Description

The story is about nonviolent juveniles who go to adult prison and come out worse. The author found that non-violent juveniles were more likely than violent ones to come back to prison for committing a new violent crime within three years of release, and that non-violent juveniles were four times as likely as non-violent adults to graduate to a violent crime. The story revealed a lack of rehabilitative programs for juveniles, an environment of violence and racial segregation that hardens teens and a lack of re-entry services. Non-violent juveniles, on average, are completely on their own, without any supervision, 7 1/2 months after they are released.
