Annotation: This report presents a State-by-State catalog of legislation that pertains to intermediate sanctions (community-based sanctions, sentencing alternatives, and other alternatives to incarceration).
Abstract: Intermediate sanctions generally refer to a range of sanctions imposed on offenders subsequent to adjudication proceedings. Intermediate sanctions can be mandated by the courts as an alternative to incarceration; imposed by parole boards as a condition of parole, serving as a deterrent to further reincarceration; or administered by probation departments as an offender management tool, thus reducing further clogging of court and parole board dockets. The first section of the report presents a chart that shows the content of specific State legislation by topic. In addition to the topic, a list of State bill citations that pertain to the topic, and a summary of each legislation, the status of each piece of legislation is also shown. Supplementary narrative information addresses community corrections acts, sentencing guidelines, intermediate sanctions, boot camps, intensive supervision, drug testing, electronic monitoring, house arrest, community service programs, restitution, fines, day reporting centers, and supervision fees. The final section provides State-by-State descriptions of legislative bills, statutes, and acts that pertain to intermediate sanctions. Appended list of legislative contacts by State
