Common Statute Table

The Common Statute Table (CST) is a list of offenses from North Dakota Century Code and provides a common charging reference for criminal justice agencies. The CST is updated in July of every odd numbered year to reflect legislative changes. Between legislative sessions, the CST is updated once per month, as needed. When the CST is updated, a current, full version of the CST is published as well as a file outlining just the changes from the last release.

Common Statute Table Instructions

For convenience, we have compiled an instruction guide regarding use of the Common Statute Table.
