Attorney General Bill Sorrell and others welcome public thoughts and ideas at this forum. “Vermont leaders and legislators have taken many steps during the past two decades, both through policy and legislation, to ease prison overcrowding and minimize the need to send Vermont prisoners out of state,” said Sorrell. “In particular, I would like to hear whether Vermonters are ready to ask the Legislature to commit to a statewide policy regarding sentencing and release decisions that reduces reliance on incarceration or lengthy incarceration in response to criminal conduct.”

Representatives from law enforcement, corrections and human services officials, prisoner rights groups, victim advocates, and others join the Attorney General at this forum.
