CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the trial court did not err in ordering $4000 in restitution?
Defendant was convicted of receiving stolen property after stealing his employer’s vehicles. The trial court ordered him to pay $4,000.00 in restitution. Defendant challenged that order arguing that (1) the State failed to establish the restitution value by a preponderance of the evidence and (2) the trial court erred because it based its restitution order on an affidavit submitted by the victim and supporting hearsay documents among other errors. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the value was supported by the record and no error.
State v. Krithers, A19-1234, St. Louis County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
