CASE LAW UPDATES: Whether the evidence was sufficient to support defendant’s conviction of violating a harassment restraining order?
Defendant challenged her conviction for violating a harassment restraining order (HRO). Noting that upon entering the ballroom where the victim was seated, defendant made eye contact with the victim, whispered to another person while laughing and point at the victim, followed the victim out of the ballroom, and walked up to the victim and said “[y]ou f—— b—– . . . I should just kick your f—— a–,” or words to that effect, the Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that sufficient evidence supported the jury’s determination that defendant violated the harassment restraining order (HRO).
State v. Boyd, A20-0663, Mille Lacs County.
