MSGC staff provides educational materials and training opportunities on the Guidelines for criminal justice practitioners. The educational materials are designed to assist with the policies outlined in the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines and Commentary. The materials are not representative of the complete or official Guidelines language and should not be referenced in court communications.
The following training offers new practitioners an introductory overview of the Guidelines in seven modules covering everything from the sentencing Grids to finding the presumptive sentence. Also available are slides and notes for following along with the narration.
