UK Sees Increase in Recidivism

From the TimesOnline:  "Thousands of prisoners who were freed under supervision are being sent back to jail after being caught reoffending, according to a report published today.  The number of prisoners released after serving short sentences for burglary and theft who are then being recalled to jail has almost quadrupled in four years.  Officials in the Home Office are so concerned at the figures that, for the first time, they are investigating the reason for the surge in recalls."   Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
