Blended Sentencing in Minnesota: On Target for Justice and Public Safety?

Group: Minnesota Judicial Branch

Description

This evaluation is designed primarily to benefit Minnesota policymakers and practitioners interested in an objective analysis of Extended Jurisdiction Juvenile (EJJ). However, as more states incorporate blended sentencing into their juvenile sentencing structures, it is likely that there will be considerable national interest in Minnesota’s experience. For example, other states that have already adopted blended sentencing may benefit from the example of our analytic approach to the study of dispositional alternatives and our efforts to explain and clarify the statistical results. In states contemplating adoption of blended sentencing, our results may help them to share Minnesota’s successes and avoid its shortcomings.
