Utah Sentencing Alternatives conducts risk assessments for the justice-involved to assist in the decision-making process.  We offer a strength-based approach that is unprecedented in most justice scenarios. It is accomplished by identifying evidence-based solutions and alternatives that are in the best interest of the community, the victim, and the defendant.  At Utah Sentencing Alternatives we believe:

  • we are in relationship with the people, places, and things with whom we share this planet and that life is a team sport: you don’t have to go it alone.
  • mistakes happen and when they do, it is how you choose to respond that matters most.
  • adversity is a learning opportunity and usually a sign that change is necessary.
  • change is possible,it is not easy, but it is possible to alter life’s trajectory.
