Human services licensing

July 14th, 2018


Relator challenged a maltreatment determination, fine, and conditional license issued by the Commissioner of Human Services, arguing that the Commissioner misinterpreted and misapplied the law in concluding that relator engaged in neglect by failing to properly supervise a child, and that the commissioner's decision was not supported by the evidence.  The determination and conditional license to provide family childcare was based on the fact that a child in relator's care was found unattended in the community.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the maltreatment by neglect finding was justified, noting that a three year old child walked over two blocks near a busy road, and, for at least 25 minutes, was without his caregiver to intervene in an unsafe situation.  Affirmed.

Defendant challenged the trial court's denial of his motion to correct unauthorized sentences for his convictions of attempted second degree murder and second degree criminal sexual conduct.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals determined that the trial court erred by construing defendant's motion to correct an unauthorized sentence as a petition for postconviction relief as it challenged the imposition of a conditional release period and consecutive sentencing, that defendant's consecutive sentences were authorized by law, and that the imposition of a conditional release term for attempted second degree murder was in error.  Affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded.

On appeal from his third degree assault conviction based on injuries he inflicted on another inmate, defendant argued, inter alia, that he trial court erred in denying defendant's request for a self defense instruction.  Defendant testified that he could not remember the incident, but video evidence showed that defendant backed the victim into a wall, lifted him off the ground, threw him to a concrete floor headfirst, and, after the victim lost consciousness, punched him 25 times in the head until he began seizing and convulsing on the floor.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals noted that a reasonable juror could not find that the use of force was reasonable, and that defendant did not demonstrate that the absence of a reasonable possibility of retreat, and thus he was not entitled to a self defense instruction.  Affirmed.
