Minnnesota Juvenile Felony Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges

Sadly, many do not understand that a juvenile who engages in felony criminal sexual conduct and is convicted of it will face long-term consequences. Most believe - because the accused is a juvenile that - it will just disappear when the child turns 18.  That is not the case.  

What You Should Know

Juvenile sex crimes can result in the minor being charged as an adult and this means serving an adult prison sentence. If your child has been charged with felony criminal sexual conduct in the State of Minnesota, it is imperative to secure the services of an experienced Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorney who knows how to fix such matters. An attorney protects the rights of your child and works hard to avoid the potential consequences of the charge. 

There is no guarantee that your child’s case will be handled in juvenile court.when criminal charges are brought.  Therefore, it is important that the child is defended. The reason is because not all children who offend become adult offenders, so their future depends on whether or not they are tried as a child and determining if the charge does have merit. False accusations do happen among the juvenile population as well. There is also the fact that young children abusing other children may be an indication that the child offender is being abused by someone older than them or they had been abused in the past. That is not always the case, but this does seem to be a common theme.

If you or someone you love needs help with a juvenile case, please feel free to contact The Rolloff Law Office at (612) 234-1165 - to set up a free consultation.

Commercial Driver's License (CDL) and a Minnesota DWI

The State of Minnesota takes Drunk Driving very seriously --- and if you have a commercial driver's license (ie., a CDL) the consequences can be devastating.  This is why it is important to get answers from a Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney.

What Will Happen

Commercial drivers face strict DWI penalties that can impact their ability to work and earn a living. 

In the State of Minnesota, for a first offense, a commercial driver transporting non-hazardous material can lose his CDL for one year; a driver of hazardous materials can have his license disqualified for three years. 

If convicted of a second violation, the driver will lose his CDL permanently, but the driver can attempt to have his license reinstated after ten years.It’s considered a major offense for a commercial driver to operate a commercial vehicle with a suspended, revoked or disqualified CDL – this would result in the possibility of fines up to $5,000 and potential jail time.

Wile the driver will retain his license to operate a noncommercial vehicle unless:the BAC level was 0.08 or higher, the legal limit for a regular motor vehicle DWI. 

If you have a CDI and you are facing a DWI --- know this: this considered a major offense under both state and federal laws Therefore, you should contact The Rolloff Law Office right away. We will work on your behalf to either have the charges against you reduced or possibly have them dismissed. Call today: (612) 234-1165

Minnesota Terroristic Threats (Threats of Violence)

In the State of Minnesota, a Terroristic Threat (ie. Threats of Violence) is classified as a felony offense.  However --- what qualifies as much might be mislabeled.  What that means, to an experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney is that there are circumstances when a  threat --- might find someone charged with a crime. 

Example --- a statement like: statement, “I just want to burn this place down,” (something a family member might use on a bad day) could be mischaracterized as a terroristic threat.

If you have been accused of making a Terroristic Threat, you should not just accept it.  

What Should You Do?

The number one thing to do in a Terroristic Threats case is to dig into what actually happened.  Believe it or not, there are different types of threats, which is why something someone says can be perceived as such. Here are the elements of such threats:An individual must indirectly or directly commit a violent crime with the intention of terrorizing another person

he Consequences

The number one goal of The Rolloff Law Office is to make sure you are not convicted of making threats. When conviction cannot be avoided, then the goal is to have the charges reduced. There are areas of the law that allow for charges to be reduced so a person can put the matter behind them and move on much sooner.If convicted, there are consequences, such as prison and fines. There is also the criminal record that causes problems with finding a place to live or finding a job. The more serious the charge a person is convicted of, the harder the future may be. This is why it is important to have an attorney who will fight for and with you every step of the way. Even a reduction in charges can make moving forward much easier than it would be otherwise.

An innocent statement can misinterpreted as a threat. In fact, even a semi-serious statement could result in a terroristic threat/threats of violence charge. If you or a loved one has been accused of making a threat, you have the right to defend yourself with the help of a skilled defense attorney.
