Fiscal Note Summary


Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.


    Although the WVDOC cannot predict how many additional offenders would be sentenced to our custody under the proposed code, for each additional offender the State could expect a minimum cost of $24,266 (the average cost per inmate in FY2010). Offenders sentenced to 1-3 year terms for DUI typically either make parole after one year or discharge their sentence in 1.5 years with good time so costs would typically range from $24,266 to $36,399 per offender. For offenders sentenced under a second subsequent violation the state should expect a minimum cost of$48,532 if an offender paroles after 2 years or $121,330 if the offender discharges their sentence after five years with good time.
