Compare and contrast the 4 main sentencing goals (retribution, deterrence, incapacitation, rehabilitation). Discuss the advantages and weaknesses of each goal. You are required to create a thread in response to the provided prompt for each forum. Each thread must be 300–350 words, include at least 2 peer-reviewed sources cited in current APA format, and demonstrate course-related knowledge. Acceptable sources include peer-reviewed journal articles, the textbook, the Bible, etc.
In this course, Discussion Board Forums play an exceptionally important role. Consider these threads and replies to be formal communications on the same level as those you would conduct with employers, clients, or colleagues in the professional, political, or academic world. As such, they must be free of grammatical errors, must be properly formatted in current APA format, and must consist of well-reasoned, contemplative, and substantive posts and replies. These threads and replies must be adequately supported by citations of the sources or support for your ideas as well as any quoted materials.
Compare and contrast the 4 main sentencing goals (retribution, deterrence, incapacitation, rehabilitation). Discuss the advantages and weaknesses of each goal. Would different sentencing models (indeterminate sentence, determinate sentence, consecutive & concurrent sentences) be appropriate for different crimes? Why or why not? Considering the goals of sentencing, what sentencing model would you attach for violent crimes? Property crimes? Drug crimes?
