Chapter Summary

Offenders range from minor violators to murderers and rapists. The offenders themselves might benefit from such an international transfer of supervision in several ways. First, judges in sentencing countries are more likely to grant probation when they know that the offenders will be supervised after deportation to their countries of nationality. Second, to the extent that conditional release of imprisoned offenders is subject to discretionary decisions of the parole authorities of sentencing countries, it can be anticipated that such authorities will release foreign inmates at an earlier date when they know that the offenders will be supervised after deportation. Third, offenders, who would be subject to supervision upon their return to their countries of nationality, would benefit from the availability of formal programs to assist their reintegration into their own societies. This chapter provides prospects for United States Treaties.
