Abstract
Purpose: Older adults in prison present a significant health and human rights challenge for the criminal justice system. To date, there is no known study that provides a comprehensive examination or portrait of older persons in prison. The current study attempts to fill a gap in the literature by providing a holistic analysis of a U.S. statewide prison system of adults aged 50 and older in prison. The objectives of this study are to: (1) examine the biopsychosocial, spiritual, and legal factors associated with these prisoners, (2) explore the influence of these personal and social structural factors on recidivism, and (3) examine the role of family and sentence length in bridging older adults to their families and communities while in prison and post prison release. Methods: This study provides a cross-sectional, descriptive analysis of biopsychosocial, spiritual, and prison use characteristics associated with a sample of 677 older prisoners, aged 50+, in a state-wide prison system in the United States. The current study is a cross-sectional analysis of a sample of 677 older adult prisoners aged 50 and older (40% response rate) housed in the New Jersey Department of Corrections in September 2010 who completed an anonymous, self-administered mail survey. Data were collected using a modified version of the Dillman, et al. (2009) four-step mail methods strategy. Participants completed a battery of survey instruments, including the personal and professional contact scale.
