America has the highest incarceration rates in the world.
In 2012, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, countries comparable to the United States, an average of 100 per 100,000 people are sent to prison, while in the US there was an imprisonment rate of 500 per 100,000. That is 50% higher than Russia and 320% higher than China! In 2013 the average toll rose to 716 per 100,000. In 2012 there was a record 2.2 million people in either jail or prison. This is a 500% increase over the past 30 years! The Pew Center on the States reports that there is at least 4.6 million people who are living under some sort of correctional supervision. This does not include the 2.2 million in jail.
The majority of prisoners are males who are in their 20s to early 30s. They make up 90% of the prison population, which is 14% higher than the rate of women. The average cost for an individual who is in prison in between $20K-$30K.
We understand that many people are sent to prison who are innocent and they need all the time they can get to seek the best legal team to represent them. Just remember that 24/7 Nashville Bonding Company is always here to bail you out of jail so you can spend your valuable time wisely.
