Weisheit, Ralph A.; Klofas, John M.
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v14 n1 p51-65 1989
Examined collateral costs of incarceration for jail inmates. Explored relationship between costs of confinement and affective responses of inmates to incarceration. Found collateral costs could be extensive and were unrelated to legal status, prior criminal history, time in jail, or resources available to inmate at arrest. Collateral costs appeared to have significant influence on adjustment to jail environment. (Author/NB)
