This is a great move by both of our judges. Creative and necessary decisions. Let's support these judges.

I would rather these judges actually do their job and sentence criminals to the time they deserve instead of being soft apologists for them. I'm tired of this "they just don't know any better" and "they seemed remorseful" crap. Do the crime...do the time.

Criminals need to do the time for their crimes. What about the victums of the criminals? Their lives are ruined, they are the ones who need help.

I have never seen a county judicial system that panders to the criminals more that Washington County.

I would rather pay higher taxes to have them locked up instead of roaming the streets. Look at most of these stories. They are not 1 and done criminals. They are multiple repeat offenders and they never get more than a slap on the wrist.

Sorry but this works. I went through these classes and am a changed man. Clean for 3.5 years and just recently graduated from college. It won't work for everyone but it might work for some. Judges are bound by the laws enacted by the State of Ohio, these laws try to lessen the population in the prison system. This can work.

This may work for a few but the Richards guy (and those like him) whos been arrested 4 times for her ion in the past 5 months should not even be eligible for this program. We'll have to wait and see who they pick and choose for this program but I'd bet it's going to be laughable, most decisions from the courts have been lately.

Lining up a firing squad also eliminates repeat offenders too!

Lots of room for thought on this one. I cannot figure why taxpayers should have to fund everything under the sun for criminals.
