  • Sex crimes & burglaries should be excluded from a work release program.

    Sex crime therapy, is a long term process, that can not be achieved, while still an inmate.

  • What parole hearing in October? Why waste time and money for the hearing? He forfeited his rights to a parole for having violating his furlough and capture!!!!!

  • I can’t believe we still allow this work furlough program to exist. How much money are we wasting having to re-capture these ungrateful people who we then have to support for a longer period of time to be in jail. And while we are at it, turn off their A/C and give it to the schools. I’d rather innocent children get A/C first before giving it to prisoners.
