Jon Sharp pt3 ๐ŸŽง The Goal of Criminal Justice is Control

Jonathan Sharp, Masters in Criminal Justice, Rowan University, draws on his personal experiences and extensive analytics research to discuss prisoner reentry, racial disparities in the prison system, and what needs to change.


Welcome back to part III in this conversation with Meg's former student, Jon Sharp. ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ

“Prisoner Reentry” refers to the transition of offenders from prisons or jails back into the community.  Over 640,000 people are released from state and federal prisons each years, but more than half are unable to find jobs and more than 3/4 are re-arrested within 3-5 years of release.  They remain “stuck in the system”, despite having served their sentence.
