Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 01 May 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


How many individuals have reoffended and served a further sentence in La Moye Prison over the past 10 years?

Can you also break this down by year and by nature of the crime?

Please also tell me the number of additional prison sentences for people who have reoffended and been sentenced again, for example people who have reoffended once, two times, five times, 10 times, and so on?


In responding to this request it is emphasized that the data given is not the reoffending statistics for the Island of Jersey. The data given has been taken from Prison records and based on the number of entries during that year.

Due to the amount of research required, the States of Jersey Prison Service is unable to provide data for the past 10 years in the time scale allowed by the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014. However, we have been able to provide data from 2014 to present date.

Entries for 2020

Entries for 2019

Entries for 2018

Entries for 2017

Entries for 2016

Entries for 2015

Entries for 2014 

Notes of Data Provided:

Number of Entries – The same individual may be counted more than once. Previous entries will not necessarily be for the same offence.

Offences – Based on the main offence, prisoner may be in custody for a number of offences.

Data is based on number of previous entries at HMP La Moye. Any custodian time in other Prisons have not be included.

In explanation to the data showing the higher number of previous entries this will equate to a small number of individuals that commit offences that are given short sentences but will continue to re-offend. The data takes in all previous entries from their first entry to HMP La Moye some going back to the 1980s.

Article applied

Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive

(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.

Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
