Sentence to Service saves county money, jail time

Email

Hubbard County's Sentence to Service program looks like it will become a victim of state budget woes.

Cuts to many state programs mean lawmakers will no longer fund community service programs for inmates after 2010, which could mean $23,800 locally.

But Hubbard County's program, with an annual budget of $140,000, may still survive financially, thanks to township and public contributions for the popular services it offers.
