State Inmate Finder Additional Information

A state inmate ends up in a state prison or penitentiary for a multitude of violations. Most notably are criminal offenses that are tried in a state court where a conviction is handed down and the inmate is sentenced to a state prison. Initially a person is often placed in a city or county jail until the court proceeding takes place where the inmate in question is sentenced. Depending on the nature of the crime and the court’s sentencing, the inmate will either end up in a state prison, penitentiary or correctional facility.  State prisons vary from federal prison and local jail facilities in many respects. Most notably of these differences are the inmate populations and crimes and convictions that landed the inmates there. In the United States there are currently over 1,700 state prisons,  102 federal prisons and 3,200 local jails and over 2.4 million inmates that have been incarcerated.
