This data collection provides statistical information on how
prosecutors and the courts disposed of criminal cases involving adults
arrested for felony crimes in an individual urban jurisdiction, St.
Louis. The cases in the data file represent cases initiated in 1982,
defined as screened, or filed in 1982. The collection includes
disposition data on felonies for which an initial court charge was
filed (cases filed) and for those felony arrests that were ultimately
indicted or bound over to the felony court for disposition (cases
indicted). It does not include information on all felony arrests
declined for prosecution. It is, with a few exceptions, extracted from
the defendant, case, charge and sentence records.
