Ohio, in 1965, was the first state to initiate a shock-probation program, which it calls “judicial release.”
The recidivism rate refers to committing a crime after release from incarceration, and for Ohio, that rate is higher than in Kentucky.
The latest rate released by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, which tabulates recidivism rates on a 3-year cycle, was 38 percent, compared to 33.3 percent for Kentucky’s latest figures.
