Description

This study provides a pre and post analysis of the sentencing patterns and DOC bed needs associated with most of the House Bill 210 offenses. Superior Court case filings and sentencing orders for calendar year 2002 are used as the baseline period to study the sentencing patterns and resulting DOC Level V beds because it was the last full year prior to the HB 210’s effective date in mid-2003. Calendar year 2004 is used as the “post” HB 210 period to assess the changes in sentencing practices and DOC bed impacts.
