Parolees less likely to commit new crimes than those who 'max out'
from The Pew Charitable Trusts
Nearly 700,000 offenders were released from U.S. prisons in 2011. Ensuring their successful re-entry into the community remains a critical issue for public safety. A new analysis of New Jersey data, commissioned by The Pew Charitable Trusts, shows that inmates released to parole supervision are less likely to be arrested, convicted and incarcerated for new crimes than inmates who serve — or "max out," — their full prison sentences and are released without supervision.
