Default Upstate sheriff proposes new legislation to establish State Work Program

Upstate sheriff proposes new legislation to establish State Work Program within SC Dept. of Corrections

"The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office is proposing new legislation that would introduce an inmate work program to the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

The proposed legislation would allow an eligible inmate who is committed to the South Carolina Department of Corrections to participate in the work program given the following:

The inmate has been convicted of a nonviolent crime; and

The inmate is physically able to participate in the state work program.

Per the proposed legislation, the eligible inmate would be “ordered by the court to participate and serve not less than three years and not more than five in an incarceration facility and requires an inmate to work an eight hour day for five days a week maintaining state and county roads and property, mow grass and pick up littler along state and county roads, and repair pot holes along state and county roads.”

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
