Milwaukee Co. DA Wants More Sentencing Options for Judges


MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm says he'd like to see judges have more options in sentencing.

Chisholm is proposing major changes to the Wisconsin criminal justice system. He says his ideas would ease the burden on prisons while shifting the money to programs which slow recidivism.

Chisholm says counties could be reimbursed $15,000 for every offender they don't commit to prison. Since it costs $30,000 to hold a person in prison for a year, that would be a net gain for the state.

The money coming to the counties could be used for programs proved to reduce the rates of re-offending.
