CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether defendant’s two convictions of failing to register as a predatory offender violated double jeopardy?    

Defendant was convicted and sentenced for two convictions of failing to register as a predatory offender.  Defendant appealed.  On appeal, defendant argued that being convicted and sentenced on two convictions of failing to register as a predatory offender violated double jeopardy.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that defendant’s two convictions and sentences did not violate double jeopardy because he committed two separate and distinct offenses when he failed to register on two separate occasions in two sequential months.

State v. Larson, A21-0220, Carlton County.

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