PER CURIAM

Remanded for resentencing; otherwise affirmed.

PER CURIAM

Defendant was convicted of burglary and other offenses.  On the burglary conviction, the trial court imposed the maximum sentence allowed under gridblock 7-A of the sentencing guidelines.  On appeal, defendant contends that he instead should have been sentenced under gridblock 7-B, which has a shorter maximum allowable sentence, because the state failed to prove that a prior out-of-state conviction constituted a "person" felony for purposes of the guidelines.  The state concedes that the trial court erred in that regard.  We agree and accept the state's concession.

Defendant also raises a number of other challenges to his convictions and sentences, each of which is unpreserved and/or lacks merit.  We reject those challenges without discussion.

Remanded for resentencing; otherwise affirmed.
