Who Goes Back to Prison; Who Does Not: A Multiyear View of Reentry Program Participants
Severson, Margaret E.; Veeh, Christopher; Bruns, Kimberly; Lee, Jaehoon
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v51 n5 p295-315 2012
Existing studies of reentry programs in the United States focus on the successes and failures of reentering offenders when compared to matched reentering offenders who did not receive structured reentry services. Little attention has been focused solely on the reentry participants themselves, and on how the level of program exposure may be related to recidivism outcomes. This study reports the recidivism outcomes of 357 reentry participants released to the community during a multiyear study period. All of the 357 participants studied were released for at least one full year, making it possible to examine recidivism behaviors by levels of reentry program exposure, at similar points in time. Thus, a range of descriptive and program attributes and an analysis of these attributes vis-a-vis defined recidivism measures is presented to answer the question: "Who goes back to prison?"
