Fiscal Note Summary

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

    As of FY 2011, the WVDOC had only one inmate incarcerated for Purchase or Sale of a Child. However, for each additional inmate sentenced if this bill becomes law, the state can expect a cost of $23,674 per year they are incarcerated (average cost per inmate in FY 2011). Offenders in WVDOC custody serving 1-10 year sentences typically discharge their sentence after 5 years (23,674 x 5 = $118,370), as opposed to the typical 1.5 year stay with a 1-3 year sentence, if they do not receive parole earlier.
