Money is spent on the rehabilitation of all inmates and time, but it will affect both the prison and the public in ways we cannot count, like the inmate receives the information and if he or she used it that is good, but if the inmates just brush it aside and go back to the ways of the old habits the money is wasted and cannot make up the money spent on the inmates. The state would ask for more money and because of the increase to of inmates coming in to the jail system, and rising coat to rehabilitate each one. Recommendations would be that most of the inmates that received counseling came back to jail should pay back the state for the monies used try to and rehabilitate the person so as to make it clear that this is what will happen if he or she fails then most of the inmates will think twice before coming back to jail. Parole for an inmate has exhibits a change and that he or she has been good during his or her stay in jail. After a certain amount of time has been served the inmate can come up for parole and if the board believes that he or she has made a change then they could make parole and be release early but if he or she does something bad, they will go back to jail and Finnish out their
The prosecution, the judge and the defendant all benefit when defense counsel performs in the way the Constitution envisions. The broken public defense system in our State doesn't have to be like this. It can and must be fixed. As a result of these deficiencies, many individuals facing criminal charges are compelled to appear in court without a lawyer at critical junctures, such as when bail decisions are made. This often results in unnecessary or excessive bail being set and keeps people who cannot afford it in jail awaiting trial Many public defense lawyers also fail to: meet or consult with clients at critical stages in their cases; investigate the charges against their clients or hire experts who can assist with case preparation or testify at trial; file necessary pre-trial motions; and provide meaningful consultation before clients accept plea bargains, regardless of whether a charge is appropriate or a viable defense exists.
What does prison overcrowding cause? And can it be stopped? Prison overcrowding is caused by a variety of issues, such as not enough room in prisons, fluctuating crime rates, changes to laws and improvements to law enforcement tactics. So first the obsessive view from some lawmakers that the only way to reduce crime is to keep offenders off the streets no matter what the crime. In other words don’t worry about rehabilitation just keep the offenders in jail for the rest of their lives and pay the cost of housing, boarding, and punishing them.
Argument Essay: That we should use prison labor for public works; Affirmative team We should use prison labor for public works because it’s an additional punishment, it can also be an industry. Because of this it will help prisoners seek jobs with their skills and start a new life. In a way it’s a way that can re-educate prisoners; Prison labor assists prisoners in acquiring vocational skills and work ethic so that they can have post release employment. In a prison family, such as a criminal record of a family, a member of the family could break the circle so they wouldn’t be prisoners their whole life. Like what Xavier said in his argument, the government would wasting money on the prisoners, I believe that’s true the government is helping giving the prisoners a second chance and to be educated.
This has been the focus of much of the incapacitation discussion because of the large impact associated with policies that increase the need for building, operating and maintaining the prisons necessary for incapacitation. On the other hand, with the exception of some drug treatment analyses, there are fewer discussions and less research examining the costs and benefits of rehabilitation. Yet, such analysis is important. A high quality, intensive treatment program for offenders can be relatively costly. The advantages of the program must be weighed against the costs.
If we focus on these we can keep the convicts from relapse into their old ways, and truly be successful in community programs and rehabilitation. Restriction are important when you at probation and the community program. Restriction is need to reinforce the idea that their current freedom is a privilege, and at any given time when they make the decision to do the wrong thing it can be taken away. So
Consequently, the number of these cases eligible for restorative justice interventions is also limited. For those few victims with identified offenders who acknowledge some responsibility for the harms they have caused, restorative justice may present a far more appealing option than the traditional criminal justice system. Unfortunately, however, only a small percentage of crime victims have that
Housing Issues and its Effect on Prisoner Reentry Erika Kemp Temple University In 2002, there were approximately 1,600 inmates a day being released back into society through parole or completion of sentence (Petersilia, 2003). Correctional facilities have to have a plan to transition inmates back into society. Prisoner reentry is defined by Joan Petersilia in When Prisoners Come Home (2003) as, “all activities and programming conducted to prepare ex-convicts to return safely to the community and to live as law-abiding citizens. Prisoners reentering society today are more likely to have issues such as, previous failed attempts at parole, failed or lack of participation in prison programs designed to make transition easier, and to have served longer sentences, which affects the relationship to families and other legitimate groups in society. The number of prisoners released each year has increased over the years, but their growth rates are declining (Lynch & Sabol, 2001).
Everyone deserves a second chance, and if someone or themselves are willing to pay the bail, they will probably appreciate it and start changing their actions (giving back to community or society with a regretting mind). There is a human rights law that declares “We all live free and equal.” Everyone, even criminals fit in that category and they deserve to live a balanced life, but as a punishment, they are not living a free life. If the prisoner has committed a terrible crime, police could still monitor him/her by putting them under house arrest. That way, they will not be allowed to depart their home but they can still live a customary life. Furthermore, life is too short, and many agonizing years should not be spent in prison, especially after their lesson is comprehended.
From 1992 to January 1, 2001, the number of inmates age 50 and older jumped from 41, 586 to 113,358 (Camp & Camp, 1992 – 2001). The aging inmate population in the United States’ federal and state prisons is creating a heavy burden on government resources and budgets. This paper examines the burden created by such a population and the reasons causing a growth in elderly inmate populations. Also, this paper offers possible solutions, including creating geriatric prisons, early release for elderly inmates, and a restructuring of mandatory minimum sentences. The Alabama Department of Corrections defines a
