What is the average length of stay for an inmate at the prison?

Venango County Prison can house an inmate sentenced to the prison for a period of up to 5 years. Most inmates sentenced to the prison have a maximum sentence of up to 2 years.

A sentence of 2 years or longer is typically a sentence served in a state correctional facility, but the sentencing judge has the discretion to sentence an inmate to the prison for a period of up to 5 years.

The average length of time an inmate spends in the prison is approximately 60 days. This includes inmates who are brought to the prison and released on bond within a few days, 48 hour driving under the influence (DUI) sentences, and inmates serving a maximum sentence of 5 years in the prison. A median time an inmate stays in the prison is approximately 9 to 12 months.
