1. Explain what Intensive Supervision Programs are. What are the goals of ISP? The Intensive Supervision Program (ISP) is recognized as a supervision type program with the following characteristics: “low officer/client caseloads; high levels of offender accountability, restitution, community service, payment of fines, partial offender responsibility; high levels of offender control and frequent checks for arrest, drug and/or alcohol use, and employment/school attendance” (P441). 2. What is victim-offender mediation? What sorts of juveniles are eligible for participating in such mediation? Victim-offender mediation is a “third party intervention mechanism whereby perpetrator and victim work out a civil solution to otherwise criminal or delinquent actions” (P451). Juveniles of who are eligible for victim-offender types of mediation are understood to be those that are not consistent and repeat violent offenders; applying this process of mediation allows for juveniles to take more responsibility for their actions and feel the effects of such actions personally as well as legally. 3. Discuss Guardian Ad Litem as it relates to defense attorneys Guardian Ad Litem is recognized as “special authorities appointed by the court in which particular litigation is pending to represent a youth, ward, or unborn person in that particular litigation” (P439). Defense attorneys, in the case of abused children where the abusers are the parents of said children, are responsible for ensuring that the best interest of their clients are served in such a way that will protect the children from their abusers while litigation is pending. 4. What are the positive benefits resulting from juvenile court adjudications? What are the negative implications of juvenile court adjudications? Positive benefits that can be recognized through the application of juvenile court adjudications are the lack of formal proceedings becoming a permanent part of the juvenile’s criminal record; if done properly and effectively, there is no need for formal adjudication which can later then be comparable to a possible scare tactic to prevent repeat types of behaviors in the future. “For offenders that are non-adjudicated, a formal decision is not rendered; rather, an informal declaration is made by the judge to dispose of these cases with minimal intrusion into the families lives of those affected by the court decision” (P231). For all intents and purposes we can also annotate that the use of juvenile court adjudication might have less of a standing effect on the offender and might result in repeat offenses in the future. 5. What is the significance of the Barker Vs. Wingo case? Does the Barker case have any influence on juvenile matters? Why or Why not?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
