Training Update - Weighting Prior Drug Offenses
On November 17, 2016, the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission decided that, in calculating a Defendant's criminal history score, prior drug convictions are not to be recalculated using post-August 1, 2016 drug threshold weights. Specifically, the Commission changed Comment 2.B.106. Click here for the complete training update. An update of the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines and Commentary that includes this change to Commentary is available here.
