CPSS/400 v3 Client Background James is a 24 year-old black male being considered for release back into the community. James will be living with his 53-year mother and 20 old brother and will seek to secure employment upon release. James has previously been on supervision and was non-complaint in virtually every area of his supervision. He used marijuana routinely and had no desire to stop. Also, he failed meet curfew checks on a nightly basis. During this previous supervision he broke into several vehicles. James is being considered for release after serving 11 months for violating the conditions of his previous community supervision. James’s scores low risk in most areas of risk and need assessment. He scores moderate risk for substance abuse and mental health needs. Therefore, according to the risk and needs assessment he is a low-risk offender and should be granted release from prison and return to the community. Community supervision manager Jones does not agree with the recommendation to release James back into the community. Mr. Jones has a previous history of supervising James and feels as though James is not ready to reenter the community. Lastly, reports from staff within the institution were favorable for James to released and he has not had any behavior issues. Copyright 2022 by University of Phoenix. All rights reserved.
