Recidivism
english

Recidivism is the act of a person repeating a behavior that brings attention to the criminal justice system after they have either experienced negative consequences of that behavior, or have been treated to eliminate that behavior. It is also used to refer to the percentage of former offenders who are rearrested, reconvicted, or returned to custody. (Henslin, J. 2008).
