Excon works for me. That changes over time if they stay an ex. ;)
After they are released from prison, I believe they are called Fox news contributors
Former convict or ex-convict.
I think some of us might refer to them as.... "serving time." Or a jailbird.
a criminal when he released from the jail after completion of his punishment, afterlife of a criminal what he is called!? how he should be perceived um.. let's say after release he joins the word and what would he say What I Am Now!??
Like I said above, some people will call that person a jailbird, but not to his/her face. Others when talking about them, would say he served time. I'm not aware of any set name for someone who has gotten out of jail.
I haven't heard the term jailbird for a good long time
I normally just state their action... so if they were a thief... or fraudster... or what ever they did.
Aren't they called felons?
That would only apply to someone who committed a felony.
"Criminal" only means someone has offended some official. Robin Hood was a criminal. George Washington was a criminal. Jesus of Nazareth was a criminal.
