dc.description.abstract This fact sheet presents a summary of Superior Court felony case filing and disposition information published by the Alaska Court System (ACS) in its annual statistical reports for the period FY 2005 to FY 2012. Over the 8-year period, the total number of felony case filings increased 13.1 percent, but the percentage of all case filings that were felonies remained stable. The percentage of felony cases that were for violent (person) crimes, drug crimes, and other crimes declined during the 8-year period, while the percentage that were for property crimes increased. A large majority of Superior Court felony cases resulted in a disposition of "guilty," with most such dispositions the result of a plea. Only 2.9 percent of felony cases filed in Superior Court go to trial; of these, nearly 80 percent resulted in a finding of guilt. en_US
