Time Served in South Dakota

 

State Fact Sheet: Time Served in South Dakota

* NOTES: Offenders not fitting into the violent, property, or drug categories (such as offenders convicted of quality of life and weapons offenses) were included in the total calculations but are not presented as a separate category. In South Dakota, these non-categorized offenders made up 35 percent of the 2009 release cohort (versus only 16 percent nationally). These offenders served the shortest average LOS in 2009, and made up a much larger percentage of the release cohort in 2009 than in 1990, accounting for the steeper decline in overall time served than in time served for violent, property, or drug offenders.
