Appellate Courts will begin transmitting all notices, orders, and opinions electronically.
Beginning no later than July 1, 2011, the appellate courts will send notices, orders, opinions and correspondence related to pending cases to attorneys in those cases by e-mail rather than postal mail. All attorneys with pending appellate cases who have not already registered an e-mail address should do so immediately. Unrepresented parties with pending appellate cases may also participate in this e-notification system by registering an e-mail address. Please go to http://www.mncourts.gov/?page=156 for instructions how to register your e-mail address.
DECISIONS OF THE COURT OF APPEALS
FILED MONDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2014
A13-2401 State of Minnesota, Respondent, vs. Abdirizak Mohamed Abdi, Appellant.
Hennepin County District Court, Hon. Judge Gina M. Brandt.
Because Minn. Stat. § 609.1055 (2012) gives the district court discretion to make a dispositional departure from the sentencing guidelines by placing an offender with a serious and persistent mental illness on probation with the condition that the offender successfully complete an appropriate supervised alternative-living program having a mental-health treatment component, an appellate court reviews the decision to make or not make such a departure for an abuse of discretion.
Affirmed. Judge Francis J. Connolly.
A13-2317 Harvey Ray Dupey, petitioner, Appellant, vs. State of Minnesota, Respondent.
Ramsey County District Court, Hon. Judge Robyn A. Millenacker.
A stay of adjudication on a felony offense constitutes a sentence under Minn. Stat. § 590.01, subd. 4(a)(1), which triggers the two-year time limit for postconviction petitions.
Affirmed. Judge John P. Smith.
