Probation Violation Lawyer

Whether the trial court properly revoked defendant’s probation for 10 probation violations?    

Defendant violated his probation 10 times in 6 years.  The trial court revoked his probation and imposed a 36 month prison sentence.  Defendant appealed.  Noting that the defendant had committed 10 probation violations in 6 years, the Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the need for confinement outweighed the policies favoring probation, and that the trial court did not abuse its discretion by revoking defendant’s probation and executing his sentence.

State v. Thomas, A21-0188, Kandiyohi County.

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