Are there incentives and sanctions during participation in CASA?

Posted by on June 9, 2017 in CASA

Yes!  Although the most obvious incentive is a dismissal or a sentence of probation rather than prison, program participants are also provided with incentives in the form of gift cards and limited Second Chance Act support for school or work-related expenses when available.

Depending on the nature of the program violation, sanctions may range from a verbal reprimand from the court and team, additional assignments and requirements, a short term of “flash incarceration”, or the involuntary termination from CASA and the imposition of sentence as may be contemplated by the CASA plea agreement.
