Criminal Justice Flowchart

"This flowchart of the events in the criminal justice system updates the original chart prepared by the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice in 1967. Accompanied by a clarifying text description, the chart summarizes the most common events in the criminal and juvenile justice systems including entry into the criminal justice system, prosecution and pretrial services, adjudication, sentencing and sanctions, and corrections.

Electronic files of both full color and black and white versions of the chart available for downloading [from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.]"
