MN Conditional Release, Supervised Release

Minnesota case law summary by Attorney Richard Clem: conditional release, supervised release.

Charles Patrick Maiers, v. Tom Roy, Commissioner of Corrections. MN conditional release, supervised release

In this habeas corpus appeal from Washington County, the Minnesota Court of Appeals held: Minn. Stat. 169A.276 requires the sentencing court to provide "that after the person has been released from prison the commissioner shall place the person on conditional release for five years." Minn. Stat. 244.05, subd. 1b(a) requires that every inmate "shall serve a supervised release term upon completion of the inmate’s term of imprisonment." Taken together, the effect of these provisions is that the the five-year term of conditional release is concurrent to the term of supervised release.

No A13-1956 (Minn. Ct. App. June 2, 2014).

Please see the original opinion for the court's exact language.
