New And Prompting Justice Models

In a 3-5 page paper

 

The justice model is a sentencing approach that uses determinate sentences, or fixed punishment terms; calls for the elimination of parole; and makes treatment voluntary. The justice model views crime reduction and successful incarceration as possible only if all offenders serve the same sentence for the same crime. This model posits that crime will continue or decrease to the extent that all offenders are treated the same.

In this assignment, you will prepare a written critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the justice sentencing model.
