The tapes contained the names, criminal histories and sentencing records of 65,000 inmates who have moved through the state prison system since the late 1970s. The Free Press ted the Information Into a computer, at Wayne State University and isolated the records of the 5,762 Inmates who were paroled from prison in 1983. Paroles granted in 1983 were selected because studies show that parolees who get Into trouble usually do so within 14 months of their release. Detroit computer consultant Larry Kostecke and Free Press reporter David Ashenfeltec spent five months analyzing the records to determine how early the paroieesgot out of prison, howmany returned and the types of new crimes they committed. - Thechartaonthispagearestatisticalprofllesofthe 1983 paroiees and the crimes for which they were sentenced before their '83 paroles. 1200 p. 1050 IZ 900 - tz 750 r 600 tz -j 450 300 TZ 150 j" ' lit 1 1 i mini: zz, ? iL '; M . . 1 v.) 1 10 ail J "1 I Percent of minimum sentence served by 5,762 parolees 153 of '83 Sarolees served 0 or more of" their sentences 100 TlTTTri 150 199 percent of prison term Dow long they were serving Up to one year 516 1 Two years 1,440 3 Three 1,263 Four 794 Five 583 Six 208 D Seven 152 D Eight 172 I Nine 51 10 290 11-15 218 I 16-20 44 I 21-25 13 I 26-30 6 I 31-35 2 40 2 45 2 75 1 Life 5 I A STUDY OF 5,762 PAROLEES I Where prisoners wore sentenced Detroit 1,836 ' 1 Oakland 642 CS Wayne 459 13 Genesee 356 Kent 312 Macomb 200 Washtenaw 187 Muskegon 162 D Kalamazoo 151 I Berrien 136 I Jackson 126 I Saginaw 121 I Ingham 86 I Monroe 82 I Calhoun 78 I Bay 55 I St. Clair 46 I St. Joseph 44 I Ottawa 44 I Livingston 33 I Vanburen 32 I Lenawee 30 I Hillsdale 24 I Allegan 22 I Tuscola 20 I Midland 20 I Montcalm 19 I Grand Traverse 19 I Clinton 18 I Cass 18 I Shiawassee 16 I Isabella 16 I Eaton 16 I Ionia 15 I Branch 14 I Crawford 13 I Sanilac 12 I Lapeer 12 I Dickinson 10 I bar,22p2ry 10 I Newaygo 9 I Huron 9 Wayne County not including Detroit No parolees were sentenced from these six counties: Cheboyoan, Chippewa, Gladwin, Keweenaw, Montmorency, Ooemaw.
