CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the defendant’s request for a restitution hearing was timely?
Defendant was convicted of aggravated robbery. Defendant requested a restitution hearing. The trial court denied his request for a hearing. Defendant appealed. Defendant argued that the trial court erred in denying his request on the grounds that it was untimely, because the Governor’s executive order suspending the statutory filing deadlines tolled the 30 day period in which a request must be made. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the Governor’s order suspending filing deadlines remained in effect, making his request timely. Reversed and remanded.
State v. Moreno, A20-1095, Benton County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
