Annotation: A profile of the clients released from the Richmond Community Rehabilitation Center (Virginia) during fiscal year 1980 and a followup of those who successfully completed the program during fiscal year 1979 are presented.
Abstract: Of the 91 clients released during 1980, 29 were white, 60 were black, and 2 were hispanic. Their average age at commitment to the center was 28 years; of the 57 who completed the program, a majority were between the ages of 20 and 25. A length of stay of 1 month was recorded for 13 clients, 3 months for 59, and 4 months or longer for 19 clients (the longest stay was 7 months). characteristics of present or past substance abuse were noted in 34 cases. Of these released, 68 were parolees and 23 were probationers. The program was not completed by 30 clients; of those 30, 7 were arrested and incarcerated for technical violations and 4 for new felony or misdemeanor convictions, 12 absconded, and 6 were discharged because of adjustment problems or the violation of program rules. Of those released, 27 clients had committed offenses against persons, 57 had committed crimes against property, and the remainder had committed other crimes. A total of 71 clients did not have a high school education and 89 clients were employed during the period of nonincarceration (24 held common laborer jobs). Of the 39 clients who were released from the center in 1979 after completing the program, 12 were arrested during 1980, with 7 of these convicted of misdemeanor or felony charges (no disposition had been released for the others). Of the 39 released, 20 were regularly employed, and only 1 of the 20 was convicted of an offense. Other data are included in data tables and narratives.
