CASE LAW: Whether the trial court did not err in revoking defendant’s probation?
In the direct appeal from an order revoking his probation for his felony violation of a harassment restraining order, defendant argued that the trial court abused its discretion in revoking his probation by determining the need for his confinement outweighed the policies favoring his continued probation. Noting that, less than a week after being placed on probation, defendant was charged with assaulting his mother and had methamphetamine in his system, the Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that confinement was necessary to protect the public from further criminal activity. Affirmed.
