I agree with the other answers. There is no death penalty in MN so I'm not sure what the reference to "capitol murder" is for.

Q: Does a Crim/Traf Non-Mand (fishing without a license) stay on your record if paying the fine.

My son received a ticket Crim/Traf Non-Mand (fishing without a license) while in fish house with two other friends. He did not have a pole in his hand but 3 lines were in the water. DNR gave him a ticket for 97C.301.2. The DNR say if he pays the fine it will not be on his record. Is that accurate?

Typically paying a citation will create a record. However, if this is a petty misdemeanor, that is considered non-criminal. If he wants to keep it off of his record, he should consult with an attorney. There are ways to keep these things from becoming a conviction.

Unlikely. Courts are generally extending the 30 day deadline due to covid. A lawyer can give you more assistance as it is clear you are unfamiliar with how this works.
