Policy Statements on Criminal Justice

It is time Vermont brought its prisoners home. Farming them out to for-profit facilities in distant states is wrong. It endangers our state prisoners by potentially putting them in the middle of unfamiliar gang conflicts. And it separates them from family members and other sources of support in Vermont, which makes their post-release re-integration and recovery that much harder.

Two Vermonters have died recently in Pennsylvania jails after receiving inadequate and inhumane medical care.

This must stop. If I am elected to the state senate I will push hard to bring them home.
