In November of 2016, the Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice (“Robina”) commenced a project, with the assistance of the (MSGC) to analyze the relationship between the criminal history score in the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines and offender recidivism. The goals of the project are to examine how well Minnesota’s guidelines (CHS) predicts re-offending, to identify components of the score that do not add to its predictive validity, and to examine the relationship between the criminal history score and recidivism type.
