Legacy The Prison Reforme had a long lasting impact. It created prisons that were safer for the inmates and gave them better treatment. It gave families with a cild with mental ilness a place that would care for their child. And the biggest impact of all was that it sepereated people of diferent ages and of different crimes.

This reforme had a masive impact. It seperated childeren and adults in jail, it gave a free place for the mentaly disabled to go, and it created a seperet system for debtors so they didn't go straight to jail. It over all improved the quality of life for people in jail and for the people who have family in jail.
