CRIM 3200 LUCKEY TEST 3 March 11, 2008 Class cancelled!! March 13 2008 Class cancelled!! March 17-21, 2008 SPRING BREAK!!! March 25, 2008 CHAPTER 7—PROBATION AND PAROLE PROBATION is known as a test period. It is in leaux of incarceration. The Supreme Court has come back and said that probation is not a right it is a privilege. BAIL is money or property that is held by the court to ensure that an individual will appear in court on a given date. Parole, probation, and bail are very old concepts. Probation is conditional. If you break the law while you are on probation or parole, it will be revoked. A TECHNICAL VIOLATION (breaking curfew, applying for a driver’s license without permission, moving without contacting a parole/probation officer) will normally not send a defendant back to prison. A PSI (Pre-sentence Investigation) is a detailed report on the defendant. Parole/probation officers normally put a PSI together. Based on these reports, a sentence will be determined. A PSI asks three questions: o Are there any mitigating circumstances? o Are there any aggravating circumstances?

o Are there any special needs that this offender has? A VICTIM IMPACT STATEMENT is when the victim is allowed to go to the parole hearings. Often, these impact the sentence. CONDITIONS OF PROBATION are certain guidelines that are set up for the offender in order for them to be on probation. If they are violated, the conditions of the probation will be altered and in some cases, they will be sent back to jail/prison. LENGTH OF SUPERVISION varies from offender to offender. It varies from state to state as well. March 27, 2008 Death Penalty The death penalty is authorized in 37 states, the federal government and the U.S. Military. The methods of execution in the United States are: o Hanging o Lethal injection o Firing squad o The gas chamber o Electrocution Furman v. Georgia (1972) the Supreme Court held that the way the death penalty was being imposed was unconstitutional. They said that the states were not implementing the death penalty fairly. They DID NOT declare the death penalty unconstitutional, however they DID declare the manner of the death penalty unconstitutional. Gregg v. Georgia (1976) the Supreme Court reaffirmed the death penalty. This case put an end to a moratorium that was placed on all executions (all executions were halted between 1972-1976). It required all states to go back and re-examine their death penalty process. This is when states began to implement a two-stage process in a capital case. In Alabama, a judge can override a jury’s sentencing recommendation.
