State v. Legg, 2016 UT App 168 (Aug. 4, 2016)

Aug 4, 2016

Defendant appealed the district court’s decision to revoke his probation. At issue was whether the appeal was moot, as defendant had already served his sentence. The Court of Appeals held that the presumption in criminal convictions of collateral legal consequences, which allows an otherwise moot case to be appealed, does not apply to the revocation of probation. Defendant must demonstrate actual and adverse collateral legal consequences to survive mootness.
