prisoner
Explanation:
I'm not completely sure of course, but it seems rather probable, that ristretti is short for "individui ristretti nella libertà".

Explanation:
or; of limited means

ristretto = limited/restricted
ristrettezza = poverty, straitened circumstances.

This is the general meaning, althouh there may be various meanings dependant in context. As your context is a list, I would be as generic as possible in the translation.
