Prison Term Paper The cause for this paper is intended to give various reasoning on what sanctions are made and the reasons for implementing them. Whether the reasoning is beyond the opinions of viewers and legislature, as a criminologist I can give my professional opinion as well as my personal opinion on what is needed to be done to reduce the crimes of armed robbery. The definition of robbery would be for Robbery would consist of one or more persons forcefully taking valuables or personals without ones permission by over powering them. While conducting research have to make a professional judgment that will better the criminal justice system. Although this new bill maybe intended to pass criminologist and legislatures need to view the outlooks of this situation and view it from different standpoints in life.
Three Strikes revised Annqunette Williams March 18, 2013 I do support the proposed amendment to our Three Strikes Law, arguing that it will help protect the public from the small, hard core population of career criminals. I also think that it should be expanded the law has been the same for decades and, it hurt the people who are trying to change their life around but get caught in a bad situation. Proposition 184, the three strikes law, was imposed to sentence repeat criminals with harsher
I do not believe this bill should be made effective. Yes, this bill may be efficient. It may make the individuals convicted of armed robbery a person for society. They can take a better advantage of the programs offered to them, but I believe that the cons listed outweigh the pros. If the prison term were doubled, what would happen to the rest of the inmates?
Prison Term Policy Recommendation In the past decade many states have reviewed current laws governing prison term policy for individuals convicted of armed robbery. State and local legislators felt that a need to double the prison term would deter future crime from being perpetrated. Although many civic leaders throughout the criminal justice and penal system support the measure, is their sufficient and conclusive data to support such measure. According to "The Free Dictionary.com" (2012), Armed robbery is defined as, the taking of money or goods in the possession of another, from his or her person or immediate presence, by force or intimidation. The goal of the bill is to increase the prison term for those who commit an act of robbery while in the possession of a deadly weapon.
Should wealthy individuals be permitted to “buy” their way out of prison or bargain for a reduction in sentence? What if the individual, if allowed to remain out of custody, can continue to earn his legitimate income and therefore pay substantial restitution to the victims, but if placed in prison the victims will go uncompensated? I would rather pay a $30K fine as opposed to a year in prison because prison creates a criminal record that never goes away and in turn creates difficulty in obtaining employment, decent housing, and destroys many other opportunities. I think that in the long run that one year in prison will end up costing more than $30K in lost wages and such, so I would rather pay the fine. I think if a wealthy person has the means to pay restitution to help the family and at the same time this reduces or helps them avoid a sentence, I am ok with it.
Felony Voting Jonathan Vilcapoma California State University Fresno TOPIC: Felony Voting SPECIFIC PURPOSE: The purpose of this speech is to persuade others about that felony voting should be allowed. INTRODUCTION: Today ill be going over on why we should let felons vote. Felons have made mistakes in their life at a point where they might or might not regret. There punishment can be over a year sentence to jail, and losing their privilege to vote for mayor, president, or any sort of election. They are just like us, but for what they have done to become a felon must have been hard for them to make a choice like that.
The three strikes law was implemented in 1993, it was created to act as a strong deterrent as well as to identify and incarcerate habitual offenders by enforcing minimum sentence lengths. The advocates of the law propose that it keeps violent and serious criminals behind bars therefore reducing crime rate. Those opposed suggest it overfills our prisons with aging criminals that eventually hamstring our economy. Overall I believe the three strikes law does more good than harm, and Ill examine articles that go deeper into these matters. According to Eugene H. Methvin, a large portion of violent crime can be prevented with an effective strategy of identifying and incarcerating the individual, keeping him/her off the streets; saving society much
University of Phoenix Prison Term Policy Recommendation Criminology I am a criminologist advisor I was appointed by the members of the state legislature to work on implementing a new bill on doubling a maximum sentence for someone who may be convicted of armed robbery. As the hire criminologist advisor, I was chosen to present to the state legislature with a prison term policy on armed robbery. The state legislature will determine if to change to a new bill. This new bill will determine if the new prison term policy should have any effect on anyone convicted of armed robbery crime to be given a double maximum sentence. I will research and make a proposal if I am certain a new bill in place will do any justice.
Looking for new ways to save money in the midst of persistent societal needs like privatization of intuitions. This also has prompting many state and federal bureaucrats to reconsider how they punish their criminals. Forcing them to look for creative ways to trim down the heavy burden that stringent sentencing laws and an excess increase in incarceration that has lead to increased taxes on taxpayers. Unfortunately, officials like to tout that crime rate falls because tough sentences are given; even when demography or other factors may point to another reason, they feel the tough sentences are demanded by the local citizens to solve the problem. Prison is an excellent way to keep dangerous criminals off the streets, but the more people you lock up, the less dangerous each extra prisoner is likely to be.
Not in all situations because the body mikes could be detected and then your cover would be blown. It would work for long-term case but not for a deep undercover job. Should undercover officers be allowed to break minor laws to obtain the confidence of the targets? Yes, how crazy this might sound but this is for them to get a case going and catch the criminals. If you want to catch them you must play by their rules considering drugs, alcohol, money etc… It’s all part of the game and your job.
