Increasing Earned Release from Prison: Impacts of 2003 Law on Recidivism and Criminal Justice Costs

Group: Washington State Institute for Public Policy

URL: http://www.wsipp.wa.gov/pub.asp?docid=09-04-1201

Description

The Institute was directed by the Legislature to evaluate the effect of the 2003 law. Our overall recidivism findings remain consistent with those in the original November 2008 report; we strengthened the cost-benefit analysis for this revised version and find that the law generates benefits of $1.88 per dollar of cost.
