what is the four philosophical reasons for sentencing criminals?
The Effects of Punishment and Sentencing There are four main philosophical reasons surrounding the purpose of sentencing. 1. [ Retribution is the philosophy that a criminal's punishment shall be determined on the severity of the crime he or she has committed. Retribution has been noted that it is in-deed not the same as revenge and the overall punishment does not in-fact satisfy any of the
people or person who were the victim. The retribution philosophy also goes by the Old Testament states "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." 2. Deterrence philosophy has two parts to it, the general and specific deterrence. The Deterrence philosophy basis its effectiveness that a criminal will realize the punishment outweighs the crime that he or she is going to be commit and in return prevents the criminal from going through with the act. The general deterrence basis its theory on, by punishing one person for a particular criminal offence, it will deter others from committing similar crimes. The specific deterrence basis its theory that a criminal, once punished and released, will be less likely to commit a crime due to the fact he or she will not want to receive another punishment. 3. The Incapacitation philosophy believes by incarnating criminals, which is to place them in prison, will effectively keep the criminal from committing further crimes among society and reduce further criminal opportunity. 4. Rehabilitation is another means of trying to teach a person not to commit further criminal acts. This philosophy believes that the public is better served when a criminal is given certain resources that will help do away with any and all criminal behavior one may have. ]

what is considered to be a court room work group?
Weegy: In the United States criminal justice system, a Courtroom Workgroup is an informal arrangement between a criminal prosecutor, criminal defense attorney, and the judicial officer. [ This foundational concept in the academic discipline of criminal justice, recharacterizes the seemingly adversarial courtroom participants as collaborators in "doing justice." The courtroom workgroup was proposed by Eisenstein and Jacob in 1977 to explain their observations of the ways courts, especially lower level courts, actually come to decisions. source wikipedia ] (More)

how does the court room work group interact on a daily basic?
Weegy: The concept of a courtroom workgroup is associated with plea bargaining. The courtroom workgroup shows remarkable explanatory power in overburdened courts dealing with large caseloads. [ The courtroom workgroup model is best suited to explain jurisdictions where defense attorneys are more or less permanently assigned, but even occasionally appointed lawyers can participate in these practices. While many of the higher level prosecutions still follow the adversarial model, there is evidence that lower-level proceedings follow the courtroom workgroup model. Boland, Brady, Tyson, & Bassler (1983) indicate that approximately 90 percent of criminal cases are settled by plea bargain. This figure appears to be stable over the last twenty years (Rainville & Reaves, 2003). Some collaborative efforts on the part of the courtroom workgroup simply must be present to facilitate this high percentage of pleas. ] (More)

Shifa, capital punishment and death sentence are the same thing. I do not know what you mean by transportation)
Added 7/16/2011 5:41:09 PM
I found the first four from an article, death sentence was my mistake. I found "transportation" in another article where they were referring to sending the person to a far place away from home but that was used before 18th century. Your answer certainly is perfect. Thanks.
