From the Document: "This report provides a comprehensive recidivism analysis of federal offenders who engaged in violent criminal conduct as part of their instant federal offense or during prior criminal activity. This study identified two groups of violent offenders: (1) 2,596 federal offenders who engaged in violent criminal conduct as part of their instant federal offense ('violent instant offenders'); and, (2) 7,408 offenders who were not categorized as violent offenders based on their instant federal offense, but who had been arrested for a violent offense in their past ('violent prior offenders'). Taken together, these 10,004 offenders (collectively, the 'violent offenders') are analyzed in comparison to 15,427 federal offenders who had not engaged in violent conduct during the instant federal offense and who were never arrested for a violent crime in their past ('non-violent offenders'). Both the violent and non-violent offenders were originally sentenced for their instant federal offense between fiscal year 1991 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2006. All of the offenders in this report were released from federal custody in calendar year 2005."
