CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the Court’s revocation of probation must be reversed on the grounds that its findings were inadequate?
Defendant was on probation. Defendant was alleged to have missed his random drug testing dates. A probation violation hearing was held. The only question the Court asked of defendant was whether he was incarcerated when he missed his random drug testing dates. The trail court then revoked defendant’s probation. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the trial court’s findings on the issues of intentional and inexcusable probation violations were not adequate. Reversed.
State v. Harper, A19-1320, Ramsey County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
