The report is based on data collected for the National Judicial Reporting Program, a biennial statistical program that collects information on felons convicted in State courts. The section on felony sentences in State courts describes the number of felony offenders in State courts and the sentences they received. The section that profiles felons convicted in State courts describes the sex, race, age, and other characteristics of convicted felons. The section on felons sentenced to probation in State courts focuses on the most frequent type of sentence, i.e., probation. This section describes the number of felons sentenced to probation in State courts, the type of crime for which felons were sentenced to probation, and the demographic characteristics of probationers. The section on felony case processing in State courts describes the number of felons convicted by trial and by guilty plea in State courts, compares sentences in cases convicted by these various methods, and presents the average time required to process felony cases. 40 tables and 7 figures
