It's about time a judge does his job rather than releasing a dangerous offender back into the public.

I hope other judges use this as an example.

Thanks Judge Gregory Koturbash, we appreciate what you have done.

Right on.. that judge needs a pat on the back for finally sending that bad actor women to jail... sounds like he said she has NO respect for the law.. and thank goodness no one was killed in her wild stolen vehicle chases....
I hope the judge reads these posting and smiles... for a good days work... well done...!!

Judge Gregory Koturbash we need more like you & just maybe it will help restore my belief in our justice system.

If part of her reasoning that she did all this crime was from drug addiction could the judge have not imposed some kind of rehabilitation program to her which seems to be the main problem for her crimes.

I am all for that,
3 choices,
Red Pill
Green Pill
Or take nothing, and ask for help if and when you are actually ready.

Only one of the choices guarantees you a safe choice.
Which is the same decision they make every time they choose to take street drugs.

Common sense would say yes, sentencing rules say no.
Need to lobby politicians to allow judges to impose some form of rehab or treatment

Court ordered rehab is available to judges. I think the problem is that there are not enough rehab spaces available to send them to.
Perhaps instead of building subsidized "wet" housing for them, we should be building more "dry" rehab housing.

Oh come now, that would infringe on their rights and entitlements, we can't have that.

Rehab doesn't do anything unless the person is actually ready to change.
So a judge ordering someone who isn't ready to change to rehab is a waste of resources for those who are ready.

I saw this lady walking down the street. She spotted a bike on the back of an SUV. She said to her friend," I want a bike just like that!" It was a nice black on black hardtail. Then she says, "It's not even locked!" Next she attempted to remove the bike form the rack only to realize that it was in fact locked up. Before walking on, she spits on the back window of the SUV.

Call it Jail call it rehab, call it assisted living. I don't really care. Criminals need to be held accountable. They need care, they need shelter and nourishment. They need love and direction. If they aren't fit for release don't let them go. Simple.

Wow....a low-life who was not carrying their normal tools in a backpack (bolt cutters).

Court ordered rehab has a dismal success rate. If the addict/user in not engaged in their own recovery then in their mind court ordered rehab is nothing more than "easy time", and it's business as usual after the so-called sentence is complete.

Can't disagree with that. Also why the only solution I see to this drug problem is to cut the head off of the supply chain snake(s).
Make selling any illegal drug a serious and rapidly escalating penalty. When street level dealers face two yr min and then 5 yr min on second conviction, and 15 on third conviction........the supply is gone cuz the big bosses importing this chit are smart enough to stay removed from physical product. Eliminate the retail level and the franchise is dead.
Gladly pay for more jail cells in lieu of rehab rooms. Might even be cheaper and with a lower recidivism rate.

Seems to me judge is sending a strong message to the proscecuter. Doesn't look good when judge makes the proscecuter look soft.
