Probation violation

Questions posed by judge during probation violation hearing

Defendant challenged the revocation of his probation.  Defendant contended that the trial court deprived him of due process of law by conducting an independent investigation by questioning his sobriety, ordering a chemical test, and reporting its results.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the trial court did not err by questioning defendant, ordering him to submit to chemical testing, and considering his admitted positive test result among other facts justifying revocation of probation.  Affirmed.

State v. Foote, A19-0838, Dakota County.

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