CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the evidence was admissible relationship evidence?
Defendant was convicted of felony threats of violence and misdemeanor domestic assault. Defendant appealed. She argued that the evidence was not “domestic conduct” under Minn. Stat. §634.20. Noting that “domestic conduct” under the statute includes more than just domestic abuse or violation of a protective order, the Minnesota Court of Appeals held that an incident where defendant went to her son’s school, chased him through the hallways, screamed at him, and attempted to grab him in front of his peers, qualified as domestic conduct. Affirmed.
State v. Denne, A20-0736, St. Louis County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
