Assignment 2: Alternatives to Incarceration

Due Week 10 and worth 120 points

A
recent study illustrates that nearly two (2) million juveniles are
processed through juvenile courts across the United States each year.
Depending on the nature of the crime, juveniles may face detention or
incarceration if they are convicted. Given the fact that many courts are
reluctant to incarcerate criminal offenders, judges often consider
alternatives to incarceration. The driving force behind these
alternatives is to save taxpayer money yet still demand offender
accountability and impose sanctions for criminal behavior.

Use
the Internet or Strayer databases to research the use of sanctions other
than incarceration or detention for juvenile offenders.

Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:

  1. Examine
    the underlying historical and economic reasons behind the quest for
    alternatives to incarcerating offenders in jails and prisons.
  2. Describe
    three (3) alternatives to incarceration that juvenile courts currently
    use. Provide examples of such alternatives in practice to support the
    response.
  3. Discuss the significant societal and individual
    benefits of imposing sanctions or punishments that do not involve
    removing an offender from his / her family or community.
  4. Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be
    typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with
    one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA
    or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional
    instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the
    assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title,
    and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in
    the required assignment page length.

The specific learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Explain how delinquents have been handled throughout history.
