Adjudication of felony in juvenile delinquency case
Juvenile defendant in juvenile case was adjudicated delinquent in his felony level case. The trial court then continued his stay of adjudication on the gross misdemeanor case in his juvenile case. The juvenile defendant appealed these sentence dispositions. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that a trial court may exercise its broad discretion to adjudicate a child as a delinquent in a felony level delinquency case while continuing a stay of adjudication in a gross misdemeanor case; a trial court is not required to adjudicate only the least severe delinquency offense. Affirmed.
In re Welfare of C.A.R., A19-1022, Fillmore County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
