Abstract

Describes criminal case processing in the federal justice system including arrest and booking through sentencing and corrections. These electronic tables present the number of suspects arrested and booked by the U.S. Marshals Service, suspects in matters investigated and prosecuted by U.S. attorneys, defendants adjudicated and sentenced in U.S. district court, and characteristics of offenders incarcerated in federal prison. The data are from the BJS-sponsored Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) which manages data received by these federal justice agencies: U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AOUSC), U.S. Sentencing Commission (USSC), and the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). The BJS report, Federal Justice Statistics, 2005 (NCJ 220383) replaces the Compendium of Federal Justice Statistics publication. These statistical tables were prepared by the Urban Institute under BJS grant number 2005-BJ-CX-K004 under the supervision of Mark Motivans, Ph.D., BJS Statistician.
