Community Supervision Population

Felony class for the primary offense is the same even when offenders were convicted of attempts, which explains why some capital and life felony cases are on supervision rather than in prison. Others are offenders who served prison sentences followed by a period of supervision such as parole or conditional release.

The primary offense is the most serious crime for which the offender was admitted to supervision, based on the statutory degree of the crime. Offenders may also be serving sentences concurrently (at the same time) for other offenses. The offender may have been convicted as an accessory, or for conspiracy or an attempt, rather than as a principal for this offense.
