Letter: Longer sentences linked to increased recidivism

Letter: Longer sentences linked to increased recidivism | Interesting Florida Criminal and DUI News | Scoop.it
The conclusion of Florida’s 2014 Legislature will see children at greater risk, not safer.Principal among the proposals “strengthening” laws to protect children are measures to lengthen prison terms for sex crimes, and widening the range of sentences that lead to eligibility for civil commitment.The Colorado Department of Public Safety issued a report in February 2008, “What Works —Effective Recidivism Reduction and Risk-Focused Prevention Programs.” Numerous evidence-based studies were cited that uniformly and conclusively linked longer prison sentences with increased recidivism.Several states have opted out of the Adam Walsh Act because it mandates risk assessment by crime of conviction. The California Sex Offender Management Board revealed significant failures in crime-based criteria and that actuarial tools developed through experience and evidence were far more accurate in predicting recidivism. Florida made sentences match those crimes the Adam Walsh Act required to be used to assign tier levels and impose civil commitment. Those criteria failed 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle last year and allowed Donald Smith to go free when actuarial assessment protocols likely would have committed him. Smith, a registered sex offender, was released from jail only 21 days before he was arrested in the kidnapping and killing of Cherish in Jacksonville in June. What’s important — looking tough on crime, or implementing what works? Votes, or safer children?
