Twenty-two percent of state prisoners who maxed out their sentences were released without any supervision in 2012, undercutting efforts to prevent recidivism and improve public safety, according to a report released Wednesday.
“Max Out: The Rise in Prison Inmates Released Without Supervision” found that myriad laws and policies adopted in the 1980s and ‘90s has led to a stark increase in the rate at which those inmates serve their full sentences behind bars, leaving no time for parole or probation agencies to monitor their whereabouts and activities. The so-called “max-out rate” grew 119 percent between 1990 and 2012, from fewer than 50,000 to more than 100,000, according to The Pew Charitable Trusts survey.
