AN ANALYSIS OF THE UNINTENTIONAL BUT INEVITABLE CONSEQUENCIES OF IMPRISONMENT AND HOW THEY HAMPER THE PROCESS OF PRISONERS REINTEGRATION BACK TO THE SOCIETY

Kaguta Ruth Joyce Nyawira

Abstract


Most scholars have concentrated so much on studying the impact and consequencies of imprisonment and little effort has been focused on the hidden ramifications of imprisonments. These are unintended but unavoidable consequences of imprisonment, they are not often foreseen at sentencing but have a tremendous impact not only on the offender, but also on families, communities, and on the nation as a whole. They make it difficult for the offender to be resettled back in to the community after the completion of the imprisonment period. This paper therefore recommends the utilization of alternative to imprisonment as a cure for the offender’s inability to fit and be reintegrated back to the society after imprisonment.
Keywords: Imprisonment, Unintentional and Unintended Consequencies, Reintegration
