New Sentencing Options Manual
Field Services Unit has published a new online Manual.
The Sentencing Options Manual for the State of Vermont's Department of Corrections is a new manual designed to help our partners in the Criminal Justice community and our larger Vermont community to understand the different sentencing options in Vermont.
This manual covers issues in sentencing and tries to lay out how sentencing integrates with our mission, and statutory authority and how we connect those parts with our vision of restorative justice and restorative practices. It covers both Incarceration and community sentences and some of the programs used as part of risk management.
