Executive Summary Outcomes

This section provides information on how well offenders completed their supervision/monitoring.

Table 3A: Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • The percent of total revocations for Community Control (32.4%) is nearly three times greater than the percent for Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (12.8%) or Global Positioning Satellite(GPS) monitoring (11.6%).
  • The highest rate of successful completion (27.3%) comes from those placed on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring.
  • Almost all of the revocations for Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring are for technical violations.
  • The percent of offenders absconding within one year of placement was greatest for those on Community Control (6.5%).

Table 3B: Community Control Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • Drug offenders are the most likely to be revoked (37.8%) within the first year of placement on Community Control.
  • Few offenders complete their sentence within a year of placement on Community Control (3.0%).
  • More violent offenders (4.7%) were changed to Radio Frequency (RF) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) than other offense types (2.7%).

Table 3C: Community Control Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year by Type of Offender

  • Sex offenders are less likely to be revoked (21.5%) within one year of placement on Community Control than other offenders (32.9%).
  • Sex offenders are more likely to still be active within one year (33.3%) than other offenders (22.8%).
  • More Sex offenders (11.7%) were changed to Radio Frequency (RF) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) than other offenders (2.8%).

Table 3D: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • The highest completion rates within one year were among offenders in the Drug Offense Group (33.2%), followed by offenders in the Property Offense Group (29.6%).
  • 13.1% of offenders in the Violent Offense Group were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring.

Table 3E: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year by Type of Offender

  • Only 0.5% of sex offenders were revoked for a new felony within one year of placement on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring.
  • 25.8% of sex offenders have been changed from Radio Frequency (RF) to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring, compared to 2.4% of other types of offenders.
  • More sex offenders (50.2%) than other offender types (28.0%) were still active on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring within one year.

Table 3F: Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • The number of offenders that are not in the Violent Offense Group is too small to compare percentages to the Violent Offense Group.
  • The overall revocation rate (11.8%) of offenders on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) is about the same as for violent offenders (11.5%).

Table 3G: Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 1 Year by Type of Offender

  • The most common outcomes for sex offenders are reduced sentence (37.5%) and still active (30.7%).
  • There is a smaller percentage of revocations for sex offenders (9.1%) than for other offenders (17.9%), however, the majority of all revocations (93.3%) are for technical violations.

Table 3H: Placements in FY 1997-98, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • The total revocations percent was much lower for Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (16.5%) than for Community Control (44.3%).
  • There were too few placements (3) before fiscal year 1998-99 to fairly compare Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring.
  • A higher percentage completed Radio Frequency (31.0%) within 2 years of placement than completed Community Control (5.4%).
  • The rate of absconders after 2 years was slightly higher for Radio Frequency (RF) (4.3%) compared to Community Control (3.5%).

Table 3I: Community Control Placements in FY 1997-98, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • Offenders whose primary offense was in the violent offense group had an overall lower revocation rate (35.7%) compared to the total (44.6%).
  • Violent offenders were more likely to be placed on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (5.3%) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (0.3%) than any other offense group.
  • Successful completion rates were about the same for all Offense Groups.

Table 3J: Community Control Placements in FY 1997-98, Outcomes through 2 Years by Type of Offender

  • The most common outcome among sex offenders on Community Control was reduced sentence (42.3%).
  • The most common outcome among other offenders was revocation (45.1%), mostly for technical violations (32.3%).

Table 3K: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1997-98, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • There is not a significant difference among offense groups in number of revocations or successful completions.
  • There is a slightly higher rate of reduced sentences for violent offenders (32.4%) compared to drug offenders (26.5%) who were more likely to complete.
  • 3.4% of violent offenders were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring compared to less than 0.5% of all other offense groups.

Table 3L: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1997-98, Outcomes through 2 Years by Type of Offender

  • Sex offenders had a lower revocation rate (13.5%) than other offenders (16.9%).
  • 9.6% of sex offenders were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring compared to 0.2% of other offenders.
