Dismissal of Felony Domestic Assault Charges, Enhanced Based upon Priors

Minneapolis Criminal Lawyer Thomas C. Gallagher reviewed the client’s prior conviction record and compared it to the statutory definition of “qualified domestic violence-related offense convictions” in Minn. Stat. §609.02, Subd. 16.  The client had been convicted of Violation of a DANCO, under Minn. Stat. §518.0 1, subd. 22(d), but that offense was not one of those listed under the statutory definition of “qualified domestic violence-related offense convictions.”  The prosecutor had made a mistake and Gallagher caught it.
