Minneapolis Fleeing The Police Lawyers
Fleeing in a motor vehicle is a very serious offense in Minnesota and the legislature has designated severe criminal and civil penalties for those convicted. The offense will always be charged as a Felony and, depending on the violator’s history and whether or not there were injuries or death as a result, the maximum punishment can be as severe as 40 years in prison and an $80,000.00 fine. Civil consequences generally include vehicle forfeiture and a minimum one-year license revocation. Fleeing from a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle (typically on foot) is a Misdemeanor offense and carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000.00 fine. There are generally no civil consequences for this offense.
