 14.18  established local matching money two times the amount of the 
 14.19  grant that is sought. 
 14.20     The commissioner shall provide by rule the application 
 14.21  form, procedures for making application form, criteria for 
 14.22  review of the application, and kinds of contributions in 
 14.23  addition to cash that qualify as local matching money.  No grant 
 14.24  to any agency shall may exceed $25,000 $50,000. 
 14.25     Sec. 3.  [299A.281] [SAFE HOUSE PROGRAM IN FERGUS FALLS.] 
 14.26     Notwithstanding section 299A.28, another similar safe house 
 14.27  program, primarily focusing on the safety and protection of 
 14.28  children, may be developed and operate in the city of Fergus 
 14.29  Falls if the program members have completed a criminal 
 14.30  background check satisfactory to the Fergus Falls police 
 14.31  department.  However, the commissioner of public safety is not 
 14.32  required to perform the duties listed under 299A.28, subdivision 
 14.33  2, with respect to the program in Fergus Falls and is not 
 14.34  accountable or liable for any act or failure to act by a member 
 14.35  of that program. 
 14.36     Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 1995 Supplement, section

 15.5   of 11 to 21.  The centers may offer recreational activities, 
 15.6   social services, meals, job skills and career services, and 
 15.7   provide referrals for youths to other available services outside 
 15.8   the centers.  The commissioner may consult with other 
 15.9   appropriate agencies and, to the extent possible, use existing 
 15.10  resources and staff in creating the programs.  The commissioner 
 15.11  shall ensure that the programs, if offered, are adequately 
 15.12  staffed by specially trained personnel and outreach street 
 15.13  workers.  Each center may integrate community volunteers into 
 15.14  the program's activities and services and cooperate with local 
 15.15  law enforcement agencies.  The centers must be open during hours 
 15.16  convenient to youths including evenings, weekends, and extended 
 15.17  summer hours.  However, there may not be any conflicts with

 15.21  amended by Laws 1995, chapter 226, article 4, section 4, is 
 15.22  amended to read:

 18.34  provided in subdivision 2 for the following purposes:  
 18.35     (1) to enable local law enforcement agencies to hire law 
 18.36  enforcement officers.  The grants must be used by law

 19.4   investigate and prevent juvenile crime or to perform 
 19.5   community-oriented policing duties; and 
 19.6      (2) to enable local law enforcement agencies to assign 
 19.7   overtime officers to high crime areas within their jurisdictions.
 19.8      Subd. 2.  [AWARDING GRANTS.] Grants under this section 
 19.9   shall be awarded by the commissioner of public safety.  Before

 19.25  each grant may fund only one position.  At least 50 percent of 
 19.26  the grants awarded under subdivision 1, clause (1), must be 
 19.27  awarded to the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.  
 19.28     Subd. 3.  [AMOUNT OF GRANTS TO HIRE OFFICERS.] A grant

 19.30  150 percent of the entry level salary and benefits of a law 
 19.31  enforcement officer, not to exceed $75,000.  However, the money 
 19.32  may not be used to pay for equipment or uniforms for the 
 19.33  officer.  The grant is intended to be used for the salary of the 
 19.34  officer over a three-year period.

 20.2   money granted under this section for at least a three-year 
 20.3   period.  If for any reason during the three-year period the 
 20.4   employment relationship ends, the agency shall hire an 
 20.5   additional officer so that the total number of officers employed 
 20.6   by the agency does not change.  A law enforcement agency that 
 20.7   fails to comply with this subdivision shall reimburse the 
 20.8   commissioner as follows: 
 20.9      (1) if the failure occurs during the first year, the agency 
 20.10  shall reimburse the full amount of the grant;

 20.12  agency shall reimburse two-thirds of the grant; or 
 20.13     (3) if the failure occurs during the third year but prior 
 20.14  to the three-year anniversary of the officer's hiring, the 
 20.15  agency shall reimburse one-third of the grant.

 21.29  in those civil and criminal cases arising as a result of this 
 21.30  section that the attorney general deems appropriate.  For the

 22.5   least four pilot programs to provide intensive monitoring in the 
 22.6   community for juveniles who have committed or are at risk to 
 22.7   commit status offenses or delinquent acts.  A juvenile need not 
 22.8   be adjudicated for an offense to be eligible for the program.  
 22.9   The pilot programs shall provide a work experience for qualified

 23.11     Sec. 9.  [PILOT PROJECT FOR FAMILY GROUP CONFERENCING IN 
 23.12  DAKOTA COUNTY.] 
 23.13     Subdivision 1.  [PILOT PROJECT ESTABLISHED.] By July 1, 
 23.14  1996, the commissioner of corrections shall establish a pilot 
 23.15  project in Dakota county to provide assistance to counties, 
 23.16  school districts, and cities in the first judicial district in 
 23.17  establishing family group conferencing programs.  The pilot 
 23.18  project must be administered by a coordinator responsible for 
 23.19  supervising and implementing the project.  The coordinator shall 
 23.20  cooperate with and provide necessary assistance and training to 
 23.21  county attorneys, local law enforcement agencies, school 
 23.22  districts, and community groups in establishing family group 
 23.23  conferencing programs under subdivision 2. 
 23.24     Subd. 2.  [FAMILY GROUP CONFERENCING PROGRAMS.] A county 
 23.25  attorney, school district, or city in the first judicial 
 23.26  district, in consultation with the coordinator and local law 
 23.27  enforcement agencies, may establish a family group conferencing 
 23.28  program.  The program may provide forums where, as an 
 23.29  alternative to prosecution, certain individuals accused of 
 23.30  having committed crimes meet with the victim or victims of the 
 23.31  alleged crime; family members of the victim or victims, if 
 23.32  appropriate; family members of the offender, if appropriate; a 
 23.33  law enforcement official or prosecutor; and members of the 
 23.34  community.  An individual properly trained in moderating a 
 23.35  family group conference shall act as moderator of the 
 23.36  conference.  The conference must focus on the impact of the 
 24.1   offense on the victim and the community and assign an 
 24.2   appropriate sanction to the offender.  An appropriate sanction 
 24.3   may include reparation to the victim or community, specified 
 24.4   community service, or other sanction agreed upon during the 
 24.5   conference. 
 24.6      Subd. 3.  [CONFERENCE PARAMETERS.] A county or city 
 24.7   attorney, in consultation with the coordinator and local law 
 24.8   enforcement agencies, shall establish parameters for the 
 24.9   conferences.  The parameters must specify the types of offenders 
 24.10  and offenses eligible for the conferences and the nature and 
 24.11  goals of the conferences.  Only certain offenders deemed 
 24.12  appropriate by the county attorney are eligible for the 
 24.13  conferences.  Decisions on eligibility shall be based on the 
 24.14  criminal history of the offender, the nature of the offense, the 
 24.15  danger posed by the offender to the victim and the community, 
 24.16  and the best interests of the victim and community.  
 24.17  Participation in the conference is voluntary, no offender or 
 24.18  victim may be required to participate in a conference.  A 
 24.19  decision to prosecute an offender who has refused to participate 
 24.20  in a conference may not be considered in determining the 
 24.21  voluntariness of an offender's decision to participate. 
 24.22     A prosecutor who offers an offender the opportunity to 
 24.23  participate in a conference retains the authority to prosecute 
 24.24  the offender if the offender refuses to participate in the 
 24.25  conference, chooses not to complete the conference, or fails to

 32.6   proof of insurance stating that security had been provided for 
 32.7   the vehicle that was being operated at the time of the demand to 
 32.8   the court administrator.  The required proof of insurance may be 
 32.9   sent by mail by the driver as long as it is received within ten 
 32.10  days no later than the date and time specified in the citation 
 32.11  for the driver's first court appearance.  If a citation is 
 32.12  issued, no person shall be convicted of violating this section 
 32.13  if the court administrator receives the required proof of 
 32.14  insurance within ten days of the issuance of the citation no 
 32.15  later than the date and time specified in the citation for the 
 32.16  driver's first court appearance.  If the charge is made other 
 32.17  than by citation, no person shall be convicted of violating this 
 32.18  section if the person presents the required proof of insurance 
 32.19  at the person's first court appearance after the charge is made. 
 32.20     Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 169.791, 
 32.21  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 32.22     Subd. 3.  [LATER PRODUCTION OF INFORMATION BY DRIVER WHO IS 
 32.23  NOT OWNER.] If the driver is not the owner of the vehicle, the 
 32.24  driver shall, within ten days of the officer's demand no later 
 32.25  than the date and time specified in the citation for the 
 32.26  driver's first court appearance, provide the district court 
 32.27  administrator with proof of insurance or the name and address of 
 32.28  the owner.  Upon receipt of the name and address of the owner,

 33.2   to be received five days after mailing and shall be sent to the 
 33.3   owner's current address or the address listed on the owner's

 33.10  this subdivision is guilty of a misdemeanor.  The peace officer 
 33.11  may mail the citation to the owner's current address or address 
 33.12  stated on the owner's driver's license.  It is an affirmative 
 33.13  defense to a charge against the owner that the driver used the 
 33.14  owner's vehicle without consent, if insurance would not have 
 33.15  been required in the absence of the unauthorized use by the 
 33.16  driver.  It is not a defense that a person failed to notify the 
 33.17  department of public safety of a change of name or address as 
 33.18  required under section 171.11.  The citation may be sent after 
 33.19  the ten-day period.

 33.33  section and section 169.791, to providing to the officer the 
 33.34  name and address of the owner of the vehicle.

 34.12  section unless the driver knew or had reason to know that the 
 34.13  owner did not have proof of insurance required by this section, 
 34.14  provided that the driver provides the officer with the owner's 
 34.15  name and address at the time of the demand or complies with 
 34.16  subdivision 3. 
 34.17     Sec. 7.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 169.792, 
 34.18  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 34.19     Subd. 3.  [REQUIREMENT FOR DRIVER WHO IS NOT OWNER.] If the 
 34.20  driver is not the owner of the vehicle, then the driver shall

 34.23  demand, no later than the date and time specified in the 
 34.24  citation for the driver's first court appearance, provide the

 34.28  information to the law enforcement agency.  If the name and 
 34.29  address received from the driver do not match information 
 34.30  available to the district court administrator, the district

 35.26  the driver's first court appearance, if a citation is issued, or 
 35.27  within ten days of receipt of the written notice if a written 
 35.28  notice is sent or given, provided, however, that a driver who 
 35.29  does not own the vehicle shall provide the name and address of

 35.36  permit to drive for a minimum of 30 days, and shall revoke the 
 36.1   registration of the vehicle;

 36.3   display an insurance identification card, insurance policy, or 
 36.4   written statement, knowing that the insurance is not in force, 
 36.5   is guilty of a misdemeanor; and 
 36.6      (4) that any person who alters or makes a fictitious 
 36.7   identification card, insurance policy, or written statement, or 
 36.8   knowingly displays an altered or fictitious identification card, 
 36.9   insurance policy, or written statement, is guilty of a

 36.16  than the date and time specified in the citation for the 
 36.17  driver's first court appearance, the district court 
 36.18  administrator shall report the failure to the commissioner.  If

 36.20  proof of insurance, or if a driver to whom a citation has not 
 36.21  been issued does not provide proof of insurance or the owner's 
 36.22  name and address, within ten days of receipt of the notice, the 
 36.23  law enforcement agency shall report the failure to the

 37.19  characteristics.  The guidelines promulgated by the commission 
 37.20  shall be advisory to the district court and shall establish: 
 37.21     (1) The circumstances under which imprisonment of an 
 37.22  offender is proper; and 
 37.23     (2) A presumptive, fixed sentence for offenders for whom 
 37.24  imprisonment is proper, based on each appropriate combination of 
 37.25  reasonable offense and offender characteristics.  The guidelines 
 37.26  may provide for an increase or decrease of up to 15 percent in 
 37.27  the presumptive, fixed sentence. 
 37.28     The sentencing guidelines promulgated by the commission may

 38.13  history scores, are not subject to review by the legislative 
 38.14  commission to review administrative rules.  However, on or 
 38.15  before January 1, 1986, the commission shall adopt rules 
 38.16  pursuant to sections 14.001 to 14.69 which establish procedures

 38.18  procedures for the promulgation of severity levels and criminal 
 38.19  history scores, and these rules shall be subject to review by

 48.4   convicted person is indigent or that the fee would create undue 
 48.5   hardship for the convicted person or that person's immediate 
 48.6   family.  The person convicted of the offense and ordered to pay 
 48.7   the fee shall pay the fee to the county corrections department

 65.12     Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1995 Supplement, section 
 65.13  518B.01, subdivision 14, is amended to read: 
 65.14     Subd. 14.  [VIOLATION OF AN ORDER FOR PROTECTION.] (a) 
 65.15  Whenever an order for protection is granted pursuant to this 
 65.16  section, and the respondent or person to be restrained knows of 
 65.17  the order, violation of the order for protection is a 
 65.18  misdemeanor.  Upon conviction, the defendant must be sentenced 
 65.19  to a minimum of three days imprisonment and must be ordered to 
 65.20  participate in counseling or other appropriate programs selected 
 65.21  by the court.  If the court stays imposition or execution of the 
 65.22  jail sentence and the defendant refuses or fails to comply with 
 65.23  the court's treatment order, the court must impose and execute 
 65.24  the stayed jail sentence.  A person is guilty of a gross 
 65.25  misdemeanor who violates this paragraph during the time period 
 65.26  between a previous conviction under this paragraph; sections 
 65.27  609.221 to 609.224; 609.2242; 609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 
 65.28  609.748, subdivision 6; 609.749; or a similar law of another 
 65.29  state and the end of the five years following discharge from 
 65.30  sentence for that conviction.  Upon conviction, the defendant 
 65.31  must be sentenced to a minimum of ten days imprisonment and must 
 65.32  be ordered to participate in counseling or other appropriate 
 65.33  programs selected by the court.  Notwithstanding section 
 65.34  609.135, the court must impose and execute the minimum sentence 
 65.35  provided in this paragraph for gross misdemeanor convictions. 
 65.36     (b) A peace officer shall arrest without a warrant and take 
 66.1   into custody a person whom the peace officer has probable cause 
 66.2   to believe has violated an order granted pursuant to this 
 66.3   section restraining the person or excluding the person from the 
 66.4   residence or the petitioner's place of employment, even if the 
 66.5   violation of the order did not take place in the presence of the 
 66.6   peace officer, if the existence of the order can be verified by 
 66.7   the officer.  The person shall be held in custody for at least 
 66.8   36 hours, excluding the day of arrest, Sundays, and holidays, 
 66.9   unless the person is released earlier by a judge or judicial 
 66.10  officer.  A peace officer acting in good faith and exercising 
 66.11  due care in making an arrest pursuant to this paragraph is 
 66.12  immune from civil liability that might result from the officer's 
 66.13  actions. 
 66.14     (c) A violation of an order for protection shall also 
 66.15  constitute contempt of court and be subject to the penalties 
 66.16  therefor.  
 66.17     (d) If the court finds that the respondent has violated an 
 66.18  order for protection and that there is reason to believe that 
 66.19  the respondent will commit a further violation of the provisions 
 66.20  of the order restraining the respondent from committing acts of 
 66.21  domestic abuse or excluding the respondent from the petitioner's 
 66.22  residence, the court may require the respondent to acknowledge 
 66.23  an obligation to comply with the order on the record.  The court 
 66.24  may require a bond sufficient to deter the respondent from 
 66.25  committing further violations of the order for protection, 
 66.26  considering the financial resources of the respondent, and not 
 66.27  to exceed $10,000.  If the respondent refuses to comply with an 
 66.28  order to acknowledge the obligation or post a bond under this 
 66.29  paragraph, the court shall commit the respondent to the county 
 66.30  jail during the term of the order for protection or until the 
 66.31  respondent complies with the order under this paragraph.  The 
 66.32  warrant must state the cause of commitment, with the sum and 
 66.33  time for which any bond is required.  If an order is issued 
 66.34  under this paragraph, the court may order the costs of the 
 66.35  contempt action, or any part of them, to be paid by the 
 66.36  respondent.  An order under this paragraph is appealable.  
 67.1      (e) Upon the filing of an affidavit by the petitioner, any 
 67.2   peace officer, or an interested party designated by the court, 
 67.3   alleging that the respondent has violated any order for 
 67.4   protection granted pursuant to this section, the court may issue 
 67.5   an order to the respondent, requiring the respondent to appear 
 67.6   and show cause within 14 days why the respondent should not be 
 67.7   found in contempt of court and punished therefor.  The hearing 
 67.8   may be held by the court in any county in which the petitioner 
 67.9   or respondent temporarily or permanently resides at the time of 
 67.10  the alleged violation.  The court also shall refer the violation 
 67.11  of the order for protection to the appropriate prosecuting 
 67.12  authority for possible prosecution under paragraph (a). 
 67.13     (f) If it is alleged that the respondent has violated an 
 67.14  order for protection issued under subdivision 6 and the court 
 67.15  finds that the order has expired between the time of the alleged 
 67.16  violation and the court's hearing on the violation, the court 
 67.17  may grant a new order for protection under subdivision 6 based 
 67.18  solely on the respondent's alleged violation of the prior order, 
 67.19  to be effective until the hearing on the alleged violation of 
 67.20  the prior order.  If the court finds that the respondent has 
 67.21  violated the prior order, the relief granted in the new order 
 67.22  for protection shall be extended for a fixed period, not to 
 67.23  exceed one year, except when the court determines a longer fixed 
 67.24  period is appropriate. 
 67.25     (g) The admittance into petitioner's dwelling of an abusing 
 67.26  party excluded from the dwelling under an order for protection 
 67.27  is not a violation by the petitioner of the order for protection.
 67.28     A peace officer is not liable under section 609.43, clause 
 67.29  (1), for a failure to perform a duty required by paragraph (b). 
 67.30     (h) When a person is convicted of violating an order for 
 67.31  protection under this section and the court determines that the 
 67.32  person used a firearm in any way during commission of the 
 67.33  violation, the court may order that the person is prohibited 
 67.34  from possessing any type of firearm for any period longer than 
 67.35  three years or for the remainder of the person's life.  A person 
 67.36  who violates this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.  
 68.1   At the time of the conviction, the court shall inform the 
 68.2   defendant whether and for how long the defendant is prohibited 
 68.3   from possessing a firearm and that it is a gross misdemeanor to 
 68.4   violate this paragraph.  The failure of the court to provide 
 68.5   this information to a defendant does not affect the 
 68.6   applicability of the firearm possession prohibition or the gross 
 68.7   misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 68.8      (i) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (h), when a 
 68.9   person is convicted of violating an order for protection under 
 68.10  this section, the court shall inform the defendant that the 
 68.11  defendant is prohibited from possessing a pistol for three years 
 68.12  from the date of conviction and that it is a gross misdemeanor 
 68.13  offense to violate this prohibition.  The failure of the court 
 68.14  to provide this information to a defendant does not affect the 
 68.15  applicability of the pistol possession prohibition or the gross 
 68.16  misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 68.17     (j) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (h), a person 
 68.18  is not entitled to possess a pistol if the person has been 
 68.19  convicted after August 1, 1996, of violating an order for 
 68.20  protection under this section, unless three years have elapsed 
 68.21  from the date of conviction and, during that time, the person 
 68.22  has not been convicted of any other violation of this section.  
 68.23  Property rights may not be abated but access may be restricted 
 68.24  by the courts.  A person who possesses a pistol in violation of 
 68.25  this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. 
 68.26     (k) If the court determines that a person convicted of 
 68.27  violating an order for protection under this section owns or 
 68.28  possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the commission 
 68.29  of the violation, it shall order that the firearm be summarily 
 68.30  forfeited under section 609.5316, subdivision 3. 
 68.31     Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.035, 
 68.32  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 68.33     Subdivision 1.  Except as provided in subdivision 2, 
 68.34  subdivision 3, and in sections 609.251, 609.585, 609.21, 
 68.35  subdivisions 3 and 4, 609.2691, 609.486, 609.494, and 609.856, 
 68.36  if a person's conduct constitutes more than one offense under 
 69.1   the laws of this state, the person may be punished for only one 
 69.2   of the offenses and a conviction or acquittal of any one of them 
 69.3   is a bar to prosecution for any other of them.  All the 
 69.4   offenses, if prosecuted, shall be included in one prosecution 
 69.5   which shall be stated in separate counts. 
 69.6      Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.035, is 
 69.7   amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 69.8      Subd. 3.  [EXCEPTION; FIREARMS OFFENSES.] Notwithstanding 
 69.9   section 609.04, a prosecution for or conviction of a violation 
 69.10  of section 609.165 or 624.713, subdivision 1, clause (b), is not 
 69.11  a bar to conviction of or punishment for any other crime 
 69.12  committed by the defendant as part of the same conduct.  
 69.13     Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.11,

 69.20  employing, a firearm, shall be committed to the commissioner of 
 69.21  corrections for not less than three years, nor more than the 
 69.22  maximum sentence provided by law.  Any defendant convicted of a 
 69.23  second or subsequent offense in which the defendant or an 
 69.24  accomplice, at the time of the offense, had in possession or 
 69.25  used a firearm shall be committed to the commissioner of 
 69.26  corrections for not less than five years, nor more than the 
 69.27  maximum sentence provided by law.  
 69.28     (b) Any defendant convicted of violating section 609.165 or 
 69.29  624.713, subdivision 1, clause (b), shall be committed to the 
 69.30  commissioner of corrections for not less than 18 months, nor

 73.27     (b) "Child" means a person under the age of 14 18 years. 
 73.28     (c) "Loaded" means the firearm has ammunition in the 
 73.29  chamber or magazine, if the magazine is in the firearm, unless

 73.32     Sec. 12.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 609.749, is

 73.34     Subd. 8.  [STALKING; FIREARMS.] (a) When a person is 
 73.35  convicted of a harassment or stalking crime under this section 
 73.36  and the court determines that the person used a firearm in any 
 74.1   way during commission of the crime, the court may order that the 
 74.2   person is prohibited from possessing any type of firearm for any 
 74.3   period longer than three years or for the remainder of the 
 74.4   person's life.  A person who violates this paragraph is guilty 
 74.5   of a gross misdemeanor.  At the time of the conviction, the 
 74.6   court shall inform the defendant whether and for how long the 
 74.7   defendant is prohibited from possessing a firearm and that it is 
 74.8   a gross misdemeanor to violate this paragraph.  The failure of 
 74.9   the court to provide this information to a defendant does not 
 74.10  affect the applicability of the firearm possession prohibition 
 74.11  or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 74.12     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), when a 
 74.13  person is convicted of a stalking or harassment crime under this 
 74.14  section, the court shall inform the defendant that the defendant 
 74.15  is prohibited from possessing a pistol for three years from the 
 74.16  date of conviction and that it is a gross misdemeanor offense to 
 74.17  violate this prohibition.  The failure of the court to provide 
 74.18  this information to a defendant does not affect the 
 74.19  applicability of the pistol possession prohibition or the gross 
 74.20  misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 74.21     (c) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), a person 
 74.22  is not entitled to possess a pistol if the person has been 
 74.23  convicted after August 1, 1996, of a stalking or harassment 
 74.24  crime under this section, unless three years have elapsed from 
 74.25  the date of conviction and, during that time, the person has not 
 74.26  been convicted of any other violation of this section.  Property 
 74.27  rights may not be abated but access may be restricted by the 
 74.28  courts.  A person who possesses a pistol in violation of this 
 74.29  paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. 
 74.30     (d) If the court determines that a person convicted of a 
 74.31  stalking or harassment crime under this section owns or 
 74.32  possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the commission 
 74.33  of the crime, it shall order that the firearm be summarily 
 74.34  forfeited under section 609.5316, subdivision 3.

 75.4   felony and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 
 75.5   three years or to payment of a fine of not more than $6,000, or 
 75.6   both.  If the transit vehicle or facility is occupied by any 
 75.7   person other than the offender, the person may be sentenced to 
 75.8   imprisonment for not more than five years or to payment of a 
 75.9   fine of not more than $10,000, or both.

 80.27  reoffense.  The committee shall assign to risk level II an 
 80.28  offender whose risk assessment score indicates a moderate risk 
 80.29  of reoffense.  The committee shall assign to risk level III an

 81.2   least 60 days before an offender is released from confinement or

 81.5      (g) As used in this subdivision, "risk factors" includes, 
 81.6   but is not limited to, the following factors: 
 81.7      (1) the seriousness of the offense should the offender 
 81.8   reoffend.  This factor includes consideration of the following:  
 81.9   (i) the degree of likely force or harm; (ii) the degree of 
 81.10  likely physical contact; and (iii) the age of the likely victim; 
 81.11     (2) the offender's prior offense history.  This factor 
 81.12  includes consideration of the following:  (i) the relationship 
 81.13  of prior victims to the offender; (ii) the number of prior 
 81.14  offenses or victims; (iii) the duration of the offender's prior 
 81.15  offense history; (iv) the length of time since the offender's 
 81.16  last prior offense, while the offender was at risk to commit 
 81.17  offenses; and (v) the offender's prior history of other 
 81.18  antisocial acts; 
 81.19     (3) the offender's characteristics.  This factor includes 
 81.20  consideration of the following:  (i) the offender's response to 
 81.21  prior treatment efforts; and (ii) the offender's history of 
 81.22  substance abuse; 
 81.23     (4) the availability of community supports to the offender. 
 81.24  This factor includes consideration of the following:  (i) the 
 81.25  availability and likelihood that the offender will be involved 
 81.26  in therapeutic treatment; (ii) the availability of residential 
 81.27  supports to the offender, such as a stable and supervised living 
 81.28  arrangement in an appropriate location; (iii) the offender's 
 81.29  familial and social relationships, including the nature and 
 81.30  length of these relationships and the level of support that the 
 81.31  offender may receive from these persons; and (iv) the offender's 
 81.32  lack of education or employment stability; 
 81.33     (5) whether the offender has indicated or credible evidence 
 81.34  in the record indicates that the offender will reoffend if 
 81.35  released into the community; and 
 81.36     (6) whether the offender demonstrates a physical condition 
 82.1   that minimizes the risk of reoffense, including but not limited 
 82.2   to, advanced age or a debilitating illness or physical condition.
 82.3      (h) Upon the request of the law enforcement agency or the 
 82.4   offender's corrections agent, the commissioner may reconvene the 
 82.5   end-of-confinement review committee for the purpose of 
 82.6   reassessing the risk level to which an offender has been 
 82.7   assigned under paragraph (e).  In a request for a reassessment, 
 82.8   the law enforcement agency or agent shall list the facts and 
 82.9   circumstances arising after the initial assignment under 
 82.10  paragraph (e) which support the request for a reassessment.  
 82.11  Upon review of the request, the end-of-confinement review 
 82.12  committee may reassign an offender to a different risk level.  
 82.13  If the offender is reassigned to a higher risk level, the 
 82.14  offender has the right to seek review of the committee's 
 82.15  determination under subdivision 6. 
 82.16     (i) An offender may request the end-of-confinement review 
 82.17  committee to reassess the offender's assigned risk level after 
 82.18  two years have elapsed since the committee's initial risk 
 82.19  assessment and may renew the request once every two years 
 82.20  following subsequent denials.  In a request for reassessment, 
 82.21  the offender shall list the facts and circumstances which 
 82.22  demonstrate that the offender no longer poses the same degree of 
 82.23  risk to the community.  The committee shall follow the process 
 82.24  outlined in paragraphs (a) to (e), and (g) in the reassessment.  
 82.25     Subd. 4.  [LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY; DISCLOSURE OF 
 82.26  INFORMATION TO PUBLIC.] (a) The law enforcement agency in the 
 82.27  area where the sex offender resides, expects to reside, is 
 82.28  employed, or is regularly found, is authorized to disclose 
 82.29  information to the public regarding the offender if the agency 
 82.30  determines that disclosure of the information is relevant and 
 82.31  necessary to protect the public and to counteract the offender's 
 82.32  dangerousness.  The extent of the information disclosed and the 
 82.33  community to whom disclosure is made must relate to the level of 
 82.34  danger posed by the offender, to the offender's pattern of 
 82.35  offending behavior, and to the need of community members for 
 82.36  information to enhance their individual and collective safety. 
 83.1      (b) The law enforcement agency shall consider the following 
 83.2   guidelines in determining the scope of disclosure made under 
 83.3   this subdivision: 
 83.4      (1) if the offender is assigned to risk level I, the agency 
 83.5   may maintain information regarding the offender within the 
 83.6   agency and may disclose it to other law enforcement agencies.  
 83.7   Additionally, the agency may disclose the information to any 
 83.8   victims of or witnesses to the offense committed by the offender.
 83.9   The agency shall disclose the information to victims of the 
 83.10  offense committed by the offender who have requested disclosure; 
 83.11     (2) if the offender is assigned to risk level II, the 
 83.12  agency also may disclose the information to the following 
 83.13  agencies and groups that the offender is likely to encounter:  
 83.14  public and private educational institutions; day care 
 83.15  establishments; and establishments and organizations that 
 83.16  primarily serve individuals likely to be victimized by the 
 83.17  offender; 
 83.18     (3) if the offender is assigned to risk level III, the 
 83.19  agency also may disclose the information to other members of the 
 83.20  community whom the offender is likely to encounter. 
 83.21     Notwithstanding the assignment of a sex offender to risk 
 83.22  level II or III, a law enforcement agency may not make the

 83.30  or resides in a licensed facility, the head of the facility 
 83.31  shall notify the law enforcement agency before the end of the 
 83.32  offender's placement or residence in the facility.  Upon

 84.3   visits or is likely to visit on a regular basis, other than the 
 84.4   location of the offender's outpatient treatment program; and (2) 
 84.5   the types of interaction which ordinarily occur at that location 
 84.6   and other circumstances indicate that contact with the offender 
 84.7   is reasonably certain. 
 84.8      (d) A law enforcement agency or official who decides to 
 84.9   disclose information under this subdivision shall make a good 
 84.10  faith effort to make the notification at least 14 days before an 
 84.11  offender is released from confinement or accepted for 
 84.12  supervision.  If a change occurs in the release plan, this 
 84.13  notification provision does not require an extension of the 
 84.14  release date.  
 84.15     (e) A law enforcement agency or official that decides to 
 84.16  disclose information under this subdivision shall make a good

 84.34  review of an end-of-confinement review committee's risk 
 84.35  assessment determination.  The offender must exercise this right 
 84.36  within 14 days of receiving notice of the committee's decision 
 85.1   by notifying the chair of the committee.  Upon receiving the 
 85.2   request for administrative review, the chair shall notify the 
 85.3   offender, the victim or victims of the offender's offense or 
 85.4   their designee, the law enforcement agency, and any other

 85.9   a reasonable opportunity to prepare for the hearing.  The review 
 85.10  hearing shall be conducted on the record before an

 85.14  determination was erroneous.  The attorney general or a designee 
 85.15  shall defend the end-of-confinement review committee's 
 85.16  determination.  The offender has the right to be present and be 
 85.17  represented by counsel at the hearing, to present evidence in 
 85.18  support of the offender's position, to call supporting witnesses 
 85.19  and to cross-examine witnesses testifying in support of the

 85.22  defender's office.  
 85.23     (c) After the hearing is concluded, the administrative law 
 85.24  judge shall decide whether the end-of-confinement review 
 85.25  committee's risk assessment determination was erroneous and, 
 85.26  based on this decision, shall either uphold or modify the review 
 85.27  committee's determination.  The judge's decision shall be in 
 85.28  writing and shall include the judge's reasons for the decision.  
 85.29  The judge's decision shall be final and a copy of it shall be 
 85.30  given to the offender, the victim, the law enforcement agency,

 86.2   failing to disclose information as permitted by this section.  
 86.3      Subd. 8.  [LIMITATION ON SCOPE.] Nothing in this section 
 86.4   imposes a duty upon a person licensed under chapter 82, or an 
 86.5   employee of the person, to disclose information regarding an 
 86.6   offender who is required to register under section 243.166, or

 88.19  POLICY AND INSTRUCTION.] 
 88.20     Subdivision 1.  [MODEL POLICY.] (a) By August 1, 1996, the 
 88.21  peace officer standards and training board shall develop a model 
 88.22  policy for law enforcement agencies to follow when they disclose 
 88.23  information on sex offenders to the public under Minnesota 
 88.24  Statutes, section 244.052, subdivision 3.  The model policy 
 88.25  shall be designed to further the objectives of providing 
 88.26  adequate notice to the community concerning sex offenders who 
 88.27  are or will be residing in the neighborhood and of helping 
 88.28  community members develop constructive plans to prepare 
 88.29  themselves and their children for residing near these sex

 88.31  with representatives of the bureau of criminal apprehension, the 
 88.32  Minnesota chiefs of police association, the Minnesota sheriffs 
 88.33  association, the Minnesota association of women police, the

 89.11     (2) recommended scope of disclosure for offenders 
 89.12  classified at each risk level, including:  (i) specific factors, 
 89.13  if any, that would justify a law enforcement agency in engaging 
 89.14  in broader disclosure than that recommended in the policy; and 
 89.15  (ii) methods to ensure that the scope of disclosure is closely 
 89.16  tailored to the risk level posed by the offender; 
 89.17     (3) recommended method or methods of distributing community 
 89.18  notification documents; 
 89.19     (4) recommended methods of providing follow-up 
 89.20  notifications to community residents at specified intervals and 
 89.21  of disclosing information about offenders to law enforcement 
 89.22  agencies in other jurisdictions when necessary to protect the 
 89.23  public; 
 89.24     (5) recommended methods of educating community residents at 
 89.25  public meetings on how they can use the information in the 
 89.26  notification document in a reasonable manner to enhance their

 89.30  subjected to harassment or criminal acts because of the 
 89.31  notification process; 
 89.32     (7) recommended ways of educating sex offenders before they 
 89.33  are released from incarceration on the nature and scope of the 
 89.34  notification process, the likely reaction of community residents 
 89.35  to their presence in the community, and their right to be free 
 89.36  from harassment or criminal acts committed by community 
 90.1   residents because of the notification process; and 
 90.2      (8) other matters that the board deems necessary to ensure 
 90.3   the effective and fair administration of the community 
 90.4   notification law. 
 90.5      Subd. 2.  [LOCAL POLICY.] By January 1, 1997, all chief law 
 90.6   enforcement officers shall establish and implement a written 
 90.7   policy governing the public disclosure of information on sex

 94.6   data under section 13.02, except that extended jurisdiction 
 94.7   juvenile data becomes public data under section 13.87,

 94.17     (b) No child may be detained in a juvenile secure detention 
 94.18  facility or shelter care facility longer than 36 hours, 
 94.19  excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, after being taken 
 94.20  into custody for a delinquent act as defined in section 260.015, 
 94.21  subdivision 5, unless a petition has been filed and the judge or 
 94.22  referee determines pursuant to section 260.172 that the child 
 94.23  shall remain in detention.  
 94.24     (c) No child may be detained in an adult jail or municipal 
 94.25  lockup longer than 24 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and 
 94.26  holidays, or longer than six hours in an adult jail or municipal 
 94.27  lockup in a standard metropolitan statistical area, after being

 94.29  260.015, subdivision 5, unless: 
 94.30     (1) a petition has been filed under section 260.131; and 
 94.31     (2) a judge or referee has determined under section 260.172

 94.34  may be detained in an adult jail or municipal lockup longer than

 95.5   detention of a child in an adult detention facility outside of a 
 95.6   standard metropolitan statistical area county is permissible if: 
 95.7      (i) the facility in which the child is detained is located 
 95.8   where conditions of distance to be traveled or other ground 
 95.9   transportation do not allow for court appearances within 24 
 95.10  hours.  A delay not to exceed 48 hours may be made under this 
 95.11  clause; or 
 95.12     (ii) the facility is located where conditions of safety 
 95.13  exist.  Time for an appearance may be delayed until 24 hours 
 95.14  after the time that conditions allow for reasonably safe 
 95.15  travel.  "Conditions of safety" include adverse life-threatening 
 95.16  weather conditions that do not allow for reasonably safe travel. 
 95.17     The continued detention of a child under clause (i) or (ii)

 95.21  shelter care facility longer than 72 hours, excluding Saturdays, 
 95.22  Sundays and holidays, unless a petition has been filed and the 
 95.23  judge or referee determines pursuant to section 260.172 that the

 95.25     (e) If a child described in paragraph (c) is to be detained 
 95.26  in a jail beyond 24 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and 
 95.27  holidays, the judge or referee, in accordance with rules and 
 95.28  procedures established by the commissioner of corrections, shall 
 95.29  notify the commissioner of the place of the detention and the 
 95.30  reasons therefor.  The commissioner shall thereupon assist the 
 95.31  court in the relocation of the child in an appropriate juvenile 
 95.32  secure detention facility or approved jail within the county or 
 95.33  elsewhere in the state, or in determining suitable 
 95.34  alternatives.  The commissioner shall direct that a child 
 95.35  detained in a jail be detained after eight days from and 
 95.36  including the date of the original detention order in an 
 96.1   approved juvenile secure detention facility with the approval of 
 96.2   the administrative authority of the facility.  If the court 
 96.3   refers the matter to the prosecuting authority pursuant to 
 96.4   section 260.125, notice to the commissioner shall not be

 96.18  at any time within 90 15 days of the filing of the court's 
 96.19  order, petition the court for a rehearing on the ground that new 
 96.20  evidence has been discovered affecting the advisability of the 
 96.21  court's original adjudication or disposition.  Upon a showing 
 96.22  that such evidence does exist the court shall order that a new 
 96.23  hearing be held within 30 days, unless the court extends this 
 96.24  time period for good cause shown within the 30-day period, and 
 96.25  shall make such disposition of the case as the facts and the

 96.32  under the continuing jurisdiction of the court for reasons other 
 96.33  than delinquency having committed a delinquent act or a juvenile 
 96.34  petty offense may not be adjudicated as a delinquent solely on

 96.36  order of the court.
