Description

It's been suggested that many probation and parole violators who have been returned to prison might be better served by other sanctions, thus relieving overcrowding in the Alaska prison system. This article analyzes the characteristics of 67 offenders who appeared before the Alaska Parole Board at parole revocation hearings during the summer of 1990. The data indicate that, while some violators could be diverted from returning to prison if intermediate sanctions were available, the numbers diverted would probably not be large.
