What Happens After a Defendant is Sentenced

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 | 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Program Materials: Judges must login to download program materials or contact us to request a copy by email.
 

This evening educational program will provide judges with an in-depth view of what happens in correctional facilities when someone serves a sentence, including intake, assessment, classification, programs, discipline, parole supervision, as well as the preparation of an inmate for re-entry.

Participants will also gain some perspective on how the court can help inform the classification and parole processes. There will be a brief discussion of topics related to sentencing and the new criminal justice legislation.

Attend and Learn:

  • What a sentence means and how it affects classification
  • How the DOC and the county Houses of Corrections work
  • How courts can help inform the parole and classification processes
  • What judges need to know about parole
  • Opportunities for treatment
  • Alternative sentencing
  • Current information about the Office of Community Corrections (OCC)

This program is intended to be useful for newer judges, but will also serve as an opportunity for experienced judges to learn valuable information about how the criminal justice system functions post-sentencing.
