CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether relationship evidence was admissible in domestic assault case?    

Defendant challenged his conviction for 5th degree domestic assault.  He argued that the trial court abused its discretion by admitting verbal relationship evidence and evidence of two prior instances of domestic abuse under Minn. Stat. §634.20.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that, to be admissible as domestic conduct evidence, it was not required that the speech be such that it would on its own violate a criminal statute.  Affirmed.

State v . Apfelbacher, A21-0565, Chippewa County.

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