Executive Summary

Outcomes

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

Table 3A: Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • The percent of total revocations for Community Control (31.6%) is substantially higher than the percent for Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (12.1%) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (20.8%).
  • The highest rate of successful completion (22.6%) 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 (5.6%).
  • Overall, nearly one-quarter (24.6%) of offenders were still active after one year with Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring having the highest percent (27.3%).

Table 3B: Community Control Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • Drug offenders are the most likely to be revoked (36.5%) within the first year of placement on Community Control.
  • Few offenders successfully complete their sentence within a year of placement on Community Control (3.1%).
  • More violent offenders (4.8%) were changed to Radio Frequency (RF) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) than other offense types (3.8%).

Table 3C: Community Control Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year by Type of Offender

  • Sex offenders are less than half as likely to be revoked (15.9%) within one year of placement on Community Control than other offenders (32.4%).
  • Sex offenders are more likely to still be active within one year (35.0%) than other offenders (24.1%).
  • More Sex offenders (14.3%) were changed to Radio Frequency (RF) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (2.6%, 11.7%) than other offenders (0.7%, 0.9%).

Table 3D: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • The lowest successful completion rates within one year were among offenders in the Drug Offense Group (17.8%).
  • 18.5% of offenders in the Violent Offense Group were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring.
  • Nearly one-third (30.0%) of offenders on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring received a reduced sentence within one year of placement.

Table 3E: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year by Type of Offender

  • No sex offenders absconded within one year of placement on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring compared to 2.3% of other offenders.
  • 32.6% of sex offenders have been changed from Radio Frequency (RF) to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring, compared to 5.3% of other types of offenders.
  • More sex offenders (19.5%) than other offender types (13.1%) were still active on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring within one year.

Table 3F: Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year

  • Drug offenders were more likely to be revoked (32.8%) than violent offenders (17.2%) within one year of placement on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring.
  • Violent offenders had a higher successful completion rate (16.2%) within one year of placement on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring than other types of offenders.

Table 3G: Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Placements in FY 1999-00, Outcomes through 1 Year by Type of Offender

  • The most common outcome for sex offenders after one year is still active (34.5%).
  • There is a smaller percentage of revocations for sex offenders (14.0%) than for other offenders (26.8%), however, the majority of all revocations are for technical violations.

Table 3H: Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • The revocation percent was much lower for Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (13.9%) than for Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (18.6%) or Community Control (43.4%).
  • A higher percentage successfully completed Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (28.9%) within 2 years of placement than completed Community Control (5.2%) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (4.6%).
  • The rate of absconding after 2 years was lowest for Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (1.5%) compared to Community Control (3.5%) and Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (4.6%).

Table 3I: Community Control Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • Offenders whose primary offense was in the violent offense group had an overall lower revocation rate (35.1%) compared to the total (43.6%).
  • Violent offenders were more likely to be placed on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (3.5%) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (2.0%) than any other offense group.

Table 3J: Community Control Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years by Type of Offender

  • The most common outcome among sex offenders on Community Control was reduced sentence (39.3%).
  • The most common outcome among other offenders was revocation (44.0%), mostly for technical violations (31.5%).
  • Sex offenders on Community Control were revoked less than half as many times as other offenders for new felonies or misdemeanors.

Table 3K: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • 13.4% of violent offenders were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring compared to less than 2.0% of all other offense groups.
  • Drug offenders were more likely to abscond than other types of offenders.

Table 3L: Radio Frequency (RF) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years by Type of Offender

  • Sex offenders had a lower revocation rate (8.9%) than other offenders (14.8%).

  • 26.7% of sex offenders were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring compared to 2.3% of other offenders.

Table M: Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years

  • The numbers are not evenly distributed enough across the offense-type categories to make accurate comparisons.

Table 3N: Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Placements in FY 1998-99, Outcomes through 2 Years by Type of Offender

  • No sex offenders absconded within two years of placement.

  • Over two-thirds of sex offenders (68.1%) received reduced sentences compared to 41.0% of other offenders.

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

  • The revocation percent was lower for Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (16.5%) than for Community Control (46.6%). There are too few Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) cases to be able to compare.
  • A higher percentage successfully completed Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (30.9%) within 3 years of placement than completed Community Control (5.6%).

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

  • Offenders whose primary offense was in the violent offense group had an overall lower revocation rate (38.1%) compared to the total (46.9%).
  • 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.

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

  • 3.4% of violent offenders were changed to Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring compared to less than 1.0% of all other offense groups.
