LEARFIELD (St. Paul, MN) — The anti-crime package from Minnesota House and Senate Republicans includes increased penalties for carjacking, fleeing police in a motor vehicle, and for possessing or distributing fentanyl. Sentences would also increase for offenders with two or more convictions for violent crimes. GOP Representative Walter Hudson of Albertville said, “the third time you’ve done it, you’ve already been caught twice, you’ve already been through trials twice and you’ve been convicted twice — so you’re clearly not learning your lesson.” Mandatory sentences would be required for dangerous offenders who commit crimes with a firearm. And county attorneys would have to report to the legislature any felony offenses they don’t file charges on.
