49. Role of Sentencing a. Retribution – form of revenge – eye for an eye b. Incapacitation – act of confinement to prevent c. Deterrence – prevents crime using an example or threat of punishment to persuade against crime – crime prevention d. Rehabilitation – reform the offender, hope the offender recognizes error and becomes better citizen e. Restoration – the goal is to heal the victim, offender and community, through community service 50. “Just Desserts” Model of Sentencing a. Emphasizes retribution and revenge b. Stresses offender is accountable for criminal act b.i. Therefore punishment is necessary, deserved and appropriate 51. Concurrent Sentence – if convicted of more than one crime, the concurrent sentence is served at the same time as another 52. Consecutive Sentence – at least two sentences are served one after the other in sequence 53. Parole – early release from prison based on certain conditions (ei: good behavior), decided by Parole Board 54. House Arrest – sentence imposed where the offender is required to remain confined to their home at certain times of the day (used for pregnant women, old age persons, seriously ill, mentally retarded etc.) 55. Uniform Crime Report (UCR) – annual report published by the FBI - statistical data reported in the US on data from police reports a. PART I crime – as listed on UCR b. Know which of these was just added…. And who is more likely to commit.. adult male, teen, young male, I said male over 40??? c. Know which one is least likely to be solved… I said robbery ??? c.i. Homicide c.ii. Rape c.iii. Robbery c.iv. Aggravated assault c.v. Burglary c.vi. Larceny c.vii. Arson c.viii. Vehicle theft d. PART II crimes – those not listed as Part I crimes e. UCR has a hierarchy rule, if Jim killed John and set fire to a car and robbed a lady, this is reported as one crime. – drawback to the system 56. Newly improved UCR is called National Incident Based Reporting System also known as NIBRS a. NOW collected at the incident level – old UCR was based on frequency calculations b. No longer has the hierarchy rule –and can also collect a broad range of characteristics such as whether it was drug or alcohol related 57. National Crime Victimization Survey – (NCVS) – yearly study by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) of specific households to determine the level of criminal victimization, particularly unreported (self reported by victim??) 58. (UCR) Uniform Crime Report & National Crime Victimization Survey – (NCVS) - Use historical data to predict trends – allow for comparison – prevent crime a.i. Drawback is that not all crimes are reported and certain crimes are victimless a.ii. NCVS does not validate the victim version of events (also drawback) b. Between UCR and NCVS – most experts prefer the NCVS, believe that self-reporting is more accurate than police reports 59.

    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.
