Whether the probation of the juvenile was properly revoked?
Defendant juvenile was adjudicated delinquent of 1st degree aggravated robbery. The trial court revoked her extended jurisdiction juvenile status probation and executed her sentence. Defendant appealed, arguing that the trial court abused its discretion and violated equal protection. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that because defendant’s probation violations were intentional or inexcusable, and that the need for confinement outweighed the policies favoring probation, the trial court did not abuse its discretion when it revoked her extended jurisdiction juvenile status and executed the stayed sentence, and the defendant failed to support her equal protection argument. Affirmed.
State v. M.N.M., A21-0291, Hennepin County.
