Criminal Justice Reform

 

Dr Furey opposes managing mental illness and substance use with incarceration, and wants those offenders that are incarcerated to have access to rehabilitation through work to support their loved ones. Barriers that prevent offenders being paid reasonable wages and prevent industry from working with corrections should be removed. Dr. Furey supports a review of sentencing laws and guidelines to allow people to continue to work. Non-violent crimes sentences should reflect that it was non-violent crime and violent crimes should be the target of the prison system.
