Federal Sentencing Statistics

The U.S. Sentencing Commission has issued its 14th Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics.

Data from 81,372 cases from Oct. 1, 2008 through Sept. 30, 2009 were analyzed for this report. Information is presented on numerous factors, including:
  • age
  • citizenship
  • criminal history
  • drug offenses
  • education
  • fines and restitution
  • gender
  • immigration offenses
  • race
  • reasons for departures from the sentencing guidelines
For those with an insatiable appetite for numbers, these tables will be fascinating.
