Recidivism among Federal Offenders: A Comprehensive Overview
"This report provides a broad overview of key findings from the United
States Sentencing Commission’s study of recidivism of federal offenders.
The Commission studied offenders who were either released from federal
prison after serving a sentence of imprisonment or placed on a term of
probation in 2005. Nearly half (49.3%) of such offenders were rearrested
within eight years for either a new crime or for some other violation
of the condition of their probation or release conditions. This report
discusses the Commission’s recidivism research project and provides many
additional findings from that project."
