Reconviction Patterns of offenders managed in the community: A 60-months follow-up analysis

This report is the second in a series of reports which summarise patterns of reconviction (over 5 years) amongst almost 35000 offenders who started community sentences in 2002/03.

Offender characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, age at start of sentence, age at first conviction, offence type and offenders’ previous criminal history are each examined with reference to reconviction and imprisonment.

The study also pays particular attention to reconviction outcomes for offenders on Home Detention orders.
