Note: Data describe defendants whose pretrial services were terminated during
fiscal year 2005 . A defendant with more than one type of violation appears in
more than one column. A defendant with more than one of the same type of
violation appears only once in that column. Therefore, the sum of individual
violations exceeds the total. Not all violations resulted in revocation.
*Includes 45 defendants for whom an offense category could not be determined.
