    A study of more than 16,000 Connecticut prisoners has found that over 67 percent are rearrested within three years of their release.

    The just released three-year study by the state Office of Policy and Management followed 16,241 offenders who were released from custody in 2005.

    It found that 67.5 percent were rearrested, 53.7 percent were convicted of a new crime, and 56.5 percent were returned to prison, either for parole violations or to begin a new sentence. Those rates were virtually unchanged from a similar report released last year.

    The data showed prisoners released from parole (24.7 percent) or community supervision programs (27.9 percent) were much less likely to be re-arrested.
