The Earn Your Way Out Act will change the entire culture of corrections by providing inmate reentry plans as soon as they enter prison and establishing administrative parole release for certain inmates on a merit basis.
S761 will provide inmates the support to have a successful reentry into
S761 turns incarceration into opportunity for people who feel that they have had no choice other than resorting to crime to survive. This system provides inmates a second chance at earning a life as a healthy law-abiding citizen. Earn Your Way Out will finally allow people to receive the help and services needed to keep them from falling into a life of crime. It will educate people on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and give them alternative ways to survive without crime.
Bill S761 was signed into law by Governor Murphy in January of 2020. The law becomes effective on
February 21, 2021.
