|Author:||Senator Jane B. Ranum|
|Prepared by:||Chris Turner, Senate Research (651/296-4350)|
|Date:||March 29, 2006|
The bill amends fine dispositions for Hennepin County.
Section 1 amends the current fine disposition structure for Hennepin County. Currently, all fine and penalty revenue is forwarded to the municipality or subdivision of government where the crime was committed, unless the county attorney had charge of the prosecution, in which case all revenue is credited to the general fund. The bill provides that the municipality or subdivision of government receives 80 percent of the fine revenue and 20 percent goes to the state general fund, unless the county attorney had charge of the prosecution, in which case all revenue is credited to the general fund.
Section 2 eliminates the fees charged to the county or to the state or governmental subdivision for a case prosecuted in the district court.
Section 3 repeals Minnesota Statutes, section 488A.03, subdivision 11b, which references the obsolete municipal court system.
