Abstract:

Recent research examining judicial sentencing decisions has shown the need to further define the incarceration decision and expand the definition of judicial options when sentencing felony offenders (Holleran and Spohn, 2004; Harrington and Spohn, 2005). These prior findings suggest that the legal and extra-legal factors judges use to sentence felony offenders differ for the decision to incarcerate in jail versus prison. The present research extends this examination to the factors that influence sentence length with the more detailed definition of sentencing options. Our research examines the sentence length imposed for felony offenders sentenced to jail and prison separately, in a jurisdiction, Midwestern County, with an indeterminate sentencing system.
