Is life without parole an effective way to reduce violent crime? An empirical assessment Criminology & Public Policy (IF4.333), Pub Date : 2020-05-18, DOI: 10.1111/1745-9133.12496 Ross Kleinstuber, Jeremiah Coldsmith
By taking advantage of data published by the Sentencing Project to analyze whether states that use life without parole (LWOP) more often experience lower violent crime rates or greater reductions in violent crime, this study is the first to empirically assess the crime‐reducing potential of LWOP sentences. The results suggest that LWOP might produce a small absolute reduction in violent crime but that it is no more effective than life with parole.
