CASE LAW UPDATE: Defendant’s probation was revoked after he was terminated from sex offender treatment
A condition of defendant’s probation was that he successfully complete sex offender treatment. Defendant was terminated from sex offender treatment and a probation violation was reported. The trial court found that defendant had intentionally violated his probation. The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the revocation of defendant’s probation noting that the trial court considered defendant’s explanation that he missed his first two treatment sessions because he forgot about them. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that defendant’s failure to attend sex offender treatment, and his subsequent termination from it, did not occur through no fault of his own. Affirmed.
