Mark Pogrebin Quoted on Private Prisons

Professor Pogrebin is quoted and his research is discussed in the article “Colorado’s Privatized System Of Community Corrections Is An Experiment In Misery” published in Westword  on Sept. 29, 2015.

“The whole objective is making money, not helping people,” says Mark Pogrebin, a criminal-justice professor at the University of Colorado Denver. “I call it ‘punishment for profit.’” Pogrebin recently co-authored a study that involved interviewing dozens of Colorado parolees about their financial situation. The researchers discovered that finding a job, while difficult, was no guarantee of success.
