How to Become a Bounty Hunter



More than Third of Released Prisoners Arrested Within 6 Months of Release

If prison is designed to prevent repeat offenses, it’s failing miserably.

Business Insider reports that more than a third of state prisoners were arrested within six months of being released, and that number jumped to 56.7% within the first year, 67.8% within three years and 76.6 % within five years.

Those numbers were even higher for inmates who were 24 years old and younger.

The staggering statistics raise serious questions about the role of prisons and their ability to rehabilitate offenders.

Property offenders were most likely to land in trouble again, with 82.1% committing crimes within five years of being released from prison.
