CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the trial court erred in revoking defendant’s probation before making proper findings?    

This appeal followed the trial court’s revocation of defendant’s probation and execution of his stayed sentence for felony driving while impaired.  Noting that the trial court made the required findings on the Austin factors only after it ordered the revocation, the Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the trial court failed to make the required findings prior to the revocation and abused its discretion by basing the revocation on an erroneous factual finding.  Reversed and remanded.

State v. O’Brien, A21-1266, Hennepin County.

Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
