If a person over 30 months sentence cannot be rehabilitated then they should not be released back into the community. This government wants people off unemployment and into jobs then they are going to have to change the Rehabilitation of offenders act that any sentence has a rehabiltation period of non offending. one in every four people in the UK has a criminal record but a chance has to be given to people who are rehabilitated or whats the point.
