Tutor description

Social norms are a mix of informal—often unspoken—rules, guides, and standards of behavior. These nonlegal rules and obligations are followed and fulfilled in part because failure to do so brings upon the transgressor such social sanctions as induced feelings of guilt or shame, gossip, shunning, ostracism, and not infrequently, violence (O’Donnell, 2007). Some states include status offenders in the same category as juvenile delinquents. Other states place status offenders into the position of children, juveniles, or minors in need of supervision. • Do you believe status offenders and juvenile delinquents should be treated the same? • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style

CRJS315-DB4Name'ClassDateProfessorCRJS315-DB4 Discretion is the authority to make decisions while in the field. All members of the criminal justice system are afforded the discretion to make decisions concerning the criminal justice process. The investigation and arrest stage are the responsibility of the police. The police identify criminal suspects in society and then conduct an investigation in order to gather enough evidence to prove the guilt of the criminal suspect. Police have discretion in selecting criminal suspects in society and in deciding who will actually be arrested. For example police can arrest juvenile offenders or place them in the custody of their parents. In the pretrial and trial stage the prosecutor has the authority to make decisions that pertain to the criminal defendant. These decisions involve the discretion to determine what suspects that have been arrested will actually be charged and the discretion to offer defendants plea deals. In the trial stage the judge has discretion to rule on motions in front of the court and has limited discretion in sentencing the criminal defendant that is found guilty in a court of law.
