The Ex-Offender's Re-Entry Success Guide: Smart Choices for Making It on the Outside! by Ronald L. Krannich

No question about it - by almost any measure, America operates the world's largest, costliest, and most dysfunctional criminal justice ($250 billion) and incarceration ($80 billion) systems. With nearly 2.2 million prisoners in state and federal institutions, another 12 million circulating in and out of jails and detention centers, and 77 million with arrest records, America is an arrested society with more troubling rap sheets than promising resumes! Indeed, each year nearly 700,000 ex-offenders exit prison for the free world. Within three years of release, two-thirds return to prison where they each cost taxpayers between $25,000 and $210,000 a year to experience justice and retribution.
