All over America, legislation for prison reform is popping up as estimates show significant numbers of inmates to be released from prison. Under the new earned sentence credit program, thousands of inmates (not convicted of violent offenses) could see their sentences cut by a third. Once released correctional programs like prerelease, work release, halfway houses, and reentry programs will be inundated with new cases and will need to prepare now for the influx of those formerly incarcerated.
Under current proposed legislative efforts, 14,000 Virginia inmates could be released early and 75,000 inmates in California. These are not isolated cases either. Several states are introducing similar prison reform laws to give pathways out for inmates demonstrating good behavior.
