Order Deferring Imposition of Sentence In North Dakota
An order deferring imposition of sentence is not an appealable order under N.D.C.C. 29-28-06. State v. Nelson, 2005 ND 11, P 5, 691 N.W.2d 218.
However, when the order deferring imposition of sentence meets the requirements of N.D.R.Crim.P. 32(b) for criminal judgments and no separate judgment of conviction has been entered, the order serves as the judgment of conviction and is appealable. State v. Nelson, 2005 ND 11, P 5, 691 N.W.2d 218; State v. Berger, 2004 ND 151, P 8, 683 N.W.2d 897.
The order in this case includes the plea, the verdict, and the sentence imposed, and therefore satisfies the requirements of N.D.R.Crim.P. 32(b).
