    Sentencing and Justice Reinvestment in Michigan

    Applying a Justice Reinvestment Approach to Improve Michigan's Sentencing System summarizes analyses using a justice reinvestment approach of Michigan's felony sentencing system for its impacts on public safety, recidivism trends, and state and local spending.
