Question description

Ashford 6: - Week 5 - Discussion 2

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

Mandatory Sentencing

The trend in the United States is toward mandatory sentencing for most criminal offenses. Include the following in your initial post:

  1. Define mandatory sentencing.
  2. Discuss the pros and cons of mandatory sentencing.
  3. Provide your opinion of whether or not you agree with mandatory sentencing provisions.
  4. Examine whether or not courts should view each case based on its own facts, or whether or not equal justice can only be achieved through mandatory minimum sentencing.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Focus upon the fairness of treating everyone the same, regardless of the circumstances which brought them to the sentencing before a court. Question the validity of a “one size fits all” criminal justice sentencing scheme.
