CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether a lifetime term of conditional release was not authorized because defendant’s convictions were entered simultaneously and he had no prior conviction?
Defendant was convicted of 1st and 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct. The trial court sentenced defendant to a lifetime term of conditional release. Defendant appealed the lifetime term of conditional release arguing error because he did not have a prior sex offense conviction and his convictions were entered simultaneously in the same proceeding. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the trial court erred in imposing a lifetime term of conditional release because the convictions were simultaneous and he had no prior sex offense conviction. Reversed.
