Annotation: This study examined the role of the judge in reentry courts.
Abstract: While research has confirmed their role adaptation and importance in reducing recidivism in drug courts, little research has documented the role of the judge in reentry courts. Based on interviews with participants and the workgroup, court observations, and a document analysis, this study revealed that judges in a federal reentry court program balance informal, supportive relationships with participants with more traditional, authoritative, disciplinarian roles. The implications of this balancing act for participants' perceptions and other reentry court programs are also discussed. Abstract published by arrangement with Taylor and Francis.
