Answer both of the questions below about different types of community sentences discussed in Chapter 12. For maximum points, be sure to:
mention the text as your source in each response (something like — “As our text explains in Chapter 12, probation …………”
provide page numbers following parts of your answer where you have summarized text information (so everyone knows that this is not common knowledge, but is actually from the text)
summarize (in your own words) enough pertinent text information that your reader becomes well informed and knowledgeable about the issue you are writing about
use quotes, with page numbers when needed (when using a phrase or more –even of a few words–from any source–usually our text)
John is a criminal justice student and has not read anything in the text. However,that does not stop him from being very opinionated about many topics. When discussing Community Corrections in class, John states that probation is “worthless and a waste of time” and has “nothing to offer” as a criminal justice sanction (sentence). John also thinks that aside from the specific sentence of probation, other community based sentences also have “nothing to offer’ as sentencing options.
Answer both of the questions below about various community based sentences that are discussed in Chapter 12. .
1. Using information from this chapter, explain to John, what the specific sentence of ‘probation’ (starts on page 471) has to offer as a sentencing option (including to offenders, the public and the justice system itself ). Briefly mention at least 6 items (one sentence for each item is OK) that point out the ‘positives’ in using probation as a community corrections sanction (mentioning the text and including page numbers for each item).
Direct your answer to John and using the text, politely point out how he is wrong!
Also, beginning on page 486 our text begins discussing various Intermediate Sanctions (punishments that are ‘in-between’ regular probation and incarceration). On page 482, the author lists a number of advantages of the intermediate sanctions and describes tells us about about these punishments that are available to the courts as a sentencing option. For instance, as mentioned on pages 482 and 483, as a group, they can save money, offer a ‘fair’ sentencing option, provide more supervision to offenders than probation, provide a suitable option other than prison, and can be used with various groups of offenders (such as options for probation and parole violators and high risk offenders).
2. Select one of the intermediate sanctions described in this section of the chapter (from pages 483-489) that you think has the most to offer as a sentencing option and list at least 5 important pieces of information about the specifics of this intermediate punishment (mention text/page numbers) that led you to select this one.
