Effects Of A Custodial Sentence On Women

- Not only is prison ineffective in preventing reoffending in women and is expensive, it can be extremely damaging to the female’s well-being and their families. The effect that a custodial sentence has on women is arguably far worse than for men. Women are often not prepared or equipped for their life following their prison sentence; due to the fact that women are more likely to be lone parents before prison (Social Exclusion Unit, 2002), are more likely to leave prison homeless and unemployed (Wedderburn, 2000), and are more likely to lose access of their children whilst serving their sentence (Corston, 2007)....   [tags: Prison, Crime, Punishment, Sentence]

Improvements to the Justice System in Native American Reservations

- The justice system of a society is the reflection of a society’s values and a flawed system is indicative of an unsafe society, a result that can be seen in Native American reservations (Identification of Controversy) (Lead). The justice system in Native American reservations should be improved by increasing the number of prosecuted crimes, increasing the severity of prison sentences by tribal courts, and by promoting the Violence Against Women Act (Thesis). The Justice Department declines too many serious crime cases, such as sexual abuse cases, to improve the statistics of crime in Native American Reservations (Topic Sentence)....   [tags: crime, prosecute, sentence]

Analysis : ' The Sat '

- Specific Comments: Pg1, P1, L4 - Because “The SAT” alone is a fragmented sentence, I would consider that you link it with the sentence before it so that it reads “tradition: the SAT”. This would both be grammatically correct and maintain the flow of the piece. Pg1, P1, L4-6 - In my opinion, I feel as though this sentences read a bit awkwardly and would benefit from some slight restructuring. It seemed a little confusing to what the “intelligence” was referring to, and clarification seems necessary for the reader....   [tags: Grammar, Word, Phrase, Sentence]

A Look at the Conflicts of the Juvinile Court System in “No Matter How Loud I Shout” by Edward Humes

- ... The adult court transfers are not the most effective way to reduce more juvenile crimes, although for extreme delinquents I think it is the best way to sentence them. The transfers do not do anything to prevent more crime; they just reduce some of the workload of the overloaded juvenile system. Ronald Duncan is one prime example of the failings of the juvenile court. It is the one case written about in the book, that the juvenile system has virtually no chance of saving the juvenile from further crime....   [tags: sentence, rehabilitation, remorse]

Analysis Of Stephen Crane 's ' Clockwork Angel '

The laws and guidelines that are used to determine an offender 's sentence are greatly flawed. Some crimes are much more severe than others; therefore using the same rules and regulations for all crimes as if they are all the same is unfitting.
