- 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
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.
Whether the district court’s factual basis was sufficient to support its conclusion that O.H.W. has serious difficulty controlling his behavior.
O.H.W. appeals after the denial of his request for discharge from civil commitment.
O.H.W. has been civilly committed as a sexually dangerous individual since April 2005. In February 2020, he filed an application to request a discharge hearing. After a September 2020 hearing, the district court denied O.H.W.’s request. The court found he was likely to engage in further acts of sexual predatory conduct, and he had serious difficulty controlling his sexual behavior.
On appeal, O.H.W. argues the district court erred in denying his request for discharge from civil commitment.
