 13.58  Sec. 14.  LEGISLATIVE AUDIT COMMISSION      -0-          75,000 
 13.59  The legislative audit commission is 
 13.60  requested to direct the legislative 
 13.61  auditor to conduct a study or contract 
 13.62  to conduct a study of the costs that 
 13.63  criminal activity places on state and 
 13.64  local communities.  If the audit 
 13.65  commission approves the study, $75,000 
 13.66  is appropriated to the commission to 
 13.67  conduct the study in two phases.  This 
 14.1   appropriation is available until June 
 14.2   30, 2000. 
 14.3   In phase one, the auditor shall 
 14.4   investigate the feasibility of 
 14.5   conducting the research study and, at a 
 14.6   minimum, do the following: 
 14.7   (1) identify and review prior research 
 14.8   studies that have sought to assess the 
 14.9   direct and indirect costs of crime; 
 14.10  (2) evaluate the methodological 
 14.11  strengths and weaknesses of these prior 
 14.12  research studies; 
 14.13  (3) evaluate what types of data would 
 14.14  be needed to conduct such a study and 
 14.15  whether such data are reasonably 
 14.16  available; and 
 14.17  (4) make recommendations concerning how 
 14.18  a research study of the costs of crime 
 14.19  to Minnesota and its communities could 
 14.20  be defined and performed so as to 
 14.21  provide reliable information and 
 14.22  objective conclusions to policymakers 
 14.23  and participants in the criminal 
 14.24  justice system. 
 14.25  By March 15, 1999, the legislative 
 14.26  auditor shall report the results of 
 14.27  phase one of the study to the chairs 
 14.28  and ranking minority members of the 
 14.29  house and senate committees and 
 14.30  divisions having jurisdiction over 
 14.31  criminal justice policy and funding. 
 14.32  In phase two, the auditor shall focus 
 14.33  on both the direct costs to the state 
 14.34  and local governments of responding to, 
 14.35  prosecuting, and punishing criminal 
 14.36  offenders, but also the indirect costs 
 14.37  that criminal activity places on local 
 14.38  communities and their residents.  To 
 14.39  the extent possible, the study shall 
 14.40  compare, by offense type, the costs of 
 14.41  imprisoning an offender to the costs of 
 14.42  criminal behavior if the offender is 
 14.43  not incarcerated.  The auditor shall 
 14.44  report the findings of phase two of the 
 14.45  study to the chairs and ranking 
 14.46  minority members of the senate and 
 14.47  house committees and divisions having 
 14.48  jurisdiction over criminal justice 
 14.49  funding and policy by February 15, 2000.

 66.31  visitation with regard to minor children of the parties on a

 66.34  contested, findings under section 257.025, 518.17, or 518.175 
 66.35  are not required.  If the court finds that the safety of the 
 66.36  victim or the children will be jeopardized by unsupervised or 
 67.1   unrestricted visitation, the court shall condition or restrict 
 67.2   visitation as to time, place, duration, or supervision, or deny 
 67.3   visitation entirely, as needed to guard the safety of the victim 
 67.4   and the children.  The court's decision on custody and 
 67.5   visitation shall in no way delay the issuance of an order for 
 67.6   protection granting other reliefs provided for in this section; 
 67.7      (5) on the same basis as is provided in chapter 518, 
 67.8   establish temporary support for minor children or a spouse, and

 67.21  and expenditures made after the order is served or communicated 
 67.22  to the party restrained in open court; 
 67.23     (9) exclude the abusing party from the place of employment 
 67.24  of the petitioner, or otherwise limit access to the petitioner 
 67.25  by the abusing party at the petitioner's place of employment; 
 67.26     (10) order the abusing party to pay restitution to the 
 67.27  petitioner; 
 67.28     (11) order the continuance of all currently available 
 67.29  insurance coverage without change in coverage or beneficiary 
 67.30  designation; and 
 67.31     (12) order, in its discretion, other relief as it deems 
 67.32  necessary for the protection of a family or household member, 
 67.33  including orders or directives to the sheriff or, constable, or 
 67.34  other law enforcement or corrections officer as provided by this 
 67.35  section. 
 67.36     (b) Any relief granted by the order for protection shall be 
 68.1   for a fixed period not to exceed one year, except when the court 
 68.2   determines a longer fixed period is appropriate.  When a referee 
 68.3   presides at the hearing on the petition, the order granting 
 68.4   relief becomes effective upon the referee's signature. 
 68.5      (c) An order granting the relief authorized in paragraph 
 68.6   (a), clause (1), may not be vacated or modified in a proceeding 
 68.7   for dissolution of marriage or legal separation, except that the 
 68.8   court may hear a motion for modification of an order for 
 68.9   protection concurrently with a proceeding for dissolution of 
 68.10  marriage upon notice of motion and motion.  The notice required 
 68.11  by court rule shall not be waived.  If the proceedings are 
 68.12  consolidated and the motion to modify is granted, a separate 
 68.13  order for modification of an order for protection shall be 
 68.14  issued. 
 68.15     (d) An order granting the relief authorized in paragraph 
 68.16  (a), clause (2), is not voided by the admittance of the abusing 
 68.17  party into the dwelling from which the abusing party is excluded.
 68.18     (e) If a proceeding for dissolution of marriage or legal 
 68.19  separation is pending between the parties, the court shall

 70.20  section or a similar law of another state, the District of 
 70.21  Columbia, tribal lands, or United States territories restraining 
 70.22  the person or excluding the person from the residence or the 
 70.23  petitioner's place of employment, even if the violation of the 
 70.24  order did not take place in the presence of the peace officer, 
 70.25  if the existence of the order can be verified by the officer.  
 70.26  The person shall be held in custody for at least 36 hours, 
 70.27  excluding the day of arrest, Sundays, and holidays, unless the 
 70.28  person is released earlier by a judge or judicial officer.  A 
 70.29  peace officer acting in good faith and exercising due care in 
 70.30  making an arrest pursuant to this paragraph is immune from civil 
 70.31  liability that might result from the officer's actions. 
 70.32     (f) If the court finds that the respondent has violated an 
 70.33  order for protection and that there is reason to believe that 
 70.34  the respondent will commit a further violation of the provisions 
 70.35  of the order restraining the respondent from committing acts of 
 70.36  domestic abuse or excluding the respondent from the petitioner's 
 71.1   residence, the court may require the respondent to acknowledge 
 71.2   an obligation to comply with the order on the record.  The court 
 71.3   may require a bond sufficient to deter the respondent from 
 71.4   committing further violations of the order for protection, 
 71.5   considering the financial resources of the respondent, and not 
 71.6   to exceed $10,000.  If the respondent refuses to comply with an 
 71.7   order to acknowledge the obligation or post a bond under this 
 71.8   paragraph, the court shall commit the respondent to the county 
 71.9   jail during the term of the order for protection or until the 
 71.10  respondent complies with the order under this paragraph.  The 
 71.11  warrant must state the cause of commitment, with the sum and 
 71.12  time for which any bond is required.  If an order is issued 
 71.13  under this paragraph, the court may order the costs of the 
 71.14  contempt action, or any part of them, to be paid by the 
 71.15  respondent.  An order under this paragraph is appealable.  
 71.16     (g) Upon the filing of an affidavit by the petitioner, any 
 71.17  peace officer, or an interested party designated by the court, 
 71.18  alleging that the respondent has violated any order for 
 71.19  protection granted pursuant to this section or a similar law of 
 71.20  another state, the District of Columbia, tribal lands, or United 
 71.21  States territories, the court may issue an order to the 
 71.22  respondent, requiring the respondent to appear and show cause 
 71.23  within 14 days why the respondent should not be found in 
 71.24  contempt of court and punished therefor.  The hearing may be 
 71.25  held by the court in any county in which the petitioner or 
 71.26  respondent temporarily or permanently resides at the time of the 
 71.27  alleged violation, or in the county in which the alleged 
 71.28  violation occurred, if the petitioner and respondent do not 
 71.29  reside in this state.  The court also shall refer the violation 
 71.30  of the order for protection to the appropriate prosecuting 
 71.31  authority for possible prosecution under paragraph (b), (c), or 
 71.32  (d). 
 71.33     (h) If it is alleged that the respondent has violated an 
 71.34  order for protection issued under subdivision 6 or a similar law 
 71.35  of another state, the District of Columbia, tribal lands, or 
 71.36  United States territories, and the court finds that the order 
 72.1   has expired between the time of the alleged violation and the 
 72.2   court's hearing on the violation, the court may grant a new 
 72.3   order for protection under subdivision 6 based solely on the 
 72.4   respondent's alleged violation of the prior order, to be 
 72.5   effective until the hearing on the alleged violation of the 
 72.6   prior order.  If the court finds that the respondent has 
 72.7   violated the prior order, the relief granted in the new order 
 72.8   for protection shall be extended for a fixed period, not to 
 72.9   exceed one year, except when the court determines a longer fixed 
 72.10  period is appropriate. 
 72.11     (i) The admittance into petitioner's dwelling of an abusing 
 72.12  party excluded from the dwelling under an order for protection 
 72.13  is not a violation by the petitioner of the order for protection.
 72.14     A peace officer is not liable under section 609.43, clause 
 72.15  (1), for a failure to perform a duty required by paragraph (e). 
 72.16     (j) When a person is convicted under paragraph (b) or (c) 
 72.17  of violating an order for protection and the court determines 
 72.18  that the person used a firearm in any way during commission of 
 72.19  the violation, the court may order that the person is prohibited 
 72.20  from possessing any type of firearm for any period longer than 
 72.21  three years or for the remainder of the person's life.  A person 
 72.22  who violates this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.  
 72.23  At the time of the conviction, the court shall inform the 
 72.24  defendant whether and for how long the defendant is prohibited 
 72.25  from possessing a firearm and that it is a gross misdemeanor to 
 72.26  violate this paragraph.  The failure of the court to provide 
 72.27  this information to a defendant does not affect the 
 72.28  applicability of the firearm possession prohibition or the gross 
 72.29  misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 72.30     (k) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (j), when a 
 72.31  person is convicted under paragraph (b) or (c) of violating an 
 72.32  order for protection, the court shall inform the defendant that 
 72.33  the defendant is prohibited from possessing a pistol for three 
 72.34  years from the date of conviction and that it is a gross 
 72.35  misdemeanor offense to violate this prohibition.  The failure of 
 72.36  the court to provide this information to a defendant does not 
 73.1   affect the applicability of the pistol possession prohibition or 
 73.2   the gross misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 73.3      (l) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (j), a person 
 73.4   is not entitled to possess a pistol if the person has been 
 73.5   convicted under paragraph (b) or (c) after August 1, 1996, of 
 73.6   violating an order for protection, unless three years have 
 73.7   elapsed from the date of conviction and, during that time, the 
 73.8   person has not been convicted of any other violation of this 
 73.9   section.  Property rights may not be abated but access may be 
 73.10  restricted by the courts.  A person who possesses a pistol in 
 73.11  violation of this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. 
 73.12     (m) If the court determines that a person convicted under 
 73.13  paragraph (b) or (c) of violating an order for protection owns 
 73.14  or possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the 
 73.15  commission of the violation, it shall order that the firearm be 
 73.16  summarily forfeited under section 609.5316, subdivision 3. 
 73.17     Sec. 6.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section 
 73.18  609.2244, subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 73.19     Subdivision 1.  [INVESTIGATION.] A presentence domestic 
 73.20  abuse investigation must be conducted and a report submitted to 
 73.21  the court by the corrections agency responsible for conducting 
 73.22  the investigation when: 
 73.23     (1) a defendant is convicted of an offense described in 
 73.24  section 518B.01, subdivision 2; or 
 73.25     (2) a defendant is arrested for committing an offense 
 73.26  described in section 518B.01, subdivision 2, but is convicted of 
 73.27  another offense arising out of the same circumstances 
 73.28  surrounding the arrest; or 
 73.29     (3) a defendant is convicted of a violation against a 
 73.30  family or household member of:  (a) an order for protection 
 73.31  under section 518B.01; (b) a harassment restraining order under 
 73.32  section 609.748; (c) section 609.79, subdivision 1; or (d)

 73.36     Subd. 4.  [DOMESTIC ABUSE INVESTIGATION FEE.] When the 
 74.1   court sentences a person convicted of an offense described in 
 74.2   section 518B.01, subdivision 2 1, the court shall impose a 
 74.3   domestic abuse investigation fee of at least $50 but not more 
 74.4   than $125.  This fee must be imposed whether the sentence is 
 74.5   executed, stayed, or suspended.  The court may not waive payment 
 74.6   or authorize payment of the fee in installments unless it makes 
 74.7   written findings on the record that the convicted person is 
 74.8   indigent or that the fee would create undue hardship for the 
 74.9   convicted person or that person's immediate family.  The person 
 74.10  convicted of the offense and ordered to pay the fee shall pay 
 74.11  the fee to the county corrections department or other designated 
 74.12  agencies conducting the investigation. 
 74.13     Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.748, 
 74.14  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 74.15     Subd. 3.  [CONTENTS OF PETITION; HEARING; NOTICE.] (a) A 
 74.16  petition for relief must allege facts sufficient to show the 
 74.17  following:  
 74.18     (1) the name of the alleged harassment victim; 
 74.19     (2) the name of the respondent; and 
 74.20     (3) that the respondent has engaged in harassment.

 74.24  clerical assistance to help with the writing and filing of a 
 74.25  petition under this section and shall advise the petitioner of 
 74.26  the right to sue in forma pauperis under section 563.01.  Upon 
 74.27  receipt of the petition, the court shall order a hearing, which 
 74.28  must be held not later than 14 days from the date of the order.  
 74.29  Personal service must be made upon the respondent not less than 
 74.30  five days before the hearing.  If personal service cannot be 
 74.31  completed in time to give the respondent the minimum notice 
 74.32  required under this paragraph, the court may set a new hearing 
 74.33  date. 
 74.34     (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), the order for a hearing 
 74.35  and a temporary order issued under subdivision 4 may be served 
 74.36  on the respondent by means of a one-week published notice under 
 75.1   section 645.11, if: 
 75.2      (1) the petitioner files an affidavit with the court 
 75.3   stating that an attempt at personal service made by a sheriff 
 75.4   was unsuccessful because the respondent is avoiding service by 
 75.5   concealment or otherwise; and 
 75.6      (2) a copy of the petition and order for hearing and any 
 75.7   temporary restraining order has been mailed to the respondent at 
 75.8   the respondent's residence or place of business, if the

 75.11     (c) Regardless of the method of service, if the respondent

 75.13  notice of the pendency of the case and of the time and place of 
 75.14  the hearing served by mail at the last known address upon any 
 75.15  parent or guardian of the juvenile respondent who is not the 
 75.16  petitioner. 
 75.17     Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.748, 
 75.18  subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 75.19     Subd. 4.  [TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER.] (a) The court may 
 75.20  issue a temporary restraining order ordering the respondent to 
 75.21  cease or avoid the harassment of another person or to have no 
 75.22  contact with that person if the petitioner files a petition in 
 75.23  compliance with subdivision 3 and if the court finds reasonable 
 75.24  grounds to believe that the respondent has engaged in harassment.
 75.25     (b) Notice need not be given to the respondent before the 
 75.26  court issues a temporary restraining order under this 
 75.27  subdivision.  A copy of the restraining order must be served on 
 75.28  the respondent along with the order for hearing and petition, as 
 75.29  provided in subdivision 3.  If the respondent is a juvenile, 
 75.30  whenever possible, a copy of the restraining order, along with 
 75.31  notice of the pendency of the case and the time and place of the 
 75.32  hearing, shall also be served by mail at the last known address 
 75.33  upon any parent or guardian of the juvenile respondent who is 
 75.34  not the petitioner.  A temporary restraining order may be 
 75.35  entered only against the respondent named in the petition.  
 75.36     (c) The temporary restraining order is in effect until a 
 76.1   hearing is held on the issuance of a restraining order under 
 76.2   subdivision 5.  The court shall hold the hearing on the issuance 
 76.3   of a restraining order within 14 days after the temporary 
 76.4   restraining order is issued unless (1) the time period is 
 76.5   extended upon written consent of the parties; or (2) the time 
 76.6   period is extended by the court for one additional 14-day period 
 76.7   upon a showing that the respondent has not been served with a 
 76.8   copy of the temporary restraining order despite the exercise of 
 76.9   due diligence or if service is made by published notice under 
 76.10  subdivision 3 and the petitioner files the affidavit required 
 76.11  under that subdivision.  
 76.12     Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 634.20, is 
 76.13  amended to read: 
 76.14     634.20 [EVIDENCE OF PRIOR CONDUCT.] 
 76.15     Evidence of similar prior conduct by the accused against 
 76.16  the victim of domestic abuse, as defined under section 518B.01, 
 76.17  subdivision 2, including evidence of a violation against a 
 76.18  family or household member of: 
 76.19     (1) an order for protection under section 518B.01;

 76.21     (3) a harassment restraining order under section 609.748; 
 76.22  or 
 76.23     (4) section 609.79, subdivision 1; 
 76.24  is admissible unless the probative value is substantially 
 76.25  outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice, confusion of the 
 76.26  issue, or misleading the jury, or by considerations of undue 
 76.27  delay, waste of time, or needless presentation of cumulative 
 76.28  evidence. 
 76.29     Sec. 11.  Laws 1997, chapter 239, article 10, section 1, is 
 76.30  amended to read: 
 76.31     Section 1.  [PILOT PROGRAM.] 
 76.32     Actions under sections 2 to 26 are limited to a pilot 
 76.33  program in the 4th judicial district for the period June 1, 
 76.34  1998, through July 31, 1999 2000.  At the conclusion of the 
 76.35  pilot period, the 4th judicial district shall report to the 
 76.36  legislature on the number of petitions filed under sections 2 to 
 77.1   26, the relationship of the parties, and the disposition of each 
 77.2   petition. 
 77.3      Sec. 12.  Laws 1997, chapter 239, article 10, section 19, 
 77.4   is amended to read: 
 77.5      Sec. 19.  [VIOLATION OF AN ORDER FOR PROTECTION/MINOR 
 77.6   RESPONDENT; PENALTIES.] 
 77.7      Subdivision 1.  [AFFIDAVIT; ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE.] The 
 77.8   petitioner, a peace officer, or an interested party designated 
 77.9   by the court may file an affidavit with the court alleging that 
 77.10  a minor respondent has violated an order for protection/minor 
 77.11  respondent under sections 2 to 26.  The court may order the 
 77.12  minor respondent to appear and show cause within 14 days why the 
 77.13  minor respondent should not be found in contempt of court and 
 77.14  punished for the contempt.  The court may also order the minor 
 77.15  to participate in counseling or other appropriate programs 
 77.16  selected by the court.  The hearing may be held by the court in 
 77.17  any county in which the petitioner or minor respondent 
 77.18  temporarily or permanently resides at the time of the alleged 
 77.19  violation. or in the county in which the alleged violation 
 77.20  occurred, if the petitioner and respondent do not reside in this 
 77.21  state.  The court also shall refer the violation of the order 
 77.22  for protection/minor respondent to the county attorney for 
 77.23  possible prosecution under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), 
 77.24  or (d), or if the respondent is an adult at the time of the 
 77.25  alleged violation, to the appropriate prosecuting authority for 
 77.26  possible prosecution under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 518B. 
 77.27     Subd. 1a.  [PENALTIES.] (a) A person who violates an order 
 77.28  for protection/minor respondent issued under this section is 
 77.29  subject to the penalties provided in paragraphs (b) to (d), 
 77.30  except that if the respondent or person to be restrained is over 
 77.31  the age of 18 at the time of the violation, Minnesota Statutes, 
 77.32  section 518B.01, subdivision 14, shall apply.  If the respondent 
 77.33  is still a minor at the time of the violation, the laws relating 
 77.34  to delinquency prosecution and disposition in juvenile court 
 77.35  shall apply, consistent with this section and notwithstanding 
 77.36  the provisions of Minnesota Statutes, section 260.015, 
 78.1   subdivision 21. 
 78.2      (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (c) and (d), 
 78.3   whenever an order for protection/minor respondent is granted 
 78.4   under this section or a similar law of another state, and the 
 78.5   respondent or person to be restrained knows of the order, 
 78.6   violation of the order for protection/minor respondent is a 
 78.7   misdemeanor.  Upon a misdemeanor adjudication of delinquency, 
 78.8   the respondent must be ordered to participate in counseling or 
 78.9   other appropriate programs selected by the court.  A violation 
 78.10  of an order for protection/minor respondent shall also 
 78.11  constitute contempt of court and be subject to the penalties 
 78.12  provided in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 588. 
 78.13     (c) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who knowingly 
 78.14  violates this subdivision during the time period between a 
 78.15  previous adjudication of delinquency under this subdivision; 
 78.16  Minnesota Statutes, sections 609.221 to 609.224; 609.2242; 
 78.17  609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 609.748, subdivision 6; 609.749; or 
 78.18  a similar law of another state; and the end of the five years 
 78.19  following discharge from sentence for that adjudication of 
 78.20  delinquency.  Upon a gross misdemeanor adjudication of 
 78.21  delinquency under this paragraph, the respondent must be ordered 
 78.22  to participate in counseling or other appropriate programs 
 78.23  selected by the court. 
 78.24     (d) A person is guilty of a felony if the person knowingly 
 78.25  violates this subdivision: 
 78.26     (1) during the time period between the first of two or more 
 78.27  previous adjudications of delinquency under this section or 
 78.28  Minnesota Statutes, sections 609.221 to 609.224; 609.2242; 
 78.29  609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 609.748, subdivision 6; 609.749; or 
 78.30  a similar law of another state; and the end of the five years 
 78.31  following discharge from sentence for that adjudication of 
 78.32  delinquency; or 
 78.33     (2) while possessing a dangerous weapon, as defined in 
 78.34  Minnesota Statutes, section 609.02, subdivision 6. 
 78.35  Upon a felony adjudication of delinquency under this paragraph, 
 78.36  the court shall order, at a minimum, that the respondent 
 79.1   participate in counseling or other appropriate programs selected 
 79.2   by the court. 
 79.3      (e) A peace officer shall arrest without a warrant and take 
 79.4   into custody a person whom the peace officer has probable cause 
 79.5   to believe has violated an order granted under this section, 
 79.6   Minnesota Statutes, chapter 518B, or a similar law of another 
 79.7   state restraining the person or excluding the person from the 
 79.8   residence or the petitioner's place of employment, even if the 
 79.9   violation of the order did not take place in the presence of the 
 79.10  peace officer, if the existence of the order can be verified by 
 79.11  the officer.  The person shall be held in custody for at least 
 79.12  36 hours, excluding the day of arrest, Sundays, and holidays, 
 79.13  unless the person is released earlier by a judge or judicial 
 79.14  officer.  A peace officer acting in good faith and exercising 
 79.15  due care in making an arrest pursuant to this paragraph is 
 79.16  immune from civil liability that might result from the officer's 
 79.17  actions.  A peace officer is not liable under Minnesota 
 79.18  Statutes, section 609.43, clause (1), for a failure to perform a 
 79.19  duty required by this paragraph. 
 79.20     (f) If the court finds that the respondent has violated an 
 79.21  order for protection/minor respondent and that there is reason 
 79.22  to believe that the respondent will commit a further violation 
 79.23  of the provisions of the order restraining the respondent from 
 79.24  committing acts of domestic abuse or excluding the respondent 
 79.25  from the petitioner's residence, the court may require the 
 79.26  respondent to acknowledge an obligation to comply with the order 
 79.27  on the record. 
 79.28     Subd. 2.  [EXTENSION OF PROTECTION ORDER.] If it is alleged 
 79.29  that a minor respondent has violated an order for 
 79.30  protection/minor respondent issued under sections 2 to 26 and 
 79.31  the court finds that the order has expired between the time of 
 79.32  the alleged violation and the court's hearing on the violation, 
 79.33  the court may grant a new order for protection/minor respondent 
 79.34  based solely on the minor respondent's alleged violation of the 
 79.35  prior order, to be effective until the hearing on the alleged 
 79.36  violation of the prior order.  The relief granted in the new 
 80.1   order for protection/minor respondent must be extended for a 
 80.2   fixed period, not to exceed one year, except when the court 
 80.3   determines a longer fixed period is appropriate. 
 80.4      Subd. 3.  [ADMITTANCE INTO DWELLING.] Admittance into the 
 80.5   petitioner's dwelling of an abusing party excluded from the 
 80.6   dwelling under an order for protection/minor respondent is not a 
 80.7   violation by the petitioner of the order. 
 80.8      Subd. 4.  [POSSESSION OF FIREARM.] (a) When a person is 
 80.9   adjudicated delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), 
 80.10  or (d), of violating an order for protection/minor respondent 
 80.11  and the court determines that the person used a firearm in any 
 80.12  way during commission of the violation, the court may order that 
 80.13  the person is prohibited from possessing any type of firearm for 
 80.14  any period longer than three years or for the remainder of the 
 80.15  person's life.  A person who violates this paragraph is guilty 
 80.16  of a gross misdemeanor.  At the time of the adjudication of 
 80.17  delinquency, the court shall inform the respondent whether and 
 80.18  for how long the respondent is prohibited from possessing a 
 80.19  firearm and that it is a gross misdemeanor to violate this 
 80.20  paragraph.  The failure of the court to provide this information 
 80.21  to a respondent does not affect the applicability of the firearm 
 80.22  possession prohibition or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that 
 80.23  respondent. 
 80.24     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), when a 
 80.25  person is adjudicated delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph 
 80.26  (b), (c), or (d), of violating an order for protection/minor 
 80.27  respondent, the court shall inform the respondent that the 
 80.28  respondent is prohibited from possessing a pistol for three 
 80.29  years from the date of adjudication of delinquency and that it 
 80.30  is a gross misdemeanor offense to violate this prohibition.  The 
 80.31  failure of the court to provide this information to a respondent 
 80.32  does not affect the applicability of the pistol possession 
 80.33  prohibition or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that respondent. 
 80.34     (c) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), a person 
 80.35  is not entitled to possess a pistol if the person has been 
 80.36  adjudicated delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), 
 81.1   or (d), of violating an order for protection/minor respondent, 
 81.2   unless three years have elapsed from the date of adjudication of 
 81.3   delinquency and, during that time, the person has not been 
 81.4   adjudicated delinquent or convicted of any other violation of 
 81.5   this section or Minnesota Statutes, chapter 518B.  Property 
 81.6   rights may not be abated but access may be restricted by the 
 81.7   courts.  A person who possesses a pistol in violation of this 
 81.8   paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. 
 81.9      (d) If the court determines that a person adjudicated 
 81.10  delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), or (d), of 
 81.11  violating an order for protection/minor respondent owns or 
 81.12  possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the commission 
 81.13  of the violation, it shall order that the firearm be summarily 
 81.14  forfeited under Minnesota Statutes, section 609.5316, 
 81.15  subdivision 3. 
 81.16     Sec. 13.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
 81.17     Sections 8, 9, 11, and 12 are effective June 1, 1998, and 
 81.18  apply to offenses committed on or after that date.  The 
 81.19  remaining sections in this article are effective August 1, 1998, 
 81.20  and apply to offenses committed on or after that date. 
 81.21                             ARTICLE 6 
 81.22                       SENTENCING PROVISIONS 
 81.23     Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.095, is 
 81.24  amended to read: 
 81.25     609.095 [LIMITS OF SENTENCES.] 
 81.26     (a) The legislature has the exclusive authority to define 
 81.27  crimes and offenses and the range of the sentences or 
 81.28  punishments for their violation.  No other or different sentence 
 81.29  or punishment shall be imposed for the commission of a crime 
 81.30  than is authorized by this chapter or other applicable law.  
 81.31     (b) Except as provided in section 152.18 or upon agreement 
 81.32  of the parties, a court may not refuse to adjudicate the guilt 
 81.33  of a defendant who tenders a guilty plea in accordance with 
 81.34  Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure, rule 15, or who has been 
 81.35  found guilty by a court or jury following a trial. 
 81.36     (c) Paragraph (b) does not supersede Minnesota Rules of 
 82.1   Criminal Procedure, rule 26.04. 
 82.2      Sec. 2.  [LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE.] 
 82.3      Sections 3 to 7 recodify and clarify current laws relating 
 82.4   to increased sentences for certain dangerous or repeat offenders 
 82.5   in order to group them together near the beginning of the 
 82.6   criminal code.  This recodification aims to unify these various 
 82.7   increased sentence provisions to facilitate their use and is not 
 82.8   intended to result in any substantive change in the recodified 
 82.9   sections. 
 82.10     Sec. 3.  [609.106] [HEINOUS CRIMES.] 
 82.11     Subdivision 1.  [TERMS.] (a) As used in this section, 
 82.12  "heinous crime" means:  
 82.13     (1) a violation or attempted violation of section 609.185 
 82.14  or 609.19; 
 82.15     (2) a violation of section 609.195 or 609.221; or 
 82.16     (3) a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344, if 
 82.17  the offense was committed with force or violence. 
 82.18     (b) "Previous conviction" means a conviction in Minnesota 
 82.19  for a heinous crime or a conviction elsewhere for conduct that 
 82.20  would have been a heinous crime under this chapter if committed 
 82.21  in Minnesota.  The term includes any conviction that occurred 
 82.22  before the commission of the present offense of conviction, but 
 82.23  does not include a conviction if 15 years have elapsed since the 
 82.24  person was discharged from the sentence imposed for the offense. 
 82.25     Subd. 2.  [LIFE WITHOUT RELEASE.] The court shall sentence 
 82.26  a person to life imprisonment without possibility of release 
 82.27  under the following circumstances: 
 82.28     (1) the person is convicted of first degree murder under 
 82.29  section 609.185, clause (2) or (4); or 
 82.30     (2) the person is convicted of first degree murder under 
 82.31  section 609.185, clause (1), (3), (5), or (6), and the court 
 82.32  determines on the record at the time of sentencing that the 
 82.33  person has one or more previous convictions for a heinous crime. 
 82.34     Sec. 4.  [609.107] [MANDATORY PENALTY FOR CERTAIN 
 82.35  MURDERERS.] 
 82.36     When a person is convicted of violating section 609.19 or 
 83.1   609.195, the court shall sentence the person to the statutory 
 83.2   maximum sentence for the offense if the person was previously 
 83.3   convicted of a heinous crime as defined in section 609.106 and 
 83.4   15 years have not elapsed since the person was discharged from 
 83.5   the sentence imposed for that conviction.  The court may not 
 83.6   stay the imposition or execution of the sentence, 
 83.7   notwithstanding section 609.135. 
 83.8      Sec. 5.  [609.108] [MANDATORY INCREASED SENTENCES FOR 
 83.9   CERTAIN PATTERNED AND PREDATORY SEX OFFENDERS; NO PRIOR 
 83.10  CONVICTION REQUIRED.] 
 83.11     Subdivision 1.  [MANDATORY INCREASED SENTENCE.] (a) A court 
 83.12  shall commit a person to the commissioner of corrections for a 
 83.13  period of time that is not less than double the presumptive 
 83.14  sentence under the sentencing guidelines and not more than the 
 83.15  statutory maximum, or if the statutory maximum is less than 
 83.16  double the presumptive sentence, for a period of time that is 
 83.17  equal to the statutory maximum, if: 
 83.18     (1) the court is imposing an executed sentence, based on a 
 83.19  sentencing guidelines presumptive imprisonment sentence or a 
 83.20  dispositional departure for aggravating circumstances or a 
 83.21  mandatory minimum sentence, on a person convicted of committing 
 83.22  or attempting to commit a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, 
 83.23  609.344, or 609.345, or on a person convicted of committing or 
 83.24  attempting to commit any other crime listed in subdivision 3 if 
 83.25  it reasonably appears to the court that the crime was motivated 
 83.26  by the offender's sexual impulses or was part of a predatory 
 83.27  pattern of behavior that had criminal sexual conduct as its 
 83.28  goal; 
 83.29     (2) the court finds that the offender is a danger to public 
 83.30  safety; and 
 83.31     (3) the court finds that the offender needs long-term 
 83.32  treatment or supervision beyond the presumptive term of 
 83.33  imprisonment and supervised release.  The finding must be based 
 83.34  on a professional assessment by an examiner experienced in 
 83.35  evaluating sex offenders that concludes that the offender is a 
 83.36  patterned sex offender.  The assessment must contain the facts 
 84.1   upon which the conclusion is based, with reference to the 
 84.2   offense history of the offender or the severity of the current 
 84.3   offense, the social history of the offender, and the results of 
 84.4   an examination of the offender's mental status unless the 
 84.5   offender refuses to be examined.  The conclusion may not be 
 84.6   based on testing alone.  A patterned sex offender is one whose 
 84.7   criminal sexual behavior is so engrained that the risk of 
 84.8   reoffending is great without intensive psychotherapeutic 
 84.9   intervention or other long-term controls. 
 84.10     (b) The court shall consider imposing a sentence under this 
 84.11  section whenever a person is convicted of violating section 
 84.12  609.342 or 609.343. 
 84.13     Subd. 2.  [INCREASED STATUTORY MAXIMUM.] If the factfinder 
 84.14  determines, at the time of the trial or the guilty plea, that a 
 84.15  predatory offense was motivated by, committed in the course of, 
 84.16  or committed in furtherance of sexual contact or penetration, as 
 84.17  defined in section 609.341, and the court is imposing a sentence 
 84.18  under subdivision 1, the statutory maximum imprisonment penalty 
 84.19  for the offense is 40 years, notwithstanding the statutory 
 84.20  maximum imprisonment penalty otherwise provided for the offense. 
 84.21     Subd. 3.  [PREDATORY CRIME.] A predatory crime is a felony 
 84.22  violation of section 609.185, 609.19, 609.195, 609.20, 609.205, 
 84.23  609.221, 609.222, 609.223, 609.24, 609.245, 609.25, 609.255, 
 84.24  609.342, 609.343, 609.344, 609.345, 609.365, 609.498, 609.561, 
 84.25  or 609.582, subdivision 1. 
 84.26     Subd. 4.  [DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY.] The court shall base 
 84.27  its finding that the offender is a danger to public safety on 
 84.28  any of the following factors: 
 84.29     (1) the crime involved an aggravating factor that would 
 84.30  justify a durational departure from the presumptive sentence 
 84.31  under the sentencing guidelines; 
 84.32     (2) the offender previously committed or attempted to 
 84.33  commit a predatory crime or a violation of section 609.224 or 
 84.34  609.2242, including: 
 84.35     (i) an offense committed as a juvenile that would have been 
 84.36  a predatory crime or a violation of section 609.224 or 609.2242 
 85.1   if committed by an adult; or 
 85.2      (ii) a violation or attempted violation of a similar law of 
 85.3   any other state or the United States; or 
 85.4      (3) the offender planned or prepared for the crime prior to 
 85.5   its commission. 
 85.6      Subd. 5.  [DEPARTURE FROM GUIDELINES.] A sentence imposed 
 85.7   under subdivision 1 is a departure from the sentencing 
 85.8   guidelines. 
 85.9      Subd. 6.  [CONDITIONAL RELEASE.] At the time of sentencing 
 85.10  under subdivision 1, the court shall provide that after the 
 85.11  offender has completed the sentence imposed, less any good time 
 85.12  earned by an offender whose crime was committed before August 1, 
 85.13  1993, the commissioner of corrections shall place the offender 
 85.14  on conditional release for the remainder of the statutory 
 85.15  maximum period, or for ten years, whichever is longer. 
 85.16     The conditions of release may include successful completion 
 85.17  of treatment and aftercare in a program approved by the 
 85.18  commissioner, satisfaction of the release conditions specified 
 85.19  in section 244.05, subdivision 6, and any other conditions the 
 85.20  commissioner considers appropriate.  Before the offender is 
 85.21  released, the commissioner shall notify the sentencing court, 
 85.22  the prosecutor in the jurisdiction where the offender was 
 85.23  sentenced, and the victim of the offender's crime, where 
 85.24  available, of the terms of the offender's conditional release.  
 85.25  If the offender fails to meet any condition of release, the 
 85.26  commissioner may revoke the offender's conditional release and 
 85.27  order that the offender serve all or a part of the remaining 
 85.28  portion of the conditional release term in prison.  The 
 85.29  commissioner shall not dismiss the offender from supervision 
 85.30  before the conditional release term expires. 
 85.31     Conditional release granted under this subdivision is 
 85.32  governed by provisions relating to supervised release, except as 
 85.33  otherwise provided in this subdivision, section 244.04, 
 85.34  subdivision 1, or 244.05. 
 85.35     Subd. 7.  [COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONS.] The commissioner 
 85.36  shall pay the cost of treatment of a person released under 
 86.1   subdivision 6.  This section does not require the commissioner 
 86.2   to accept or retain an offender in a treatment program. 
 86.3      Sec. 6.  [609.109] [PRESUMPTIVE AND MANDATORY SENTENCES FOR 
 86.4   REPEAT SEX OFFENDERS.] 
 86.5      Subdivision 1.  [DEFINITION; CONVICTION OF OFFENSE.] For 
 86.6   purposes of this section, "offense" means a completed offense or 
 86.7   an attempt to commit an offense.  
 86.8      Subd. 2.  [PRESUMPTIVE EXECUTED SENTENCE.] Except as 
 86.9   provided in subdivision 3 or 4, if a person is convicted under 
 86.10  sections 609.342 to 609.345, within 15 years of a previous sex 
 86.11  offense conviction, the court shall commit the defendant to the 
 86.12  commissioner of corrections for not less than three years, nor 
 86.13  more than the maximum sentence provided by law for the offense 
 86.14  for which convicted, notwithstanding the provisions of sections 
 86.15  242.19, 243.05, 609.11, 609.12, and 609.135.  The court may stay 
 86.16  the execution of the sentence imposed under this subdivision 
 86.17  only if it finds that a professional assessment indicates the 
 86.18  offender is accepted by and can respond to treatment at a 
 86.19  long-term inpatient program exclusively treating sex offenders 
 86.20  and approved by the commissioner of corrections.  If the court 
 86.21  stays the execution of a sentence, it shall include the 
 86.22  following as conditions of probation:  
 86.23     (1) incarceration in a local jail or workhouse; and 
 86.24     (2) a requirement that the offender successfully complete 
 86.25  the treatment program and aftercare as directed by the court. 
 86.26     Subd. 3.  [MANDATORY LIFE SENTENCE.] (a) The court shall 
 86.27  sentence a person to imprisonment for life, notwithstanding the 
 86.28  statutory maximum sentence under section 609.342, if: 
 86.29     (1) the person has been indicted by a grand jury under this 
 86.30  subdivision; 
 86.31     (2) the person is convicted under section 609.342; and 
 86.32     (3) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 86.33  sentencing that any of the following circumstances exists: 
 86.34     (i) the person has previously been sentenced under section 
 86.35  609.1095; 
 86.36     (ii) the person has one previous sex offense conviction for 
 87.1   a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344 that 
 87.2   occurred before August 1, 1989, for which the person was 
 87.3   sentenced to prison in an upward durational departure from the 
 87.4   sentencing guidelines that resulted in a sentence at least twice 
 87.5   as long as the presumptive sentence; or 
 87.6      (iii) the person has two previous sex offense convictions 
 87.7   under section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344. 
 87.8      (b) Notwithstanding subdivision 2 and section 609.342, 
 87.9   subdivision 3, the court may not stay imposition of the sentence 
 87.10  required by this subdivision. 
 87.11     Subd. 4.  [MANDATORY 30-YEAR SENTENCE.] (a) The court shall 
 87.12  commit a person to the commissioner of corrections for not less 
 87.13  than 30 years, notwithstanding the statutory maximum sentence 
 87.14  under section 609.343, if: 
 87.15     (1) the person is convicted under section 609.342, 
 87.16  subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); or 609.343, 
 87.17  subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); and 
 87.18     (2) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 87.19  sentencing that:  
 87.20     (i) the crime involved an aggravating factor that would 
 87.21  provide grounds for an upward departure under the sentencing 
 87.22  guidelines other than the aggravating factor applicable to 
 87.23  repeat criminal sexual conduct convictions; and 
 87.24     (ii) the person has a previous sex offense conviction under 
 87.25  section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344. 
 87.26     (b) Notwithstanding subdivision 2 and sections 609.342, 
 87.27  subdivision 3; and 609.343, subdivision 3, the court may not 
 87.28  stay imposition or execution of the sentence required by this 
 87.29  subdivision. 
 87.30     Subd. 5.  [PREVIOUS SEX OFFENSE CONVICTIONS.] For the 
 87.31  purposes of this section, a conviction is considered a previous 
 87.32  sex offense conviction if the person was convicted of a sex 
 87.33  offense before the commission of the present offense of 
 87.34  conviction.  A person has two previous sex offense convictions 
 87.35  only if the person was convicted and sentenced for a sex offense 
 87.36  committed after the person was earlier convicted and sentenced 
 88.1   for a sex offense, both convictions preceded the commission of 
 88.2   the present offense of conviction, and 15 years have not elapsed 
 88.3   since the person was discharged from the sentence imposed for 
 88.4   the second conviction.  A "sex offense" is a violation of 
 88.5   sections 609.342 to 609.345 or any similar statute of the United 
 88.6   States, this state, or any other state. 
 88.7      Subd. 6.  [MINIMUM DEPARTURE FOR SEX OFFENDERS.] The court 
 88.8   shall sentence a person to at least twice the presumptive 
 88.9   sentence recommended by the sentencing guidelines if: 
 88.10     (1) the person is convicted under section 609.342, 
 88.11  subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); 609.343, 
 88.12  subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); or 609.344, 
 88.13  subdivision 1, clause (c) or (d); and 
 88.14     (2) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 88.15  sentencing that the crime involved an aggravating factor that 
 88.16  would provide grounds for an upward departure under the 
 88.17  sentencing guidelines. 
 88.18     Subd. 7.  [CONDITIONAL RELEASE OF SEX OFFENDERS.] (a) 
 88.19  Notwithstanding the statutory maximum sentence otherwise 
 88.20  applicable to the offense or any provision of the sentencing 
 88.21  guidelines, when a court sentences a person to prison for a 
 88.22  violation of section 609.342, 609.343, 609.344, or 609.345, the 
 88.23  court shall provide that after the person has completed the 
 88.24  sentence imposed, the commissioner of corrections shall place 
 88.25  the person on conditional release.  If the person was convicted 
 88.26  for a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, 609.344, or 
 88.27  609.345, the person shall be placed on conditional release for 
 88.28  five years, minus the time the person served on supervised 
 88.29  release.  If the person was convicted for a violation of one of 
 88.30  those sections a second or subsequent time, or sentenced under 
 88.31  subdivision 6 to a mandatory departure, the person shall be 
 88.32  placed on conditional release for ten years, minus the time the 
 88.33  person served on supervised release. 
 88.34     (b) The conditions of release may include successful 
 88.35  completion of treatment and aftercare in a program approved by 
 88.36  the commissioner, satisfaction of the release conditions 
 89.1   specified in section 244.05, subdivision 6, and any other 
 89.2   conditions the commissioner considers appropriate.  If the 
 89.3   offender fails to meet any condition of release, the 
 89.4   commissioner may revoke the offender's conditional release and 
 89.5   order that the offender serve the remaining portion of the 
 89.6   conditional release term in prison.  The commissioner shall not 
 89.7   dismiss the offender from supervision before the conditional 
 89.8   release term expires. 
 89.9      Conditional release under this subdivision is governed by 
 89.10  provisions relating to supervised release, except as otherwise 
 89.11  provided in this subdivision, section 244.04, subdivision 1, or 
 89.12  244.05. 
 89.13     (c) The commissioner shall pay the cost of treatment of a 
 89.14  person released under this subdivision.  This section does not 
 89.15  require the commissioner to accept or retain an offender in a 
 89.16  treatment program. 
 89.17     Sec. 7.  [609.1095] [INCREASED SENTENCES FOR CERTAIN 
 89.18  DANGEROUS AND REPEAT FELONY OFFENDERS.] 
 89.19     Subdivision 1.  [DEFINITIONS.] (a) As used in this section,

 89.22  recorded by the court:  a plea of guilty, a verdict of guilty by 
 89.23  a jury, or a finding of guilty by the court.  The term includes 
 89.24  a conviction by any court in Minnesota or another jurisdiction.  
 89.25     (c) "Prior conviction" means a conviction that occurred 
 89.26  before the offender committed the next felony resulting in a 
 89.27  conviction and before the offense for which the offender is 
 89.28  being sentenced under this section. 
 89.29     (d) "Violent crime" means a violation of or an attempt or

 90.6      Subd. 2.  [INCREASED SENTENCES FOR DANGEROUS OFFENDER WHO 
 90.7   COMMITS A THIRD VIOLENT CRIME.] Whenever a person is convicted 
 90.8   of a violent crime that is a felony, and the judge is imposing 
 90.9   an executed sentence based on a sentencing guidelines 
 90.10  presumptive imprisonment sentence, the judge may impose an 
 90.11  aggravated durational departure from the presumptive 
 90.12  imprisonment sentence up to the statutory maximum sentence if 
 90.13  the offender was at least 18 years old at the time the felony 
 90.14  was committed, and: 
 90.15     (1) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 90.16  sentencing that the offender has two or more prior convictions 
 90.17  for violent crimes; and 
 90.18     (2) the court finds that the offender is a danger to public 
 90.19  safety and specifies on the record the basis for the finding, 
 90.20  which may include: 
 90.21     (i) the offender's past criminal behavior, such as the 
 90.22  offender's high frequency rate of criminal activity or juvenile 
 90.23  adjudications, or long involvement in criminal activity 
 90.24  including juvenile adjudications; or 
 90.25     (ii) the fact that the present offense of conviction 
 90.26  involved an aggravating factor that would justify a durational 
 90.27  departure under the sentencing guidelines. 
 90.28     Subd. 3.  [MANDATORY SENTENCE FOR DANGEROUS OFFENDER WHO 
 90.29  COMMITS A THIRD VIOLENT FELONY.] (a) Unless a longer mandatory 
 90.30  minimum sentence is otherwise required by law or the court 
 90.31  imposes a longer aggravated durational departure under 
 90.32  subdivision 2, a person who is convicted of a violent crime that 
 90.33  is a felony must be committed to the commissioner of corrections 
 90.34  for a mandatory sentence of at least the length of the 
 90.35  presumptive sentence under the sentencing guidelines if the 
 90.36  court determines on the record at the time of sentencing that 
 91.1   the person has two or more prior felony convictions for violent 
 91.2   crimes.  The court shall impose and execute the prison sentence 
 91.3   regardless of whether the guidelines presume an executed prison 
 91.4   sentence.  
 91.5      Any person convicted and sentenced as required by this 
 91.6   subdivision is not eligible for probation, parole, discharge, or 
 91.7   work release, until that person has served the full term of 
 91.8   imprisonment imposed by the court, notwithstanding sections 
 91.9   241.26, 242.19, 243.05, 244.04, 609.12, and 609.135.

 91.13  SIXTH FELONY.] Whenever a person is convicted of a felony, and 
 91.14  the judge is imposing an executed sentence based on a sentencing 
 91.15  guidelines presumptive imprisonment sentence, the judge may 
 91.16  impose an aggravated durational departure from the presumptive 
 91.17  sentence up to the statutory maximum sentence if the judge finds 
 91.18  and specifies on the record that the offender has five or more 
 91.19  prior felony convictions and that the present offense is a 
 91.20  felony that was committed as part of a pattern of criminal 
 91.21  conduct. 
 91.22     Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 91.23  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 91.24     Subdivision 1.  In a prosecution under sections 609.109 or 
 91.25  609.342 to 609.346 609.3451, the testimony of a victim need not 
 91.26  be corroborated. 
 91.27     Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 91.28  subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
 91.29     Subd. 2.  In a prosecution under sections 609.109 or 
 91.30  609.342 to 609.346 609.3451, there is no need to show that the 
 91.31  victim resisted the accused.  
 91.32     Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 91.33  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 91.34     Subd. 3.  In a prosecution under sections 609.109, 609.342 
 91.35  to 609.346 609.3451, or 609.365, evidence of the victim's 
 91.36  previous sexual conduct shall not be admitted nor shall any 
 92.1   reference to such conduct be made in the presence of the jury, 
 92.2   except by court order under the procedure provided in 
 92.3   subdivision 4.  The evidence can be admitted only if the 
 92.4   probative value of the evidence is not substantially outweighed 
 92.5   by its inflammatory or prejudicial nature and only in the 
 92.6   circumstances set out in paragraphs (a) and (b).  For the 
 92.7   evidence to be admissible under paragraph (a), subsection (i), 
 92.8   the judge must find by a preponderance of the evidence that the 
 92.9   facts set out in the accused's offer of proof are true.  For the 
 92.10  evidence to be admissible under paragraph (a), subsection (ii) 
 92.11  or paragraph (b), the judge must find that the evidence is 
 92.12  sufficient to support a finding that the facts set out in the 
 92.13  accused's offer of proof are true, as provided under Rule 901 of 
 92.14  the Rules of Evidence. 
 92.15     (a) When consent of the victim is a defense in the case, 
 92.16  the following evidence is admissible: 
 92.17     (i) evidence of the victim's previous sexual conduct 
 92.18  tending to establish a common scheme or plan of similar sexual 
 92.19  conduct under circumstances similar to the case at issue.  In 
 92.20  order to find a common scheme or plan, the judge must find that 
 92.21  the victim made prior allegations of sexual assault which were 
 92.22  fabricated; and 
 92.23     (ii) evidence of the victim's previous sexual conduct with 
 92.24  the accused.  
 92.25     (b) When the prosecution's case includes evidence of semen, 
 92.26  pregnancy, or disease at the time of the incident or, in the 
 92.27  case of pregnancy, between the time of the incident and trial, 
 92.28  evidence of specific instances of the victim's previous sexual 
 92.29  conduct is admissible solely to show the source of the semen, 
 92.30  pregnancy, or disease. 
 92.31     Sec. 11.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 92.32  subdivision 5, is amended to read:

 92.34  609.342 to 609.346 609.3451, the court shall not instruct the 
 92.35  jury to the effect that: 
 92.36     (a) It may be inferred that a victim who has previously 
 93.1   consented to sexual intercourse with persons other than the 
 93.2   accused would be therefore more likely to consent to sexual 
 93.3   intercourse again; or 
 93.4      (b) The victim's previous or subsequent sexual conduct in 
 93.5   and of itself may be considered in determining the credibility 
 93.6   of the victim; or 
 93.7      (c) Criminal sexual conduct is a crime easily charged by a 
 93.8   victim but very difficult to disprove by an accused because of 
 93.9   the heinous nature of the crime; or 
 93.10     (d) The jury should scrutinize the testimony of the victim 
 93.11  any more closely than it should scrutinize the testimony of any 
 93.12  witness in any felony prosecution.  
 93.13     Sec. 12.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 93.14  subdivision 6, is amended to read: 
 93.15     Subd. 6.  (a) In a prosecution under sections 609.109 or 
 93.16  609.342 to 609.346 609.3451 involving a psychotherapist and 
 93.17  patient, evidence of the patient's personal or medical history 
 93.18  is not admissible except when:  
 93.19     (1) the accused requests a hearing at least three business 
 93.20  days prior to trial and makes an offer of proof of the relevancy 
 93.21  of the history; and 
 93.22     (2) the court finds that the history is relevant and that 
 93.23  the probative value of the history outweighs its prejudicial 
 93.24  value.  
 93.25     (b) The court shall allow the admission only of specific 
 93.26  information or examples of conduct of the victim that are 
 93.27  determined by the court to be relevant.  The court's order shall 
 93.28  detail the information or conduct that is admissible and no 
 93.29  other evidence of the history may be introduced. 
 93.30     (c) Violation of the terms of the order is grounds for 
 93.31  mistrial but does not prevent the retrial of the accused.  
 93.32     Sec. 13.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.348, is 
 93.33  amended to read: 
 93.34     609.348 [MEDICAL PURPOSES; EXCLUSION.] 
 93.35     Sections 609.109 and 609.342 to 609.346 609.3451 do not 
 93.36  apply to sexual penetration or sexual contact when done for a 
 94.1   bona fide medical purpose. 
 94.2      Sec. 14.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 631.045, is 
 94.3   amended to read: 
 94.4      631.045 [EXCLUDING SPECTATORS FROM THE COURTROOM.] 
 94.5      At the trial of a complaint or indictment for a violation 
 94.6   of sections 609.109, 609.341 to 609.346 609.3451, or 617.246, 
 94.7   subdivision 2, when a minor under 18 years of age is the person 
 94.8   upon, with, or against whom the crime is alleged to have been 
 94.9   committed, the judge may exclude the public from the courtroom 
 94.10  during the victim's testimony or during all or part of the 
 94.11  remainder of the trial upon a showing that closure is necessary 
 94.12  to protect a witness or ensure fairness in the trial.  The judge 
 94.13  shall give the prosecutor, defendant and members of the public 
 94.14  the opportunity to object to the closure before a closure order. 
 94.15  The judge shall specify the reasons for closure in an order 
 94.16  closing all or part of the trial.  Upon closure the judge shall 
 94.17  only admit persons who have a direct interest in the case.  
 94.18     Sec. 15.  [REVISOR'S INSTRUCTION.]

 95.30  the commissioner of corrections, provided that:  
 95.31     (a) (1) no inmate serving a life sentence for committing 
 95.32  murder before May 1, 1980, other than murder committed in 
 95.33  violation of clause (1) of section 609.185 who has not been 
 95.34  previously convicted of a felony shall be paroled without having

 96.9      (c) (3) any inmate sentenced prior to September 1, 1963, 
 96.10  who would be eligible for parole had the inmate been sentenced

 97.8   the probationer before the court for further proceedings under 
 97.9   section 609.14.  
 97.10     (e) The written order of the commissioner of corrections is

 97.19  corrections or the court, and the limits fixed for these persons 
 97.20  may be enlarged or reduced according to their conduct. 
 97.21     (g) Except as otherwise provided in subdivision 1b, in 
 97.22  considering applications for conditional release or discharge, 
 97.23  the commissioner is not required to hear oral argument from any 
 97.24  attorney or other person not connected with an adult

 97.26  of or against the parole or release of any inmates, but.  The 
 97.27  commissioner may institute inquiries by correspondence, taking

 97.31  chief executive officer of any state adult correctional facility 
 97.32  and the production of the records of these facilities, and to 
 97.33  compel the attendance of witnesses.  The commissioner is 
 97.34  authorized to administer oaths to witnesses for these purposes. 
 97.35     (h) Unless the district court directs otherwise, state 
 97.36  parole and probation agents may require a person who is under 
 98.1   the supervision of the commissioner of corrections to perform 
 98.2   community work service for violating a condition of probation

136.30  The commissioner may open the Brainerd 
136.31  facility on or after May 1, 1999 July

137.13  this consideration, the commissioner 
137.14  must consider reduction in management 
137.15  and supervisory personnel levels in 
137.16  addition to line staff levels within

137.28  security requirements, the commissioner 
137.29  may contract with the facility for the

143.19  "Child in need of protection or services" means a child who is 
143.20  in need of protection or services because the child: 
143.21     (1) is abandoned or without parent, guardian, or custodian; 
143.22     (2)(i) has been a victim of physical or sexual abuse, (ii) 
143.23  resides with or has resided with a victim of domestic child 
143.24  abuse as defined in subdivision 24, (iii) resides with or would 
143.25  reside with a perpetrator of domestic child abuse or child abuse 
143.26  as defined in subdivision 28, or (iv) is a victim of emotional 
143.27  maltreatment as defined in subdivision 5a; 
143.28     (3) is without necessary food, clothing, shelter, 
143.29  education, or other required care for the child's physical or 
143.30  mental health or morals because the child's parent, guardian, or 
143.31  custodian is unable or unwilling to provide that care; 
143.32     (4) is without the special care made necessary by a 
143.33  physical, mental, or emotional condition because the child's 
143.34  parent, guardian, or custodian is unable or unwilling to provide 
143.35  that care; 
143.36     (5) is medically neglected, which includes, but is not 
144.1   limited to, the withholding of medically indicated treatment 
144.2   from a disabled infant with a life-threatening condition.  The 
144.3   term "withholding of medically indicated treatment" means the 
144.4   failure to respond to the infant's life-threatening conditions 
144.5   by providing treatment, including appropriate nutrition, 
144.6   hydration, and medication which, in the treating physician's or 
144.7   physicians' reasonable medical judgment, will be most likely to 
144.8   be effective in ameliorating or correcting all conditions, 
144.9   except that the term does not include the failure to provide 
144.10  treatment other than appropriate nutrition, hydration, or 
144.11  medication to an infant when, in the treating physician's or 
144.12  physicians' reasonable medical judgment: 
144.13     (i) the infant is chronically and irreversibly comatose; 
144.14     (ii) the provision of the treatment would merely prolong

144.16  infant's life-threatening conditions, or otherwise be futile in 
144.17  terms of the survival of the infant; or 
144.18     (iii) the provision of the treatment would be virtually 
144.19  futile in terms of the survival of the infant and the treatment 
144.20  itself under the circumstances would be inhumane;

145.20     Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.015, 
145.21  subdivision 21, is amended to read: 
145.22     Subd. 21.  [JUVENILE PETTY OFFENDER; JUVENILE PETTY 
145.23  OFFENSE.] (a) "Juvenile petty offense" includes a juvenile 
145.24  alcohol offense, a juvenile controlled substance offense, a 
145.25  violation of section 609.685, or a violation of a local 
145.26  ordinance, which by its terms prohibits conduct by a child under 
145.27  the age of 18 years which would be lawful conduct if committed 
145.28  by an adult.  
145.29     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c), 
145.30  "juvenile petty offense" also includes an offense that would be 
145.31  a misdemeanor if committed by an adult.  
145.32     (c) "Juvenile petty offense" does not include any of the 
145.33  following: 
145.34     (1) a misdemeanor-level violation of section 588.20, 
145.35  609.224, 609.2242, 609.324, 609.563, 609.576, 609.66, 609.746, 
145.36  609.79, or 617.23; 
146.1      (2) a major traffic offense or an adult court traffic 
146.2   offense, as described in section 260.193; 
146.3      (3) a misdemeanor-level offense committed by a child whom 
146.4   the juvenile court previously has found to have committed a

146.7   the juvenile court has found to have committed a 
146.8   misdemeanor-level juvenile petty offense on two or more prior 
146.9   occasions, unless the county attorney designates the child on 
146.10  the petition as a juvenile petty offender notwithstanding this 
146.11  prior record.  As used in this clause, "misdemeanor-level 
146.12  juvenile petty offense" includes a misdemeanor-level offense 
146.13  that would have been a juvenile petty offense if it had been 
146.14  committed on or after July 1, 1995.  
146.15     (d) A child who commits a juvenile petty offense is a 
146.16  "juvenile petty offender." 
146.17     Sec. 6.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.131, is 
146.18  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
146.19     Subd. 5.  [CONCURRENT JURISDICTION.] When a petition is 
146.20  filed alleging that a child has engaged in prostitution as 
146.21  defined in section 609.321, subdivision 9, the county attorney 
146.22  shall determine whether concurrent jurisdiction is necessary to 
146.23  provide appropriate intervention and, if so, proceed to file a 
146.24  petition alleging the child to be both delinquent and in need of 
146.25  protection or services. 
146.26     Sec. 7.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.155, 
146.27  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
146.28     Subdivision 1.  [GENERAL.] (a) Except for hearings arising 
146.29  under section 260.261 260.315, hearings on any matter shall be 
146.30  without a jury and may be conducted in an informal manner, 
146.31  except that a child who is prosecuted as an extended 
146.32  jurisdiction juvenile has the right to a jury trial on the issue 
146.33  of guilt.  The rules of evidence promulgated pursuant to section 
146.34  480.0591 and the law of evidence shall apply in adjudicatory 
146.35  proceedings involving a child alleged to be delinquent, an 
146.36  extended jurisdiction juvenile, or a juvenile petty offender, 
147.1   and hearings conducted pursuant to section 260.125 except to the 
147.2   extent that the rules themselves provide that they do not 
147.3   apply.  In all adjudicatory proceedings involving a child 
147.4   alleged to be in need of protection or services, the court shall 
147.5   admit only evidence that would be admissible in a civil trial.  
147.6   To be proved at trial, allegations of a petition alleging a 
147.7   child to be in need of protection or services must be proved by 
147.8   clear and convincing evidence. 
147.9      (b) Except for proceedings involving a child alleged to be 
147.10  in need of protection or services and petitions for the 
147.11  termination of parental rights, hearings may be continued or 
147.12  adjourned from time to time.  In proceedings involving a child 
147.13  alleged to be in need of protection or services and petitions 
147.14  for the termination of parental rights, hearings may not be 
147.15  continued or adjourned for more than one week unless the court 
147.16  makes specific findings that the continuance or adjournment is 
147.17  in the best interests of the child.  If a hearing is held on a 
147.18  petition involving physical or sexual abuse of a child who is 
147.19  alleged to be in need of protection or services or neglected and 
147.20  in foster care, the court shall file the decision with the court 
147.21  administrator as soon as possible but no later than 15 days 
147.22  after the matter is submitted to the court.  When a continuance 
147.23  or adjournment is ordered in any proceeding, the court may make 
147.24  any interim orders as it deems in the best interests of the 
147.25  minor in accordance with the provisions of sections 260.011 to 
147.26  260.301. 
147.27     (c) Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the 
147.28  court shall exclude the general public from hearings under this 
147.29  chapter and shall admit only those persons who, in the 
147.30  discretion of the court, have a direct interest in the case or 
147.31  in the work of the court.  The court shall permit the victim of 
147.32  a child's delinquent act to attend any related delinquency 
147.33  proceeding, except that the court may exclude the victim: 
147.34     (1) as a witness under the Rules of Criminal Procedure; and 
147.35     (2) from portions of a certification hearing to discuss 
147.36  psychological material or other evidence that would not be 
148.1   accessible to the public. 
148.2   The court shall open the hearings to the public in delinquency 
148.3   or extended jurisdiction juvenile proceedings where the child is 
148.4   alleged to have committed an offense or has been proven to have 
148.5   committed an offense that would be a felony if committed by an 
148.6   adult and the child was at least 16 years of age at the time of 
148.7   the offense, except that the court may exclude the public from 
148.8   portions of a certification hearing to discuss psychological 
148.9   material or other evidence that would not be accessible to the 
148.10  public in an adult proceeding. 
148.11     (d) In all delinquency cases a person named in the charging 
148.12  clause of the petition as a person directly damaged in person or 
148.13  property shall be entitled, upon request, to be notified by the 
148.14  court administrator in writing, at the named person's last known 
148.15  address, of (1) the date of the certification or adjudicatory 
148.16  hearings, and (2) the disposition of the case. 
148.17     (e) Adoption hearings shall be conducted in accordance with 
148.18  the provisions of laws relating to adoptions. 
148.19     Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section 
148.20  260.161, subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
148.21     Subd. 2.  [PUBLIC INSPECTION OF RECORDS.] (a) Except as 
148.22  otherwise provided in this section, and except for legal records 
148.23  arising from proceedings or portions of proceedings that are 
148.24  public under section 260.155, subdivision 1, none of the records 
148.25  of the juvenile court and none of the records relating to an 
148.26  appeal from a nonpublic juvenile court proceeding, except the 
148.27  written appellate opinion, shall be open to public inspection or 
148.28  their contents disclosed except (a):  
148.29     (1) by order of a court, (b); or 
148.30     (2) as required by sections 245A.04, 611A.03, 611A.04, 
148.31  611A.06, and 629.73, or (c)  the name of a juvenile who is the 
148.32  subject of a delinquency petition shall be released to. 
148.33     (b) The victim of the any alleged delinquent act may, upon 
148.34  the victim's request; unless it reasonably appears that the 
148.35  request is prompted by a desire on the part of the requester to 
148.36  engage in unlawful activities., obtain the following 
149.1   information, unless it reasonably appears that the request is 
149.2   prompted by a desire on the part of the requester to engage in 
149.3   unlawful activities: 
149.4      (1) the name and age of the juvenile; 
149.5      (2) the act for which the juvenile was petitioned and date 
149.6   of the offense; and 
149.7      (3) the disposition, including but not limited to, 
149.8   dismissal of the petition, diversion, probation and conditions 
149.9   of probation, detention, fines, or restitution.  
149.10     (c) The records of juvenile probation officers and county 
149.11  home schools are records of the court for the purposes of this 
149.12  subdivision.  Court services data relating to delinquent acts 
149.13  that are contained in records of the juvenile court may be 
149.14  released as allowed under section 13.84, subdivision 5a.  This 
149.15  subdivision applies to all proceedings under this chapter, 
149.16  including appeals from orders of the juvenile court, except that 
149.17  this subdivision does not apply to proceedings under section 
149.18  260.255, 260.261, or 260.315 when the proceeding involves an 
149.19  adult defendant.  The court shall maintain the confidentiality 
149.20  of adoption files and records in accordance with the provisions 
149.21  of laws relating to adoptions.  In juvenile court proceedings 
149.22  any report or social history furnished to the court shall be 
149.23  open to inspection by the attorneys of record and the guardian 
149.24  ad litem a reasonable time before it is used in connection with 
149.25  any proceeding before the court. 
149.26     (d) When a judge of a juvenile court, or duly authorized 
149.27  agent of the court, determines under a proceeding under this 
149.28  chapter that a child has violated a state or local law, 
149.29  ordinance, or regulation pertaining to the operation of a motor 
149.30  vehicle on streets and highways, except parking violations, the 
149.31  judge or agent shall immediately report the violation to the 
149.32  commissioner of public safety.  The report must be made on a 
149.33  form provided by the department of public safety and must 
149.34  contain the information required under section 169.95. 
149.35     (e) A county attorney may give a law enforcement agency 
149.36  that referred a delinquency matter to the county attorney a 
150.1   summary of the results of that referral, including the details 
150.2   of any juvenile court disposition. 
150.3      Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section 
150.4   260.165, subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
150.5      Subdivision 1.  No child may be taken into immediate 
150.6   custody except: 
150.7      (a) With an order issued by the court in accordance with 
150.8   the provisions of section 260.135, subdivision 5, or Laws 1997, 
150.9   chapter 239, article 10, section 10, paragraph (a), clause (3), 
150.10  or 12, paragraph (a), clause (3), or by a warrant issued in 
150.11  accordance with the provisions of section 260.145; or 
150.12     (b) In accordance with the laws relating to arrests; or 
150.13     (c) By a peace officer 
150.14     (1) when a child has run away from a parent, guardian, or 
150.15  custodian, or when the peace officer reasonably believes the 
150.16  child has run away from a parent, guardian, or custodian; or 
150.17     (2) when a child is found in surroundings or conditions 
150.18  which endanger the child's health or welfare or which such peace 
150.19  officer reasonably believes will endanger the child's health or 
150.20  welfare.  If an Indian child is a resident of a reservation or 
150.21  is domiciled on a reservation but temporarily located off the 
150.22  reservation, the taking of the child into custody under this 
150.23  clause shall be consistent with the Indian Child Welfare Act of 
150.24  1978, United States Code, title 25, section 1922; 
150.25     (d) By a peace officer or probation or parole officer when 
150.26  it is reasonably believed that the child has violated the terms 
150.27  of probation, parole, or other field supervision; or 
150.28     (e) By a peace officer or probation officer under section 
150.29  260.132, subdivision 1 or 4. 
150.30     Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.165, is 
150.31  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
150.32     Subd. 2a.  [PROTECTIVE PAT-DOWN SEARCH OF CHILD 
150.33  AUTHORIZED.] (a) A peace officer who takes a child of any age or 
150.34  gender into custody under the provisions of this section is 
150.35  authorized to perform a protective pat-down search of the child 
150.36  in order to protect the officer's safety.  
151.1      (b) A peace officer also may perform a protective pat-down 
151.2   search of a child in order to protect the officer's safety in 
151.3   circumstances where the officer does not intend to take the 
151.4   child into custody, if this section authorizes the officer to 
151.5   take the child into custody.  
151.6      (c) Evidence discovered in the course of a lawful search 
151.7   under this section is admissible. 
151.8      Sec. 11.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.255, is 
151.9   amended to read: 
151.10     260.255 [CIVIL JURISDICTION OVER PERSONS CONTRIBUTING TO 
151.11  DELINQUENCY, STATUS AS A JUVENILE PETTY OFFENDER, OR NEED FOR 
151.12  PROTECTION OR SERVICES; COURT ORDERS.] 
151.13     Subdivision 1.  [JURISDICTION.] The juvenile court has 
151.14  civil jurisdiction over persons contributing to the delinquency, 
151.15  status as a juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or 
151.16  services of a child under the provisions of subdivision 2 or 3 
151.17  this section.  
151.18     Subd. 1a.  [PETITION; ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE.] A request for 
151.19  jurisdiction over a person described in subdivision 1 shall be 
151.20  initiated by the filing of a verified petition by the county 
151.21  attorney having jurisdiction over the place where the child is 
151.22  found, resides, or where the alleged act of contributing 
151.23  occurred.  A prior or pending petition alleging that the child 
151.24  is delinquent, a juvenile petty offender, or in need of 
151.25  protection or services is not a prerequisite to a petition under 
151.26  this section.  The petition shall allege the factual basis for 
151.27  the claim that the person is contributing to the child's 
151.28  delinquency, status as a juvenile petty offender, or need for 
151.29  protection or services.  If the court determines, upon review of 
151.30  the verified petition, that probable cause exists to believe 
151.31  that the person has contributed to the child's delinquency, 
151.32  status as a juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or 
151.33  services, the court shall issue an order to show cause why the 
151.34  person should not be subject to the jurisdiction of the court.  
151.35  The order to show cause and a copy of the verified petition 
151.36  shall be served personally upon the person and shall set forth 
152.1   the time and place of the hearing to be conducted under 
152.2   subdivision 2.  
152.3      Subd. 2.  [HEARING.] If in (a) The court shall conduct a 
152.4   hearing on the petition in accordance with the procedures 
152.5   contained in paragraph (b).  
152.6      (b) Hearings under this subdivision shall be without a jury.
152.7   The rules of evidence promulgated pursuant to section 480.0591 
152.8   and the provisions under section 260.156 shall apply.  In all 
152.9   proceedings under this section, the court shall admit only 
152.10  evidence that would be admissible in a civil trial.  When the 
152.11  respondent is an adult, hearings under this subdivision shall be 
152.12  open to the public.  Hearings shall be conducted within five 
152.13  days of personal service of the order to show cause and may be 
152.14  continued for a reasonable period of time if a continuance is in 
152.15  the best interest of the child or in the interests of justice. 
152.16     (c) At the conclusion of the hearing of a case of a child 
152.17  alleged to be delinquent or in need of protection or services it 
152.18  appears, if the court finds by a fair preponderance of the 
152.19  evidence that any person has violated the provisions of the 
152.20  person has contributed to the child's delinquency, status as a 
152.21  juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or services, as 
152.22  defined in section 260.315, the court may make any of the 
152.23  following orders: 
152.24     (a) (1) restrain the person from any further act or 
152.25  omission in violation of section 260.315; or 
152.26     (b) (2) prohibit the person from associating or 
152.27  communicating in any manner with the child; or 
152.28     (c) Provide for the maintenance or care of the child, if 
152.29  the person is responsible for such, and direct when, how, and 
152.30  where money for such maintenance or care shall be paid.  
152.31     (3) require the person to participate in evaluation or 
152.32  services determined necessary by the court to correct the 
152.33  conditions that contributed to the child's delinquency, status 
152.34  as a juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or 
152.35  services; 
152.36     (4) require the person to provide supervision, treatment, 
153.1   or other necessary care; 
153.2      (5) require the person to pay restitution to a victim for 
153.3   pecuniary damages arising from an act of the child relating to 
153.4   the child's delinquency, status as a juvenile petty offender, or 
153.5   need for protection or services; 
153.6      (6) require the person to pay the cost of services provided 
153.7   to the child or for the child's protection; or 
153.8      (7) require the person to provide for the child's 
153.9   maintenance or care if the person is responsible for the 
153.10  maintenance or care, and direct when, how, and where money for 
153.11  the maintenance or care shall be paid.  If the person is 
153.12  receiving public assistance for the child's maintenance or care, 
153.13  the court shall authorize the public agency responsible for 
153.14  administering the public assistance funds to make payments 
153.15  directly to vendors for the cost of food, shelter, medical care, 
153.16  utilities, and other necessary expenses.  
153.17     (d) An order issued under this section shall be for a fixed 
153.18  period of time, not to exceed one year.  The order may be 
153.19  renewed or modified prior to expiration upon notice and motion 
153.20  when there has not been compliance with the court's order or the 
153.21  order continues to be necessary to eliminate the contributing 
153.22  behavior or to mitigate its effect on the child. 
153.23     Subd. 3.  [CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS.] Before making any order 
153.24  under subdivision 2 the court shall issue an order to show 
153.25  cause, either upon its own motion or upon a verified petition, 
153.26  specifying the charges made against the person and fixing the 
153.27  time and place of the hearing.  The order to show cause shall be 
153.28  served personally and shall be heard in the same manner as 
153.29  provided in other cases in the juvenile court.  The county

154.5   a gross misdemeanor.

164.12  computerized arson investigative data system for the purpose of 
164.13  assisting criminal justice agencies in the investigation and

164.15  separate from the reporting system maintained by the department 
164.16  of public safety under section 299F.05, subdivision 2.  The 
164.17  system consists of data on individuals who are 14 years old or 
164.18  older who law enforcement agencies determine are or may be 
164.19  engaged in arson activity.  Notwithstanding section 260.161, 
164.20  subdivision 3, data in the system on adults and juveniles may be 
164.21  maintained together.  Data in the system must be submitted and 
164.22  maintained as provided in this subdivision. 
164.23     (c) Subject to the provisions of paragraph (d), a criminal 
164.24  justice agency may submit the following data on suspected arson

164.32  behavioral incident; 
164.33     (5) the address of the building, the building owner's 
164.34  identity, and the building occupant's identity; and 
164.35     (6) the name of the reporting agency and a contact person. 
164.36  A criminal justice agency that reports data to the arson 
165.1   investigative data system shall maintain records documenting the 
165.2   data in its own records system for at least the time period 
165.3   specified in paragraph (e). 
165.4      (d) The state fire marshal shall maintain in the arson 
165.5   investigative data system any of the data reported under 
165.6   paragraph (c) that the fire marshal believes will assist in the 
165.7   investigation and prosecution of arson cases.  In lieu of or in 
165.8   connection with any of these data, the state fire marshal may 
165.9   include in the data system a reference to the criminal justice 
165.10  agency that originally reported the data, with a notation to 
165.11  system users that the agency is the repository of more detailed 
165.12  information on the particular suspected arson violation. 
165.13     (e) Notwithstanding section 138.17, the state fire marshal 
165.14  shall destroy data on juveniles entered into the system when 
165.15  three years have elapsed since the data were entered into the 
165.16  system, except as otherwise provided in this paragraph.  If the 
165.17  fire marshal has information that, since entry of data into the 
165.18  system, the juvenile has been convicted as an adult or has been 
165.19  adjudicated or has a stayed adjudication as a juvenile for an 
165.20  offense that would be a crime if committed by an adult, the data 
165.21  must be maintained until three years have elapsed since the last 
165.22  record of a conviction, adjudication, or stayed adjudication of 
165.23  the individual.  Upon request of the criminal justice agency 
165.24  that submitted data to the system, the state fire marshal shall 
165.25  destroy the data regardless of whether three years have elapsed 
165.26  since the data were entered into the system. 
165.27     (f) Data in the arson investigative data system are 
165.28  confidential data on individuals as defined in section 13.02, 
165.29  subdivision 3, but are accessible to criminal justice agencies.
