Question and answer
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 it's 50/50 on that seeing how some people are nosey and want to know everyone busyness, but at the same time I know that I would want to know mainly to protect my self and family. I really don't think that juveniles should have rights if they commit a capital crime like murder. Taking someone's life is not like taking a CD from a store and I feel that most teen's know what murder is so there is no reason them to think they can kill someone and get away with it. I also think that kids ...
Weegy: I think officials are thinking that juvenile delinquents should be given a chance to change themselves. [ Nobody is born a delinquent it just happens that they werent so lucky with the people and the environment that they grew up on but I still think that you have a point, considering that they are still the one's who made their choices in life. Is there anything that you would like to ask weegy? ] (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)

HOW DOES PUNISHMENT APPLY TO THE OVERALL CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.
Weegy: The first contact an offender has with the criminal justice system is usually with the police (or law enforcement) who investigate a suspected wrong-doing and make an arrest, but if the suspect is dangerous to the whole nation, the FBI is called in . [ When warranted, law enforcement agencies or police officers are empowered to use force and other forms of legal coercion and means to effect public and social order. The term is most commonly associated with police departments of a state that are authorized to exercise the police power of that state within a defined legal or territorial area of responsibility. The word comes from the Latin politia ("civil administration"), which itself derives from the Ancient Greek p????, for polis ("city") ] (More)
