MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – An Olmsted County man with a criminal history dating back to the early 1980s is having his appeal denied by the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
Bradley Carl Brown has pleaded guilty to one count of simple robbery in 1983, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery in 1984, and was sentenced to life in prison after being charged in federal court with bank robbery in 2000. His life sentence was applied based on having prior felony convictions, and he is arguing the legality of that.
He asked for postconviction relief, but was denied, and appealed that ruling to the Minnesota Court of Appeals. In a ruling published today, the appeals court agreed with the lower court that Brown’s sentence was just.
