CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the trial court erred in imposing lifetime terms of conditional release?
Defendant was convicted of criminal sexual conduct. On appeal, defendant argued that the trail court erred in imposing lifetime terms of conditional release because the multiple convictions were entered simultaneously in the same proceeding, and the defendant had no other criminal sexual conduct convictions. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the trial court convicted defendant of all four (4) counts simultaneously, and thus, the imposition of a lifetime conditional release term was not permissible. Reversed and remanded.
State v. Artola, A19-0950, Hennepin County.
Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
