State v. YoungAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court vacated the decision of the intermediate court of appeals (ICA) affirming the circuit court's judgment of conviction and probation sentence in favor of the State and vacated the circuit court's judgment of conviction and probation sentence, holding that the ICA erred.
In 2000, Defendant was convicted and sentenced for charges of sex assault in the second and third degree. Defendant was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered both to complete sex offender treatment and to register as a sex offender. In 2011, Defendant's probation was revoked, and he was resentenced to ten years' confinement. Defendant's sentence for the sex assault convictions expired in 2010. In 2016, Defendant was adjudicated guilty of two counts of failure to comply with covered offender registration requirements. The circuit court sentenced Defendant to a four-year term of probation and ordered, as a special condition of probation, that Defendant participate in a sex offender treatment program. The Supreme Court remanded the matter to the circuit court for resentencing, holding that the ICA erred in affirming based, in part, on its unsubstantiated understanding that Defendant did not previously complete the sex offender treatment program, as ordered.
