Periodic Imprisonment is an alternative sentencing program allowing county-sentenced offenders the ability to remain gainfully employed while serving a sentence imposed by the courts. The program is designed for non-violent offenders demonstrating an ability to function within society while remaining under supervision of corrections staff.
