 54.9      Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section 
 54.10  518B.01, subdivision 14, is amended to read: 
 54.11     Subd. 14.  [VIOLATION OF AN ORDER FOR PROTECTION.] (a) A 
 54.12  person who violates an order for protection issued under this 
 54.13  section by a judge or referee is subject to the penalties 
 54.14  provided in paragraphs (b) to (d).  
 54.15     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (c) and (d), 
 54.16  whenever an order for protection is granted pursuant to this 
 54.17  section by a judge or referee or a similar law of another state, 
 54.18  the District of Columbia, tribal lands, or United States 
 54.19  territories, and the respondent or person to be restrained knows 
 54.20  of the order, violation of the order for protection is a 
 54.21  misdemeanor.  Upon a misdemeanor conviction under this 
 54.22  paragraph, the defendant must be sentenced to a minimum of three 
 54.23  days imprisonment and must be ordered to participate in 
 54.24  counseling or other appropriate programs selected by the court.  
 54.25  If the court stays imposition or execution of the jail sentence 
 54.26  and the defendant refuses or fails to comply with the court's 
 54.27  treatment order, the court must impose and execute the stayed 
 54.28  jail sentence.  A violation of an order for protection shall 
 54.29  also constitute contempt of court and be subject to the 
 54.30  penalties provided in chapter 588. 
 54.31     (c) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who knowingly 
 54.32  violates this subdivision during the time period between a 
 54.33  previous conviction under this subdivision; sections 609.221 to 
 54.34  609.224; 609.2242; 609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 609.748, 
 54.35  subdivision 6; 609.749; or a similar law of another state, the 
 54.36  District of Columbia, tribal lands, or United States 
 55.1   territories; and the end of the five years following discharge 
 55.2   from sentence for that conviction.  Upon a gross misdemeanor 
 55.3   conviction under this paragraph, the defendant must be sentenced 
 55.4   to a minimum of ten days imprisonment and must be ordered to 
 55.5   participate in counseling or other appropriate programs selected 
 55.6   by the court.  Notwithstanding section 609.135, the court must 
 55.7   impose and execute the minimum sentence provided in this 
 55.8   paragraph for gross misdemeanor convictions. 
 55.9      (d) A person is guilty of a felony and may be sentenced to 
 55.10  imprisonment for not more than five years or to payment of a 
 55.11  fine of not more than $10,000, or both, if the person knowingly 
 55.12  violates this subdivision: 
 55.13     (1) during the time period between the first of two or more 
 55.14  previous convictions under this section or sections 609.221 to 
 55.15  609.224; 609.2242; 609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 609.748, 
 55.16  subdivision 6; 609.749; or a similar law of another state, the 
 55.17  District of Columbia, tribal lands, or United States 
 55.18  territories; and the end of the five years following discharge 
 55.19  from sentence for that conviction; or 
 55.20     (2) while possessing a dangerous weapon, as defined in 
 55.21  section 609.02, subdivision 6. 
 55.22  Upon a felony conviction under this paragraph in which the court 
 55.23  stays imposition or execution of sentence, the court shall 
 55.24  impose at least a 30-day period of incarceration as a condition 
 55.25  of probation.  The court also shall order that the defendant 
 55.26  participate in counseling or other appropriate programs selected 
 55.27  by the court.  Notwithstanding section 609.135, the court must 
 55.28  impose and execute the minimum sentence provided in this 
 55.29  paragraph for felony convictions. 
 55.30     (e) A peace officer shall arrest without a warrant and take 
 55.31  into custody a person whom the peace officer has probable cause 
 55.32  to believe has violated an order granted pursuant to this 
 55.33  section or a similar law of another state, the District of 
 55.34  Columbia, tribal lands, or United States territories restraining 
 55.35  the person or excluding the person from the residence or the 
 55.36  petitioner's place of employment, even if the violation of the 
 56.1   order did not take place in the presence of the peace officer, 
 56.2   if the existence of the order can be verified by the officer.  
 56.3   The person shall be held in custody for at least 36 hours, 
 56.4   excluding the day of arrest, Sundays, and holidays, unless the 
 56.5   person is released earlier by a judge or judicial officer.  A 
 56.6   peace officer acting in good faith and exercising due care in 
 56.7   making an arrest pursuant to this paragraph is immune from civil 
 56.8   liability that might result from the officer's actions. 
 56.9      (f) If the court finds that the respondent has violated an 
 56.10  order for protection and that there is reason to believe that 
 56.11  the respondent will commit a further violation of the provisions 
 56.12  of the order restraining the respondent from committing acts of 
 56.13  domestic abuse or excluding the respondent from the petitioner's 
 56.14  residence, the court may require the respondent to acknowledge 
 56.15  an obligation to comply with the order on the record.  The court 
 56.16  may require a bond sufficient to deter the respondent from 
 56.17  committing further violations of the order for protection, 
 56.18  considering the financial resources of the respondent, and not 
 56.19  to exceed $10,000.  If the respondent refuses to comply with an 
 56.20  order to acknowledge the obligation or post a bond under this 
 56.21  paragraph, the court shall commit the respondent to the county 
 56.22  jail during the term of the order for protection or until the 
 56.23  respondent complies with the order under this paragraph.  The 
 56.24  warrant must state the cause of commitment, with the sum and 
 56.25  time for which any bond is required.  If an order is issued 
 56.26  under this paragraph, the court may order the costs of the 
 56.27  contempt action, or any part of them, to be paid by the 
 56.28  respondent.  An order under this paragraph is appealable.  
 56.29     (g) Upon the filing of an affidavit by the petitioner, any 
 56.30  peace officer, or an interested party designated by the court, 
 56.31  alleging that the respondent has violated any order for 
 56.32  protection granted pursuant to this section or a similar law of 
 56.33  another state, the District of Columbia, tribal lands, or United 
 56.34  States territories, the court may issue an order to the 
 56.35  respondent, requiring the respondent to appear and show cause 
 56.36  within 14 days why the respondent should not be found in 
 57.1   contempt of court and punished therefor.  The hearing may be 
 57.2   held by the court in any county in which the petitioner or 
 57.3   respondent temporarily or permanently resides at the time of the 
 57.4   alleged violation, or in the county in which the alleged 
 57.5   violation occurred, if the petitioner and respondent do not 
 57.6   reside in this state.  The court also shall refer the violation 
 57.7   of the order for protection to the appropriate prosecuting 
 57.8   authority for possible prosecution under paragraph (b), (c), or 
 57.9   (d). 
 57.10     (h) If it is alleged that the respondent has violated an 
 57.11  order for protection issued under subdivision 6 or a similar law 
 57.12  of another state, the District of Columbia, tribal lands, or 
 57.13  United States territories, and the court finds that the order 
 57.14  has expired between the time of the alleged violation and the 
 57.15  court's hearing on the violation, the court may grant a new 
 57.16  order for protection under subdivision 6 based solely on the 
 57.17  respondent's alleged violation of the prior order, to be 
 57.18  effective until the hearing on the alleged violation of the 
 57.19  prior order.  If the court finds that the respondent has 
 57.20  violated the prior order, the relief granted in the new order 
 57.21  for protection shall be extended for a fixed period, not to 
 57.22  exceed one year, except when the court determines a longer fixed 
 57.23  period is appropriate. 
 57.24     (i) The admittance into petitioner's dwelling of an abusing 
 57.25  party excluded from the dwelling under an order for protection 
 57.26  is not a violation by the petitioner of the order for protection.
 57.27     A peace officer is not liable under section 609.43, clause 
 57.28  (1), for a failure to perform a duty required by paragraph (e). 
 57.29     (j) When a person is convicted under paragraph (b) or (c) 
 57.30  of violating an order for protection and the court determines 
 57.31  that the person used a firearm in any way during commission of 
 57.32  the violation, the court may order that the person is prohibited 
 57.33  from possessing any type of firearm for any period longer than 
 57.34  three years or for the remainder of the person's life.  A person 
 57.35  who violates this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.  
 57.36  At the time of the conviction, the court shall inform the 
 58.1   defendant whether and for how long the defendant is prohibited 
 58.2   from possessing a firearm and that it is a gross misdemeanor to 
 58.3   violate this paragraph.  The failure of the court to provide 
 58.4   this information to a defendant does not affect the 
 58.5   applicability of the firearm possession prohibition or the gross 
 58.6   misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 58.7      (k) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (j), when a 
 58.8   person is convicted under paragraph (b) or (c) of violating an 
 58.9   order for protection, the court shall inform the defendant that 
 58.10  the defendant is prohibited from possessing a pistol for three 
 58.11  years from the date of conviction and that it is a gross 
 58.12  misdemeanor offense to violate this prohibition.  The failure of 
 58.13  the court to provide this information to a defendant does not 
 58.14  affect the applicability of the pistol possession prohibition or 
 58.15  the gross misdemeanor penalty to that defendant. 
 58.16     (l) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (j), a person 
 58.17  is not entitled to possess a pistol if the person has been 
 58.18  convicted under paragraph (b) or (c) after August 1, 1996, of 
 58.19  violating an order for protection, unless three years have 
 58.20  elapsed from the date of conviction and, during that time, the 
 58.21  person has not been convicted of any other violation of this 
 58.22  section.  Property rights may not be abated but access may be 
 58.23  restricted by the courts.  A person who possesses a pistol in 
 58.24  violation of this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. 
 58.25     (m) If the court determines that a person convicted under 
 58.26  paragraph (b) or (c) of violating an order for protection owns 
 58.27  or possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the 
 58.28  commission of the violation, it shall order that the firearm be 
 58.29  summarily forfeited under section 609.5316, subdivision 3. 
 58.30     Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section 
 58.31  609.2244, subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 58.32     Subdivision 1.  [INVESTIGATION.] A presentence domestic

 58.36     (1) a defendant is convicted of an offense described in 
 59.1   section 518B.01, subdivision 2; or 
 59.2      (2) a defendant is arrested for committing an offense 
 59.3   described in section 518B.01, subdivision 2, but is convicted of 
 59.4   another offense arising out of the same circumstances 
 59.5   surrounding the arrest; or 
 59.6      (3) a defendant is convicted of a violation against a 
 59.7   family or household member of:  (a) an order for protection 
 59.8   under section 518B.01; (b) a harassment restraining order under 
 59.9   section 609.748; (c) section 609.79, subdivision 1; or (d)

 59.11     Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.748, 
 59.12  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 59.13     Subd. 3.  [CONTENTS OF PETITION; HEARING; NOTICE.] (a) A 
 59.14  petition for relief must allege facts sufficient to show the 
 59.15  following:

 59.17     (2) the name of the respondent; and 
 59.18     (3) that the respondent has engaged in harassment. 
 59.19  The petition shall be accompanied by an affidavit made under 
 59.20  oath stating the specific facts and circumstances from which 
 59.21  relief is sought.  The court shall provide simplified forms and 
 59.22  clerical assistance to help with the writing and filing of a 
 59.23  petition under this section and shall advise the petitioner of 
 59.24  the right to sue in forma pauperis under section 563.01.  Upon 
 59.25  receipt of the petition, the court shall order a hearing, which 
 59.26  must be held not later than 14 days from the date of the order.  
 59.27  Personal service must be made upon the respondent not less than 
 59.28  five days before the hearing.  If personal service cannot be 
 59.29  completed in time to give the respondent the minimum notice 
 59.30  required under this paragraph, the court may set a new hearing 
 59.31  date. 
 59.32     (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), the order for a hearing 
 59.33  and a temporary order issued under subdivision 4 may be served 
 59.34  on the respondent by means of a one-week published notice under

 59.36     (1) the petitioner files an affidavit with the court

 60.4      (2) a copy of the petition and order for hearing and any 
 60.5   temporary restraining order has been mailed to the respondent at

 60.14  petitioner. 
 60.15     Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.748, 
 60.16  subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 60.17     Subd. 4.  [TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER.] (a) The court may 
 60.18  issue a temporary restraining order ordering the respondent to 
 60.19  cease or avoid the harassment of another person or to have no 
 60.20  contact with that person if the petitioner files a petition in 
 60.21  compliance with subdivision 3 and if the court finds reasonable 
 60.22  grounds to believe that the respondent has engaged in harassment.
 60.23     (b) Notice need not be given to the respondent before the 
 60.24  court issues a temporary restraining order under this 
 60.25  subdivision.  A copy of the restraining order must be served on 
 60.26  the respondent along with the order for hearing and petition, as 
 60.27  provided in subdivision 3.  If the respondent is a juvenile, 
 60.28  whenever possible, a copy of the restraining order, along with 
 60.29  notice of the pendency of the case and the time and place of the 
 60.30  hearing, shall also be served by mail at the last known address 
 60.31  upon any parent or guardian of the juvenile respondent who is 
 60.32  not the petitioner.  A temporary restraining order may be 
 60.33  entered only against the respondent named in the petition.  
 60.34     (c) The temporary restraining order is in effect until a 
 60.35  hearing is held on the issuance of a restraining order under 
 60.36  subdivision 5.  The court shall hold the hearing on the issuance 
 61.1   of a restraining order within 14 days after the temporary 
 61.2   restraining order is issued unless (1) the time period is 
 61.3   extended upon written consent of the parties; or (2) the time 
 61.4   period is extended by the court for one additional 14-day period 
 61.5   upon a showing that the respondent has not been served with a 
 61.6   copy of the temporary restraining order despite the exercise of 
 61.7   due diligence or if service is made by published notice under 
 61.8   subdivision 3 and the petitioner files the affidavit required 
 61.9   under that subdivision.  
 61.10     Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 634.20, is 
 61.11  amended to read: 
 61.12     634.20 [EVIDENCE OF PRIOR CONDUCT.] 
 61.13     Evidence of similar prior conduct by the accused against 
 61.14  the victim of domestic abuse, as defined under section 518B.01,

 61.20  or 
 61.21     (4) section 609.79, subdivision 1; 
 61.22  is admissible unless the probative value is substantially 
 61.23  outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice, confusion of the 
 61.24  issue, or misleading the jury, or by considerations of undue 
 61.25  delay, waste of time, or needless presentation of cumulative 
 61.26  evidence. 
 61.27     Sec. 6.  Laws 1997, chapter 239, article 10, section 19, is 
 61.28  amended to read: 
 61.29     Sec. 19.  [VIOLATION OF AN ORDER FOR PROTECTION/MINOR 
 61.30  RESPONDENT; PENALTIES.] 
 61.31     Subdivision 1.  [AFFIDAVIT; ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE.] The 
 61.32  petitioner, a peace officer, or an interested party designated 
 61.33  by the court may file an affidavit with the court alleging that 
 61.34  a minor respondent has violated an order for protection/minor 
 61.35  respondent under sections 2 to 26.  The court may order the 
 61.36  minor respondent to appear and show cause within 14 days why the 
 62.1   minor respondent should not be found in contempt of court and 
 62.2   punished for the contempt.  The court may also order the minor 
 62.3   to participate in counseling or other appropriate programs 
 62.4   selected by the court.  The hearing may be held by the court in 
 62.5   any county in which the petitioner or minor respondent 
 62.6   temporarily or permanently resides at the time of the alleged 
 62.7   violation. or in the county in which the alleged violation 
 62.8   occurred, if the petitioner and respondent do not reside in this 
 62.9   state.  The court also shall refer the violation of the order 
 62.10  for protection/minor respondent to the county attorney for 
 62.11  possible prosecution under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), 
 62.12  or (d), or if the respondent is an adult at the time of the 
 62.13  alleged violation, to the appropriate prosecuting authority for 
 62.14  possible prosecution under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 518B. 
 62.15     Subd. 1a.  [PENALTIES.] (a) A person who violates an order 
 62.16  for protection/minor respondent issued under this section is 
 62.17  subject to the penalties provided in paragraphs (b) to (d), 
 62.18  except that if the respondent or person to be restrained is over 
 62.19  the age of 18 at the time of the violation, Minnesota Statutes, 
 62.20  section 518B.01, subdivision 14, shall apply.  If the respondent 
 62.21  is still a minor at the time of the violation, the laws relating 
 62.22  to delinquency prosecution and disposition in juvenile court 
 62.23  shall apply, consistent with this section and notwithstanding 
 62.24  the provisions of Minnesota Statutes, section 260.015, 
 62.25  subdivision 21. 
 62.26     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (c) and (d), 
 62.27  whenever an order for protection/minor respondent is granted 
 62.28  under this section or a similar law of another state, and the 
 62.29  respondent or person to be restrained knows of the order, 
 62.30  violation of the order for protection/minor respondent is a 
 62.31  misdemeanor.  Upon a misdemeanor adjudication of delinquency, 
 62.32  the respondent must be ordered to participate in counseling or 
 62.33  other appropriate programs selected by the court.  A violation 
 62.34  of an order for protection/minor respondent shall also 
 62.35  constitute contempt of court and be subject to the penalties 
 62.36  provided in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 588. 
 63.1      (c) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who knowingly 
 63.2   violates this subdivision during the time period between a 
 63.3   previous adjudication of delinquency under this subdivision; 
 63.4   Minnesota Statutes, sections 609.221 to 609.224; 609.2242; 
 63.5   609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 609.748, subdivision 6; 609.749; or 
 63.6   a similar law of another state; and the end of the five years 
 63.7   following discharge from sentence for that adjudication of 
 63.8   delinquency.  Upon a gross misdemeanor adjudication of 
 63.9   delinquency under this paragraph, the respondent must be ordered 
 63.10  to participate in counseling or other appropriate programs 
 63.11  selected by the court. 
 63.12     (d) A person is guilty of a felony if the person knowingly 
 63.13  violates this subdivision: 
 63.14     (1) during the time period between the first of two or more 
 63.15  previous adjudications of delinquency under this section or 
 63.16  Minnesota Statutes, sections 609.221 to 609.224; 609.2242; 
 63.17  609.713, subdivision 1 or 3; 609.748, subdivision 6; 609.749; or 
 63.18  a similar law of another state; and the end of the five years 
 63.19  following discharge from sentence for that adjudication of 
 63.20  delinquency; or 
 63.21     (2) while possessing a dangerous weapon, as defined in 
 63.22  Minnesota Statutes, section 609.02, subdivision 6. 
 63.23  Upon a felony adjudication of delinquency under this paragraph, 
 63.24  the court shall order, at a minimum, that the respondent 
 63.25  participate in counseling or other appropriate programs selected 
 63.26  by the court. 
 63.27     (e) A peace officer shall arrest without a warrant and take 
 63.28  into custody a person whom the peace officer has probable cause 
 63.29  to believe has violated an order granted under this section, 
 63.30  Minnesota Statutes, chapter 518B, or a similar law of another 
 63.31  state restraining the person or excluding the person from the 
 63.32  residence or the petitioner's place of employment, even if the 
 63.33  violation of the order did not take place in the presence of the 
 63.34  peace officer, if the existence of the order can be verified by 
 63.35  the officer.  The person shall be held in custody for at least 
 63.36  36 hours, excluding the day of arrest, Sundays, and holidays, 
 64.1   unless the person is released earlier by a judge or judicial 
 64.2   officer.  A peace officer acting in good faith and exercising 
 64.3   due care in making an arrest pursuant to this paragraph is 
 64.4   immune from civil liability that might result from the officer's 
 64.5   actions.  A peace officer is not liable under Minnesota 
 64.6   Statutes, section 609.43, clause (1), for a failure to perform a 
 64.7   duty required by this paragraph. 
 64.8      (f) If the court finds that the respondent has violated an 
 64.9   order for protection/minor respondent and that there is reason 
 64.10  to believe that the respondent will commit a further violation 
 64.11  of the provisions of the order restraining the respondent from 
 64.12  committing acts of domestic abuse or excluding the respondent 
 64.13  from the petitioner's residence, the court may require the 
 64.14  respondent to acknowledge an obligation to comply with the order 
 64.15  on the record. 
 64.16     Subd. 2.  [EXTENSION OF PROTECTION ORDER.] If it is alleged 
 64.17  that a minor respondent has violated an order for 
 64.18  protection/minor respondent issued under sections 2 to 26 and 
 64.19  the court finds that the order has expired between the time of 
 64.20  the alleged violation and the court's hearing on the violation, 
 64.21  the court may grant a new order for protection/minor respondent 
 64.22  based solely on the minor respondent's alleged violation of the 
 64.23  prior order, to be effective until the hearing on the alleged 
 64.24  violation of the prior order.  The relief granted in the new 
 64.25  order for protection/minor respondent must be extended for a 
 64.26  fixed period, not to exceed one year, except when the court 
 64.27  determines a longer fixed period is appropriate. 
 64.28     Subd. 3.  [ADMITTANCE INTO DWELLING.] Admittance into the 
 64.29  petitioner's dwelling of an abusing party excluded from the 
 64.30  dwelling under an order for protection/minor respondent is not a 
 64.31  violation by the petitioner of the order. 
 64.32     Subd. 4.  [POSSESSION OF FIREARM.] (a) When a person is 
 64.33  adjudicated delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), 
 64.34  or (d), of violating an order for protection/minor respondent 
 64.35  and the court determines that the person used a firearm in any 
 64.36  way during commission of the violation, the court may order that 
 65.1   the person is prohibited from possessing any type of firearm for 
 65.2   any period longer than three years or for the remainder of the 
 65.3   person's life.  A person who violates this paragraph is guilty 
 65.4   of a gross misdemeanor.  At the time of the adjudication of 
 65.5   delinquency, the court shall inform the respondent whether and 
 65.6   for how long the respondent is prohibited from possessing a 
 65.7   firearm and that it is a gross misdemeanor to violate this 
 65.8   paragraph.  The failure of the court to provide this information 
 65.9   to a respondent does not affect the applicability of the firearm 
 65.10  possession prohibition or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that 
 65.11  respondent. 
 65.12     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), when a 
 65.13  person is adjudicated delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph 
 65.14  (b), (c), or (d), of violating an order for protection/minor 
 65.15  respondent, the court shall inform the respondent that the 
 65.16  respondent is prohibited from possessing a pistol for three 
 65.17  years from the date of adjudication of delinquency and that it 
 65.18  is a gross misdemeanor offense to violate this prohibition.  The 
 65.19  failure of the court to provide this information to a respondent 
 65.20  does not affect the applicability of the pistol possession 
 65.21  prohibition or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that respondent. 
 65.22     (c) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), a person 
 65.23  is not entitled to possess a pistol if the person has been 
 65.24  adjudicated delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), 
 65.25  or (d), of violating an order for protection/minor respondent, 
 65.26  unless three years have elapsed from the date of adjudication of 
 65.27  delinquency and, during that time, the person has not been 
 65.28  adjudicated delinquent or convicted of any other violation of 
 65.29  this section or Minnesota Statutes, chapter 518B.  Property 
 65.30  rights may not be abated but access may be restricted by the 
 65.31  courts.  A person who possesses a pistol in violation of this 
 65.32  paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. 
 65.33     (d) If the court determines that a person adjudicated 
 65.34  delinquent under subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), (c), or (d), of 
 65.35  violating an order for protection/minor respondent owns or 
 65.36  possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the commission 
 66.1   of the violation, it shall order that the firearm be summarily 
 66.2   forfeited under Minnesota Statutes, section 609.5316, 
 66.3   subdivision 3. 
 66.4      Sec. 7.  Laws 1997, chapter 239, article 10, section 1, is 
 66.5   amended to read: 
 66.6      Section 1.  [PILOT PROGRAM.] 
 66.7      Actions under sections 2 to 26 are limited to a pilot 
 66.8   program in the 4th judicial district for the period June 1, 
 66.9   1998, through July 31, 1999 2000.  At the conclusion of the 
 66.10  pilot period, the 4th judicial district shall report to the 
 66.11  legislature on the number of petitions filed under sections 2 to 
 66.12  26, the relationship of the parties, and the disposition of each 
 66.13  petition. 
 66.14     Sec. 8.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
 66.15     Sections 1 and 2 are effective August 1, 1998, and apply to 
 66.16  crimes committed on or after that date.  Sections 3, 4, 6, and 7 
 66.17  are effective June 1, 1998, and apply to offenses committed on 
 66.18  or after that date. 
 66.19                             ARTICLE 6 
 66.20                       SENTENCING PROVISIONS 
 66.21     Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 244.05, 
 66.22  subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 66.23     Subd. 4.  [MINIMUM IMPRISONMENT, LIFE SENTENCE.] An inmate 
 66.24  serving a mandatory life sentence under section 609.184 must not 
 66.25  be given supervised release under this section.  An inmate 
 66.26  serving a mandatory life sentence under section 609.185, clause 
 66.27  (1), (3), (5), or (6); 609.1095, subdivision 4; or 609.346, 
 66.28  subdivision 2a, must not be given supervised release under this 
 66.29  section without having served a minimum term of 30 years.  An 
 66.30  inmate serving a mandatory life sentence under section 609.385 
 66.31  must not be given supervised release under this section without 
 66.32  having served a minimum term of imprisonment of 17 years. 
 66.33     Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 244.05, 
 66.34  subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
 66.35     Subd. 5.  [SUPERVISED RELEASE, LIFE SENTENCE.] (a) The 
 66.36  commissioner of corrections may, under rules promulgated by the 
 67.1   commissioner, give supervised release to an inmate serving a 
 67.2   mandatory life sentence under section 609.185, clause (1), (3), 
 67.3   (5), or (6); 609.1095, subdivision 4; 609.346, subdivision 2a; 
 67.4   or 609.385 after the inmate has served the minimum term of 
 67.5   imprisonment specified in subdivision 4. 
 67.6      (b) The commissioner shall require the preparation of a 
 67.7   community investigation report and shall consider the findings 
 67.8   of the report when making a supervised release decision under 
 67.9   this subdivision.  The report shall reflect the sentiment of the 
 67.10  various elements of the community toward the inmate, both at the 
 67.11  time of the offense and at the present time.  The report shall 
 67.12  include the views of the sentencing judge, the prosecutor, any 
 67.13  law enforcement personnel who may have been involved in the 
 67.14  case, and any successors to these individuals who may have 
 67.15  information relevant to the supervised release decision.  The 
 67.16  report shall also include the views of the victim and the 
 67.17  victim's family unless the victim or the victim's family chooses 
 67.18  not to participate. 
 67.19     (c) The commissioner shall make reasonable efforts to 
 67.20  notify the victim, in advance, of the time and place of the 
 67.21  inmate's supervised release review hearing.  The victim has a 
 67.22  right to submit an oral or written statement at the review 
 67.23  hearing.  The statement may summarize the harm suffered by the 
 67.24  victim as a result of the crime and give the victim's 
 67.25  recommendation on whether the inmate should be given supervised 
 67.26  release at this time.  The commissioner must consider the 
 67.27  victim's statement when making the supervised release decision. 
 67.28     (d) As used in this subdivision, "victim" means the 
 67.29  individual who suffered harm as a result of the inmate's crime 
 67.30  or, if the individual is deceased, the deceased's surviving 
 67.31  spouse or next of kin. 
 67.32     Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.01, 
 67.33  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 67.34     Subdivision 1.  [PURPOSES.] This chapter may be cited as 
 67.35  the criminal code of 1963.  Its provisions shall be construed 
 67.36  according to the fair import of its terms, to promote justice, 
 68.1   and to effect its purposes which are declared to be: 
 68.2      (1) to protect the public safety and welfare by preventing 
 68.3   the commission of crime through the deterring effect of the 
 68.4   sentences authorized, the rehabilitation of those convicted, and 
 68.5   their confinement when the public safety and interest requires; 
 68.6   and 
 68.7      (2) to protect the individual against the misuse of the 
 68.8   criminal law by fairly defining the acts and omissions 
 68.9   prohibited, authorizing sentences reasonably related to the 
 68.10  conduct and character of the convicted person, and prescribing 
 68.11  fair and reasonable postconviction procedures; and 
 68.12     (3) to authorize concurrent sentences of incarceration in a 
 68.13  correctional facility for offenses involving separate victims or 
 68.14  behavioral incidents only when the sentencing court finds good 
 68.15  cause, based on substantial and compelling reasons, for 
 68.16  concurrent sentencing.  
 68.17     Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.095, is 
 68.18  amended to read: 
 68.19     609.095 [LIMITS OF SENTENCES.] 
 68.20     (a) The legislature has the exclusive authority to define 
 68.21  crimes and offenses and the range of the sentences or 
 68.22  punishments for their violation.  No other or different sentence 
 68.23  or punishment shall be imposed for the commission of a crime 
 68.24  than is authorized by this chapter or other applicable law.  
 68.25     (b) Except as provided in section 152.18 or upon agreement 
 68.26  of the parties, a court may not refuse to adjudicate the guilt 
 68.27  of a defendant who tenders a guilty plea in accordance with 
 68.28  Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure, rule 15, or who has been 
 68.29  found guilty by a court or jury following a trial. 
 68.30     (c) Paragraph (b) does not supersede Minnesota Rules of 
 68.31  Criminal Procedure, rule 26.04. 
 68.32     Sec. 5.  [LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE.] 
 68.33     Sections 6 to 9 recodify and clarify current laws relating 
 68.34  to increased sentences for certain dangerous or repeat offenders 
 68.35  in order to group them together near the beginning of the 
 68.36  criminal code.  This recodification aims to unify these various 
 69.1   increased sentence provisions to facilitate their use and is not 
 69.2   intended to result in any substantive change in the recodified 
 69.3   sections. 
 69.4      Sec. 6.  [609.106] [HEINOUS CRIMES.] 
 69.5      Subdivision 1.  [TERMS.] (a) A "heinous crime" is:  
 69.6      (1) a violation or attempted violation of section 609.185 
 69.7   or 609.19; 
 69.8      (2) a violation of section 609.195 or 609.221; or 
 69.9      (3) a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344, if 
 69.10  the offense was committed with force or violence. 
 69.11     (b) "Previous conviction" means a conviction in Minnesota 
 69.12  for a heinous crime or a conviction elsewhere for conduct that 
 69.13  would have been a heinous crime under this chapter if committed 
 69.14  in Minnesota.  The term includes any conviction that occurred 
 69.15  before the commission of the present offense of conviction, but 
 69.16  does not include a conviction if 15 years have elapsed since the 
 69.17  person was discharged from the sentence imposed for the offense. 
 69.18     Subd. 2.  [LIFE WITHOUT RELEASE.] The court shall sentence 
 69.19  a person to life imprisonment without possibility of release 
 69.20  under the following circumstances: 
 69.21     (1) the person is convicted of first degree murder under 
 69.22  section 609.185, clause (2) or (4); or 
 69.23     (2) the person is convicted of first degree murder under 
 69.24  section 609.185, clause (1), (3), (5), or (6), and the court 
 69.25  determines on the record at the time of sentencing that the 
 69.26  person has one or more previous convictions for a heinous crime. 
 69.27     Sec. 7.  [609.107] [MANDATORY PENALTY FOR CERTAIN 
 69.28  MURDERERS.] 
 69.29     When a person is convicted of violating section 609.19 or 
 69.30  609.195, the court shall sentence the person to the statutory 
 69.31  maximum sentence for the offense if the person was previously 
 69.32  convicted of a heinous crime as defined in section 609.106 and 
 69.33  15 years have not elapsed since the person was discharged from 
 69.34  the sentence imposed for that conviction.  The court may not 
 69.35  stay the imposition or execution of the sentence, 
 69.36  notwithstanding section 609.135. 
 70.1      Sec. 8.  [609.108] [MANDATORY INCREASED SENTENCES FOR 
 70.2   CERTAIN PATTERNED AND PREDATORY SEX OFFENDERS; NO PRIOR 
 70.3   CONVICTION REQUIRED.] 
 70.4      Subdivision 1.  [MANDATORY INCREASED SENTENCE.] (a) A court 
 70.5   shall commit a person to the commissioner of corrections for a 
 70.6   period of time that is not less than double the presumptive 
 70.7   sentence under the sentencing guidelines and not more than the 
 70.8   statutory maximum, or if the statutory maximum is less than 
 70.9   double the presumptive sentence, for a period of time that is 
 70.10  equal to the statutory maximum, if: 
 70.11     (1) the court is imposing an executed sentence, based on a 
 70.12  sentencing guidelines presumptive imprisonment sentence or a 
 70.13  dispositional departure for aggravating circumstances or a 
 70.14  mandatory minimum sentence, on a person convicted of committing 
 70.15  or attempting to commit a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, 
 70.16  609.344, or 609.345, or on a person convicted of committing or 
 70.17  attempting to commit any other crime listed in subdivision 2 if 
 70.18  it reasonably appears to the court that the crime was motivated 
 70.19  by the offender's sexual impulses or was part of a predatory 
 70.20  pattern of behavior that had criminal sexual conduct as its 
 70.21  goal; 
 70.22     (2) the court finds that the offender is a danger to public 
 70.23  safety; and 
 70.24     (3) the court finds that the offender needs long-term 
 70.25  treatment or supervision beyond the presumptive term of 
 70.26  imprisonment and supervised release.  The finding must be based 
 70.27  on a professional assessment by an examiner experienced in 
 70.28  evaluating sex offenders that concludes that the offender is a 
 70.29  patterned sex offender.  The assessment must contain the facts 
 70.30  upon which the conclusion is based, with reference to the 
 70.31  offense history of the offender or the severity of the current 
 70.32  offense, the social history of the offender, and the results of 
 70.33  an examination of the offender's mental status unless the 
 70.34  offender refuses to be examined.  The conclusion may not be 
 70.35  based on testing alone.  A patterned sex offender is one whose 
 70.36  criminal sexual behavior is so engrained that the risk of 
 71.1   reoffending is great without intensive psychotherapeutic 
 71.2   intervention or other long-term controls. 
 71.3      (b) The court shall consider imposing a sentence under this 
 71.4   section whenever a person is convicted of violating section 
 71.5   609.342 or 609.343. 
 71.6      Subd. 2.  [INCREASED STATUTORY MAXIMUM.] If the factfinder 
 71.7   determines, at the time of the trial or the guilty plea, that a 
 71.8   predatory offense was motivated by, committed in the course of, 
 71.9   or committed in furtherance of sexual contact or penetration, as 
 71.10  defined in section 609.341, and the court is imposing a sentence 
 71.11  under subdivision 1, the statutory maximum imprisonment penalty 
 71.12  for the offense is 40 years, notwithstanding the statutory 
 71.13  maximum imprisonment penalty otherwise provided for the offense. 
 71.14     Subd. 3.  [PREDATORY CRIME.] A predatory crime is a felony 
 71.15  violation of section 609.185, 609.19, 609.195, 609.20, 609.205, 
 71.16  609.221, 609.222, 609.223, 609.24, 609.245, 609.25, 609.255, 
 71.17  609.342, 609.343, 609.344, 609.345, 609.365, 609.498, 609.561, 
 71.18  or 609.582, subdivision 1. 
 71.19     Subd. 4.  [DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY.] The court shall base 
 71.20  its finding that the offender is a danger to public safety on 
 71.21  any of the following factors: 
 71.22     (1) the crime involved an aggravating factor that would 
 71.23  justify a durational departure from the presumptive sentence 
 71.24  under the sentencing guidelines; 
 71.25     (2) the offender previously committed or attempted to 
 71.26  commit a predatory crime or a violation of section 609.224 or 
 71.27  609.2242, including: 
 71.28     (i) an offense committed as a juvenile that would have been 
 71.29  a predatory crime or a violation of section 609.224 or 609.2242 
 71.30  if committed by an adult; or 
 71.31     (ii) a violation or attempted violation of a similar law of 
 71.32  any other state or the United States; or 
 71.33     (3) the offender planned or prepared for the crime prior to 
 71.34  its commission. 
 71.35     Subd. 5.  [DEPARTURE FROM GUIDELINES.] A sentence imposed 
 71.36  under subdivision 1 is a departure from the sentencing 
 72.1   guidelines. 
 72.2      Subd. 6.  [CONDITIONAL RELEASE.] At the time of sentencing 
 72.3   under subdivision 1, the court shall provide that after the 
 72.4   offender has completed the sentence imposed, less any good time 
 72.5   earned by an offender whose crime was committed before August 1, 
 72.6   1993, the commissioner of corrections shall place the offender 
 72.7   on conditional release for the remainder of the statutory 
 72.8   maximum period, or for ten years, whichever is longer. 
 72.9      The conditions of release may include successful completion 
 72.10  of treatment and aftercare in a program approved by the 
 72.11  commissioner, satisfaction of the release conditions specified 
 72.12  in section 244.05, subdivision 6, and any other conditions the 
 72.13  commissioner considers appropriate.  Before the offender is 
 72.14  released, the commissioner shall notify the sentencing court, 
 72.15  the prosecutor in the jurisdiction where the offender was 
 72.16  sentenced, and the victim of the offender's crime, where 
 72.17  available, of the terms of the offender's conditional release.  
 72.18  If the offender fails to meet any condition of release, the 
 72.19  commissioner may revoke the offender's conditional release and

 73.1      Subd. 2.  [PRESUMPTIVE EXECUTED SENTENCE.] Except as 
 73.2   provided in subdivision 3 or 4, if a person is convicted under 
 73.3   sections 609.342 to 609.345, within 15 years of a previous sex 
 73.4   offense conviction, the court shall commit the defendant to the

 73.8   242.19, 243.05, 609.11, 609.12, and 609.135.  The court may stay 
 73.9   the execution of the sentence imposed under this subdivision 
 73.10  only if it finds that a professional assessment indicates the 
 73.11  offender is accepted by and can respond to treatment at a 
 73.12  long-term inpatient program exclusively treating sex offenders 
 73.13  and approved by the commissioner of corrections.  If the court

 73.23  subdivision; 
 73.24     (2) the person is convicted under section 609.342; and 
 73.25     (3) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 73.26  sentencing that any of the following circumstances exists: 
 73.27     (i) the person has previously been sentenced under section 
 73.28  609.1095; 
 73.29     (ii) the person has one previous sex offense conviction for 
 73.30  a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344 that 
 73.31  occurred before August 1, 1989, for which the person was 
 73.32  sentenced to prison in an upward durational departure from the 
 73.33  sentencing guidelines that resulted in a sentence at least twice 
 73.34  as long as the presumptive sentence; or 
 73.35     (iii) the person has two previous sex offense convictions 
 73.36  under section 609.342, 609.343, or 609.344.

 74.9   subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); or 609.343, 
 74.10  subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); and 
 74.11     (2) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 74.12  sentencing that:  
 74.13     (i) the crime involved an aggravating factor that would 
 74.14  provide grounds for an upward departure under the sentencing 
 74.15  guidelines other than the aggravating factor applicable to 
 74.16  repeat criminal sexual conduct convictions; and 
 74.17     (ii) the person has a previous sex offense conviction under

 74.29  committed after the person was earlier convicted and sentenced 
 74.30  for a sex offense, both convictions preceded the commission of 
 74.31  the present offense of conviction, and 15 years have not elapsed 
 74.32  since the person was discharged from the sentence imposed for 
 74.33  the second conviction.  A "sex offense" is a violation of 
 74.34  sections 609.342 to 609.345 or any similar statute of the United 
 74.35  States, this state, or any other state.

 75.2   sentence recommended by the sentencing guidelines if: 
 75.3      (1) the person is convicted under section 609.342, 
 75.4   subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); 609.343, 
 75.5   subdivision 1, clause (c), (d), (e), or (f); or 609.344, 
 75.6   subdivision 1, clause (c) or (d); and 
 75.7      (2) the court determines on the record at the time of 
 75.8   sentencing that the crime involved an aggravating factor that 
 75.9   would provide grounds for an upward departure under the 
 75.10  sentencing guidelines. 
 75.11     Subd. 7.  [CONDITIONAL RELEASE OF SEX OFFENDERS.] (a) 
 75.12  Notwithstanding the statutory maximum sentence otherwise 
 75.13  applicable to the offense or any provision of the sentencing 
 75.14  guidelines, when a court sentences a person to prison for a 
 75.15  violation of section 609.342, 609.343, 609.344, or 609.345, the 
 75.16  court shall provide that after the person has completed the 
 75.17  sentence imposed, the commissioner of corrections shall place 
 75.18  the person on conditional release.  If the person was convicted 
 75.19  for a violation of section 609.342, 609.343, 609.344, or 
 75.20  609.345, the person shall be placed on conditional release for 
 75.21  five years, minus the time the person served on supervised 
 75.22  release.  If the person was convicted for a violation of one of 
 75.23  those sections a second or subsequent time, or sentenced under 
 75.24  subdivision 4 to a mandatory departure, the person shall be 
 75.25  placed on conditional release for ten years, minus the time the 
 75.26  person served on supervised release. 
 75.27     (b) The conditions of release may include successful 
 75.28  completion of treatment and aftercare in a program approved by 
 75.29  the commissioner, satisfaction of the release conditions 
 75.30  specified in section 244.05, subdivision 6, and any other 
 75.31  conditions the commissioner considers appropriate.  If the 
 75.32  offender fails to meet any condition of release, the 
 75.33  commissioner may revoke the offender's conditional release and 
 75.34  order that the offender serve the remaining portion of the 
 75.35  conditional release term in prison.  The commissioner shall not 
 75.36  dismiss the offender from supervision before the conditional 
 76.1   release term expires. 
 76.2      Conditional release under this subdivision is governed by 
 76.3   provisions relating to supervised release, except as otherwise 
 76.4   provided in this subdivision, section 244.04, subdivision 1, or 
 76.5   244.05. 
 76.6      (c) The commissioner shall pay the cost of treatment of a 
 76.7   person released under this subdivision.  This section does not 
 76.8   require the commissioner to accept or retain an offender in a 
 76.9   treatment program.

 80.16     (b) The court may impose separate sentences of imprisonment 
 80.17  on a defendant for two or more crimes and require the sentences

 81.31  tending to establish a common scheme or plan of similar sexual 
 81.32  conduct under circumstances similar to the case at issue.  In 
 81.33  order to find a common scheme or plan, the judge must find that 
 81.34  the victim made prior allegations of sexual assault which were 
 81.35  fabricated; and 
 81.36     (ii) evidence of the victim's previous sexual conduct with 
 82.1   the accused.  
 82.2      (b) When the prosecution's case includes evidence of semen, 
 82.3   pregnancy, or disease at the time of the incident or, in the 
 82.4   case of pregnancy, between the time of the incident and trial, 
 82.5   evidence of specific instances of the victim's previous sexual 
 82.6   conduct is admissible solely to show the source of the semen, 
 82.7   pregnancy, or disease. 
 82.8      Sec. 18.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 82.9   subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
 82.10     Subd. 5.  In a prosecution under sections 609.109 or 
 82.11  609.342 to 609.346 609.3451, the court shall not instruct the 
 82.12  jury to the effect that: 
 82.13     (a) It may be inferred that a victim who has previously 
 82.14  consented to sexual intercourse with persons other than the 
 82.15  accused would be therefore more likely to consent to sexual 
 82.16  intercourse again; or 
 82.17     (b) The victim's previous or subsequent sexual conduct in 
 82.18  and of itself may be considered in determining the credibility 
 82.19  of the victim; or 
 82.20     (c) Criminal sexual conduct is a crime easily charged by a 
 82.21  victim but very difficult to disprove by an accused because of 
 82.22  the heinous nature of the crime; or 
 82.23     (d) The jury should scrutinize the testimony of the victim 
 82.24  any more closely than it should scrutinize the testimony of any 
 82.25  witness in any felony prosecution.  
 82.26     Sec. 19.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.347, 
 82.27  subdivision 6, is amended to read: 
 82.28     Subd. 6.  (a) In a prosecution under sections 609.109 or 
 82.29  609.342 to 609.346 609.3451 involving a psychotherapist and 
 82.30  patient, evidence of the patient's personal or medical history 
 82.31  is not admissible except when:  
 82.32     (1) the accused requests a hearing at least three business 
 82.33  days prior to trial and makes an offer of proof of the relevancy 
 82.34  of the history; and 
 82.35     (2) the court finds that the history is relevant and that 
 82.36  the probative value of the history outweighs its prejudicial 
 83.1   value.  
 83.2      (b) The court shall allow the admission only of specific 
 83.3   information or examples of conduct of the victim that are 
 83.4   determined by the court to be relevant.  The court's order shall 
 83.5   detail the information or conduct that is admissible and no 
 83.6   other evidence of the history may be introduced. 
 83.7      (c) Violation of the terms of the order is grounds for 
 83.8   mistrial but does not prevent the retrial of the accused.  
 83.9      Sec. 20.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 609.348, is 
 83.10  amended to read: 
 83.11     609.348 [MEDICAL PURPOSES; EXCLUSION.] 
 83.12     Sections 609.109 and 609.342 to 609.346 609.3451 do not 
 83.13  apply to sexual penetration or sexual contact when done for a 
 83.14  bona fide medical purpose. 
 83.15     Sec. 21.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 631.045, is 
 83.16  amended to read: 
 83.17     631.045 [EXCLUDING SPECTATORS FROM THE COURTROOM.] 
 83.18     At the trial of a complaint or indictment for a violation 
 83.19  of sections 609.109, 609.341 to 609.346 609.3451, or 617.246, 
 83.20  subdivision 2, when a minor under 18 years of age is the person 
 83.21  upon, with, or against whom the crime is alleged to have been 
 83.22  committed, the judge may exclude the public from the courtroom 
 83.23  during the victim's testimony or during all or part of the 
 83.24  remainder of the trial upon a showing that closure is necessary 
 83.25  to protect a witness or ensure fairness in the trial.  The judge 
 83.26  shall give the prosecutor, defendant and members of the public 
 83.27  the opportunity to object to the closure before a closure order. 
 83.28  The judge shall specify the reasons for closure in an order 
 83.29  closing all or part of the trial.  Upon closure the judge shall 
 83.30  only admit persons who have a direct interest in the case.  
 83.31     Sec. 22.  [DIRECTIVES TO SENTENCING GUIDELINES COMMISSION.] 
 83.32     (a) The sentencing guidelines commission is directed to 
 83.33  amend section II.F of the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines to 
 83.34  make it consistent with Minnesota Statutes, section 609.15. 
 83.35     (b) The sentencing guidelines commission shall modify 
 83.36  sentencing guideline section II.F to permit courts to impose 
 84.1   consecutive sentences in any case in which: 
 84.2      (1) the defendant is sentenced for multiple current felony 
 84.3   offenses and the court stays imposition or execution of sentence 
 84.4   for all but one of the offenses; or 
 84.5      (2) the defendant, at the time of sentencing, is subject to 
 84.6   a prior felony sentence, the imposition or execution of which 
 84.7   was stayed. 
 84.8      A consecutive sentence imposed under this section is not a 
 84.9   departure from the sentencing guidelines. 
 84.10     Sec. 23.  [REVISOR'S INSTRUCTION.] 
 84.11     In each section of Minnesota Statutes referred to in column

 85.10  convictions in sentencing offenders under section 10. 
 85.11                             ARTICLE 7 
 85.12            PRETRIAL AND CONDITIONAL RELEASE PROVISIONS 
 85.13     Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 243.05, 
 85.14  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 85.15     Subdivision 1.  [CONDITIONAL RELEASE.] (a) The commissioner 
 85.16  of corrections may parole any person sentenced to confinement in 
 85.17  any state correctional facility for adults under the control of 
 85.18  the commissioner of corrections, provided that:  
 85.19     (a) (1) no inmate serving a life sentence for committing 
 85.20  murder before May 1, 1980, other than murder committed in 
 85.21  violation of clause (1) of section 609.185 who has not been 
 85.22  previously convicted of a felony shall be paroled without having 
 85.23  served 20 years, less the diminution that would have been 
 85.24  allowed for good conduct had the sentence been for 20 years; 
 85.25     (b) (2) no inmate serving a life sentence for committing 
 85.26  murder before May 1, 1980, who has been previously convicted of

 85.31  have been allowed for good conduct had the sentence been for 25 
 85.32  years; 
 85.33     (c) (3) any inmate sentenced prior to September 1, 1963, 
 85.34  who would be eligible for parole had the inmate been sentenced 
 85.35  after September 1, 1963, shall be eligible for parole; and 
 85.36     (d) (4) any new rule or policy or change of rule or policy 
 86.1   adopted by the commissioner of corrections which has the effect 
 86.2   of postponing eligibility for parole has prospective effect only 
 86.3   and applies only with respect to persons committing offenses 
 86.4   after the effective date of the new rule or policy or change.  
 86.5      (b) Upon being paroled and released, an inmate is and 
 86.6   remains in the legal custody and under the control of the 
 86.7   commissioner, subject at any time to be returned to a facility 
 86.8   of the department of corrections established by law for the 
 86.9   confinement or treatment of convicted persons and the parole 
 86.10  rescinded by the commissioner.  
 86.11     (c) The written order of the commissioner of corrections,

 86.13  correctional investigator, or state parole and probation agent 
 86.14  to retake and place in actual custody any person on parole or 
 86.15  supervised release, but.  In addition, when it appears necessary 
 86.16  in order to prevent escape or enforce discipline, any state 
 86.17  parole and probation agent or state correctional investigator 
 86.18  may, without order of warrant, when it appears necessary in 
 86.19  order to prevent escape or enforce discipline, take and detain a 
 86.20  parolee or person on supervised release or work release and 
 86.21  bring the person to the commissioner for action.  
 86.22     (d) The written order of the commissioner of corrections is 
 86.23  sufficient authority for any peace officer, state correctional 
 86.24  investigator, or state parole and probation agent to retake and 
 86.25  place in actual custody any person on probation under the 
 86.26  supervision of the commissioner pursuant to section 609.135, 
 86.27  but.  Additionally, when it appears necessary in order to 
 86.28  prevent escape or enforce discipline, any state parole and 
 86.29  probation agent or state correctional investigator may, without 
 86.30  an order, when it appears necessary in order to prevent escape 
 86.31  or enforce discipline, retake and detain a probationer and bring 
 86.32  the probationer before the court for further proceedings under 
 86.33  section 609.14.  
 86.34     (e) The written order of the commissioner of corrections is 
 86.35  sufficient authority for any peace officer, state correctional 
 86.36  investigator, or state parole and probation agent to detain any 
 87.1   person on pretrial release who absconds from pretrial release or 
 87.2   fails to abide by the conditions of pretrial release.  
 87.3      (f) Persons conditionally released, and those on probation 
 87.4   under the supervision of the commissioner of corrections 
 87.5   pursuant to section 609.135 may be placed within or outside the 
 87.6   boundaries of the state at the discretion of the commissioner of 
 87.7   corrections or the court, and the limits fixed for these persons 
 87.8   may be enlarged or reduced according to their conduct. 
 87.9      (g) Except as otherwise provided in subdivision 1b, in 
 87.10  considering applications for conditional release or discharge, 
 87.11  the commissioner is not required to hear oral argument from any 
 87.12  attorney or other person not connected with an adult 
 87.13  correctional facility of the department of corrections in favor 
 87.14  of or against the parole or release of any inmates, but.  The 
 87.15  commissioner may institute inquiries by correspondence, taking 
 87.16  testimony, or otherwise, as to the previous history, physical or 
 87.17  mental condition, and character of the inmate, and, to that end 
 87.18  shall have, has the authority to require the attendance of the 
 87.19  chief executive officer of any state adult correctional facility 
 87.20  and the production of the records of these facilities, and to 
 87.21  compel the attendance of witnesses.  The commissioner is 
 87.22  authorized to administer oaths to witnesses for these purposes. 
 87.23     (h) Unless the district court directs otherwise, state 
 87.24  parole and probation agents may require a person who is under 
 87.25  the supervision of the commissioner of corrections to perform 
 87.26  community work service for violating a condition of probation 
 87.27  imposed by the court.  Community work service may be imposed for 
 87.28  the purpose of protecting the public, to aid the offender's 
 87.29  rehabilitation, or both.  Agents may impose up to eight hours of 
 87.30  community work service for each violation and up to a total of 
 87.31  24 hours per offender per 12-month period, beginning with the 
 87.32  date on which community work service is first imposed.  The 
 87.33  commissioner may authorize an additional 40 hours of community 
 87.34  work services, for a total of 64 hours per offender per 12-month 
 87.35  period, beginning with the date on which community work service 
 87.36  is first imposed.  At the time community work service is 
 88.1   imposed, parole and probation agents are required to provide 
 88.2   written notice to the offender that states: 
 88.3      (1) the condition of probation that has been violated; 
 88.4      (2) the number of hours of community work service imposed 
 88.5   for the violation; and 
 88.6      (3) the total number of hours of community work service 
 88.7   imposed to date in the 12-month period. 
 88.8      An offender may challenge the imposition of community work 
 88.9   service by filing a petition in district court.  An offender 
 88.10  must file the petition within five days of receiving written 
 88.11  notice that community work service is being imposed.  If the 
 88.12  offender challenges the imposition of community work service, 
 88.13  the offender bears the burden of showing that the imposition of 
 88.14  community work service is unreasonable under the circumstances.  
 88.15     Community work service includes sentencing to service.  
 88.16     Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section 
 88.17  244.19, is amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 88.18     Subd. 3a.  [INTERMEDIATE SANCTIONS.] Unless the district 
 88.19  court directs otherwise, county probation officers may require a 
 88.20  person committed to the officer's care by the court to perform 
 88.21  community work service for violating a condition of probation 
 88.22  imposed by the court.  Community work service may be imposed for 
 88.23  the purpose of protecting the public, to aid the offender's 
 88.24  rehabilitation, or both.  County probation officers may impose 
 88.25  up to eight hours of community work service for each violation 
 88.26  and up to a total of 24 hours per offender per 12-month period, 
 88.27  beginning with the date on which community work service is first 
 88.28  imposed.  The court services director may authorize an 
 88.29  additional 40 hours of community work services, for a total of 
 88.30  64 hours per offender per 12-month period, beginning on the date 
 88.31  on which community work service is first imposed.  At the time 
 88.32  community work service is imposed, county probation agents are 
 88.33  required to provide written notice to the offender that states: 
 88.34     (1) the condition of probation that has been violated; 
 88.35     (2) the number of hours of community work service imposed 
 88.36  for the violation; and 
 89.1      (3) the total number of hours of community work service 
 89.2   imposed to date in the 12-month period. 
 89.3      An offender may challenge the imposition of community work 
 89.4   service by filing a petition in district court.  An offender 
 89.5   must file the petition within five days of receiving written 
 89.6   notice that community work service is being imposed.  If the 
 89.7   offender challenges the imposition of community work service, 
 89.8   the offender bears the burden of showing that the imposition of 
 89.9   community work service is unreasonable under the circumstances.  
 89.10     Community work service includes sentencing to service.  
 89.11     Sec. 3.  [244.195] [DETENTION AND RELEASE; PROBATIONERS,

100.36     629.53 [PROVIDING RELEASE ON BAIL; COMMITMENT.] 
101.1      Subdivision 1.  [PROVIDING RELEASE ON BAIL.] Prior to 
101.2   conviction, a person charged with a criminal offense may be 
101.3   released with or without bail in accordance with rule 6.02 of 
101.4   the rules of criminal procedure.  Money bail is the property of 
101.5   the accused, whether deposited by that person or by a third 
101.6   person on the accused's behalf.  When money bail is accepted by 
101.7   a judge, that judge shall order it to be deposited with the 
101.8   court administrator.  The court administrator shall retain it 
101.9   until the final disposition of the case and the final order of 
101.10  the court disposing of the case.  Upon release, the amount 
101.11  released must be paid to the accused personally or upon that 
101.12  person's written order.  In case of conviction, the judge may 
101.13  order the money bail deposit to be applied to any fine or 
101.14  restitution imposed on the defendant by the court and, if the 
101.15  fine or restitution is less than the deposit, order the balance 
101.16  to be paid to the defendant.  Money bail deposited with the 
101.17  court or any officer of it is exempt from garnishment or levy 
101.18  under attachment or execution. 
101.19     Subd. 2.  [RELEASE FOLLOWING CONVICTION OR GUILTY PLEA.] (a)
101.20  The court must detain and may not release a person who is 
101.21  awaiting sentencing after a conviction for an offense when the 
101.22  court has information that the sentencing guidelines presume 
101.23  that the defendant will be committed to the commissioner of 
101.24  corrections under an executed sentence for the offense.  
101.25     (b) Except as provided in paragraph (c), the court also 
101.26  must detain and may not release a person who has waived any 
101.27  right to cash bail while awaiting sentencing as described in 
101.28  section 630.315 or 631.031.  
101.29     (c) The court may release a person on bail if the 
101.30  prosecution and defense have entered into an agreement 
101.31  recommending a dispositional departure and no additional 
101.32  incarceration in a local facility. 
101.33     Sec. 15.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 629.715, 
101.34  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
101.35     Subdivision 1.  [JUDICIAL REVIEW; RELEASE.] (a) When a 
101.36  person is arrested for a crime against the person, the judge 
102.1   before whom the arrested person is taken shall review the facts 
102.2   surrounding the arrest and detention.  If the person was 
102.3   arrested or detained for committing a crime of violence, as 
102.4   defined in section 629.725, The prosecutor or other appropriate 
102.5   person shall present relevant information involving the victim 
102.6   or the victim's family's account of the alleged crime to the 
102.7   judge to be considered in determining the arrested person's 
102.8   release.  The arrested person must be ordered released pending 
102.9   trial or hearing on the person's personal recognizance or on an 
102.10  order to appear or upon the execution of an unsecured bond in a 
102.11  specified amount unless the judge determines that release (1) 
102.12  will be inimical to public safety, (2) will create a threat of 
102.13  bodily harm to the arrested person, the victim of the alleged 
102.14  crime, or another, or (3) will not reasonably assure the 
102.15  appearance of the arrested person at subsequent proceedings.  
102.16     (b) If the judge determines release under paragraph (a) is 
102.17  not advisable, the judge may shall set bail and impose any 
102.18  conditions of release that will protect the safety of the 
102.19  victim, public safety, and reasonably assure the appearance of 
102.20  the person for reappearance at subsequent proceedings, or will 
102.21  protect the victim of the alleged crime, or may fix the amount 
102.22  of money bail without other conditions upon which the arrested 
102.23  person may obtain release.  The court may also set bail without 
102.24  any other conditions in an amount that will protect the safety 
102.25  of the victim and the public.  In making a public safety 
102.26  determination under this subdivision, the court shall consider, 
102.27  among other matters, the safety of persons and property and 
102.28  whether the arrested person has a prior record of having 
102.29  committed crimes against persons or property.  
102.30     Sec. 16.  [630.315] [GUILTY PLEA; WAIVER OF BAIL.] 
102.31     (a) A defendant must, as a condition of entering the 
102.32  factual basis for a guilty plea, waive any right to cash bail 
102.33  pending sentencing when the court has information that the 
102.34  sentencing guidelines presume that the defendant will be 
102.35  committed to the commissioner of corrections under an executed 
102.36  sentence for the offense.  This waiver must occur at the time a 
103.1   defendant tenders the factual basis for a guilty plea. 
103.2      (b) Before the defendant waives any right to cash bail, the 
103.3   court must determine that: 
103.4      (1) the defendant understands the consequences of the 
103.5   waiver; and 
103.6      (2) the waiver is made knowingly, voluntarily, and 
103.7   willingly. 
103.8      If the court determines that the factors in clauses (1) and 
103.9   (2) are satisfied, the court must accept the defendant's waiver, 
103.10  regardless of whether the court postpones acceptance or 
103.11  rejection of the guilty plea until it has received the results 
103.12  of the presentence investigation. 
103.13     If the court determines that any one or more of the factors 
103.14  in clauses (1) and (2) are not satisfied, the court may not 
103.15  accept either the waiver or the factual basis for the guilty 
103.16  plea. 
103.17     Sec. 17.  [631.031] [GUILTY PLEA; WAIVER OF BAIL.] 
103.18     (a) A defendant must, as a condition of entering the 
103.19  factual basis for a guilty plea, waive any right to cash bail 
103.20  pending sentencing when the court has information that the 
103.21  sentencing guidelines presume that the defendant will be 
103.22  committed to the commissioner of corrections under an executed 
103.23  sentence for the offense.  This waiver must occur at the time a 
103.24  defendant tenders the factual basis for a guilty plea. 
103.25     (b) Before the defendant waives any right to cash bail, the 
103.26  court must determine that: 
103.27     (1) the defendant understands the consequences of the 
103.28  waiver; and 
103.29     (2) the waiver is made knowingly, voluntarily, and 
103.30  willingly. 
103.31     If the court determines that the factors in clauses (1) and 
103.32  (2) are satisfied, the court must accept the defendant's waiver, 
103.33  regardless of whether the court postpones acceptance or 
103.34  rejection of the guilty plea until it has received the results 
103.35  of the presentence investigation. 
103.36     If the court determines that any one or more of the factors 
104.1   in clauses (1) and (2) are not satisfied, the court may not 
104.2   accept either the waiver or the factual basis for the guilty 
104.3   plea. 
104.4      Sec. 18.  [RELEASEE PLAN.] 
104.5      By August 1, 1998, the department of corrections, each 
104.6   county probation agency, and each community corrections act 
104.7   agency, in consultation with local law enforcement agencies, 
104.8   shall develop a plan to provide local law enforcement agencies 
104.9   with relevant information concerning the releasees, terms of 
104.10  release, the releasees' offense history, and other factors that 
104.11  present a risk of violation of the terms and conditions of 
104.12  release.  This plan shall include strategies to identify those 
104.13  offenders most likely to violate the terms of release on an 
104.14  ongoing basis and methods to ensure compliance with the terms of 
104.15  release by those releasees.  
104.16     Sec. 19.  [REQUEST; SUPREME COURT.] 
104.17     The supreme court is requested to include in the Minnesota 
104.18  Rules of Criminal Procedure, rule 15 and its appendices, a 
104.19  provision that states that the defendant agrees that, by 
104.20  pleading guilty to an offense when the court has information 
104.21  that the sentencing guidelines presume that the defendant will 
104.22  be committed to the commissioner of corrections under an 
104.23  executed sentence for the offense, the defendant is waiving any 
104.24  right to cash bail pending sentencing. 
104.25     Sec. 20.  [RULE SUPERSEDED.] 
104.26     Rule 27.01 of the Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure is 
104.27  superseded to the extent it conflicts with section 14. 
104.28     Sec. 21.  [REPEALER.] 
104.29     Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 401.02, subdivision 4; and

106.10  offense enumerated in section 169.126, subdivision 1, it shall 
106.11  impose a chemical dependency assessment charge of $125.  A 
106.12  person shall pay an additional surcharge of $5 if the person is 
106.13  convicted of (i) a violation of section 169.129, or (ii) a 
106.14  violation of this section within five years of a prior impaired 
106.15  driving conviction, as defined in subdivision 3, or a prior 
106.16  conviction for an offense arising out of an arrest for a 
106.17  violation of section 169.121 or 169.129.  This section applies 
106.18  when the sentence is executed, stayed, or suspended.  The court 
106.19  may not waive payment or authorize payment of the assessment 
106.20  charge and surcharge in installments unless it makes written 
106.21  findings on the record that the convicted person is indigent or 
106.22  that the assessment charge and surcharge would create undue 
106.23  hardship for the convicted person or that person's immediate 
106.24  family. 
106.25     The county shall collect and forward to the commissioner of 
106.26  finance $25 of the chemical dependency assessment charge and the

107.5   limits in highway work zones.  The commissioner or local 
107.6   authority is not required to conduct an engineering and traffic

107.13  speed limit shall not exceed 40 miles per hour.  Highway work 
107.14  zone speed limits are effective on erection of appropriate 
107.15  regulatory speed limit signs.  The signs must be removed or 
107.16  covered when they are not required.  A speed greater than the 
107.17  posted highway work zone speed limit is unlawful.

107.19  means a segment of highway or street where a road authority or 
107.20  its agent is constructing, reconstructing, or maintaining the 
107.21  physical structure of the roadway, its shoulders, or features 
107.22  adjacent to the roadway, including underground and overhead

107.25  law to the contrary, a person who violates a speed limit 
107.26  established under paragraph (b), or who violates any other 
107.27  provision of this section while in a highway work zone, is 
107.28  assessed an additional surcharge equal to the amount of the fine 
107.29  imposed for the speed violation, but not less than $25.

107.35  political subdivision which regulates the operation or parking 
107.36  of motor vehicles, (2) has been sentenced to the payment of a

108.6   person has the ability to pay the fine or penalty assessment 
108.7   surcharge, the commissioner shall suspend the driver's license 
108.8   of such person for 30 days for a refusal or failure to pay or

119.21  county must provide for payroll deductions to be made in the 
119.22  same manner and under the same conditions as provided for an 
119.23  eligible county employee and the employee's dependents.  Nothing

119.31  county or counties comprising the judicial district. 
119.32     (b) A chief district public defender shall annually submit 
119.33  a comprehensive budget to the state board of public defense.  
119.34  The budget shall be in compliance with standards and forms 
119.35  required by the board and must, at a minimum, include detailed 
119.36  substantiation as to all revenues and expenditures.  The chief 
120.1   district public defender shall, at times and in the form 
120.2   required by the board, submit reports to the board concerning 
120.3   its operations, including the number of cases handled and funds 
120.4   expended for these services. 
120.5      Within ten days after an assistant district public defender 
120.6   is appointed, the district public defender shall certify to the 
120.7   state board of public defense the compensation that has been 
120.8   recommended for the assistant.

120.10  proposed budget of each district public defender to the 
120.11  respective district court administrators and county budget 
120.12  officers for comment before the board's final approval of the 
120.13  budget.  The board shall determine and certify to the respective 
120.14  county boards a final comprehensive budget for the office of the 
120.15  district public defender that includes all expenses.  After the 
120.16  board determines the allocation of the state funds authorized 
120.17  pursuant to paragraph (e), the board shall apportion the 
120.18  expenses of the district public defenders among the several 
120.19  counties and each county shall pay its share in monthly 
120.20  installments.  The county share is the proportion of the total 
120.21  expenses that the population in the county bears to the total 
120.22  population in the district as determined by the last federal 
120.23  census.  If the district public defender or an assistant 
120.24  district public defender is temporarily transferred to a county 
120.25  not situated in that public defender's judicial district, said 
120.26  county shall pay the proportionate part of that public 
120.27  defender's expenses for the services performed in said county.  
120.28     (d) Reimbursement for actual and necessary travel expenses 
120.29  in the conduct of the office of the district public defender 
120.30  shall be charged to either (1) the general expenses of the 
120.31  office, (2) the general expenses of the district for which the 
120.32  expenses were incurred if outside the district, or (3) the

120.36  defense for the board's administration, for the state public 
121.1   defender, for the judicial district public defenders, and for 
121.2   the public defense corporations shall be expended as determined 
121.3   by the board.  In distributing funds to district public 
121.4   defenders, the board shall consider the geographic distribution 
121.5   of public defenders, the equity of compensation among the 
121.6   judicial districts, public defender case loads, and the results 
121.7   of the weighted case load study.

134.11     Subd. 2a.  [CHILD IN NEED OF PROTECTION OR SERVICES.] 
134.12  "Child in need of protection or services" means a child who is 
134.13  in need of protection or services because the child:

134.15     (2)(i) has been a victim of physical or sexual abuse, (ii) 
134.16  resides with or has resided with a victim of domestic child 
134.17  abuse as defined in subdivision 24, (iii) resides with or would

134.21     (3) is without necessary food, clothing, shelter, 
134.22  education, or other required care for the child's physical or

134.24  custodian is unable or unwilling to provide that care; 
134.25     (4) is without the special care made necessary by a 
134.26  physical, mental, or emotional condition because the child's 
134.27  parent, guardian, or custodian is unable or unwilling to provide

134.34  by providing treatment, including appropriate nutrition, 
134.35  hydration, and medication which, in the treating physician's or 
134.36  physicians' reasonable medical judgment, will be most likely to 
135.1   be effective in ameliorating or correcting all conditions, 
135.2   except that the term does not include the failure to provide 
135.3   treatment other than appropriate nutrition, hydration, or 
135.4   medication to an infant when, in the treating physician's or 
135.5   physicians' reasonable medical judgment: 
135.6      (i) the infant is chronically and irreversibly comatose; 
135.7      (ii) the provision of the treatment would merely prolong 
135.8   dying, not be effective in ameliorating or correcting all of the 
135.9   infant's life-threatening conditions, or otherwise be futile in 
135.10  terms of the survival of the infant; or 
135.11     (iii) the provision of the treatment would be virtually 
135.12  futile in terms of the survival of the infant and the treatment 
135.13  itself under the circumstances would be inhumane; 
135.14     (6) is one whose parent, guardian, or other custodian for 
135.15  good cause desires to be relieved of the child's care and 
135.16  custody; 
135.17     (7) has been placed for adoption or care in violation of 
135.18  law;

135.28  offense before becoming ten years old;

135.32  found not guilty by reason of mental illness or mental 
135.33  deficiency in connection with a delinquency proceeding, a 
135.34  certification under section 260.125, an extended jurisdiction 
135.35  juvenile prosecution, or a proceeding involving a juvenile petty 
135.36  offense;

136.22     (b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c), 
136.23  "juvenile petty offense" also includes an offense that would be

137.3   the petition as a juvenile petty offender notwithstanding this 
137.4   prior record.  As used in this clause, "misdemeanor-level 
137.5   juvenile petty offense" includes a misdemeanor-level offense 
137.6   that would have been a juvenile petty offense if it had been 
137.7   committed on or after July 1, 1995.  
137.8      (d) A child who commits a juvenile petty offense is a 
137.9   "juvenile petty offender."

137.15  shall determine whether concurrent jurisdiction is necessary to 
137.16  provide appropriate intervention and, if so, proceed to file a 
137.17  petition alleging the child to be both delinquent and in need of 
137.18  protection or services. 
137.19     Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.155, 
137.20  subdivision 1, is amended to read:

137.23  without a jury and may be conducted in an informal manner, 
137.24  except that a child who is prosecuted as an extended 
137.25  jurisdiction juvenile has the right to a jury trial on the issue 
137.26  of guilt.  The rules of evidence promulgated pursuant to section 
137.27  480.0591 and the law of evidence shall apply in adjudicatory 
137.28  proceedings involving a child alleged to be delinquent, an 
137.29  extended jurisdiction juvenile, or a juvenile petty offender, 
137.30  and hearings conducted pursuant to section 260.125 except to the 
137.31  extent that the rules themselves provide that they do not 
137.32  apply.  In all adjudicatory proceedings involving a child 
137.33  alleged to be in need of protection or services, the court shall 
137.34  admit only evidence that would be admissible in a civil trial.  
137.35  To be proved at trial, allegations of a petition alleging a 
137.36  child to be in need of protection or services must be proved by 
138.1   clear and convincing evidence. 
138.2      (b) Except for proceedings involving a child alleged to be 
138.3   in need of protection or services and petitions for the 
138.4   termination of parental rights, hearings may be continued or 
138.5   adjourned from time to time.  In proceedings involving a child 
138.6   alleged to be in need of protection or services and petitions 
138.7   for the termination of parental rights, hearings may not be 
138.8   continued or adjourned for more than one week unless the court 
138.9   makes specific findings that the continuance or adjournment is 
138.10  in the best interests of the child.  If a hearing is held on a 
138.11  petition involving physical or sexual abuse of a child who is 
138.12  alleged to be in need of protection or services or neglected and 
138.13  in foster care, the court shall file the decision with the court 
138.14  administrator as soon as possible but no later than 15 days 
138.15  after the matter is submitted to the court.  When a continuance 
138.16  or adjournment is ordered in any proceeding, the court may make 
138.17  any interim orders as it deems in the best interests of the 
138.18  minor in accordance with the provisions of sections 260.011 to 
138.19  260.301. 
138.20     (c) Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the 
138.21  court shall exclude the general public from hearings under this 
138.22  chapter and shall admit only those persons who, in the 
138.23  discretion of the court, have a direct interest in the case or 
138.24  in the work of the court.  The court shall permit the victim of 
138.25  a child's delinquent act to attend any delinquency proceeding 
138.26  the victim chooses, except that the court may exclude the victim:

140.36  that a child has violated a state or local law, ordinance, or 
141.1   regulation pertaining to the operation of a motor vehicle on

141.22  which endanger the child's health or welfare or which such peace 
141.23  officer reasonably believes will endanger the child's health or 
141.24  welfare.  If an Indian child is a resident of a reservation or 
141.25  is domiciled on a reservation but temporarily located off the 
141.26  reservation, the taking of the child into custody under this 
141.27  clause shall be consistent with the Indian Child Welfare Act of

141.35  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
141.36     Subd. 2a.  [PROTECTIVE PAT-DOWN SEARCH OF CHILD 
142.1   AUTHORIZED.] (a) A peace officer who takes a child of any age or 
142.2   gender into custody under the provisions of this section is 
142.3   authorized to perform a protective pat-down search of the child 
142.4   in order to protect the officer's safety.  
142.5      (b) A peace officer also may perform a protective pat-down 
142.6   search of a child in order to protect the officer's safety in 
142.7   circumstances where the officer does not intend to take the 
142.8   child into custody, if this section authorizes the officer to 
142.9   take the child into custody.  
142.10     (c) Evidence discovered in the course of a lawful search 
142.11  under this section is admissible. 
142.12     Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.255, is 
142.13  amended to read: 
142.14     260.255 [CIVIL JURISDICTION OVER PERSONS CONTRIBUTING TO 
142.15  DELINQUENCY, STATUS AS A JUVENILE PETTY OFFENDER, OR NEED FOR 
142.16  PROTECTION OR SERVICES; COURT ORDERS.] 
142.17     Subdivision 1.  [JURISDICTION.] The juvenile court has 
142.18  civil jurisdiction over persons contributing to the delinquency, 
142.19  status as a juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or 
142.20  services of a child under the provisions of subdivision 2 or 3 
142.21  this section.  
142.22     Subd. 1a.  [PETITION; ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE.] A request for 
142.23  jurisdiction over a person described in subdivision 1 shall be 
142.24  initiated by the filing of a verified complaint by the county 
142.25  attorney having jurisdiction over the place where the child is 
142.26  found, resides, or where the alleged act of contributing 
142.27  occurred.  The petition shall allege the factual basis for the 
142.28  claim that the person is contributing to the child's 
142.29  delinquency, status as a juvenile petty offender, or need for 
142.30  protection or services.  If the court determines, upon review of 
142.31  the verified petition, that probable cause exists to believe 
142.32  that the person has contributed to the child's delinquency, 
142.33  status as a juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or 
142.34  services, the court shall issue an order to show cause why the 
142.35  person should not be subject to the jurisdiction of the court.  
142.36  The order to show cause and a copy of the verified petition 
143.1   shall be served personally upon the person and shall set forth 
143.2   the time and place of the hearing to be conducted under 
143.3   subdivision 2.  
143.4      Subd. 2.  [HEARING.] If in (a) The court shall conduct a 
143.5   hearing on the petition in accordance with the procedures 
143.6   contained in paragraph (b).

143.8   The rules of evidence promulgated pursuant to section 480.0591 
143.9   and the provisions under section 260.156 shall apply.  In all 
143.10  proceedings under this section, the court shall admit only 
143.11  evidence that would be admissible in a civil trial.  When the 
143.12  respondent is an adult, hearings under this subdivision shall be 
143.13  open to the public.  Hearings shall be conducted within five 
143.14  days of personal service of the order to show cause and may be 
143.15  continued for a reasonable period of time if a continuance is in 
143.16  the best interest of the child or in the interests of justice. 
143.17     (c) At the conclusion of the hearing of a case of a child 
143.18  alleged to be delinquent or in need of protection or services it 
143.19  appears, if the court finds by a fair preponderance of the 
143.20  evidence that any person has violated the provisions of the 
143.21  person has contributed to the child's delinquency, status as a 
143.22  juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or services, as 
143.23  defined in section 260.315, the court may make any of the 
143.24  following orders:

143.28  communicating in any manner with the child; or 
143.29     (c) Provide for the maintenance or care of the child, if 
143.30  the person is responsible for such, and direct when, how, and 
143.31  where money for such maintenance or care shall be paid.  
143.32     (3) require the person to participate in evaluation or 
143.33  services determined necessary by the court to correct the 
143.34  conditions that contributed to the child's delinquency, status 
143.35  as a juvenile petty offender, or need for protection or 
143.36  services; 
144.1      (4) require the person to provide supervision, treatment, 
144.2   or other necessary care; 
144.3      (5) require the person to pay restitution to a victim for 
144.4   pecuniary damages arising from an act of the child relating to 
144.5   the child's delinquency, status as a juvenile petty offender, or 
144.6   need for protection or services; 
144.7      (6) require the person to pay the cost of services provided 
144.8   to the child or for the child's protection; or 
144.9      (7) require the person to provide for the child's 
144.10  maintenance or care if the person is responsible for the 
144.11  maintenance or care, and direct when, how, and where money for 
144.12  the maintenance or care shall be paid.  If the person is 
144.13  receiving public assistance for the child's maintenance or care, 
144.14  the court shall authorize the public agency responsible for 
144.15  administering the public assistance funds to make payments 
144.16  directly to vendors for the cost of food, shelter, medical care, 
144.17  utilities, and other necessary expenses.  
144.18     Subd. 3.  [CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS.] Before making any order 
144.19  under subdivision 2 the court shall issue an order to show 
144.20  cause, either upon its own motion or upon a verified petition, 
144.21  specifying the charges made against the person and fixing the 
144.22  time and place of the hearing.  The order to show cause shall be 
144.23  served personally and shall be heard in the same manner as 
144.24  provided in other cases in the juvenile court.  The county 
144.25  attorney may bring both a criminal proceeding under section 
144.26  260.315 and a civil action under this section. 
144.27     Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 260.315, is 
144.28  amended to read: 
144.29     260.315 [CRIMINAL JURISDICTION FOR CONTRIBUTING TO NEED FOR 
144.30  PROTECTION OR SERVICES, STATUS AS A JUVENILE PETTY OFFENDER, OR 
144.31  DELINQUENCY.] 
144.32     Subdivision 1.  [CRIMES.] (a) Any person who by act, word, 
144.33  or omission encourages, causes, or contributes to the need for 
144.34  protection or services or delinquency of a child, or to a 
144.35  child's status as a juvenile petty offender, is guilty of 
144.36  a gross misdemeanor.  
145.1      (b) This section does not apply to licensed social service 
145.2   agencies and outreach workers who, while acting within the scope 
145.3   of their professional duties, provide services to runaway 
145.4   children. 
145.5      Subd. 2.  [COMPLAINT; VENUE.] A complaint under this 
145.6   section may be filed by the county attorney having jurisdiction 
145.7   where the child is found or where a juvenile delinquency, child 
145.8   protection, or juvenile petty offender matter concerning the 
145.9   child is filed.  The complaint shall be filed in the juvenile 
145.10  court.  A prior or pending petition alleging that the child is 
145.11  delinquent, a juvenile petty offender, or in need of protection 
145.12  or services is not a prerequisite to a complaint or a conviction 
145.13  under this section.  
145.14     Subd. 3.  [AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE.] If the child is alleged to 
145.15  be delinquent or a juvenile petty offender, or if the child's 
145.16  conduct is the basis for the child's need for protection or 
145.17  services, it is an affirmative defense to a prosecution under 
145.18  subdivision 1 if the defendant proves, by a preponderance of the 
145.19  evidence, that the defendant took reasonable steps to control 
145.20  the child's conduct.  
145.21     Sec. 11.  Minnesota Statutes 1997 Supplement, section

145.32  access to the juvenile court records as provided in section 
145.33  260.161 or under court rule and to criminal justice agencies in

145.35     (b) Except for access authorized under paragraph (a), the 
145.36  bureau shall only disseminate a juvenile adjudication history 
146.1   record in connection with a background check required by statute 
146.2   or rule and performed on a licensee, license applicant, or

146.4   consent for release of information from an individual who is the 
146.5   subject of a juvenile adjudication history is not effective and 
146.6   the bureau shall not release a juvenile adjudication history 
146.7   record and shall not release information in a manner that 
146.8   reveals the existence of the record.

156.22  separate from the reporting system maintained by the department 
156.23  of public safety under section 299F.05, subdivision 2.  The 
156.24  system consists of data on individuals who are 14 years old or 
156.25  older who law enforcement agencies determine are or may be 
156.26  engaged in arson activity.  Notwithstanding section 260.161, 
156.27  subdivision 3, data in the system on adults and juveniles may be 
156.28  maintained together.  Data in the system must be submitted and 
156.29  maintained as provided in this subdivision. 
156.30     (c) Subject to the provisions of paragraph (d), a criminal 
156.31  justice agency may submit the following data on suspected arson 
156.32  violations to the arson investigative data system:

157.3   behavioral incident; 
157.4      (5) the address of the building, the building owner's 
157.5   identity, and the building occupant's identity; and 
157.6      (6) the name of the reporting agency and a contact person. 
157.7   A criminal justice agency that reports data to the arson 
157.8   investigative data system shall maintain records documenting the 
157.9   data in its own records system for at least the time period 
157.10  specified in paragraph (e). 
157.11     (d) The state fire marshal shall maintain in the arson 
157.12  investigative data system any of the data reported under 
157.13  paragraph (c) that the fire marshal believes will assist in the 
157.14  investigation and prosecution of arson cases.  In lieu of or in 
157.15  connection with any of these data, the state fire marshal may 
157.16  include in the data system a reference to the criminal justice 
157.17  agency that originally reported the data, with a notation to
