Assignment 2: Intermediate Sanctions
Intermediate sanctions are a community-based sentence that provides more freedom than prison but less freedom than traditional probation and parole. There are both residential programs—those in which offenders must live away from home and inside a facility within the community while completing their sentence—and non-residential programs—those in which the offender resides at home while participating in the program under a strict set of rules and curfews.
