Major Victory!  82 grams of methamphetamine

Criminal Defense Lawyer, Lynne Torgerson, her client was charged with 1st degree possession of 82 grams of methamphetamine.  He/she had a lengthy criminal history, with criminal history points of 6 or more.  A conviction for same would thusly result in a very lengthy prison sentence.  A lengthy contested omnibus hearing was litigated, with several witnesses, about 10, testifying.  A squad video was also introduced as evidence, which shows the initial encounter of the vehicle containing 4 occupants, the stop seizure, the searching of the car, the arrests, the seizure of the container containing 82 grams of methamphetamine.  Ms. Torgerson raised issues of probable cause for the charge, and, Fourth Amendment suppression issues.  The Court took the matter under advisement.  The Court then issued an opinion dismissing the 1st degree controlled substance crime charge on the grounds that the State had failed to establish probable cause to believe Ms. Torgerson’s client possessed the methamphetamine.  This result has removed the threat of many years in prison for her client.

Lynne Torgerson, Esq. wins dismissal of felony aggravated robbery case

11th hour dismissal

Criminal defense lawyer, Lynne Torgerson, Esq., recently won a dismissal of a felony aggravated robbery charge out of Hennepin County.  Her client was charged with aggravated robbery, which alleges the commission of a robbery using a firearm.  The potential sentence was 86 months in prison.  The case went through the arraignment, contested omnibus hearing, and the scheduling of a jury trial.  Witnesses had to be subpoenaed and they showed up at the trial.  Identity was an issue, and at the last minute, the complaining witness got wobbly.  Thus resulting in a dismissal!  A thank you also goes out to the prosecuting attorney for her integrity.

Gun rights lawyer Lynne Torgerson wins amazing victory in trial court

Gun rights restoration win together with discharge from probation

Gun rights restoration attorney Lynne Torgerson recently achieved an amazing victory in a metro area court.  Her client was on felony probation, after being convicted of a felony.  The original plea agreement provided that if her client performed well on probation, that upon discharge from probation, the Court would restore his gun rights.  Her client did perform very well on probation.  He then brought a motion to be discharged from probation early, and, for restoration of his gun rights.  The State vehemently fought the restoration of gun rights, in opposition to what he had originally been promised.  Ultimately, the Court ordered that Ms. Torgerson’s client be discharged from probation and that his gun rights be restored.  Her client recently received his permit to purchase.  Bravo!  State v. AW.

Amendment of complaint in criminal case

September 22nd, 2017

Amendment of criminal complaint

On appeal from a judgment of conviction of first degree burglary, defendant claimed, among other things, that the trial court committed plain error by allowing the state to amend the complaint to add an additional or different offense after the state rested its case.  Defendant did not object to the amendment at trial.  The trial court allowed the state to amend the complaint so that it contained two counts of burglary with assault; the original complaint’s statement of probable cause listed two victims.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, held that there was no error because the amendment did not allege an additional or different charge.  Affirmed.

State v. Markham, A16-1458, Dakota County.
