John Heinz III College at Carnegie Mellon University, has co-authored an article, "Does the Time Cause the Crime? An Examination of the Relationship Between Time Served and Reoffending in the Netherlands," which appears in the November 2011 issue of Criminology: An Interdisciplinary Journal, a publication of the American Society of Criminology. The article, which uses a sample of Dutch offenders serving an average of 6.7 months confinement to examine the relationship between time served in prison and future criminality, appears online.
