Petition for post conviction relief regarding self defense
Defendant brought a petition for post conviction relief from his conviction of 3rd degree assault. Defendant argued that the State failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he did not act in self defense. Noting that direct evidence showed that defendant was the aggressor and provocateur, the Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the evidence was sufficient to support the State's proof beyond a reasonable doubt that defendant did not act in self defense.
State v. Limper, A19-0770, Polk County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
