Note: Where the data indicated that a particular additional penalty was imposed, the case was coded accordingly. Where the data did not indicate affirmatively or negatively, the case was treated as not having an additional penalty. These procedures provide a conservative estimate of the prevalence of additional penalties. A felon receiving more than one kind of additional penalty appears under more than one table heading. This table is based on an estimated 1,078,925 cases.
a/Includes any type of counseling, rehabilitation, treatment, or mental hospital confinement.
b/Includes nonnegligent manslaughter.
c/Includes rape.
d/Includes offenses such as negligent manslaughter and kidnapping.
e/Includes motor vehicle theft.
f/Includes forgery and embezzlement.
g/Composed of nonviolent offenses such as receiving stolen property and vandalism.
