is by far the worst reason to end up in jail because inmates who have committed
this crime usually get life in prison. Although all the crimes mentioned above
can cause you to go to jail or prison, murder will likely keep you in jail
without bail until a criminal case is resolved.
Here are a few tips
that can help people with minimizing or preventing any chances of going to jail or prison:
Be Responsible and
is the first step to healing and making sure you don't go to or back to jail or prison. By
being accountable, you understand the reasons why you were sent to jail or prison and
know you don't want to go back if you are released. Research has shown that over 76% of people that
have been in jail usually end up going back. This could be due to a lack of
support and resources and bad lifestyle choices. It's important to always be
responsible and humble as this will help you be teachable. Attend therapy and timely check-in with your probation or parole officer.
of the major reasons why many people end up in jail or prison is because they are unaware
of the different criminal laws. You need to learn the difference between a
violation, misdemeanor, felony, and crime. Realize the statistics that may be or may not be in your favor when it comes to the laws and risk of incarceration and govern yourself accordingly.
huge issue with many ex-inmates is that they are often idle and lost about
their next move. You need to have a plan and positive goals in mind. Focus on
either obtaining your general equivalency degree, taking some literacy courses,
learning, perfecting, or owning job/trade skills, becoming self-employed, or starting a business. If
you have an interest in continuing your education, then you should do it. Do your
research, get the proper knowledge and resources, and keep working at it. Also,
avoid people, places, and things that will lead you back to your old ways. Keep
busy and work on your short and long-term goals.
to jail or prison may be hard but getting out and living a normal life can be
harder. You must be focused and motivated on getting or doing better by
avoiding people, places, and things that can tempt you to risk losing your freedom or ending up (back) in jail or prison.
Don't be ashamed of asking for help from trusted and valid and legitimate
sources. Be committed and in no time, you can start living a normal, productive, and greater life again if you ever served jail or prison time.
