Minnesota Misdemeanors: DWI, Traffic, Criminal, and Ordinance Offenses comprehensively explains and discusses the prosecution, defense, and adjudication of gross misdemeanor, misdemeanor, and petty misdemeanor—i.e., non-felony—cases in the district courts of Minnesota. Although these criminal, traffic, and ordinance violations might appear to be minor, they are of major importance to defendants, victims, attorneys, judges, probation officers, court personnel, investigating officers, witnesses, jurors, and the public whose lives are profoundly affected by them. This text provides comprehensive coverage of the procedural issues involved in pretrial, trial, and appellate practice for offenses ranging from enhanced gross misdemeanors to drunk driving to traffic violations.
Many non-felony offenses are hardly trivial. These offenses range from petty misdemeanor speeding and possession of marijuana, to misdemeanor assault and theft, to gross misdemeanor driving while impaired (DWI) and domestic abuse. For defendants, a jail sentence of up to one year, a $3,000 fine, six years of probation, extended loss of driving privileges, forfeiture of firearms and vehicles, and restitution, treatment, or other conditions of sentence may be imposed. Victims often suffer serious psychological damages, physical injuries, and property losses that can affect them even after the court case is resolved. Significant deterrent, rehabilitative, and public-safety considerations are also involved.
Also highlighted here are Minnesota’s rules of evidence and those procedures leading to the proper handling of such measures for both the prosecution and defense of the crime . Since the admission of evidence is critical to the outcome of these trials, the publication provides extensive background on the complex body of law limiting the gathering and use of evidence in criminal cases, emphasizing the constitutional requirements for arrest, search and seizure, stop and frisk, confessions and admissions, and other issues.
