Criminal History Score

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the trial court miscalculated defendant’s criminal history score?    

Defendant was convicted of fifth degree possession of methamphetamine.  After a probation violation, his probation was revoked.  On appeal, defendant argued that the trial court:  (1) miscalculated his criminal history score; (2) erroneously added a conditional release term to his sentence; (3) abused its discretion in denying his request for a downward dispositional departure; and (4) abused its discretion by revoking his probation.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the trial erred in calculating defendant’s criminal history score and in adding a conditional release term, but upheld the probation revocation and denial of a downward departure.

State v. Ames, A20-0835, A20-0837, Crow Wing County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
