Section 3  Correction

  Table 3-5-3-1 shows the cumulative percentage of those inmates reimprisoned from 2000 to 2005 after their release from penal institutions in 2000.
  A greater number of inmates who were released on termination of sentence committed repeat offenses sooner than those released on parole. Considering those inmates who were reimprisoned in 2005, the examination on the period from their previous release to their repeat offenses, which were their reimprisonment reasons, revealed that the percentage of those reimprisoned in less than one year after their release (among offenses for which 100 persons or more had been reimprisoned) was the highest in previous offenses of breaking into a residence at 58.1%, followed by fraud at 55.0%, theft at 47.4%, and forcible indecency at 42.9% (See Appendix 2-9).
  Table 3-5-3-2 shows the cumulative percentage of inmates who were released between 1996 and 2000 and reimprisoned within five years from the year of their release. There have been no significant changes in the reimprisonment rate.
