169A.47 NOTICE OF ENHANCED PENALTY.
When a court sentences a person for a violation of sections
driving offenses), it shall inform the defendant of the statutory provisions that provide for
enhancement of criminal penalties for repeat violators, and the provisions that provide for
administrative plate impoundment and forfeiture of motor vehicles used to commit an impaired
driving offense. The notice must describe the conduct and the time periods within which the
conduct must occur in order to result in increased penalties, plate impoundment, or forfeiture. The
failure of a court to provide this information to a defendant does not affect the future applicability
of these enhanced penalties to that defendant.
