10-20-Life Felons Admitted to Prison

Admissions by Quarter

Analyzing 10-20-Life sentencing using prison admissions each quarter identifies trends in the effect of the legislation.

The admissions trends for the 3-, 10-, and 20-year mandatory sentences remain fairly stable.

The admission trend for the 25-to-Life mandatory sentences appears to have leveled, although recent numbers are much higher compared to the initial quarters.
