Based on examples below of those charged with 1st degree child rape they serve the same weak sentence of about three years in Jail. That's only if the County Prosecutors don't give the defendant a plea deal to lesser charges which is often the case to prevent the victim from having to take the stand. In the end, it's not the judges fault for the weak sentences. It's all on the ridiculously weak MN law and the weak sentencing guidelines.
In Minnesota, law makers and prosecutors believe child rapists can be "rehabilitated," do not need to be monitored, and can become good members of society. The evidence is the fact no bill has passed to make sex offender law more tough in the last two years. Also, Only several hundred of the over 20,000 convicted rapists in Minnesota are confined in prison. Most only do a couple years and then are released. More information here:
