State of North Dakota, Petitioner and Appellee
v.
O.H.W., Respondent and Appellant
Case Type
CIVIL APPEAL : CIVIL COMMIT OF SEXUAL PREDATOR
Appeal From
Case No. 04-R-00904
East Central Judicial District, Cass County
Stephannie Nicole Stiel

Parties' Statement of Issues

  • Appellant

    Whether the District Court’s Order’s factual basis regarding O.H.W.’s behavior is sufficient to legally conclude O.H.W. has serious difficulty controlling his behavior.

  • Appellee 1

    Whether the District Court properly determined that O.H.W. remains a sexually dangerous individual.


Summary

O.H.W. appeals from a district court order denying his application for discharge.

A district court hearing was held on O.H.W.’s application for discharge in March 2019. In April 2019 the court entered an order, concluding the statutory criteria and substantive due process requirements were satisfied for continued commitment and denying O.H.W’s application for discharge.

On appeal, O.H.W. argues the district court’s factual basis regarding his behavior is legally insufficient to conclude he had the inability to control his behavior.
