4 Reimprisonment

   Table 2-4-2-9 shows the rates of inmates released in 1997 but reimprisoned by the end of each year until the end of 2002. Inmates released on termination of sentence have a tendency to commit repeat offenses sooner than those released on parole. Viewing the rates of reimprisoned inmates according to the period until committing a repeat offense (the period from the date of release to the date of committing the repeat offense that was the reason for reimprisonment) in 2002 by type of previous offense, the rate of larceny was 39.2%, which was the highest, followed by Stimulant Drug Control Law violation (26.3%) among inmates reimprisoned in less than 1 year after the release (see Appendix 2-10 ).
   Table 2-4-2-10 shows the cumulative rates of inmates who were released between 1993 and 1997 and reimprisoned within 5 years from the year of release.
