Now Available: 2014 Guidelines
The 2014 MN Sentencing Guidelines and Commentary are now available. The 2014 Guidelines are used to determine the presumptive sentence for felony offenses committed on or after August 1, 2014, and will remain in effect until the next annual publication. July 24, 2014, the Commission adopted proposed modifications resulting from new and amended legislation and other policy considerations. The adopted modifications include the reranking of fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct, severity level rankings for violations of the medical cannabis laws, and modifying commentary to clarify the procedures for the use of expunged records for sentencing purposes.
