Welcome : The blog

I intend for this blog to highlight some of the programs in the Boston area that seek to help criminal justice involved people avoid hard jail time and serve their sentences in untraditional ways. I’m particularly interested in the fact that more women are serving time for non-violent crimes; this often means they are taking the fall for their boyfriends’ or husbands’ drug crimes. Many could be given the chance to serve their sentences in places other than jail or prison—and with their babies, who undoubtedly suffer from jail- or prison-related separation. Such alternatives, however, appear to be few.
