Juvenile jurisdiction

Juvenile jurisdiction lapses if not reviewed in 180 days of stay of adjudication?

Defendant challenged his adjudication of delinquency and the district court’s award of restitution.  Defendant argued that because the trial court failed to review his case after 180 days, it violated Minn. Stat. §260B.198, subd. 7, and therefore lacked subject matter jurisdiction to adjudicate him delinquent.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that, because the trial court did not conduct a review hearing within the first 180 days of defendant’s stay of adjudication, it lacked jurisdiction to adjudicate him delinquent.  Reversed in part and remanded.

In re Welfare of C.A.H., A18-1821, Blue Earth County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
