Determining the Timing of Parole Discharge Based on the Concept of “Redemption”

Determining the Timing of Parole Discharge Based on the Concept of “Redemption”

Using data from Pennsylvania, this National Institute of Justice funded project estimate a time point when the recidivism risk of parolees declines to a sufficiently low level. Such time points can be used by parole agencies to determine when those parolees who stay crime-free can be discharged early from parole without risking public safety.
