    Is there supposed to be a link for the following sentence?

    “Her office’s conviction rate of career criminals was more than 95 percent in the last few years of her term, and sentences of those convicted matched or exceeded the guidelines set by the state in 87 percent of cases in 2005, according to a 2006 article in the Star Tribune.”

    It would be useful to be able to read the original article.
