Abstract: THE DATA PRESENTED INCLUDE BOTH DEFENDANT INDICTMENTS AND DEFENDANT-INDICTMENT CASES THAT WERE DISPOSED OF DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD. BECAUSE CONVICTIONS ARE NOT REPORTED UNTIL TIME OF SENTENCING, THE CATEGORY 'DEFENDANT-INDICTMENTS DISPOSED OF' MAY REFER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES: (1) DEFENDANT-INDICTMENT CONVICTIONS AND SENTENCES DURING THE PERIOD; (2) DEFENDANT-INDICTMENT CONVICTIONS DURING A PREVIOUS PERIOD BUT SENTENCE NOT RENDERED UNTIL JANUARY-DECEMBER 1977; OR (3) DISPOSITIONS OTHER THAN CONVICTIONS DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD. THE EXHIBITS INCLUDED IN THE BODY OF THE REPORT FOCUS ON THREE MAJOR GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS OF THE STATE -- NEW YORK CITY, SUBURBAN NEW YORK CITY, AND UPSTATE NEW YORK. AN INTRODUCTORY SECTION BRIEFLY SUMMARIZES TRENDS IN TYPES AND NUMBERS OF ARRESTS, INDICTMENTS, DISPOSITIONS, AND PROCESSING TIMES NOTED FROM PREVIOUS YEARS. EACH OF THESE FUNCTIONS IS THEN DISCUSSED IN DETAIL, WITH TABULAR AND GRAPHIC DATA ILLUSTRATING THE INFORMATION PRESENTED IN EACH SECTION. APPENDIXES PROVIDE TABLES SUMMARIZING NUMBERS AND DISPOSITIONS OF FELONY INDICTMENTS BY GEOGRAPHIC AREA AND BY QUARTER, DIAGRAMS ILLUSTRATING THE FELONY DEFENDANT AND DRUG DEFENDANT PROCESSING FLOW BY JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT, GRAPHS SHOWING AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES FOR FELONY AND DRUG DEFENDANTS BY JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT, AND A COPY OF THE FORM USED TO COLLECT THE DATA FOR THE REPORT.
