Askin v. StateAnnotate this Case
Appellant pled guilty to escape and received a sentence that was suspended in favor of probation. Appellant’s probation was later revoked and the prison sentence for his escape conviction was re-imposed. Appellant subsequently pled guilty of failing to register and sentenced to a term of confinement. Appellant appealed, arguing that the district court erred by failing to consider his request for credit for time spent in presentence confinement. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court erred in concluding that it lacked the requisite authority to award credit for time served in presentence confinement. Remanded.
