MSGC Recap Reports take the same great information found in our full length reports, and condenses it into an easy-to-read two page hand out. This year, our Recap Reports address felony-level DWI, CVH, and CVI offenses. In 2012, 631 offenders were sentenced for felony DWI. Since 2008, there has been a steady decrease of the number of felony DWI offenders sentenced. However, when the number of DWI offenders sentenced is broken down by first or subsequent DWI, the number of subsequent DWI offenders has consistently increased over time. Also, subsequent DWI offenders are far more likely to receive prison. The combination of these two factors accounts for the increase in the prison rate for felony DWI offenses. For more information regarding DWI, CVH, and CVI offenses, read the MSGC Recap Reports located in reports.
2012 Summary of Sentencing Statistics Now Online
The 2012 data set was recently finalized and several reports are now available online. In 2012, there were 15,207 felony offenders sentenced, which was an overall increase of 4% over the number sentenced in 2011. Property offenses grew the most at nearly 9%, person offenses were up almost 4%, and drug offenses rose a little over 4%. While the overall number of offenders sentenced in the "Other" category did not fluctuate, within the category, felony DWI offenses decreased by 4% while non-person sex offenses (e.g., failure to register, and pornography offenses) increased by 4%. Minnesota's rise in felony sentences is consistent with national trends.
