NEW YORK (AP) — A new report says increasing numbers of prison inmates nationwide are serving their full sentences and then going free without any supervision by parole or probation officers.

The report released by the Pew Charitable Trusts says these inmates aren't getting the help they need to lead crime-free lives.

The report says Florida, Maine and Massachusetts are three states where more than 40 percent of released inmates didn't get supervision in 2012.
