What is sentencing? How does sentencing influence corrections? How can corrections professionals improve sentencing so that it improves the correctional system overall?
In law, a sentence forms the final explicit act of a judge-ruled process, and also the symbolic principal act connected to his function. [ The sentence can generally involve a decree of imprisonment, a fine and/or other punishments against a defendant convicted of a crime. Those imprisoned for multiple crimes, will serve a consecutive sentence (in which the period of imprisonment equals the sum
of all the sentences), a concurrent sentence (in which the period of imprisonment equals the length of the longest sentence), or somewhere in between, sometimes subject to a cap. If a sentence gets reduced to a less harsh punishment, then the sentence is said to have been "mitigated". Rarely (depending on circumstances) murder charges are "mitigated" and reduced to manslaughter charges. However, in certain legal systems, a defendant may be punished beyond the terms of the sentence, e.g. social stigma, loss of governmental benefits, or, collectively, the collateral consequences of criminal charges. ]

I think that it really depends on the crime, if the juvenile has committed murder or rape then yes the crime and the information of the juvenile should be on the news. I think in some case the juvenile may think its cool and they want to see them self's on the news and in the papers. But when it comes to them committing murder or rape I think that the public should know what they did and who they are so that they can be on the look out for them, because I know that I wouldn't want my child to ...
Weegy: I can definitely see what you are saying. [ If there were a way to specify when a juvenile's court proceedings and crimes were made public, I would tend to agree that any who have committed rape or murder should be treated as an adult and such, as I feel it is doing the community a disservice by not making them aware of the crimes and who committed them. For more minor crimes however, I feel the juvenile should be protected entirely. ] (More)

How would you define the role of a warden? How does the warden’s role affect the correctional system? What might happen if the warden’s role did not exist within the correctional system?
Weegy: A prison officer , also referred to as a corrections officer, correctional officer , or detention officer (US), is a person charged with the responsibility of the supervision, safety and security of prisoners in a prison, jail, [ or similar form of secure custody. Historically, terms such as jailer (also spelled jailor or gaoler), jail guard, prison guard, prison warder, and turnkey have also been used. Prison officers are responsible for the care, custody, and control of individuals who have been arrested and are awaiting trial while on remand or who have been convicted of a crime and sentenced to serve time in a prison or jail. They are also responsible for the safety and security of the facility itself. Most officers are employed by the government of the jurisdiction in which they operate, though some are employed by private companies. ] (More)
