A11-1734        State of Minnesota, Respondent, vs. Eugene Lee Rushton, Appellant.

Clay County District Court, Hon. Lisa N. Borgen.

When imposing a life sentence pursuant to Minn. Stat. ยง 609.3455, subd. 4 (2010), a district court departs from the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines when it sets a minimum term of imprisonment that is outside the presumptive sentencing-guidelines range.

Affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded.  Judge Wilhelmina M. Wright.
