State v. Brook

The Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the district court correcting Defendant's postrelease supervision term after Defendant's probation was revoked and he was ordered to serve his original sentence and the court of appeals' endorsement of that decision, holding that the district court judge did not err in correcting Defendant's postrelease term. Defendant pleaded no contest to sexual exploitation of a child and was sentenced to thirty-six months in prison and two years of postrelease supervision. The district court suspended imposition of the sentence. After Defendant committed another crime, his probation was revoked and his original sentence imposed. Thereafter, the district court ruled that Defendant should have received a lifetime postrelease term because of his plea to a sexually violent crime. The district judge then corrected the two-year postrelease term to lifetime. The court of appeals affirmed. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district judge properly corrected Defendant's two-year postrelease term to lifetime. View "State v. Brook" on Justia Law
