Demographics of 10-20-Life Felons

Criminal History
Prior Florida Supervision Terms

Most, but not all prior felonies committed in Florida result in a sentence to supervision or prison with the Florida Department of Corrections.

Therefore, the data for this report only gives a partial indication of the criminal history of felons admitted to the Department.

It does not include prior felonies committed in other states, those resulting in Federal convictions, or Florida felonies that resulted only in local jail terms.
