Here's your "Did You Know" for the day.
MN offenders get "points" for convictions. Points are calculated for sentencing. Areas in gray (pic 1) are presumptive stayed sentences. A person could steal up to 10 cars under $5,000 & get 1/2 pt for each before ever going to prison.
Shooting someone often gets charged at 2nd Degree Assault. The sentence for SHOOTING SOMEONE is presumed STAYED if your score is 2 or under.

And SHOOTING SOMEONE is only worth 1 1/2 points.

Burglary convictions are worth 1 point each. Under the grid, you could have two burglary convictions and still not go to prison (and many convictions/sentences are stayed beyond that mark).

FYI, these are simplistic explanations of how the sentencing guidelines and grids work. The actual application of formulas can be very complex and can vary in different counties & are subject to departures. The point is to help you understand that people often don't go to prison.
