These models are issued based on the type and seriousness of the crime committed (Seiter, 2014). Determinate sentencing means that an offender is being sentenced to a fixed amount of time in the prison system with a specific release date. In contrast, an indeterminate sentence involves an offender being sentenced to prison for a term that includes a minimum sentence without a specific maximum term. After the minimum sentence has been served, the case goes before a parole board for possible early release (Seiter,

Felon disenfranchisement did not start in the United States. In fact, the practice of felon disenfranchisement began in ancient Greece and Rome before evolving even more in England with “outlawry”, by the time this practice came to the United States it began to evolve into what it is today based on the other nations practices (Grady, 2012, pp. 443-445). Felon disenfranchisement, for those who do not know, is taking away a felon’s right to vote. Usually, this only occurs when they are incarcerated, but some states also do not allow the ex-felons to vote even when they are back in regular society.
Every day we hear about crime and criminals in newspapers, on television, news reports and in general conversations throughout our socials circles. It is a constant concern and fear in society today and down through the generations. Crime is defined in some dictionaries as ‘’an act or omission that violates the law of the land and punishable by the guardians of the law.’’ Finding solutions for crime is an ongoing process. There are many theories on crime, causation and solutions. Politicians, interest groups, journalists and individual researchers have tried to find the cause of crime and the solution to this problem.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the practice of finding the link between one’s thought’s belief’s and actions, and finding an alternative method to intervene with the connection. This effective process has been in place within the Criminal Justice system for many years now. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has many different uses and can be placed in to effect in many different ways. Take the for mentioned Criminal Justice System for example. For many years now the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy process has helped many inmates in the past and present to change their thought process and actions while within the criminal justice system.
In Arifin v Secretary, Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs  FCAFC 61 (Arifin), the unrepresented appellant failed to comply with rule 36.01(2)(c) of the Federal Court Rules 2011, which required him to state “briefly but specifically, the ground relied on in support of the appeal”.4 Whilst Arifin serves as a reminder that the rules of the court should be equally binding on all parties irrespective of whether or not they have legal representation, the Full Court of the Federal Court in SZRUR v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection FCAFC 146 (SZRUR) confirmed that the courts have an overriding duty to ensure that a trial is conducted fairly and in accordance with the law. 5 It is brought forward in the above two case laws, 6 that active adjudication is an important tool to promote both fairness and efficiency in administrative justice. In a number of Courts, the adjudicative model has begun to shift from a more traditional, passive approach to one in which decision-makers more actively adjudicate cases and direct the course of the proceedings. As seen in Childrens Court observation7, it was obvious to all that the SRL was oblivious to the court proceedings and how and what was required. This case was towards the final stage of the matter.

As a criminal justice major, I was able to take numerous courses that thoroughly analyzed the many aspects of our country’s prison system. These courses taught me that in a system where oppression is rampant, social injustice will also be prevalent. Particularly, the issues of death by incarceration, racial disparities and the prioritization of punitive measures rather than treatment filled me with an indescribable rage. Consequently, my frustration left me with a sense of disappointment and hopelessness and led to me to question whether social equality would ever prevail. This mindset changed after I had the honor of being selected to participate in the Inside-Out Prison Exchange service-learning course.
Criminal Justice is the study of social control and the agencies that are involved in the apprehension, prosecution, defense, sentencing, incarceration, and supervision of those suspected or charged with or convicted of criminal offences. Throughout our study of this section, we learn a lot of the Criminal Justice System and all the agencies, organizations, and personnel that are involved in the prevention and response to criminals and to persons charged or convicted of criminal offences or convicted of crimes. Upon my visit to the criminal court of Surrey, I learned many new aspects and perspectives of the courtroom, that I had never come across before, and so throughout my report, I will be discussing my observations and experiences in the courtroom. As I entered the court, I came to acknowledge the court room and it’s set up, as it was all quite new to me, as I had never experienced it

TO: Thomas R. Krane, P.h.D., Acting Director of Federal Bureau of Prisons FROM: Roger Rael, Graduate Student University of Colorado-Denver DATE: Tuesday, May 10, 2016 RE: Evaluating the consequences of continued super-max confinement I. Issue The issue is broad and national in scope. Whether the Federal Bureau of Prisons should continue supporting the use of super-max facilities is a matter of extreme societal and legal questions. Solitary confinement, for an extended or indefinite period of time, implicates constitutional rights and questions our morality as a society. The Supreme Court of the United States, in Wilkinson v. Austin, decided more than a decade ago that the state of Ohio 's Super Max facilities did not violate those prisoner 's due process rights long established under precedent.
Not since the reconstruction period after the civil war had there been such a “significant statutory change in the relationship between the Federal and state governments” (ourdocuments.gov). Though the states power regarding their voting laws had been restricted by the federal government, recentness has given back said power to the states. As aforementioned, Section 5 is no longer enforceable. But why? Section 4(b) was deemed unconstitutional in 2013 because of its “coverage formula” (civilrights.org), which used outdated methods to determine a states pre-clearance in Section 5.
#02 The Route in Ending Prison Privatization Queens Detention Facility located in Springfield Gardens, Jamaica, Queens NYC was once working with the state’s criminal justice system to house incarcerated inmates. This private prison facility which was operated by The GEO Group was later locked down due to the controversies involving violation of its inmates’ human rights. Back in 2011, Bill de Blasio who was then an advocate of New York City Public brought The GEO Group to US department of Justice seeking to end the contract with them stating that “This is not complicated: government should not do business with companies that violate basic human rights”1. The case with the Queens Detention Facility controversy is just one of the stories we
In the Hunger Games, there are many class distinctions between the tributes, their districts, and, of course, the oppressive Capitol. In multiple places we can see the class distinctions made clear by Suzanne Collins. You may be wondering what “classes” there might be in the Hunger Games, or what even a “class” is. The “classes” that I am talking about are the groups or types of people there are in Panem, how and where they live, and how this affects the plot events of the story. In the following paragraphs there will be discussion on the class distinctions of the districts, the tributes, and certainly on how the people of the Capitol influence the story of the Hunger Games.
