If the state wants to save money it should consider letting some people go. Through the use of manipulation U.D.C. has been able to hold "PEOPLE" on parole for decades after their sentence is done. Should UT, citizens fork the bill to incarcerate someone for 20 years after they have served their time because the individual has a bad mouth? Or continues to commit petty violations, most of the violations are not even a violation of the law? Yet the department will continue to use these people to suck money out of the Citizens of Utah. Sad thing is is that through scare tactics the are very secessful at extorting money out of you.

Thanks for your comment heather, and what you said is true. It just makes me sick to see the cuts the state is making in education, and health benifits for people in need. and when the prisons budget is cut, they turn to the resources that are there to help offenders suceed, such as drug treatment and cognitive skills classes. Yet they continue hold people who have served their time? I cant imagin the cost of this.

Lol the state of Utah will not release prisoners. and to all who needs to know,in 2004 the Utah state prison was gave several thousands of dollars if not millions to offer inmates counseling,therapy,help, and more housing units to expand the Utah state prison. No the prison officials didn't offer that to the inmates, the inmates never saw the benifits. the prison went out and bought new perimeter vehicles, 2004 dodges, several new transportation cars, mostly nice luxurious impalas, or crown victorias. and started to promote their officers. one officer i new was promoted from peon to Lt. in a matter of weeks. why? cuz he had other family working there. utah needs funding but they need someone else to decide how the funds will be spent.

It was just recently that the u.s.p has had to start sorting through all the peddy offenders and start releaseing do to the budget cuts but now we have to worry about all the sex offenders that might be released cause we all know that they will probably be the first to get time cuts

Been 2 years sense I blogged on this site. I think all the comments are great!!! The system is sick. My friend was on parole. Messed up, relapsed and they found a meth pipe when they searched him. Yes he did something BAD and wrong. Yes there should be a punishment. The Utah state board of pardons has given him a 5 year rehearing for it. No shit, over 5 years of incarceration that Utah tax payers are paying for!!!! For a meth pipe! After he gets out his parole starts over again. Hopefully he can be a perfect person. His original incarceration was in the 80's. Because the can they have violated him over and over and over. There are so many people in the system that just can't get out. They make money on keeping them. Yeah Russia. But I think even there after you do so much time you can get your sentence expired.
