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. For information about overall incarceration and departure rates, read the Annual Summary Statistics for Felony Offenders located in Reports. Check back soon for other data reports.
