CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the trial court should not have revoked defendant’s probation?
Defendant appealed the revocation of her probation. Defendant had violated the conditions of her probation by failing to abstain from using alcohol and by failing to follow the recommendations of her chemical dependency assessment. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the record supported the trial court’s finding that confinement was necessary to protect the public and that defendant was in need of correctional treatment that could most effectively be provided if she were incarcerated. Affirmed.
State v. Davis, A20-0448, Clay County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
