Community Sentence

Non-Custodial Sentence

Jeffery K. Rubenstein is well known and respected by Federal and California prosecutors and judges for his creative approaches to alternative sentencing. Also known as “Community Sentencing.” There are many ways courts can punish you if you are convicted, other than serving jail or prison time. An alternative sentence can benefit you, your family, your community and society. You may be able to go back to a normal life. Return to your home, go back to work, minimize the social costs of imprisonment and reduce your risk of recidivism. The latter is the “revolving door” syndrome that leads people to become a career criminals. Juveniles are particularly at risk.
