Average prison sentences are getting even longer

The average amount of time inmates spend in prison has increased significantly, according to a recent study by Washington, D.C., think tank, Urban Institute. The study found the average amount of time served behind bars had risen by about 5 years from 2000 to 2014. Researchers also discovered that black men, in particular, were the majority of the population of inmates serving the longest sentences.
