6 Receptions – Assessed Security Level DUI ReceptionsAll ReceptionsDUI receptions are more likely to be assessed to be in need of a minimum security level while incarcerated than the general prison receptions population.

Sentence Length (yrs.)Minimum SentenceMaximum SentenceMale6.815 Days999 YearsFemale5.425 Days65 YearsTotal6.6Note: Life, Life without Parole, and Death sentences were removed.Though the average sentence length for DUI offenses is not the same for each year’s reception population, it has remained fairly constant – ranging from 3.7 to 4.3 years – and averages 3.9 years for the five-year time frame. The same trend applies to all receptions.
8 Receptions – Sentence Length by Race Average Sentence LengthNative American DUI receptions received the longest average sentence length, 4.3 years.Regarding all receptions, African Americans received the longest average sentence, 7.0 years.Note: Life, Life without Parole, and Death sentence were removed.
9 Receptions – Avg. Sent. Length by County DUI ReceptionsAll ReceptionsAverage Sentence LengthAverage Sentence LengthOklahoma County is among the top five counties sending offenders to prison. More interesting is that it also has the highest average sentence for controlling crimes, ranging between one and two years longer.Note: Life, Life without Parole, and Death sentences were removed.

The assessment helps to determine the risk of reoffending.
12 Receptions – LSI-R Risk Level DUI ReceptionsAll ReceptionsBased on responses to LSI-R elements, a risk level is determined (i.e., High, Moderate, Low). DUI offenders are slightly more represented in the Moderate category, whereas all receptions are more evenly split between Moderate and High.
13 Receptions – Programmatic Needs Percent in NeedDUI receptions are more likely to be assessed with a Moderate to High need for substance abuse treatment than the general population, 82% vs. 67%.
14 Receptions – TABE Scores Average Grade LevelTABE stands for Test of Adult Basic Education and it assesses the individual’s skill level in various subjects. Average TABE scores are generally the same for both populations, DUI and all receptions, resulting in an average total battery grade level of 6.7.
15 Receptions – Mental Health Level DUI ReceptionsAll ReceptionsApproximately 41% of DUI offenders and 48% of all offenders have been assessed with a MHL of A – D. Of those with a MHL A-D, the majority are assessed B.
16 Incarcerated Offenders Comparisons between the DUI and general prison population
17 DUI Incarcerates – Offense Type Number of OffendersApproximately 25,600 offenders are currently incarcerated; 23,000 males and 2,600 females. Offenders serving time on a controlling DUI conviction account for 2.5% of the population; males – 2.5% and females – 2.0%.

They are also, on average, serving considerably shorter sentences for their controlling offense when compared to all incarcerates.
19 Incarcerates – Race/Ethnicity DUI IncarceratesAll IncarceratesCaucasians make up the majority of both DUI and general incarcerates, however there is a greater representation of Native-American offenders and fewer African-American offenders when compared to the entire population.
20 Incarcerates – Facility Type Percent of IncarceratesMany more of the DUI offenders when compared to the general population are housed at Community-level facilities, which are no higher than Minimum security.

22 Incarcerates – Earned Credit Level DUI IncarceratesAll IncarceratesOffenders earn good time credits based on their behavior and the accumulation of these credits reduce the time the offender is imprisoned. DUI offenders and all incarcerates both have a similar representation in the highest credit level category (Level 4), 43% and 49%, respectively.

The majority are projected to release in less than two years.
24 Prison ReleasesComparisons between DUI-specific and general prison releases for a five-year period.
25 Releases – Offense Type DUI ReleasesAll Releases
26 Releases – General Info CategoryDUI ReleasesAll ReleasesMale91%85%Female9%15%Average Age43.0 years36.8 yearsAverage Sentence Length3.8 years6.4 yearsDUI prison releases are slightly more male and higher in age than all prison releases. They are also, on average, serving considerably shorter sentences for their controlling offense when compared to all releases.
27 Releases – Sentence & Time Served MalesFemalesAverage LengthAverage LengthBased on average controlling offense sentence length and average time served, offenders are serving approximately 47% of their sentence. This is true for males and females, DUI-specific and general releases.
28 Releases – LSI-R Risk Level DUI ReleasesAll ReleasesDUI releases tend to represent the Moderate Risk category more so than all prison releases.
29 Releases – Met Program Needs DUI ReleasesAll ReleasesPercent NeedsPercent NeedsRegarding both populations, approximately 25% or fewer specific needs are being met prior to the offender discharging from prison. However, more DUI offenders completed Substance Abuse treatment than all releases.
30 Releases – Post-prison Supervision Percent of ReleasesFewer DUI offenders released from prison to ODOC probation or parole supervision when compared to all prison releases.
31 Releases – Returns to Prison Recidivism RateDUIAll ReleasesNumberPercentMale53019.1%8,71025.5%Female2511.1%1,03917.0%New DUI SentenceDUIAll ReleasesNumberPercentMale41478.1%8689.9%Female1976.0%605.8%Recidivism is defined as returning to an ODOC reception center within three years of releasing from prison. Statistics are based on Fiscal Year 2004 through Fiscal Year 2008 prison releases. DUI offenders recidivate less frequently than the overall prison release population.
32 ConclusionsSeveral concluding remarks can be made regarding offender profile differences:DUI prison receptions and prison releases have remained relatively constant over the past five years.DUI imprisonments when compared to all ODOC imprisoned offenders are generally more moderate-risk and are in need of lower security levels.DUI imprisonments have a higher need for substance abuse treatment than the overall imprisoned population, but this need is only being met, at best, for 25% of the offenders.The recidivism rate for DUI offenders is generally lower than the recidivism rate for all prison releases.
