person charged with a criminal offense that is either Severity Level 7, D7, or lower in the
Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines, including misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor offenses,
who could otherwise be sentenced to county jail or state prison and who alleges that the
offense was committed as a result of sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic
stress disorder, substance abuse, or mental health conditions stemming from service in the
United States military, the court shall, prior to entering a plea of guilty, make a determination
as to whether the defendant was, or currently is, a member of the United States military and
whether the defendant may be suffering from sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury,
post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, or mental health conditions as a result of
that person's service. The court may request, through existing resources, an assessment to
aid in that determination.

access to military service reports and records relating to the alleged conditions stemming
from service in the United States military. The records shall be filed as confidential and
remain sealed, except as provided for in this paragraph. The defendant, through existing
records or licensed professional evaluation, shall establish the diagnosis of the condition
and its connection to military service. The court, on the prosecutor's motion with notice to
defense counsel, may order the defendant to furnish to the court for in camera review or to
the prosecutor copies of all medical and military service reports and records previously or
subsequently made concerning the defendant's condition and its connection to service. Based
on the record, the court shall make findings on whether, by clear and convincing evidence,
the defendant suffers from a diagnosable condition and whether that condition stems from
service in the United States military. Within 15 days of the court's findings, either party

such reasonable conditions as it may require and for a period not to exceed the maximum
sentence provided for the violation unless extended by the court to complete treatment as
per section 609.135, subdivision 2, paragraph (h). If the veteran has previously received a
stay of adjudication for a felony offense under this section, the court may in its discretion
sentence consistent with this section or deny the use of this section on subsequent felony

the defendant would have served in state prison or county jail, provided the court determines

that service, including but not limited to programs operated by the United States Department
of Defense or Veterans Affairs. If an appropriate treatment provider is not available in the

of Veterans Affairs shall coordinate with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs
to locate an appropriate treatment program and sources to fund the cost of the offender's
participation in the program.
