Examining Parole Revocation Patterns

In the state of Utah, a revocation to prison from parole can occur in two instances, (1) if the offender failed to comply with their supervision conditions and (2) if the offender was convicted of a new crime while on parole. It should be emphasized that changes in revocation rates through time may not speak to changes in offender behavior but rather the nature and enforcement of criminal justice policies and practices. Additionally, it may not be reflective of general health trends and other dynamic social phenomena. With this in mind, this study examines revocation patterns through the lens of Utah’s current criminal justice policies using a one-year follow-up time.
