Defendant appealed from his convictions and consecutive sentences for criminal sexual conduct and two counts of domestic assault. Defendant argued, inter alia, that the trial court erred when it sentenced him for two domestic assault convictions arising from the course of conduct that included criminal sexual conduct with force or violence. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that, when, in the course of committing a criminal sexual assault offense with force or violence, a specific instance of the defendant's conduct constitutes more than one additional criminal offense, such as when a single incident of domestic assault constitutes both assault fear and assault harm, the defendant may be sentenced for only one of those offenses in additional to the criminal sexual conduct sentence. Affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded.
