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. ]

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)

Should certain juvenile offenders be waived to adult courts? Why or why not? Should juveniles who commit serious capital crimes under the age of 16 be eligible for the death penalty? Why or why not?
Weegy: There are no pros. It's inhumane, crazy, and shows no aspects of forgiveness. We need to turn away from the "eye for an eye" Anyways, kids brains aren't fully developed until around 18. User: Yes I do feel that some crimes that juveniles commit should be charged in adult court. I think that most juveniles know what is right and what is wrong. I don't feel all crimes need to be in adult court just murder, rape, and other violent crimes seeing how by the age of 10 if not sooner juveniles know that murder and rape is wrong. If juveniles think they can murder someone and get away with being charged as a juvenile then more juveniles would commit the crime now if they see that the court is not going to let them off then juvenile murders may cut down. This is hard to say I don't think that any child under the age of 13 should face the death penalty, but they should face life if it was murder. Now any juvenile over the age of 13 and depending on the crime should face the death penalty but they shouldn't execute them till they are over the age of 18. Again this may cut down on juveniles commit capital crimes. Weegy: i agree with you.. thats why they shouldn't be charged as the same way and adult is charged. They should be of legal age. (More)

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)
