that Kofoed must spend 10 months in prison — roughly the combined total that Matthew Livers and Nicholas Sampson spent behind bars — before he is eligible for parole.

Don't these guys watch those CSI t.v. shows?
