After the Unger ruling in 2012, nearly 200 older adults who had been convicted of violent crimes were released from Maryland prisons. The Ungers, as they have come to be known, had served more than 30 years in prison and, upon release, received reentry wrap-around supports. Less than 3% have recidivated. Here is what we can learn from the Ungers.

Thank you to the Ungers who shared their stories and to the Justice Police Institute team for their assistance and support.
Thank you also to the young people at Wide Angle Youth Media for creating this film.
Funding for this film was provided by the Abell Foundation.
