I was watching the news and viewed a man who had just been arrested for DWI.

The man had 12 prior arrests. Instead of putting these people in jail, a “rehab” institution would prove more helpful for that person.

This could free up jail space for more serious crimes.

Same should be considered for crimes such as rape, prostitution, domestic abuse, etc. These people need help.
