Chaiken, J. M. (n.d.). Compendium of Federal Justice Statistics, 1996. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Investigated by U.S. attorneys for possible violations of the U.S. code, and criminal charges were filed in U.S. district courts against about 65,500 defendants, a third of whom were prosecuted for drug offenses. The majority (86%) of the 61,434 defendants whose cases were terminated in U.S. district courts during 1996 were convicted. Among those convicted, 68% were sentenced to prison for an average of 61 months. At the end of 1996, the Federal Bureau of Prisons held more than 92,650 prisoners who had been convicted of a Federal offense, an increase of 5% over 1995. Sixty percent of those held by the Bureau of Prisons were convicted and sentenced for drug offenses.
