2021 Sentencing Guidelines and Commentary

The 2021 Sentencing Guidelines are effective September 15, and determine the presumptive sentence for felony offenses committed on or after the effective date. The Guidelines remain in effect until the next publication. Modifications are adopted after public hearing and detail the approved modifications to the Sentencing Guidelines, including rankings for new and amended felony offenses passed by the Legislature and changes to non-legislative policies.  

Previous versions of the MN Sentencing Guidelines and Commentary are available on the archives page.
