    Understanding prison violence: a rapid evidence assessment. Professor James McGuire. Liverpool University. The occurrence of violent assault in prison is a challenging problem. This Analytical Summary reports the findings of a rapid evidence assessment (REA) into the causes of physically violent assaults by male adult prisoners. The REA. For a long time, the consensus blamed three-strike laws, mandatory minimum sentences, stop-and-frisk, and the rest of the oppressive apparatus of panicked anti-crime policy.

      The median time in prison of someone convicted of violence remains about four to four-and-a-half years. That’s a long time in prison, but not some staggeringly long sentence. The facts are that: 1) people in prison for violent crimes and people who have served long prison terms are the safest people to release; and 2) the only way to address the problem of mass incarceration is to reduce sentences for violent crimes and release people from prison who statistics show are unlikely to commit another crime.

    Indeterminate sentences are those in which the legislature sets a minimum and/or maximum time of incarceration but leaves the decision as to when to release an inmate to prison officials. As a general rule, indeterminate sentences are only imposed on people who are sentenced to state prison after being convicted of a felony. In the case of prison sentences, this could result from an increasing desire for freedom or growing distaste for the prison environment as the time in prison increases (Polinsky and Shavell, 22). Risk-averse individuals prefer a certain penalty, f, to an uncertain penalty with a mean of f.

Most offenders are sentenced to California state prison for a set amount of time under the Determinate Sentencing Law (DSL).

That percentage is down from 60% in FY The average sentence length was years, and time served before release averaged slightly more than 11 years.
