Florida prisons lead nation in releasing unsupervised inmates

Florida leads the nation in the number of inmates who are released from prison with no supervision or support, a new study concludes. The Pew Charitable Trusts conducted a state-by-state analysis of so-called “max-outs,” or inmates who serve their full sentences and are released to the community with no monitoring programs in place. A large number of those inmates commit new crimes, resulting in more victims, and are sent back to prison at enormous costs to taxpayers.
