Alternative Sentencing Programs

Conversation with Mike Lloyd, Indiana Department of Corrections

 

Recently, Mike Lloyd, Director of Transitional Facilities and Community Based Programs for the Indiana Department of Corrections had a conversation with interviewer Marylin Day. The discussion centered around alternative sentencing programs and the future of this type of correctional programming.

 

Marylin: “You have had a number of years working within the correctional field.  How do you feel about alternative sentencing programs like Craine House and what do you see in the future for this kind of correctional programming?”

 

Mike: ”There are some bad people that truly belong in prison; but there is a large number of people that did not intentionally do wrong or just plain made bad choices.  I believe we should ‘sanction’ this group, not imprison them.  Leaving these individuals in the community seeks to keep families together, taxes paid, and offer opportunities for additional programming.”

“The future is pointing to utilizing the alternative sentencing idea more; especially for low risk offenders.”
