Sample text

Although crime rates have fallen, the number of people under correctional supervision has climbed. Pressured by the public to “do something” about crime, political leaders have enacted policies to toughen the punishment of offenders. Laws requiring truth-in-sentencing, “three strikes and you’re out,” and sex offender notification resulted directly from this public concern. These policies have crowded prisons and jails, swamped probation and parole caseloads, and tripled correctional costs. Yet a shift in public policy may again be underway.

For example, if the prison system provides inadequate drug treatment, offenders return to the community with the same drug problems they had when they were locked up. When citizens subsequently lose confidence in their corrections system, they tend not to spend tax dollars on its programs.

When a law is broken, citizens express outrage. The deviant thus focuses group feeling. As people unite against the offender, they feel a sense of mutuality or community. Punishing those who violate the law makes people more alert to shared interests and values. Three basic concepts of Western criminal law—offense, guilt, and punishment— define the purpose and procedures of criminal justice. In the United States, Congress and state legislatures define what conduct is considered criminal. The police, prosecutors, and courts determine the guilt of a person charged with a criminal offense.
