In the Interest of David Leroy Thorson. Brian Grosinger, Morton County Assistant State's Attorney, Petitioner and Appellee
David Leroy Thorson, Respondent and Appellant
The opinion cannot be considered final until disposition of such petition for rehearing by the court or expiration of 14 days from filing date.
Appeal from the District Court of Morton County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Bruce B. Haskell, Judge.
Brian David Grosinger, Mandan, N.D., for petitioner and appellee.
Matthew John Arthurs, Bismarck, N.D., for respondent and appellant.
[¶1] David Leroy Thorson appealed from an order civilly committing him as a sexually dangerous individual. Thorson argues clear and convincing evidence does not support the district court's finding that he has a congenital or acquired condition that is manifested by a sexual disorder, a personality disorder, or other mental disorder or dysfunction that makes him likely to engage in further acts of sexually predatory conduct which constitute a danger to the physical or mental health or safety of others. The district court's findings are supported by clear and convincing evidence, and the findings are not induced by an erroneous view of the law.
[¶2] We summarily affirm the order under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
[¶3] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Lisa Fair McEvers, Daniel J. Crothers, Dale V. Sandstrom, Carol Ronning Kapsner.
