Sentencing Scoresheet Compliance Report

September 2013

Report Logo - Sentencing Scoresheet


Executive Summary

This report is in fulfillment of 921.002(4)(c) Florida Statutes, which mandates that the Florida Department of Corrections shall, no later than October 1 of each year, provide the Legislature with a sentencing scoresheet compliance report. This report details the compliance of each judicial circuit in submitting to the Department sentencing scoresheets for offenders convicted of felonies between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.

NOTE: Due to erroneous duplication of scoresheets in some circuits in the past, and a decrease in community supervision admissions in general in FY 2012-13, the number of scoresheets listed in this report is lower than in previous reports. For questions regarding this sentencing guideline scoresheet report, contact Research and Data Analysis Manager Neal Fitch at (850) 717-3654; for questions regarding the scoresheet entry process, please call Correctional Services Consultant Emily Radd at (850) 717-3128.

Included in this report is the following information:

  1. Using FY 2012-13 commitments to the Department of Corrections as a baseline for comparing scoresheet submissions, a compliance rate is provided for each judicial circuit and county. Commitments include all felons convicted and sentenced to state prison, probation or community control as well as modifications to and revocations of supervision. Scoresheets reported are those received through September 1, 2013. The statewide rate of compliance for this time period is 72.4%.

  2. For scoresheets received with sentence dates during FY 2012-13 (including those with non-department sanctions), county, circuit and region totals are provided.

  3. Circuit and county totals for scoresheets with FY 2012-13 sentence dates are listed according to most severe type of sanction. Of the 105,475 scoresheets received, 28,547 (27.1%) had a state prison sanction, 44,761 (42.4%) received a probation sanction, 6,662 (6.3%) received a community control sanction, 24,361 (23.1%) received a county jail sanction, 1,144 (1.1%) were classified as “other distributions” such as probation termination, etc.
