 14.22  uniform workload standards and level of 
 14.23  risk of individual offenders, and to 
 14.24  make ongoing outcome data available on 
 14.25  cases.  
 14.26  The study must recommend to the

 14.28  statewide, uniform workload system and 
 14.29  definitions of levels of risk; a

 14.31  using the uniform definitions of 
 14.32  workload and risk and a timeline for 
 14.33  reporting data; and a new mechanism or 
 14.34  formula for aid distribution based on 
 14.35  the data, that could be operational by 
 14.36  July 1, 1996. 
 14.37  In fiscal year 1997, the commissioner 
 14.38  shall distribute money appropriated for 
 14.39  state and county probation officer

 14.55  juveniles and committed to the 
 14.56  commissioner after July 1, 1995, and 
 14.57  confined in a state correctional 
 14.58  facility.  Provided, however, that the 
 14.59  amount charged a county for the costs 
 14.60  of confinement shall not exceed the

 22.15  court may enter an adjudication of guilt and proceed as 
 22.16  otherwise provided.  The court may, in its discretion, dismiss 
 22.17  the proceedings against the person and discharge the person from 
 22.18  probation before the expiration of the maximum period prescribed 
 22.19  for the person's probation.  If during the period of probation 
 22.20  the person does not violate any of the conditions of the 
 22.21  probation, then upon expiration of the period the court shall 
 22.22  discharge the person and dismiss the proceedings against that 
 22.23  person.  Discharge and dismissal under this subdivision shall be 
 22.24  without court adjudication of guilt, but a not public record of 
 22.25  it shall be retained by the department of public safety for the 
 22.26  purpose of use by the courts in determining the merits of 
 22.27  subsequent proceedings against the person.  The not public 
 22.28  record may also be opened only upon court order for purposes of 
 22.29  a criminal investigation, prosecution, or sentencing.  Upon 
 22.30  request by law enforcement, prosecution, or corrections 
 22.31  authorities, the department shall notify the requesting party of 
 22.32  the existence of the not public record and the right to seek a 
 22.33  court order to open it pursuant to this section.  The court 
 22.34  shall forward a record of any discharge and dismissal under this 
 22.35  subdivision to the department of public safety who shall make 
 22.36  and maintain the not public record of it as provided under this 
 23.1   subdivision.  The discharge or dismissal shall not be deemed a 
 23.2   conviction for purposes of disqualifications or disabilities 
 23.3   imposed by law upon conviction of a crime or for any other 
 23.4   purpose. 
 23.5      For purposes of this subdivision, "not public" has the 
 23.6   meaning given in section 13.02, subdivision 8a.  
 23.7      Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 299A.38,

 23.10  and heads of local law enforcement agencies who buy vests for 
 23.11  the use of peace officer employees may apply to the commissioner 
 23.12  for reimbursement of funds spent to buy vests.  On approving an 
 23.13  application for reimbursement, the commissioner shall pay the 
 23.14  applicant an amount equal to the lesser of one-third one-half of 
 23.15  the vest's purchase price or $165 $300.  The political 
 23.16  subdivision that employs the peace officer shall pay at least 
 23.17  the lesser of one-third one-half of the vest's purchase price or 
 23.18  $165 $300.  The political subdivision may not deduct or pay its 
 23.19  share of the vest's cost from any clothing, maintenance, or 
 23.20  similar allowance otherwise provided to the peace officer by the 
 23.21  law enforcement agency.

 26.8   pending, except for postdissolution property distribution 
 26.9   matters and postdissolution visitation matters.  This shall not 
 26.10  restrict the present authority of the court or departments of 
 26.11  the court from accepting for resolution a dispute arising under 
 26.12  chapters 518, 518A, and 518C 518B, or from referring disputes

 26.14     Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.101, 
 26.15  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 26.16     Subdivision 1.  [SURCHARGES AND ASSESSMENTS.] (a) When a 
 26.17  court sentences a person convicted of a felony, gross 
 26.18  misdemeanor, or misdemeanor, other than a petty misdemeanor such 
 26.19  as a traffic or parking violation, and if the sentence does not 
 26.20  include payment of a fine, the court shall impose an assessment 
 26.21  of not less than $25 nor more than $50.  If the sentence for the 
 26.22  felony, gross misdemeanor, or misdemeanor includes payment of a 
 26.23  fine of any amount, including a fine of less than $100, the 
 26.24  court shall impose a surcharge on the fine of 20 percent of the 
 26.25  fine.  This section applies whether or not the person is 
 26.26  sentenced to imprisonment and when the sentence is suspended.  
 26.27     (b) In addition to the assessments in paragraph (a), the 
 26.28  court shall assess the following surcharges a surcharge of $20 
 26.29  after a person is convicted: 
 26.30     (1) for a person charged with a felony, $25; 
 26.31     (2) for a person charged with a gross misdemeanor, $15; 
 26.32     (3) for a person charged with a misdemeanor other than a 
 26.33  traffic, parking, or local ordinance violation, $10; and 
 26.34     (4) for a person charged with a local ordinance violation 
 26.35  other than a parking or traffic violation, $5 of a violation of 
 26.36  state law or local ordinance, other than a traffic or parking 
 27.1   violation.  
 27.2   The surcharge must be assessed for the original charge, whether 
 27.3   or not it is subsequently reduced.  A person charged on more 
 27.4   than one count may be assessed only one surcharge under this 
 27.5   paragraph, but must be assessed for the most serious offense.  
 27.6   This paragraph applies whether or not the person is sentenced to 
 27.7   imprisonment and when the sentence is suspended. 
 27.8      (c) If the court fails to impose an assessment required by 
 27.9   paragraph (a), the court administrator shall correct the record 
 27.10  to show imposition of an assessment of $25 if the sentence does 
 27.11  not include payment of a fine, or if the sentence includes a 
 27.12  fine, to show an imposition of a surcharge of ten percent of the 
 27.13  fine.  If the court fails to impose an assessment required by 
 27.14  paragraph (b), the court administrator shall correct the record 
 27.15  to show imposition of the assessment described in paragraph (b). 
 27.16     (d) Except for assessments and surcharges imposed on 
 27.17  persons convicted of violations described in section 97A.065, 
 27.18  subdivision 2, the court shall collect and forward to the 
 27.19  commissioner of finance the total amount of the assessments or 
 27.20  surcharges and the commissioner shall credit all money so 
 27.21  forwarded to the general fund. 
 27.22     (e) If the convicted person is sentenced to imprisonment, 
 27.23  the chief executive officer of the correctional facility in 
 27.24  which the convicted person is incarcerated may collect the 
 27.25  assessment or surcharge from any earnings the inmate accrues for 
 27.26  work performed in the correctional facility and forward the 
 27.27  amount to the commissioner of finance, indicating the part that 
 27.28  was imposed for violations described in section 97A.065, 
 27.29  subdivision 2, which must be credited to the game and fish fund. 
 27.30     Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.101, 
 27.31  subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
 27.32     Subd. 2.  [MINIMUM FINES.] Notwithstanding any other law:  
 27.33     (1), when a court sentences a person convicted of violating 
 27.34  section 609.221, 609.222, 609.223, 609.2231, 609.224, 609.267, 
 27.35  or 609.2671, 609.2672, 609.342, 609.343, 609.344, or 609.345, it 
 27.36  must impose a fine of not less than $500 30 percent of the 
 28.1   maximum fine authorized by law nor more than the maximum fine 
 28.2   authorized by law; 
 28.3      (2) when a court sentences a person convicted of violating 
 28.4   section 609.222, 609.223, 609.2671, 609.343, 609.344, or 
 28.5   609.345, it must impose a fine of not less than $300 nor more 
 28.6   than the maximum fine authorized by law; and 
 28.7      (3) when a court sentences a person convicted of violating 
 28.8   section 609.2231, 609.224, or 609.2672, it must impose a fine of 
 28.9   not less than $100 nor more than the maximum fine authorized by 
 28.10  law.  
 28.11     The court shall collect the portion of the fine mandated by 
 28.12  this subdivision and forward 70 percent of it to a local victim 
 28.13  assistance program that provides services locally in the county 
 28.14  in which the crime was committed.  The court shall forward the 
 28.15  remaining 30 percent to the commissioner of finance to be 
 28.16  credited to the general fund.  If more than one victim 
 28.17  assistance program serves the county in which the crime was 
 28.18  committed, the court may designate on a case-by-case basis which 
 28.19  program will receive the fine proceeds, giving consideration to 
 28.20  the nature of the crime committed, the types of victims served 
 28.21  by the program, and the funding needs of the program.  If no 
 28.22  victim assistance program serves that county, the court shall 
 28.23  forward 100 percent of the fine proceeds to the commissioner of 
 28.24  finance to be credited to the general fund.  Fine proceeds 
 28.25  received by a local victim assistance program must be used to 
 28.26  provide direct services to crime victims.  
 28.27     The minimum fine required by this subdivision is in 
 28.28  addition to the surcharge or assessment required by subdivision 
 28.29  1 and is in addition to any sentence of imprisonment or 
 28.30  restitution imposed or ordered by the court.

 28.32  means victim witness programs within county attorney offices or 
 28.33  any of the following programs:  crime victim crisis centers, 
 28.34  victim-witness programs, battered women shelters and nonshelter 
 28.35  programs, and sexual assault programs. 
 28.36     Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.101, 
 29.1   subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 29.2      Subd. 3.  [CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE OFFENSES; MINIMUM FINES.] 
 29.3   (a) Notwithstanding any other law, when a court sentences a 
 29.4   person convicted of a controlled substance crime under sections 
 29.5   152.021 to 152.025, it must impose a fine of not less than 20 30 
 29.6   percent of the maximum fine authorized by law nor more than the 
 29.7   maximum fine authorized by law. 
 29.8      (b) The minimum fine required by this subdivision is in 
 29.9   addition to the surcharge or assessment required by subdivision 
 29.10  1 and is in addition to any sentence of imprisonment or 
 29.11  restitution imposed or ordered by the court. 
 29.12     (c) The court shall collect the fine mandated by this 
 29.13  subdivision and forward 70 percent of it to a local drug abuse 
 29.14  prevention program existing or being implemented in the county 
 29.15  in which the crime was committed.  The court shall forward the 
 29.16  remaining 30 percent to the state treasurer to be credited to 
 29.17  the general fund.  If more than one drug abuse prevention 
 29.18  program serves the county in which the crime was committed, the 
 29.19  court may designate on a case-by-case basis which program will 
 29.20  receive the fine proceeds, giving consideration to the community 
 29.21  in which the crime was committed, the funding needs of the 
 29.22  program, the number of peace officers in each community 
 29.23  certified to teach the program, and the number of children 
 29.24  served by the program in each community.  If no drug abuse 
 29.25  prevention program serves communities in that county, the court 
 29.26  shall forward 100 percent of the fine proceeds to the state 
 29.27  treasurer to be credited to the general fund.  
 29.28     (d) The minimum fines required by this subdivision shall be 
 29.29  collected as are other fines.  Fine proceeds received by a local 
 29.30  drug abuse prevention program must be used to support that 
 29.31  program, and may be used for salaries of peace officers 
 29.32  certified to teach the program.  The drug abuse resistance 
 29.33  education program must report receipt and use of money generated 
 29.34  under this subdivision as prescribed by the drug abuse 
 29.35  resistance education advisory council. 
 29.36     (e) As used in this subdivision, "drug abuse prevention 
 30.1   program" and "program" include: 
 30.2      (1) the drug abuse resistance education program described 
 30.3   in sections 299A.33 and 299A.331; and 
 30.4      (2) any similar drug abuse education and prevention program 
 30.5   that includes the following components: 
 30.6      (A) instruction for students enrolled in kindergarten 
 30.7   through grade six that is designed to teach students to 
 30.8   recognize and resist pressures to experiment with controlled 
 30.9   substances and alcohol; 
 30.10     (B) provisions for parental involvement; 
 30.11     (C) classroom instruction by uniformed law enforcement 
 30.12  personnel; 
 30.13     (D) the use of positive student leaders to influence 
 30.14  younger students not to use drugs; and 
 30.15     (E) an emphasis on activity-oriented techniques designed to 
 30.16  encourage student-generated responses to problem-solving 
 30.17  situations. 
 30.18     Sec. 11.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.135, is 
 30.19  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 30.20     Subd. 8.  [FINE AND SURCHARGE COLLECTION.] A defendant's 
 30.21  obligation to pay court-ordered fines, surcharges, court costs, 
 30.22  and fees shall survive for a period of six years from the date 
 30.23  of the expiration of the defendant's stayed sentence for the 
 30.24  offense for which the fines, surcharges, court costs, and fees 
 30.25  were imposed, or six years from the imposition or due date of 
 30.26  the fines, surcharges, court costs, and fees, whichever is 
 30.27  later.  Nothing in this subdivision extends the period of a 
 30.28  defendant's stay of sentence imposition or execution. 
 30.29     Sec. 12.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.1352, is 
 30.30  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 30.31     Subd. 1a.  [STATUTORY MAXIMUMS LENGTHENED.] If the 
 30.32  factfinder determines, at the time of the trial or the guilty 
 30.33  plea, that a predatory offense was motivated by, committed in 
 30.34  the course of, or committed in furtherance of sexual contact or 
 30.35  penetration, as defined in section 609.341, and the court is 
 30.36  imposing a sentence under subdivision 1, the statutory maximum 
 31.1   imprisonment penalty for the offense is 40 years, 
 31.2   notwithstanding the statutory maximum imprisonment penalty 
 31.3   otherwise provided for the offense. 
 31.4      Sec. 13.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.1352, 
 31.5   subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 31.6      Subd. 3.  [DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY.] The court shall base 
 31.7   its finding that the offender is a danger to public safety on 
 31.8   either any of the following factors: 
 31.9      (1) the crime involved an aggravating factor that would 
 31.10  justify a durational departure from the presumptive sentence 
 31.11  under the sentencing guidelines; or 
 31.12     (2) the offender previously committed or attempted to 
 31.13  commit a predatory crime or a violation of section 609.224, 
 31.14  including: 
 31.15     (i) an offense committed as a juvenile that would have been 
 31.16  a predatory crime or a violation of section 609.224 if committed 
 31.17  by an adult; or 
 31.18     (ii) a violation or attempted violation of a similar law of 
 31.19  any other state or the United States; or 
 31.20     (3) the offender planned or prepared for the crime prior to 
 31.21  its commission. 
 31.22     Sec. 14.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.1352, 
 31.23  subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
 31.24     Subd. 5.  [CONDITIONAL RELEASE.] At the time of sentencing 
 31.25  under subdivision 1, the court shall provide that after the 
 31.26  offender has completed the sentence imposed, less any good time 
 31.27  earned by an offender whose crime was committed before August 1, 
 31.28  1993, the commissioner of corrections shall place the offender 
 31.29  on conditional release for the remainder of the statutory 
 31.30  maximum period or for ten years, whichever is longer. 
 31.31     The conditions of release may include successful completion 
 31.32  of treatment and aftercare in a program approved by the 
 31.33  commissioner, satisfaction of the release conditions specified 
 31.34  in section 244.05, subdivision 6, and any other conditions the 
 31.35  commissioner considers appropriate.  Before the offender is 
 31.36  released, the commissioner shall notify the sentencing court, 
 32.1   the prosecutor in the jurisdiction where the offender was 
 32.2   sentenced and the victim of the offender's crime, where 
 32.3   available, of the terms of the offender's conditional release.  
 32.4   If the offender fails to meet any condition of release, the 
 32.5   commissioner may revoke the offender's conditional release and 
 32.6   order that the offender serve all or a part of the remaining

 41.22  that might be relevant to the applicant's eligibility for a 
 41.23  public defender.  The state public defender shall furnish 
 41.24  appropriate forms for the financial statements.  The forms must 
 41.25  contain conspicuous notice of the applicant's continuing duty to 
 41.26  disclose to the court changes in the applicant's financial 
 41.27  circumstances.  The information contained in the statement shall 
 41.28  be confidential and for the exclusive use of the court and the 
 41.29  public defender appointed by the court to represent the 
 41.30  applicant except for any prosecution under section 609.48.  A 
 41.31  refusal to execute the financial statement or produce financial 
 41.32  records constitutes a waiver of the right to the appointment of 
 41.33  a public defender.

 41.35  subdivision 3, is amended to read:

 42.2   Payments in excess of $180,000 shall be deposited in the general 
 42.3   fund and credited to a separate account with the board of public 
 42.4   defense.  The amount credited to this account is appropriated to 
 42.5   the board of public defense to reimburse the costs of attorneys 
 42.6   providing part-time public defense services. 
 42.7      The balance of this account does not cancel but is 
 42.8   available until expended.  Expenditures by the board from this 
 42.9   account for each judicial district public defense office must be 
 42.10  based on the amount of the payments received by the state from 
 42.11  the courts in each judicial district. 
 42.12     Sec. 26.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 611.20, is

 42.15  employed when a public defender is appointed, or who becomes 
 42.16  employed while represented by a public defender, shall reimburse 
 42.17  the state for the cost of the public defender.  The court may 
 42.18  accept partial reimbursement from the defendant if the 
 42.19  defendant's financial circumstances warrant a reduced 
 42.20  reimbursement schedule.  The court may consider the guidelines 
 42.21  in subdivision 6 in determining a defendant's reimbursement 
 42.22  schedule.  If a defendant does not agree to make payments, the 
 42.23  court may order the defendant's employer to withhold a 
 42.24  percentage of the defendant's income to be turned over to the 
 42.25  court.  The percentage to be withheld may be determined under 
 42.26  subdivision 6. 
 42.27     Sec. 27.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 611.20, is 
 42.28  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 42.29     Subd. 5.  [REIMBURSEMENT RATE.] Legal fees required to be 
 42.30  reimbursed under subdivision 4, shall be determined by 
 42.31  multiplying the total number of hours worked on the case by a 
 42.32  public defender by $30 per hour.  The public defender assigned 
 42.33  to the defendant's case shall provide to the court, upon the 
 42.34  court's request, a written statement containing the total number 
 42.35  of hours worked on the defendant's case up to the time of the 
 42.36  request. 
 43.1      Sec. 28.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 611.20, is 
 43.2   amended by adding a subdivision to read:

 43.6   defendant's net income by the percent indicated by the following 
 43.7   guidelines: 
 43.8      
 43.9   Net Income Per              Number of Dependents 
 43.10  Month of Defendant          Not Including Defendant

 43.15                              by the court.

 43.21     "Net income" shall have the meaning given it in section 
 43.22  518.551, subdivision 5. 
 43.23     Sec. 29.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 611.20, is 
 43.24  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 43.25     Subd. 7.  [INCOME WITHHOLDING.] (a) Whenever an obligation 
 43.26  for reimbursement of public defender costs is ordered by a court 
 43.27  under this section, the amount of reimbursement as determined by 
 43.28  court order must be withheld from the income of the person 
 43.29  obligated to pay.  The court shall serve a copy of the 
 43.30  reimbursement order on the defendant's employer.  
 43.31  Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the order is binding on 
 43.32  the employer when served.  Withholding must begin no later than 
 43.33  the first pay period that occurs after 14 days following the 
 43.34  date of the notice.  The employer shall withhold from the income 
 43.35  payable to the defendant the amount specified in the order and 
 43.36  shall remit, within ten days of the date the defendant is paid 
 44.1   the remainder of the income, the amounts withheld to the court. 
 44.2      (b) An employer shall not discharge, or refuse to hire, or 
 44.3   otherwise discipline an employee as a result of a wage or salary 
 44.4   withholding authorized by this section.  The employer shall be 
 44.5   liable to the court for any amounts required to be withheld.  An 
 44.6   employer that fails to withhold or transfer funds in accordance 
 44.7   with this section is also liable for interest on the funds at 
 44.8   the rate applicable to judgments under section 549.09, computed 
 44.9   from the date the funds were required to be withheld.  An 
 44.10  employer that has failed to comply with the requirements of this 
 44.11  section is subject to contempt of court. 
 44.12     (c) Amounts withheld under this section do not supersede or 
 44.13  have priority over amounts withheld pursuant to other sections 
 44.14  of law.

 44.16  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 44.17     Subdivision 1.  Any person who is represented by a public 
 44.18  defender or appointive counsel shall, if financially able to 
 44.19  pay, reimburse the governmental unit chargeable with the 
 44.20  compensation of such public defender or appointive counsel for 
 44.21  the actual costs to the governmental unit in providing the 
 44.22  services of the public defender or appointive counsel.  The 
 44.23  court in hearing such matter shall ascertain the amount of such 
 44.24  costs to be charged to the defendant and shall direct 
 44.25  reimbursement over a period of not to exceed six months, unless 
 44.26  the court for good cause shown shall extend the period of 
 44.27  reimbursement.  If a term of probation is imposed as a part of a 
 44.28  sentence, reimbursement of costs as required by this subdivision 
 44.29  may chapter must not be made a condition of probation.  
 44.30  Reimbursement of costs as required by this chapter is a civil 
 44.31  obligation and must not be made a condition of a criminal 
 44.32  sentence.

 46.23     Sec. 34.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 626.861, 
 46.24  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 46.25     Subdivision 1.  [LEVY OF ASSESSMENT.] There is levied a

 47.9   of the penalty assessment unless the offender is ordered to pay 
 47.10  the suspended portion of the fine.  Suspension of an entire fine 
 47.11  shall be treated as a stay of execution for purposes of 
 47.12  computing the amount of the penalty assessment.

 51.20  nonattendance at school, make complaints, serve notice and 
 51.21  process, and attend to the enforcement of all laws and district

 51.24  nonattendance of any child required to attend school the officer 
 51.25  shall immediately notify the person having control of such child 
 51.26  to forthwith send to and keep the child in school.  The

 54.23  administration, under rules promulgated by the school board, 
 54.24  prohibiting a pupil from attending school for a period of no 
 54.25  more than five ten school days.  If a suspension is longer than 
 54.26  five days, the suspending administrator must provide the 
 54.27  superintendent with a reason for the longer suspension.  This 
 54.28  definition does not apply to dismissal from school for one 
 54.29  school day or less.  Each suspension action shall include a 
 54.30  readmission plan.  The readmission plan shall include, where

 54.34  of conduct, or incident of misconduct, except where the pupil 
 54.35  will create an immediate and substantial danger to surrounding 
 54.36  persons or property.  In no event shall suspension exceed 15 
 55.1   school days, provided that an alternative program shall be 
 55.2   implemented to the extent that suspension exceeds five days. 
 55.3      Sec. 10.  [127.282] [EXPULSION FOR POSSESSION OF FIREARM.]

 55.5   subdivision 5, a school board must expel for a period of at 
 55.6   least one year a pupil who is determined to have brought a

 55.10  Code, title 18, section 921. 
 55.11     (b) Notwithstanding chapter 13, a student's expulsion or 
 55.12  withdrawal or transfer from a school after an expulsion action 
 55.13  is initiated against the student for a weapons violation under 
 55.14  paragraph (a) may be disclosed by the school district initiating 
 55.15  the expulsion proceeding.  Unless the information is otherwise 
 55.16  public, the disclosure may be made only to another school 
 55.17  district in connection with the possible admission of the 
 55.18  student to the other district.

 55.20     Subdivision 1.  [POLICY.] It is the policy of the state of 
 55.21  Minnesota that:  
 55.22     "School lockers are the property of the school district.  
 55.23  At no time does the school district relinquish its exclusive 
 55.24  control of lockers provided for the convenience of students.  
 55.25  Inspection of the interior of lockers may be conducted by school 
 55.26  authorities for any reason at any time, without notice, without 
 55.27  student consent, and without a search warrant.  The personal 
 55.28  possessions of students within a school locker may be searched 
 55.29  only when school authorities have a reasonable suspicion that 
 55.30  the search will uncover evidence of a violation of law or school 
 55.31  rules.  As soon as practicable after the search of a student's 
 55.32  personal possessions, the school authorities must provide notice 
 55.33  of the search to students whose lockers were searched unless 
 55.34  disclosure would impede an ongoing investigation by police or 
 55.35  school officials." 
 55.36     Subd. 2.  [DISSEMINATION.] The locker policy must be 
 56.1   disseminated to parents and students in the way that other 
 56.2   policies of general application to students are disseminated.  A 
 56.3   copy of the policy must be provided to a student the first time 
 56.4   after the policy is effective that the student is given the use 
 56.5   of a locker. 
 56.6      Sec. 12.  [127.48] [POLICY TO REFER FIREARMS POSSESSOR.] 
 56.7      Each school board must have a policy requiring the 
 56.8   appropriate school official to, as soon as practicable, refer to 
 56.9   the criminal justice or juvenile delinquency system, as 
 56.10  appropriate, any pupil who brings a firearm to school unlawfully.
 56.11     Sec. 13.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 171.04, 
 56.12  subdivision 1, is amended to read:

 56.14  shall not issue a driver's license hereunder: 
 56.15     (1) To any person who is under the age of 16 years; to any 
 56.16  person under 18 years unless such person shall have successfully 
 56.17  completed a course in driver education, including both classroom 
 56.18  and behind-the-wheel instruction, approved by the state board of 
 56.19  education for courses offered through the public schools, or, in 
 56.20  the case of a course offered by a private, commercial driver 
 56.21  education school or institute, by the department of public 
 56.22  safety; except when such person has completed a course of driver 
 56.23  education in another state or has a previously issued valid 
 56.24  license from another state or country; nor to any person under 
 56.25  18 years unless the application of license is approved by either 
 56.26  parent when both reside in the same household as the minor 
 56.27  applicant, otherwise the parent or spouse of the parent having 
 56.28  custody or with whom the minor is living in the event there is 
 56.29  no court order for custody, or guardian having the custody of 
 56.30  such minor, or in the event a person under the age of 18 has no 
 56.31  living father, mother or guardian, the license shall not be 
 56.32  issued to such person unless the application therefor is 
 56.33  approved by the person's employer.  Driver education courses 
 56.34  offered in any public school shall be open for enrollment to 
 56.35  persons between the ages of 15 and 18 years residing in the 
 56.36  school district or attending school therein.  Any public school 
 57.1   offering driver education courses may charge an enrollment fee 
 57.2   for the driver education course which shall not exceed the 
 57.3   actual cost thereof to the public school and the school 
 57.4   district.  The approval required herein shall contain a 
 57.5   verification of the age of the applicant; 
 57.6      (2) To any person whose license has been suspended during 
 57.7   the period of suspension except that a suspended license may be 
 57.8   reinstated during the period of suspension upon the licensee 
 57.9   furnishing proof of financial responsibility in the same manner 
 57.10  as provided in the Minnesota no-fault automobile insurance act; 
 57.11     (3) To any person whose license has been revoked except 
 57.12  upon furnishing proof of financial responsibility in the same 
 57.13  manner as provided in the Minnesota no-fault automobile 
 57.14  insurance act and if otherwise qualified; 
 57.15     (4) To any person who is a drug dependent person as defined 
 57.16  in section 254A.02, subdivision 5; 
 57.17     (5) To any person who has been adjudged legally incompetent 
 57.18  by reason of mental illness, mental deficiency, or inebriation, 
 57.19  and has not been restored to capacity, unless the department is 
 57.20  satisfied that such person is competent to operate a motor 
 57.21  vehicle with safety to persons or property; 
 57.22     (6) To any person who is required by this chapter to take 
 57.23  an examination, unless such person shall have successfully 
 57.24  passed such examination; 
 57.25     (7) To any person who is required under the provisions of 
 57.26  the Minnesota no-fault automobile insurance act of this state to 
 57.27  deposit proof of financial responsibility and who has not 
 57.28  deposited such proof; 
 57.29     (8) To any person when the commissioner has good cause to 
 57.30  believe that the operation of a motor vehicle on the highways by 
 57.31  such person would be inimical to public safety or welfare; 
 57.32     (9) To any person when, in the opinion of the commissioner, 
 57.33  such person is afflicted with or suffering from such physical or 
 57.34  mental disability or disease as will affect such person in a 
 57.35  manner to prevent the person from exercising reasonable and 
 57.36  ordinary control over a motor vehicle while operating the same 
 58.1   upon the highways; nor to a person who is unable to read and 
 58.2   understand official signs regulating, warning, and directing 
 58.3   traffic; 
 58.4      (10) To a child for whom a court has ordered denial of 
 58.5   driving privileges under section 260.191, subdivision 1, or 
 58.6   260.195, subdivision 3a, until the period of denial is 
 58.7   completed; or

 58.10     Sec. 14.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 242.31, 
 58.11  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 58.12     Subdivision 1.  Whenever a person who has been committed to 
 58.13  the custody of the commissioner of corrections upon conviction 
 58.14  of a crime following certification to district court under the 
 58.15  provisions of section 260.125 is finally discharged by order of 
 58.16  the commissioner, that discharge shall restore the person to all 
 58.17  civil rights and, if so ordered by the commissioner of 
 58.18  corrections, also shall have the effect of setting aside the 
 58.19  conviction, nullifying it and purging the person of it.  The 
 58.20  commissioner shall file a copy of the order with the district 
 58.21  court of the county in which the conviction occurred; upon 
 58.22  receipt, the court shall order the conviction set aside.  An 
 58.23  order setting aside a conviction for a crime of violence as 
 58.24  defined in section 624.712, subdivision 5, must provide that the 
 58.25  person is not entitled to ship, transport, possess, or receive a 
 58.26  firearm until ten years have elapsed since the order was entered 
 58.27  and during that time the person was not convicted of any other 
 58.28  crime of violence.  A person whose conviction was set aside 
 58.29  under this section and who thereafter has received a relief of 
 58.30  disability under United States Code, title 18, section 925, 
 58.31  shall not be subject to the restrictions of this subdivision.

 58.36  alcohol offense, a juvenile controlled substance offense, a 
 59.1   violation of section 609.685, or a violation of a local 
 59.2   ordinance, which by its terms prohibits conduct by a child under 
 59.3   the age of 18 years which would be lawful conduct if committed 
 59.4   by an adult.  
 59.5      (b) "Juvenile petty offense" also includes an offense, 
 59.6   other than a violation of section 609.224, 609.324, 609.563, 
 59.7   609.576, or 617.23, that would be a misdemeanor if committed by 
 59.8   an adult if: 
 59.9      (1) the child has not been found to be a juvenile petty 
 59.10  offender on more than two prior occasions for a 
 59.11  misdemeanor-level offense; 
 59.12     (2) the child has not previously been found to be 
 59.13  delinquent for a misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, or felony 
 59.14  offense; or 
 59.15     (3) the county attorney designates the child on the 
 59.16  petition as a juvenile petty offender, notwithstanding the 
 59.17  child's prior record of misdemeanor-level juvenile petty 
 59.18  offenses. 
 59.19     (c) A child who commits a juvenile petty offense is a 
 59.20  "juvenile petty offender."

 59.22     The court shall make an orientation and educational program 
 59.23  available for juveniles and their families in accordance with 
 59.24  the program established, if any, by the supreme court. 
 59.25     Sec. 17.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.115, 
 59.26  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 59.27     Subdivision 1.  [TRANSFERS REQUIRED.] Except where a 
 59.28  juvenile court has certified an alleged violation to district 
 59.29  court in accordance with the provisions of section 260.125, the 
 59.30  child is alleged to have committed murder in the first degree 
 59.31  after becoming 16 years of age, or a court has original 
 59.32  jurisdiction of a child who has committed an adult court traffic 
 59.33  offense, as defined in section 260.193, subdivision 1, clause 
 59.34  (c), a court other than a juvenile court shall immediately 
 59.35  transfer to the juvenile court of the county the case of a minor 
 59.36  who appears before the court on a charge of violating any state 
 60.1   or local law or ordinance and who is under 18 years of age or 
 60.2   who was under 18 years of age at the time of the commission of 
 60.3   the alleged offense. 
 60.4      Sec. 18.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.125, is 
 60.5   amended to read: 
 60.6      260.125 [CERTIFICATION TO DISTRICT COURT.] 
 60.7      Subdivision 1.  When a child is alleged to have committed, 
 60.8   after becoming 14 years of age, an offense that would be a 
 60.9   felony if committed by an adult, the juvenile court may enter an 
 60.10  order certifying the proceeding to the district court for action 
 60.11  under the criminal laws under the laws and court procedures 
 60.12  controlling adult criminal violations. 
 60.13     Subd. 2.  [ORDER OF CERTIFICATION; REQUIREMENTS.] Except as 
 60.14  provided in subdivision 3a or 3b, the juvenile court may order a 
 60.15  certification to district court only if:  
 60.16     (1) a petition has been filed in accordance with the 
 60.17  provisions of section 260.131; 
 60.18     (2) a motion for certification has been filed by the 
 60.19  prosecuting authority;

 60.23  provisions of section 260.155 within 30 days of the filing of 
 60.24  the certification motion, unless good cause is shown by the 
 60.25  prosecution or the child as to why the hearing should not be 
 60.26  held within this period in which case the hearing shall be held 
 60.27  within 90 days of the filing of the motion; 
 60.28     (5) the court finds that there is probable cause, as 
 60.29  defined by the rules of criminal procedure promulgated pursuant 
 60.30  to section 480.059, to believe the child committed the offense 
 60.31  alleged by delinquency petition; and 
 60.32     (6) the court finds either: 
 60.33     (i) that the presumption of certification created by 
 60.34  subdivision 2a applies and the child has not rebutted the 
 60.35  presumption by clear and convincing evidence demonstrating that 
 60.36  retaining the proceeding in the juvenile court serves public 
 61.1   safety; or 
 61.2      (ii) that the presumption of certification does not apply 
 61.3   and the prosecuting authority has demonstrated by clear and 
 61.4   convincing evidence that retaining the proceeding in the 
 61.5   juvenile court does not serve public safety.  If the court finds 
 61.6   that the prosecutor has not demonstrated by clear and convincing 
 61.7   evidence that retaining the proceeding in juvenile court does 
 61.8   not serve public safety, the court shall retain the proceeding 
 61.9   in juvenile court. 
 61.10     Subd. 2a.  [PRESUMPTION OF CERTIFICATION.] It is presumed 
 61.11  that a proceeding involving an offense committed by a child will 
 61.12  be certified to district court if: 
 61.13     (1) the child was 16 or 17 years old at the time of the 
 61.14  offense; and 
 61.15     (2) the delinquency petition alleges that the child 
 61.16  committed an offense that would result in a presumptive 
 61.17  commitment to prison under the sentencing guidelines and 
 61.18  applicable statutes, or that the child committed any felony 
 61.19  offense while using, whether by brandishing, displaying, 
 61.20  threatening with, or otherwise employing, a firearm. 
 61.21  If the court determines that probable cause exists to believe 
 61.22  the child committed the alleged offense, the burden is on the 
 61.23  child to rebut this presumption by demonstrating by clear and 
 61.24  convincing evidence that retaining the proceeding in the 
 61.25  juvenile court serves public safety.  If the court finds that 
 61.26  the child has not rebutted the presumption by clear and 
 61.27  convincing evidence, the court shall certify the child to 
 61.28  district court proceeding. 
 61.29     Subd. 2b.  [PUBLIC SAFETY.] In determining whether the 
 61.30  public safety is served by certifying a child to district court 
 61.31  the matter, the court shall consider the following factors: 
 61.32     (1) the seriousness of the alleged offense in terms of 
 61.33  community protection, including the existence of any aggravating 
 61.34  factors recognized by the sentencing guidelines, the use of a 
 61.35  firearm, and the impact on any victim; 
 61.36     (2) the culpability of the child in committing the alleged 
 62.1   offense, including the level of the child's participation in 
 62.2   planning and carrying out the offense and the existence of any 
 62.3   mitigating factors recognized by the sentencing guidelines; 
 62.4      (3) the child's prior record of delinquency; 
 62.5      (4) the child's programming history, including the child's 
 62.6   past willingness to participate meaningfully in available 
 62.7   programming; 
 62.8      (5) the adequacy of the punishment or programming available 
 62.9   in the juvenile justice system; and 
 62.10     (6) the dispositional options available for the child. 
 62.11  In considering these factors, the court shall give greater 
 62.12  weight to the seriousness of the alleged offense and the child's 
 62.13  prior record of delinquency than to the other factors listed in 
 62.14  this subdivision. 
 62.15     Subd. 3a.  [PRIOR CERTIFICATION; EXCEPTION.] 
 62.16  Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions 2, 2a, and 2b, 
 62.17  the court shall order a certification in any felony case if the 
 62.18  prosecutor shows that the child has been previously prosecuted 
 62.19  on a felony charge by an order of certification issued pursuant 
 62.20  to either a hearing held under subdivision 2 or pursuant to the 
 62.21  waiver of the right to such a hearing, other than a prior 
 62.22  certification in the same case. 
 62.23     This subdivision only applies if the child is convicted of 
 62.24  the offense or offenses for which the child was prosecuted 
 62.25  pursuant to the order of certification or of a lesser-included 
 62.26  offense which is a felony.  
 62.27     This subdivision does not apply to juvenile offenders who 
 62.28  are subject to criminal court jurisdiction under section 609.055.
 62.29     Subd. 3b.  [ADULT CHARGED WITH JUVENILE OFFENSE.] The 
 62.30  juvenile court has jurisdiction to hold a certification hearing 
 62.31  on motion of the prosecuting authority to certify the matter to 
 62.32  district court if: 
 62.33     (1) an adult is alleged to have committed an offense before 
 62.34  the adult's 18th birthday; and 
 62.35     (2) a petition is filed under section 260.131 before 
 62.36  expiration of the time for filing under section 628.26. 
 63.1   The court may not certify the matter to district court under 
 63.2   this subdivision if the adult demonstrates that the delay was 
 63.3   purposefully caused by the state in order to gain an unfair 
 63.4   advantage. 
 63.5      Subd. 4.  [EFFECT OF ORDER.] When the juvenile court enters 
 63.6   an order certifying an alleged violation to district court, the 
 63.7   prosecuting authority shall proceed with the case as if the 
 63.8   jurisdiction of the juvenile court had never attached. 
 63.9      Subd. 5.  [WRITTEN FINDINGS; OPTIONS.] The court shall 
 63.10  decide whether to order certification to district court within 
 63.11  15 days after the certification hearing was completed, unless 
 63.12  additional time is needed, in which case the court may extend 
 63.13  the period up to another 15 days.  If the juvenile court orders 
 63.14  certification, and the presumption described in subdivision 2a 
 63.15  does not apply, the order shall contain in writing, findings of 
 63.16  fact and conclusions of law as to why public safety is not 
 63.17  served by retaining the proceeding in the juvenile court.  If 
 63.18  the juvenile court, after a hearing conducted pursuant to 
 63.19  subdivision 2, decides not to order certification to district 
 63.20  court, the decision shall contain, in writing, findings of fact 
 63.21  and conclusions of law as to why certification is not ordered.  
 63.22  If the juvenile court decides not to order certification in a 
 63.23  case in which the presumption described in subdivision 2a 
 63.24  applies, the court shall designate the proceeding an extended 
 63.25  jurisdiction juvenile prosecution and include in its decision 
 63.26  written findings of fact and conclusions of law as to why the 
 63.27  retention of the proceeding in juvenile court serves public 
 63.28  safety, with specific reference to the factors listed in 
 63.29  subdivision 2b.  If the court decides not to order certification 
 63.30  in a case in which the presumption described in subdivision 2a 
 63.31  does not apply, the court may designate the proceeding an 
 63.32  extended jurisdiction juvenile prosecution, pursuant to the 
 63.33  hearing process described in section 260.126, subdivision 2. 
 63.34     Subd. 6.  [FIRST-DEGREE MURDER.] When a motion for 
 63.35  certification has been filed in a case in which the petition 
 63.36  alleges that the child committed murder in the first degree, the 
 64.1   prosecuting authority shall present the case to the grand jury 
 64.2   for consideration of indictment under chapter 628 within 14 days 
 64.3   after the petition was filed. 
 64.4      Subd. 7.  [INAPPLICABILITY TO CERTAIN OFFENDERS.] This 
 64.5   section does not apply to a child excluded from the definition 
 64.6   of delinquent child under section 260.015, subdivision 5, 
 64.7   paragraph (b). 
 64.8      Sec. 19.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.126, 
 64.9   subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
 64.10     Subd. 5.  [EXECUTION OF ADULT SENTENCE.] When it appears 
 64.11  that a person convicted as an extended jurisdiction juvenile has 
 64.12  violated the conditions of the stayed sentence, or is alleged to 
 64.13  have committed a new offense, the court may, without notice, 
 64.14  revoke the stay and probation and direct that the offender be 
 64.15  taken into immediate custody.  The court shall notify the 
 64.16  offender in writing of the reasons alleged to exist for 
 64.17  revocation of the stay of execution of the adult sentence.  If 
 64.18  the offender challenges the reasons, the court shall hold a 
 64.19  summary hearing on the issue at which the offender is entitled 
 64.20  to be heard and represented by counsel.  After the hearing, if 
 64.21  the court finds that reasons exist to revoke the stay of 
 64.22  execution of sentence, the court shall treat the offender as an 
 64.23  adult and order any of the adult sanctions authorized by section 
 64.24  609.14, subdivision 3.  If the offender was convicted of an 
 64.25  offense described in subdivision 1, clause (2), and the court 
 64.26  finds that reasons exist to revoke the stay, the court must 
 64.27  order execution of the previously imposed sentence unless the 
 64.28  court makes written findings regarding the mitigating factors 
 64.29  that justify continuing the stay.  Upon revocation, the 
 64.30  offender's extended jurisdiction status is terminated and 
 64.31  juvenile court jurisdiction is terminated.  The ongoing 
 64.32  jurisdiction for any adult sanction, other than commitment to 
 64.33  the commissioner of corrections, is with the adult court. 
 64.34     Sec. 20.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.131, is 
 64.35  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 64.36     Subd. 1b.  [CHILD IN NEED OF PROTECTION OR SERVICES; 
 65.1   HABITUAL TRUANT.] If there is a school attendance review board 
 65.2   or county attorney mediation program operating in the child's 
 65.3   school district, a petition alleging that a child is in need of 
 65.4   protection or services as a habitual truant under section 
 65.5   260.015, subdivision 2a, clause (12), may not be filed until the 
 65.6   applicable procedures under section 260A.06 or 260A.07 have been 
 65.7   exhausted. 
 65.8      Sec. 21.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.131, 
 65.9   subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 65.10     Subd. 4.  [DELINQUENCY PETITION; EXTENDED JURISDICTION 
 65.11  JUVENILE.] When a prosecutor files a delinquency petition 
 65.12  alleging that a child committed a felony offense for which there 
 65.13  is a presumptive commitment to prison according to the 
 65.14  sentencing guidelines and applicable statutes or in which the 
 65.15  child used a firearm, after reaching the age of 16 years, the 
 65.16  prosecutor shall indicate in the petition whether the prosecutor 
 65.17  designates the proceeding an extended jurisdiction juvenile 
 65.18  prosecution.  When a prosecutor files a delinquency petition 
 65.19  alleging that a child aged 14 to 17 years committed a felony 
 65.20  offense, the prosecutor may request that the court designate the 
 65.21  proceeding an extended jurisdiction juvenile prosecution. 
 65.22     Sec. 22.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.132, 
 65.23  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 65.24     Subdivision 1.  [NOTICE.] When a peace officer, or 
 65.25  attendance officer in the case of a habitual truant, has 
 65.26  probable cause to believe that a child: 
 65.27     (1) is in need of protection or services under section 
 65.28  260.015, subdivision 2a, clause (11) or (12); 
 65.29     (2) is a juvenile petty offender; or 
 65.30     (3) has committed a delinquent act that would be a petty 
 65.31  misdemeanor or misdemeanor if committed by an adult; 
 65.32  the officer may issue a notice to the child to appear in 
 65.33  juvenile court in the county in which the child is found or in 
 65.34  the county of the child's residence or, in the case of a 
 65.35  juvenile petty offense, or a petty misdemeanor or misdemeanor 
 65.36  delinquent act, the county in which the offense was committed.  
 66.1   If there is a school attendance review board or county attorney 
 66.2   mediation program operating in the child's school district, a 
 66.3   notice to appear in juvenile court for a habitual truant may not 
 66.4   be issued until the applicable procedures under section 260A.06 
 66.5   or 260A.07 have been exhausted.  The officer shall file a copy 
 66.6   of the notice to appear with the juvenile court of the 
 66.7   appropriate county.  If a child fails to appear in response to 
 66.8   the notice, the court may issue a summons notifying the child of 
 66.9   the nature of the offense alleged and the time and place set for 
 66.10  the hearing.  If the peace officer finds it necessary to take 
 66.11  the child into custody, sections 260.165 and 260.171 shall apply.
 66.12     Sec. 23.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.132, is 
 66.13  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 66.14     Subd. 3a.  [NO RIGHT TO COUNSEL AT PUBLIC EXPENSE.] A child 
 66.15  alleged to be a juvenile petty offender may be represented by 
 66.16  counsel, but does not have a right to appointment of a public 
 66.17  defender or other counsel at public expense. 
 66.18     Sec. 24.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.132, 
 66.19  subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 66.20     Subd. 4.  [TRUANT.] When a peace officer or probation 
 66.21  officer has probable cause to believe that a child is currently 
 66.22  under age 16 and absent from school without lawful excuse, the 
 66.23  officer may transport the child to the child's home and deliver 
 66.24  the child to the custody of the child's parent or guardian, 
 66.25  transport the child to the child's school of enrollment and 
 66.26  deliver the child to the custody of a school superintendent or 
 66.27  teacher or transport the child to a truancy service center under 
 66.28  section 260A.04, subdivision 3.  For purposes of this 
 66.29  subdivision, a truancy service center is a facility that 
 66.30  receives truant students from peace officers or probation 
 66.31  officers and takes appropriate action including one or more of 
 66.32  the following: 
 66.33     (1) assessing the truant's attendance situation; 
 66.34     (2) assisting in coordinating intervention efforts where 
 66.35  appropriate; 
 66.36     (3) contacting the parents or legal guardian of the truant 
 67.1   and releasing the truant to the custody of the parent or 
 67.2   guardian; and 
 67.3      (4) facilitating the truant's earliest possible return to 
 67.4   school. 
 67.5      Sec. 25.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.155, 
 67.6   subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
 67.7      Subd. 2.  [APPOINTMENT OF COUNSEL.] (a) The child, parent, 
 67.8   guardian or custodian have has the right to effective assistance 
 67.9   of counsel in connection with a proceeding in juvenile 
 67.10  court unless the child is charged with a juvenile petty offense 
 67.11  as defined in section 260.015, subdivision 21.  Before a child 
 67.12  who is charged by delinquency petition with a misdemeanor 
 67.13  offense waives the right to counsel or enters a plea, the child 
 67.14  shall consult in person with counsel who shall provide a full 
 67.15  and intelligible explanation of the child's rights.  The court 
 67.16  shall appoint counsel, or stand-by counsel if the child waives 
 67.17  the right to counsel, for a child who is: 
 67.18     (1) charged by delinquency petition with a gross 
 67.19  misdemeanor or felony offense; or 
 67.20     (2) the subject of a delinquency proceeding in which 
 67.21  out-of-home placement has been proposed. 
 67.22     (b) If they desire counsel but are unable to employ it, the 
 67.23  court shall appoint counsel to represent the child or the 
 67.24  parents or guardian in any other case in which it feels that 
 67.25  such an appointment is desirable, except a juvenile petty 
 67.26  offense as defined in section 260.015, subdivision 21. 
 67.27     Sec. 26.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.161, 
 67.28  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 67.29     Subd. 3.  [PEACE OFFICER RECORDS OF CHILDREN.] (a) Except 
 67.30  for records relating to an offense where proceedings are public 
 67.31  under section 260.155, subdivision 1, peace officers' records of 
 67.32  children who are or may be delinquent or who may be engaged in 
 67.33  criminal acts shall be kept separate from records of persons 18 
 67.34  years of age or older and are private data but shall be 
 67.35  disseminated:  (1) by order of the juvenile court, (2) as 
 67.36  required by section 126.036, (3) as authorized under section 
 68.1   13.82, subdivision 2, (4) to the child or the child's parent or 
 68.2   guardian unless disclosure of a record would interfere with an 
 68.3   ongoing investigation, or (5) as otherwise provided in this 
 68.4   subdivision.  Except as provided in paragraph (c), no 
 68.5   photographs of a child taken into custody may be taken without 
 68.6   the consent of the juvenile court unless the child is alleged to 
 68.7   have violated section 169.121 or 169.129.  Peace officers' 
 68.8   records containing data about children who are victims of crimes 
 68.9   or witnesses to crimes must be administered consistent with 
 68.10  section 13.82, subdivisions 2, 3, 4, and 10.  Any person 
 68.11  violating any of the provisions of this subdivision shall be 
 68.12  guilty of a misdemeanor. 
 68.13     In the case of computerized records maintained about 
 68.14  juveniles by peace officers, the requirement of this subdivision 
 68.15  that records about juveniles must be kept separate from adult 
 68.16  records does not mean that a law enforcement agency must keep 
 68.17  its records concerning juveniles on a separate computer system.  
 68.18  Law enforcement agencies may keep juvenile records on the same 
 68.19  computer as adult records and may use a common index to access 
 68.20  both juvenile and adult records so long as the agency has in 
 68.21  place procedures that keep juvenile records in a separate place 
 68.22  in computer storage and that comply with the special data 
 68.23  retention and other requirements associated with protecting data 
 68.24  on juveniles. 
 68.25     (b) Nothing in this subdivision prohibits the exchange of 
 68.26  information by law enforcement agencies if the exchanged 
 68.27  information is pertinent and necessary to the requesting agency 
 68.28  in initiating, furthering, or completing a criminal 
 68.29  investigation. 
 68.30     (c) A photograph may be taken of a child taken into custody 
 68.31  pursuant to section 260.165, subdivision 1, clause (b), provided 
 68.32  that the photograph must be destroyed when the child reaches the 
 68.33  age of 19 years.  The commissioner of corrections may photograph 
 68.34  juveniles whose legal custody is transferred to the 
 68.35  commissioner.  Photographs of juveniles authorized by this 
 68.36  paragraph may be used only for institution management purposes, 
 69.1   case supervision by parole agents, and to assist law enforcement 
 69.2   agencies to apprehend juvenile offenders.  The commissioner 
 69.3   shall maintain photographs of juveniles in the same manner as 
 69.4   juvenile court records and names under this section. 
 69.5      (d) Traffic investigation reports are open to inspection by 
 69.6   a person who has sustained physical harm or economic loss as a 
 69.7   result of the traffic accident.  Identifying information on 
 69.8   juveniles who are parties to traffic accidents may be disclosed 
 69.9   as authorized under section 13.82, subdivision 4, and accident 
 69.10  reports required under section 169.09 may be released under 
 69.11  section 169.09, subdivision 13, unless the information would 
 69.12  identify a juvenile who was taken into custody or who is 
 69.13  suspected of committing an offense that would be a crime if 
 69.14  committed by an adult, or would associate a juvenile with the 
 69.15  offense, and the offense is not a minor traffic offense under 
 69.16  section 260.193. 
 69.17     (e) A law enforcement agency shall notify the principal or 
 69.18  chief administrative officer of a juvenile's school of an 
 69.19  incident occurring within the agency's jurisdiction if: 
 69.20     (1) the agency has probable cause to believe that the 
 69.21  juvenile has committed an offense that would be a crime if 
 69.22  committed as an adult, that the victim of the offense is a 
 69.23  student or staff member of the school, and that notice to the 
 69.24  school is reasonably necessary for the protection of the victim; 
 69.25  or 
 69.26     (2) the agency has probable cause to believe that the 
 69.27  juvenile has committed an offense described in subdivision 1b, 
 69.28  paragraph (a), clauses (1) to (3), that would be a crime if 
 69.29  committed by an adult, regardless of whether the victim is a 
 69.30  student or staff member of the school. 
 69.31     A law enforcement agency is not required to notify the 
 69.32  school under this paragraph if the agency determines that notice 
 69.33  would jeopardize an ongoing investigation.  Notwithstanding 
 69.34  section 138.17, data from a notice received from a law 
 69.35  enforcement agency under this paragraph must be destroyed when 
 69.36  the juvenile graduates from the school or at the end of the 
 70.1   academic year when the juvenile reaches age 23, whichever date 
 70.2   is earlier.  For purposes of this paragraph, "school" means a 
 70.3   public or private elementary, middle, or secondary school. 
 70.4      (f) In any county in which the county attorney operates or 
 70.5   authorizes the operation of a juvenile prepetition or pretrial 
 70.6   diversion program, a law enforcement agency or county attorney's 
 70.7   office may provide the juvenile diversion program with data 
 70.8   concerning a juvenile who is a participant in or is being 
 70.9   considered for participation in the program. 
 70.10     (g) Upon request of a local social service agency, peace 
 70.11  officer records of children who are or may be delinquent or who 
 70.12  may be engaged in criminal acts may be disseminated to the 
 70.13  agency to promote the best interests of the subject of the data. 
 70.14     Sec. 27.  [260.1735] [EXTENSION OF DETENTION PERIOD.] 
 70.15     Before July 1, 1997, and pursuant to a request from an 
 70.16  eight-day temporary holdover facility, as defined in section 
 70.17  241.0221, the commissioner of corrections, or the commissioner's 
 70.18  designee, may grant a one-time extension per child to the 
 70.19  eight-day limit on detention under this chapter.  This extension 
 70.20  may allow such a facility to detain a child for up to 30 days 
 70.21  including weekends and holidays.  Upon the expiration of the 
 70.22  extension, the child may not be transferred to another eight-day 
 70.23  temporary holdover facility.  The commissioner shall develop 
 70.24  criteria for granting extensions under this section.  These 
 70.25  criteria must ensure that the child be transferred to a 
 70.26  long-term juvenile detention facility as soon as such a transfer 
 70.27  is possible.  Nothing in this section changes the requirements 
 70.28  in section 260.172 regarding the necessity of detention hearings 
 70.29  to determine whether continued detention of the child is proper. 
 70.30     Sec. 28.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.181, 
 70.31  subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 70.32     Subd. 4.  [TERMINATION OF JURISDICTION.] (a) The court may 
 70.33  dismiss the petition or otherwise terminate its jurisdiction on 
 70.34  its own motion or on the motion or petition of any interested 
 70.35  party at any time.  Unless terminated by the court, and except 
 70.36  as otherwise provided in this subdivision, the jurisdiction of 
 71.1   the court shall continue until the individual becomes 19 years 
 71.2   of age if the court determines it is in the best interest of the 
 71.3   individual to do so.  Court jurisdiction under section 260.015, 
 71.4   subdivision 2a, clause (12), may not continue past the child's 
 71.5   17th birthday.  
 71.6      (b) The jurisdiction of the court over an extended 
 71.7   jurisdiction juvenile, with respect to the offense for which the 
 71.8   individual was convicted as an extended jurisdiction juvenile, 
 71.9   extends until the offender becomes 21 years of age, unless the 
 71.10  court terminates jurisdiction before that date.  
 71.11     (c) The juvenile court has jurisdiction to designate the 
 71.12  proceeding an extended jurisdiction juvenile prosecution, to 
 71.13  hold a certification hearing, or to conduct a trial, receive a 
 71.14  plea, or impose a disposition under section 260.126, subdivision 
 71.15  4, if: 
 71.16     (1) an adult is alleged to have committed an offense before 
 71.17  the adult's 18th birthday; and 
 71.18     (2) a petition is filed under section 260.131 before 
 71.19  expiration of the time for filing under section 628.26 and 
 71.20  before the adult's 21st birthday. 
 71.21  The juvenile court lacks jurisdiction under this paragraph if 
 71.22  the adult demonstrates that the delay was purposefully caused by 
 71.23  the state in order to gain an unfair advantage. 
 71.24     (d) The district court has original and exclusive 
 71.25  jurisdiction over a proceeding: 
 71.26     (1) that involves an adult who is alleged to have committed 
 71.27  an offense before the adult's 18th birthday; and 
 71.28     (2) in which a criminal complaint is filed before 
 71.29  expiration of the time for filing under section 628.26 and after 
 71.30  the adult's 21st birthday. 
 71.31     The juvenile court retains jurisdiction if the adult 
 71.32  demonstrates that the delay in filing a criminal complaint was 
 71.33  purposefully caused by the state in order to gain an unfair 
 71.34  advantage. 
 71.35     (e) The juvenile court has jurisdiction over a person who 
 71.36  has been adjudicated delinquent until the person's 21st birthday 
 72.1   if the person fails to appear at any juvenile court hearing or 
 72.2   fails to appear at or absconds from any placement under a 
 72.3   juvenile court order.  The juvenile court has jurisdiction over 
 72.4   a convicted extended jurisdiction juvenile who fails to appear 
 72.5   at any juvenile court hearing or fails to appear at or absconds 
 72.6   from any placement under section 260.126, subdivision 4.  The 
 72.7   juvenile court lacks jurisdiction under this paragraph if the 
 72.8   adult demonstrates that the delay was purposefully caused by the 
 72.9   state in order to gain an unfair advantage. 
 72.10     Sec. 29.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.185, is 
 72.11  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 72.12     Subd. 1b.  [COMMITMENT TO SECURE FACILITY; LENGTH OF STAY; 
 72.13  TRANSFERS.] An adjudicated juvenile may not be placed in a 
 72.14  licensed juvenile secure treatment facility unless the placement 
 72.15  is approved by the juvenile court.  However, the program 
 72.16  administrator may determine the juvenile's length of stay in the 
 72.17  secure portion of the facility.  The administrator shall notify 
 72.18  the court of any movement of juveniles from secure portions of 
 72.19  facilities.  However, the court may, in its discretion, order 
 72.20  that the juveniles be moved back to secure portions of the 
 72.21  facility. 
 72.22     Sec. 30.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.185, is 
 72.23  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 72.24     Subd. 1c.  [PLACEMENT OF JUVENILES IN SECURE FACILITIES; 
 72.25  REQUIREMENTS.] Before a postadjudication placement of a juvenile 
 72.26  in a secure treatment facility either inside or outside the 
 72.27  state, the court may: 
 72.28     (1) consider whether the juvenile has been adjudicated for 
 72.29  a felony offense against the person or that in addition to the 
 72.30  current adjudication, the juvenile has failed to appear in court 
 72.31  on one or more occasions or has run away from home on one or 
 72.32  more occasions; 
 72.33     (2) conduct a subjective assessment to determine whether 
 72.34  the child is a danger to self or others or would abscond from a 
 72.35  nonsecure facility or if the child's health or welfare would be 
 72.36  endangered if not placed in a secure facility; 
 73.1      (3) conduct a culturally appropriate psychological 
 73.2   evaluation which includes a functional assessment of anger and 
 73.3   abuse issues; and 
 73.4      (4) conduct an educational and physical assessment of the 
 73.5   juvenile. 
 73.6      In determining whether to order secure placement, the court 
 73.7   shall consider the necessity of: 
 73.8      (1) protecting the public; 
 73.9      (2) protecting program residents and staff; and 
 73.10     (3) preventing juveniles with histories of absconding from 
 73.11  leaving treatment programs. 
 73.12     Sec. 31.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 260.191, 
 73.13  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 73.14     Subdivision 1.  [DISPOSITIONS.] (a) If the court finds that 
 73.15  the child is in need of protection or services or neglected and 
 73.16  in foster care, it shall enter an order making any of the 
 73.17  following dispositions of the case: 
 73.18     (1) place the child under the protective supervision of the 
 73.19  local social services agency or child-placing agency in the 
 73.20  child's own home under conditions prescribed by the court 
 73.21  directed to the correction of the child's need for protection or 
 73.22  services; 
 73.23     (2) transfer legal custody to one of the following: 
 73.24     (i) a child-placing agency; or 
 73.25     (ii) the local social services agency. 
 73.26     In placing a child whose custody has been transferred under 
 73.27  this paragraph, the agencies shall follow the order of 
 73.28  preference stated in section 260.181, subdivision 3; 
 73.29     (3) if the child is in need of special treatment and care 
 73.30  for reasons of physical or mental health, the court may order 
 73.31  the child's parent, guardian, or custodian to provide it.  If 
 73.32  the parent, guardian, or custodian fails or is unable to provide 
 73.33  this treatment or care, the court may order it provided.  The 
 73.34  court shall not transfer legal custody of the child for the 
 73.35  purpose of obtaining special treatment or care solely because 
 73.36  the parent is unable to provide the treatment or care.  If the 
 74.1   court's order for mental health treatment is based on a 
 74.2   diagnosis made by a treatment professional, the court may order 
 74.3   that the diagnosing professional not provide the treatment to 
 74.4   the child if it finds that such an order is in the child's best 
 74.5   interests; or 
 74.6      (4) if the court believes that the child has sufficient 
 74.7   maturity and judgment and that it is in the best interests of 
 74.8   the child, the court may order a child 16 years old or older to 
 74.9   be allowed to live independently, either alone or with others as 
 74.10  approved by the court under supervision the court considers 
 74.11  appropriate, if the county board, after consultation with the 
 74.12  court, has specifically authorized this dispositional 
 74.13  alternative for a child. 
 74.14     (b) If the child was adjudicated in need of protection or 
 74.15  services because the child is a runaway or habitual truant, the 
 74.16  court may order any of the following dispositions in addition to 
 74.17  or as alternatives to the dispositions authorized under 
 74.18  paragraph (a): 
 74.19     (1) counsel the child or the child's parents, guardian, or 
 74.20  custodian; 
 74.21     (2) place the child under the supervision of a probation 
 74.22  officer or other suitable person in the child's own home under 
 74.23  conditions prescribed by the court, including reasonable rules 
 74.24  for the child's conduct and the conduct of the parents, 
 74.25  guardian, or custodian, designed for the physical, mental, and 
 74.26  moral well-being and behavior of the child; or with the consent 
 74.27  of the commissioner of corrections, place the child in a group 
 74.28  foster care facility which is under the commissioner's 
 74.29  management and supervision; 
 74.30     (3) subject to the court's supervision, transfer legal 
 74.31  custody of the child to one of the following: 
 74.32     (i) a reputable person of good moral character.  No person 
 74.33  may receive custody of two or more unrelated children unless 
 74.34  licensed to operate a residential program under sections 245A.01 
 74.35  to 245A.16; or 
 74.36     (ii) a county probation officer for placement in a group 
 75.1   foster home established under the direction of the juvenile 
 75.2   court and licensed pursuant to section 241.021; 
 75.3      (4) require the child to pay a fine of up to $100.  The 
 75.4   court shall order payment of the fine in a manner that will not 
 75.5   impose undue financial hardship upon the child; 
 75.6      (5) require the child to participate in a community service 
 75.7   project; 
 75.8      (6) order the child to undergo a chemical dependency 
 75.9   evaluation and, if warranted by the evaluation, order 
 75.10  participation by the child in a drug awareness program or an 
 75.11  inpatient or outpatient chemical dependency treatment program; 
 75.12     (7) if the court believes that it is in the best interests 
 75.13  of the child and of public safety that the child's driver's 
 75.14  license or instruction permit be canceled, the court may 
 75.15  recommend to order the commissioner of public safety that to 
 75.16  cancel the child's license be canceled or permit for any period 
 75.17  up to the child's 18th birthday.  If the child does not have a 
 75.18  driver's license or permit, the court may order a denial of 
 75.19  driving privileges for any period up to the child's 18th 
 75.20  birthday.  The court shall forward an order issued under this 
 75.21  clause to the commissioner is authorized to, who shall cancel 
 75.22  the license or permit or deny driving privileges without a 
 75.23  hearing for the period specified by the court.  At any time 
 75.24  before the expiration of the period of cancellation or denial, 
 75.25  the court may, for good cause, recommend to order the 
 75.26  commissioner of public safety that to allow the child be 
 75.27  authorized to apply for a new license or permit, and the 
 75.28  commissioner may shall so authorize; or 
 75.29     (8) order that the child's parent or legal guardian deliver 
 75.30  the child to school at the beginning of each school day for a 
 75.31  period of time specified by the court; or 
 75.32     (9) require the child to perform any other activities or 
 75.33  participate in any other treatment programs deemed appropriate 
 75.34  by the court.  
 75.35     (c) If a child who is 14 years of age or older is 
 75.36  adjudicated in need of protection or services because the child 
 76.1   is a habitual truant and truancy procedures involving the child 
 76.2   were previously dealt with by a school attendance review board 
 76.3   or county attorney mediation program under section 260A.06 or 
 76.4   260A.07, the court shall order a cancellation or denial of 
 76.5   driving privileges under paragraph (b), clause (7), for any 
 76.6   period up to the child's 18th birthday.

 76.12  offenses in the same behavioral incident over: 
 76.13     (1) all juveniles age 15 and under alleged to have 
 76.14  committed any traffic offense; and 
 76.15     (2) 16- and 17-year-olds alleged to have committed any 
 76.16  major traffic offense, except that the adult court has original 
 76.17  jurisdiction over: 
 76.18     (i) petty traffic misdemeanors not a part of the same 
 76.19  behavioral incident of a misdemeanor being handled in juvenile

 78.33  with other community-based truancy services in order to provide 
 78.34  the necessary and most effective intervention for children and 
 78.35  their families.  This continuum of intervention and services 
 78.36  involves progressively intrusive intervention, beginning with 
 79.1   strong service-oriented efforts at the school and community 
 79.2   level and involving the court's authority only when necessary. 
 79.3      Sec. 38.  [260A.02] [DEFINITIONS.]

 79.15  is in middle school, junior high school, or high school. 
 79.16     A child is not a continuing truant if the child is 
 79.17  withdrawn from school by the child's parents because of a 
 79.18  dispute with the school concerning the provision of special 
 79.19  education services under the Individuals with Disabilities 
 79.20  Education Act or accommodations and modifications under the 
 79.21  Americans with Disabilities Act, if the parent makes good faith 
 79.22  efforts to provide the child educational services from any other 
 79.23  source.  No parent who withdraws a child from school during a 
 79.24  dispute with the school concerning the provision of special 
 79.25  education services or accommodations and modifications is

 80.24     (9) that it is recommended that the parent or guardian 
 80.25  accompany the child to school and attend classes with the child 
 80.26  for one day. 
 80.27     Sec. 40.  [260A.04] [COMMUNITY-BASED TRUANCY PROJECTS AND

 84.30  attendance review board, the student may be referred to the 
 84.31  county attorney under section 260A.06, subdivision 3.  If the 
 84.32  student's school district has not established a board, the

 92.34  treatment needs.  The study must specifically examine the type 
 92.35  of offender placed in the facilities, make recommendations on 
 92.36  whether current placement policy makes optimal use of the 
 93.1   facilities, and, if necessary, recommend changes in placement 
 93.2   policies.  By February 15, 1996, the commissioner shall report 
 93.3   to the chairs of the senate crime prevention and house judiciary

 93.19  analysis of the programmatic and demographic differences with 
 93.20  special emphasis on those methods and programs which have 
 93.21  demonstrated rates of success.  The report must also outline how 
 93.22  the programs, services, control, and supervision of juvenile 
 93.23  offenders served by the state facilities at Red Wing and Sauk 
 93.24  Centre could be delivered in ways that have the potential of 
 93.25  reducing the reoffense rates.  The report must also include the 
 93.26  cost-effectiveness and feasibility of options, including private 
 93.27  contracts for programs and services or local government delivery 
 93.28  of services and programs, the delivery of new and creative 
 93.29  programs and services to these juveniles by the state, or any

 93.33  recommends the phasing out of juvenile offender programs at Red 
 93.34  Wing or Sauk Centre, or both, then the task force shall also 
 93.35  recommend alternative programming and locations for serving this 
 93.36  class of juveniles and recommend alternative cost-effective uses 
 94.1   for the facilities.  The question of the future use of either 
 94.2   the Red Wing or Sauk Centre facility is reserved until the 1996 
 94.3   legislative session has considered the report of the task force.
