Recidivism in Alaska's Felony Therapeutic Courts

Group: Alaska Judicial Council

URL: http://www.ajc.state.ak.us/reports/recidtherct07.pdf

Description

Comparison of the recidivism rates of 117 offenders who participated the Anchorage Felony Driving Under the Influence, Anchorage Felony Drug, and Bethel Therapeutic Courts to the recidivism rates of 97 matched offenders who did not participate in the therapeutic courts but who had similar characteristics as the participants, including substance abuse and/or alcohol problems. The Council found that graduates of these therapeutic courts were rearrested and re-convicted far less frequently than comparison offenders. The Council also compared the recidivism rates of these groups to the baseline recidivism rates of about two thousand offenders charged with felonies in 1999 and convicted of some offense. The recidivism rates of these baseline offenders are the subject of the Council’s companion report Criminal Recidivism in Alaska.
