|THE SAINT PAUL PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY|
UNPUBLISHED CIVIL OPINIONS FROM THE MINNESOTA COURT OF APPEALSIn the Matter of the Civil Commitment of:
Jon Ernest Hopson
Appellant Jon Ernest Hopson challenges his indeterminate
commitment as a sexually dangerous person, arguing that the district
court erred by denying his motion to withdraw his stipulation for
initial commitment, failing to credit his alleged changed condition from
the time of the initial commitment, and finding that no less-restrictive
alternative to indeterminate commitment existed. Because the record
supports the finding that Hopson knowingly and voluntarily executed the
challenged stipulation, because clear and convincing evidence supports
the district court's finding that Hopson is a sexually dangerous person,
and because Hopson failed to show that a less-restrictive treatment
program is available to meet his treatment needs and satisfy public
safety, we affirm.
