Reoffending rates reach all time high

A record number of offenders sentenced for serious crimes had committed previous offences, according to 2011 figures.

90% of people sentenced in England and Wales had offended before, and almost a third had committed or was linked to 15 or more crimes.

Reoffending rates were the highest amongst serious offenders who had previously been jailed.

Swain & Co.’s criminal defence solicitors are concerned that not enough is being done to support offenders when they are released from prison. Who is monitoring these individuals? Are they working? Is there enough access to support services for them?

Our prison lawyers go on to say that rehabilitation for offenders is not achieved solely through the prison system, the support must be ongoing and the services provided in prison must be aimed at giving offenders the ongoing tools to function back in society.

If you need, or have a loved one who needs criminal defence call the Crime team on 02392 483322 (Havant/Southampton), or call our team at Southampton on 02380 631111.
