*Judge has discretion in sanction to be applied.
** The Other Components category includes points for victim injury, legal status violations, community sanction violations, firearm and weapons violations, prior capital felony, prior serious felony, and enhancements. These are grouped because these components apply to a relatively small proportion of cases, and the percentage attributable to them overall can be misleading as an indicator of their relative importance in cases where points are assigned.
