He has long been an advocate of taking a systems approach to the issues of criminal and social justice, focusing on collaborative and community oriented approaches to problem solving.
has collaborated on the creation and implementation of various therapeutic
justice programs including Mental Health Court, Veterans Court, Salt Lake City
Domestic Violence Court, Misdemeanor Drug Court and the Salt Lake Area Family
Justice Center. These alternatives seek to transition those offenders out
of the criminal justice system who can most benefit from other programs—giving
them a much greater chance to not re-offend.
recently Sim has been part of a collaborative effort to address the homeless
population and drug trafficking in the Rio Grande area. This has been done by
holding the criminals accountable and seeking treatment before jail for those
who need it.
Sim graduated from the University of Utah with a B.A. degree in History and Philosophy. He received his J. D. degree and certificate of specialization in Environmental and Natural Resources Law from Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
