CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the evidence was sufficient to sustain defendant’s conviction of fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle?
Defendant was convicted of fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle. He appealed. On appeal, defendant argued that the evidence was insufficient to uphold the jury’s verdict. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the officer’s identification of defendant, and testimony that he saw the vehicle speeding away from the office in town after he turned on his lights and siren, running a stop sign, and passing traffic in a turn lane was sufficient to support the conviction. Affirmed.
State v. Hondl, A20-0738, Steele County.
Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
