    609.583 [SENTENCING; FIRST BURGLARY OF A DWELLING.] 
    In determining an appropriate sentence disposition for a 
first offense of burglary of a dwelling, the court shall presume 
that a stay of execution with a 120 90-day period of 
incarceration as a condition of probation shall be imposed 
unless the defendant's criminal history score determined

sentencing guidelines pursuant to section 244.10.  A stay of 
imposition of sentence may be granted only if accompanied by a 
statement on the record of the reasons for it.  The presumptive 
period of incarceration may be waived in whole or in part by the 
court if the defendant provides restitution or performs 
community work service.

     Section 1 is effective August 1, 1984 and applies to crimes 
committed on or after that date.
