Description

The Department of the Attorney General released a major study of prison sentence lengths, parole decision making, parolee recidivism, and other corrections-related information. The AG’s study, conducted in partnership with the University of Hawaii, was based on the records of 314 prisoners released to parole during Fiscal Year 1998 and tracked for 24 months post-release. Additional sentencing data were collected on offenders entering prison during January, March, May, and July of 2000. Parole hearings were observed and interviews were conducted with Hawaii Paroling Authority staff in order to examine the parole board’s decision-making processes, procedures, and objectives.
