### HideShow timer Statistics

Approximately 5,000 people who have been convicted of nonviolent crimes in the state have been given community-service sentences instead of prison sentences. These offenders perform services cmmensurate with their training and skills from scrubbing floors to conducting research for the state. The community-service program, which began in 1979, has grown immensely as a result of drunken-driver legislation enacted a few months ago.
The introduction of the community-service program in 1979 was most probably prompted by which of the following, all of which occurred during the 1970's?

A. A decrease in the number of violent crimes in the state
B. An increase in the number of crimes committed by employees of the state
C. A gradual decrease in the median age of judges in the state
D. The overcrowding of the prisons in the state
E. The passage of drunken-driver legislation in other states

Prisons became overcrowded. Lawmakers devised plan to punish nonviolent criminals without putting them in jail. Thus was born the community-service program
