            Patrick Booker appeals his conviction for third-degree sexual assault and the district court’s amended sentence.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the verdict was supported by sufficient evidence and the district court did not err in evidentiary rulings or juror challenges, we affirm the conviction.  But because the district court did not have jurisdiction to amend Booker’s sentence, we vacate the sentencing amendment.
