State of Minnesota v. Ray E. Ulrich

April 8, 2013

STATE OF MINNESOTA, RESPONDENT,
v.
RAY E. ULRICH, APPELLANT.



Meeker County District Court File No. 47-CR-11-1134

SYLLABUS BY THE COURT

SYLLABUS Minn. Stat. § 243.166, subd. 1b(a)(2) (2010), does not require predatory-offender registration for violations of Minn. Stat. § 609.352, subd. 2a(2)-(3) (2010).

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Smith, Judge

Reversed

Considered and decided by Cleary, Presiding Judge; Hooten, Judge; and Smith, Judge.

OPINION

SMITH, Judge

Appellant challenges the district court's order that he register as a predatory offender pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 243.166, subd. 1b(a)(2). Because application of Minn.

Stat. § 243.166, subd. 1b(a)(2), to Minn. Stat. § 609.352 (2010) is limited to offenses involving "soliciting a minor to engage in sexual conduct," predatory-offender registration is not required for violations of Minn. Stat. § 609.352, subd. 2a(2)-(3). We reverse.

FACTS

Appellant Ray Ulrich was charged with violating Minnesota Statute section 609.352, subdivision 2a(2) (use of electronics to engage "in communication with a child . . . describing sexual conduct"), and section 609.352, subdivision 2a(3) (use of electronics to distribute "any material, language, or communication, including a photographic or video image, that relates to or describes sexual conduct to a child"). Ulrich pleaded guilty to violating section 609.352, subdivision 2a(2), and the district court dismissed the charge regarding section 609.352, subdivision 2a(3).

At the sentencing hearing, Ulrich argued that section 243.166, subdivision 1b(a)(2), requiring predatory-offender registration, did not apply to his charges or conviction. The district court disagreed and placed Ulrich on probation subject to conditions, including that Ulrich register as a predatory offender. This appeal followed.
