CRIMINAL APPEAL : HOMICIDE
Appeal From
Case No. 07-K-00261
Northeast Judicial District, Ramsey County
Donovan John Foughty
2019 ND 66924 N.W.2d 96

Highlight

Issues raised for the first time on appeal will not be considered unless they rise to the level of obvious error.
An unambiguous oral sentencing pronouncement will control over an ambiguous written sentence.
The district court has discretion in sentencing a criminal defendant, and review of a sentence on appeal is limited to determining whether the district court acted within the limits prescribed by statute or substantially relied on an impermissible factor.
