IMPRISONMENT TIME IMPOSED

Data Element: IMPRISONMENT TIME IMPOSED
Definition: The number assigned by the local agency that identifies the incident or complaint.
Standard of Verification: None
Data Type: AN
Field Size: 12
Field Format: 18AN(See example in Comments for further details.)
Originating Teams: Law Enforcement
User Teams: Law Enforcement
Tables / Codes: See Comments.
Comments: This element may be used in conjunction with SENTENCE TYPE. IMPRISONMENT TIME IMPOSED is comprised of a minimum and a maximum portion, each of which is 9 characters. The minimum time should be placed in the first 9 characters and the maximum time in the last 9 characters of the field. If the time imposed is not a time range, the time is placed in the maximum portion and the minimum is set to spaces. For numeric values, each nine-character portion will be divided into three sections, each comprised of three digits. The first section represents years, the second section represents months, the last section represents days (each three-digit section should be right justified with leading zeros). For alpha values (i.e., LIFE, TS, LWOP) the characters will be left justified in the maximum portion. For intermittent imprisonment, the time recorded in the maximum time will be the duration of the term and not the actual time spent in jail. If, for example, a defendant is sentenced to six months in weekends, the six months would appear in the maximum field only.
In the following examples, a period represents a blank space:
