Sentencing reforms cut prison crowding but shift burden

from Argus Leader

Drug addicts, thieves and repeat drunken drivers don't go to prison in South Dakota anymore. Instead, they go to the county jail, then go on probation. Some go straight to treatment, spend time in drug or courts for driving under the influence, take daily sobriety tests or wear electronic monitoring bracelets. If they fail in those programs, they could get more jail time, and then more chances. Prison is a last resort, even for parolees who pick up new felony charges. more
