Citizens United for the Rehabilitation of Errants held its national

convention in Washington, DC to discuss issues associated with the

American criminal justice system. During the forum titled,

“Inmates in Gray: The Aging Prisoner Population,” panel members

discussed the special problems associated with older prison inmates.

Professor Turley cited statistics stating that while the recidivism

rate for older prisoners is below ten percent, by the year 2000 there

will be 125,000 older prisoners in U.S. prisons, each of whom is

three times as expensive to house as a younger prisoner. The forum

sought to determine improved ways of utilizing the resources of the

American judicial and criminal justice systems in cases involving

elderly or aging prisoners. close
