Sexually dangerous individual; proof of likelihood to re-offend

In the Interest of Danny Robert Nelson, 896 N.W.2d 923 (N.D. 2017)

North Dakota Supreme Court orders release of person from commitment as a sexually dangerous individual after finding the evidentiary record fails to show that the person “has a present difficulty of controlling his behavior.” A dissenting opinion argues that the Court goes beyond the requirements of the law and impermissibly substitutes its judgment for that of the district court.
