Conjugal Visits

- Prisons are meant to help rehabilitate the way of life for people who have committed crimes. However, the criminal justice system has not proved to be as effective as it should be. Two thirds of people who come out of prison are rearrested within three years (Parker, 2009). I believe this is because the justice system has failed and individuals are not receiving the services for a successful transition into the community. Instead, they remain as criminals. I strongly believe that allowing inmates the right to conjugal visits will help ensure a criminal is rehabilitated and ready to re-enter society....   [tags: Criminal Justice]
