Intermediate Sanctions in Corrections by Gail A. Cuputo is the first non-edited book devoted completely to intermediate sanctions systems and their individual programs. The field of corrections comprises three distinct areas of study: institutional corrections (jails and prisons), community corrections (probation and parole), and intermediate sanctions (community service, boot camps, intensive supervision programs, home confinement and electronic monitoring, halfway houses, day reporting, fines, and restitution).

I'm mostly interested in the intermediate sanctions for drug and sexual abuse charges. I think that our justice system is overburdened with crowded institutional corrections and community corrections.

The third area is the mandatory sentencing such as 3 strikes and you are out which may or may not concern sex or drugs.
