Abstract:

The association between tools used to assess risk for violence and decisions by parole boards regarding parole suitability was examined among 5187 inmates serving indeterminate life sentences in California. Inmates on average tended to be at moderate to low risk of reoffending as indexed by the HCR-20, LS/CMI, and psychologists’ overall estimate of risk. PCL-R scores also were relatively low. Only 11.3% of inmates were granted parole during a 22-month period. Most (72%) inmates who psychologists judged to be at low risk were not granted parole. Of the tools studied, the HCR-20 had a relatively larger association with parole decisions.
