DECISIONS OF THE COURT OF APPEALS
FILED TUESDAY, MAY 26, 2015

   

A14-1086       State of Minnesota, Respondent, vs. Theodore Pierre Jerry, Appellant.
            
           Hennepin County District Court, Hon. Martha A. Holton Dimick.
           I.  When imposing consecutive sentences, the district court must sentence the offenses in the order in which they occurred.
           II.  Because the offense of burglary is defined in terms of entry and is complete upon entry, it necessarily occurs before a crime committed in the building and, therefore, must be sentenced first in compliance with the sentencing guidelines.
           Reversed and remanded.  Judge Larry B. Stauber, Jr.
           Concurring in part and dissenting in part, Judge Heidi S. Schellhas.


A14-1408
       State of Minnesota, Respondent, vs. Timothy Robert Turner, Appellant.
          
           Isanti County District Court, Hon. James Dehn.
           Minnesota Statutes section 609.765 (2012), which criminalizes defamation, is unconstitutionally overbroad.
           Reversed.  Judge Denise D. Reilly.
