A large specific deterrent effect of arrest for patronizing a prostitute. (1/174)

BACKGROUND: Prior research suggests that arrest, compared with no police detection, of some types of offenders does not decrease the chances they will reoffend. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We assessed the specific deterrent effect of arrest for patronizing a street prostitute in Colorado Springs by comparing the incidence of arrest for clients of prostitutes first detected through public health surveillance with the incidence of rearrest for clients first detected by police arrest. Although these sets of clients were demographically and behaviorally similar, arrest reduced the likelihood of a subsequent arrest by approximately 70%. In other areas of the United States, arrest did not appear to displace a client's patronizing. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Our results suggest that apprehending clients decreases their patronizing behavior substantially.  (+info)

Recently, Paternoster and Bushway (2009) developed the Identity Theory of Desistance to explain how once criminal offenders transform their identities and reform. In an effort to test important components of this theory, the current study analyzed retrospective narratives from 144 substance-involved, male offenders from Delaware. After coding the narratives for mention of concepts from the identity theory and other theories of desistance, the author conducted time-based and age-based group-based trajectory models and multinomial logistic regression analyses to test whether the identity theory could explain criminal desistance. Results suggest that many offenders undergo these processes, and there may be experiences that distinguish those who desist from those who persist in crime and drug use. These include the formation of hoped-for selves, a change in preferences, social networks, and routine activities, motivation to change, and treatment ...
This article examines mental illness among adult, juvenile, male, female, jail, and prison inmates. It also explores the way in which mental health diagnoses impact offending and violent behavior. A review of literature pertaining to differences between the genders and age of offenders suggests that psychiatric disorders are more common among criminal offenders than the population at large. Furthermore, it appears that many mentally ill offenders do not receive sufficient treatment during their incarcerations and that barriers inherent to incarceration prevent adequate treatment of mental illnesses.. Emily D. Gottfried PhD, Sheresa C. Christopher, ...
Often articles and information about desistance leave me with more questions than answers. Like many practitioners, I am desperate to find the dummies guide how to stop offenders re-offending, however it is never likely to be that simple.. Desistance is a term widely used in the fields of criminology and criminal psychology to describe the process of an offender successfully stopping or reducing offending over a period of time. While the term is widely used in the research, it is only just beginning to emerge in our thinking in frontline practice in Aotearoa. However, those of us who work with offenders must develop systems and practices that give offenders the best chance of desisting from crime. In this issue of Practice we get the opportunity to explore the topic of desistance further and in context for New Zealand practitioners.. In this issue we have gathered a range of articles from New Zealand and the wider world that I hope will challenge practitioners to think about their practice ...
Individuals life chances are shaped by the times and events that they experience. This emphasizes the need for studies that focus on staggered birth cohorts. The article presents a new longitudi-nal data set that includes three complete Swedish birth cohorts, born in 1965, 1975 and 1985. Comparisons between the different birth cohorts show how offending distributions among young offenders, as well as their socio-demographic backgrounds and life chances, have developed over time. The analyses of stability and change presented in the study may serve as a point of departure for more informed discussions of the significance of societal changes for the criminality and life chances of male and female offenders.. ...
Study Purpose: This research project was designed as a replication and extension of earlier research on how childhood victimization relates to delinquency, adult criminality, and violent criminal behavior (CHILD ABUSE, NEGLECT, AND VIOLENT CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR IN A MIDWEST METROPOLITAN AREA OF THE UNITED STATES, 1967-1988 (ICPSR 9480)). This study had four major goals: (1) to document the prevalence of delinquency, adult criminality, and violence in a new cohort of abused and/or neglected children and matched controls, representing a different geographic area (Northwest), time period (1980s), and ethnic composition (to include Native American youth) as compared to earlier studies, (2) to examine the extent to which there are gender and ethnic differences in the relationship between childhood victimization and crime and violent offending, (3) to determine the extent to which different types of maltreatment (physical and sexual abuse and neglect) are associated with increased risk of subsequent ...
Sex offenders who have been released from prison may enjoy more constitutional freedoms than those who are on probation, parole, or supervised release. However, those offenders required to register their sex offender status still must obey certain conditions such as community notification and residency restrictions. At the time of this article, eight states and the federal government have laws that place some form of restriction on the use of SNSs by all sex offenders, regardless of whether they have completed their sentences. Some states have passed laws banning sex offenders from using SNSs altogether. Others require registrants to list their sex offender status on online profiles or allow SNSs access to sex offender registries. In addition, although all sex offenders are required to disclose Internet identifiers to the authorities upon registration, such reporting requirements have been successfully challenged in four states.. The Supreme Court has not yet evaluated the constitutionality of ...
This data collection was undertaken to develop a typology of narcotic addicts according to the kind, frequency, and seriousness of their crimes and to identify the most serious criminal offenders, thereby determining which individuals were best suited to rehabilitation. The following questions are addressed by the data: (1) What types of narcotic addicts can be distinguished in terms of their criminal behavior? Which of these types are amenable to rehabilitation? (2) At what time during their addiction careers do addicts commit the most crime? Do narcotic addicts mature out of addiction? (3) What is the relationship between individuals involvement in crime prior to addiction and their criminal activity and drug use over their addiction career? (4) Which demographic, personality, or other factors are associated with serious crime committed during periods of narcotic addiction? (5) What are the contributions of situational and dispositional factors to the relationship between addiction and ...
Now, new research from Temple University finds that location also plays a role in youth behavior.. Jeremy Mennis, associate professor of geography and urban studies, and Philip Harris, associate professor of criminal justice, examined how peer contagion - the influence on juveniles by other juveniles - within a neighborhood setting affects the probability that a youth who has committed a crime will commit another one.. Their findings, reported recently in the Journal of Adolescence, suggest that spatial contagion may be at work as well. In fact, the rate of recidivism among youth living nearby a juveniles residence not only increases the likelihood that youth will re-offend, it can also cause teenage boys to specialize in certain types of crime.. It turns out that contextual forces from a kids social network create spatial patterns of crime in terms of re-offending rates as well as specializations, said Mennis.. In the past, ideas about dealing with delinquency focused on the ...

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often co-occurs with antisocial behaviour. Several studies have shown high rates of ADHD among prisoners. However, the prevalence of crime among individuals with ADHD is less known. The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of lifetime criminal conviction (CC) in a clinical sample of adults with ADHD, and the associations with the severity of ADHD and emotional dysregulation (ED). Patients were admitted to a private psychiatric outpatient clinic in Oslo between 2014 and 2018. Of the 656 patients diagnosed with ADHD, 629 (95.9%) agreed to participate in the study. CC was determined based on self-reporting of the lifetime history of criminal behaviour. ADHD was diagnosed according to the DSM-5 criteria, and ADHD severity was measured using the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS). ED was assessed by the eight-item version of Barkleys Current Behaviour Scale - Self-Report (CBS-SR). The prevalence of self-reported CC in this clinical sample
The positivists rejected the concept of free-will advocated by the clas-sicists and the neo-classicists and emphasized the doctrine of determinism. Lombroso, Ferri and Garofalo were the major positivists who emphasized the biogenic or hereditary aspects of criminal behav-iour. (Heredity is the parental contribution made through 46 chromosomes. Of these, two determine the sex of the infant and 44 af-fect other qualities of the body. The combinations and permutations among the genes determine the infants particular genotype, that is, ge-netic contribution of an organism). Lombroso, an Italian physician and professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Criminal Anthropology and described as the Father of Criminol-ogy, propounded the Theory of Evolutionary Atavism (also called Theory of Physical Criminal Type or Theory of Born Criminals) in 1876. He claimed that the criminal is of a different physical type than the non-criminal (1911:365). A criminal suffers from many physical abnor-malities. As such, ...
As a prerequisite for a clinical placement in the Central Processing Certificate Program, all students must undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check and a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check. These checks are required due to potential unsupervised contact with children, the disabled, or the elderly during a clinical experience. Students found to have certain criminal convictions or pending criminal actions will be presumed ineligible for clinical placement. The College is authorized by the Commonwealths Department of Criminal Justice Information Services, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 167-178B, to access CORI records. Sex Offender checks shall be performed pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 178C-178P..

OBJECTIVE.: We aimed to systematically review risk factors for criminal recidivism in individuals given community sentences. METHODS.: We searched seven bibliographic databases and additionally conducted targeted searches for studies that investigated risk factors for any repeat offending in individuals who had received community (non-custodial) sentences. We included investigations that reported data on at least one risk factor and allowed calculations of odds ratios (ORs). If a similar risk factor was reported in three or more primary studies, they were grouped into domains, and pooled ORs were calculated. RESULTS.: We identified 15 studies from 5 countries, which reported data on 14 independent samples and 246,608 individuals. We found that several dynamic (modifiable) risk factors were associated with criminal recidivism in community-sentenced populations, including mental health needs (OR = 1.4, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.2-1.6), substance misuse (OR = 2.3, 95% CI: 1.1-4.9), association with

In itself this theory is not very useful in dictating policy for the criminal justice system, but there is the possibility for use in rehabilitation of criminal offenders. When leading to secondary deviance, this criminal label is placed on an individual during what is known as a degradation ceremony in which the accused is officially labeled as a criminal. Its You. This paper combines these two perspectives and investigates whether labeling effects might be stronger for children of convicted parents compared with children whose parents have not been convicted. Apparently, there was no labeling effect for the group whose parents have not been convicted, while there was a strong effect for children whose parents have been convicted.

Piquero and Connell also noted that those who reported bullying behavior did so at a time when bullying was not so widely publicized. This means that those who engaged in such behaviors were probably reporting the most frequent and most severe behaviors.. These are likely very conservative estimates to begin with, Connell said. So the correlation we found between risk factors for bullying and later criminal activity is compelling.. Both researchers noted that risk factors for bullying behavior, including individual and family circumstances, also predicted later criminal activity. Some of these risk factors included poor performance in school, impulsivity, poor parental supervision, family disruption, and dilapidated living conditions.. From a policy perspective, if we can address some of these risk factors early and identify children who are at risk of bullying, we can ameliorate adverse outcomes that may occur much later in life, Piquero said.. Although much needed attention has been ...
Introduction. Criminal behaviour Psychologists have done different studies to see why people commit crimes. Some have said that it is because a person is born a criminal whilst others argue that a person is influenced by society. Those who say that a person who is influenced by society might do it because they live in a poor area or they are brought up to think it is normal. Or they might have a role model who commits crimes. Those who say that a person is born a criminal say that the person might have excessive testosterone which makes them more aggressive and therefore commit more crimes. Milgrim (1963) studied the obedience of the participants. As his aim was to investigate the stages of obedience that would be shown when participants who taken part in this experiment which were told from authority figure to control the electric shock to another person. This theory started off by the teachers asking questions to the participants and if the participant answer is wrong, he would be punished ...
The proposed study is designed to test the effectiveness of recovery management checkups for women offenders (RMC-WO) released from jail to provide continuity of care immediately upon release and to help them manage their long-term recovery. The hypotheses in the first phase were: 1)women assigned to RMC (versus control) will a) return to treatment sooner after the initial release from jail and b) be more likely to receive treatment in the 90 days after release from jail; 2)women who received treatment in the first 90 days post release (vs. no treatment) will be more likely to sustain their abstinence through 90 days post release from a) any alcohol or drugs, b) alcohol, c) cannabis, d) cocaine, and e) opiates; 3)women who maintained their abstinence from any alcohol and other drugs through the first 90 days post release (vs. any relapse) will be less likely to have a) unprotected sex, b) commit any other illegal activity, and d) be re-incarcerated in jail or prison. In the second phase repeated ...
Little is known about adult outcomes of males who as adolescents sought treatment for alcohol misuse or drug use, and who additionally were engaging or not engaging in other forms of delinquency. Since the rates of negative outcomes vary in the general population, the study determined whether the sub-groups of clinic attendees fared differently as compared to males of the same age who had not sought treatment for substance misuse from age 21 to 45. Adolescent males who consulted the only substance misuse clinic in a Swedish city between 1968 and1971 were divided into four groups: ALCOHOL no drug use, no criminal offending (n = 52); ALCOHOL + D no drug use, plus criminal offending (n = 105); DRUG use, no criminal offending (n = 92); and DRUG + D plus criminal offending (n = 474). These four groups were compared to a general population sample (GP) of males matched on age and birthplace, who did not seek treatment for SM in adolescence. National Swedish registers provided data on death, ...

Intensive Wraparound Service (IWS) model in New Zealand is designed for the small number of children and young people with highly complex and challenging behaviour, social or education needs, including those with an intellectual difficulty. IWS is an ecological approach with students and family and whānau at the centre of the model. IWS supports students and families, and schools, and makes links across the key groups in the ecological model. Wraparound is an intensive, individualised care, planning and management process for children and young people with complex mental health, behavioural, and special education needs. Wraparound is often implemented for young people who have involvement in multiple child-serving agencies and whose families would benefit from coordination of effort across those systems. Wraparound is also often aimed at young people in a community, who regardless of the system(s) in which they are involved, are at risk of placements in out-of-home or out-of-community settings, ...
i agree with f(x)s answer...because if the criminal said You will sentence me to six years in prison. and it is true, then the judge cant sentence the criminal to four years to prison because the criminals statement is already true. while if the judge said that the criminals statement is false, the judge will sentence him to six years, which will actually make the criminals statement true...out of confusion the criminal was set free ...
The accused must prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that he/she abandoned his/her effort to commit the crime or otherwise prevented its commission under circumstances that show a complete and voluntary decision to renounce his/her criminal purpose. The abandonment of the criminal effort must begin with the defendant and not be forced upon him/her by some outside event, such as police intervention.7 Renunciation of criminal purpose is not voluntary if the reason for it is that it seems more likely that defendant will be detected or caught, or the objective seems more difficult than it did at the beginning of the course of conduct. Renunciation is not complete if the defendant only decides to postpone the criminal conduct to a better time or to focus on another but similar objective or victim. If mere abandonment of the criminal effort is not enough to prevent the offense, then the defendant must have taken further and affirmative steps that actually prevented the commission of the ...
The Department of Corrections has adopted the Psychology of Criminal Conduct (Andrews & Bonta, 2003) that proposes the principles of risk, need and responsivity for effective offender rehabilitation. Dowden and Andrews (1999) state that it remains unclear whether the risk-need-responsivity principles 1 can be generalised to the female offender population, although the principles themselves appear applicable to this group of offenders. Through a meta-analytic review they found that these principles of effective correctional treatment were important contributors to treatment outcome for female offenders (Dowden & Andrews, 1999, p. 448-449) although gender was not considered a specific responsivity issue. Rehabilitation can only be successful if it targets the characteristics of the offender directly related to their offending behaviour, and if that intervention is delivered in a way that takes account of the individual characteristics of the offender (Byrne & Howells, 2000, p. 6).

Oneida County currently has over 100 Sex Offenders under their supervision. If an Offender is convicted of a Misdemeanor Sex Offense and sentenced to Probation, their period of supervision is six (6) years. If an Offender is convicted of a Felony Sex Offense and sentenced to a period of Probation supervision, that term is ten (10) years. In some cases a short period of incarceration can be part of the Offenders Probation term, as dictated at the courts discretion and based on the severity of the final conviction, three (3) months for Misdemeanors and six (6) months for Felonies.**Important distinction in conviction: if an individual is convicted of a Distributing Indecent Material to a Minor, that Felony Offense is a period of five (5) years of Probation Supervision..

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patricks revamped Parole Board has voted since last April to grant early release to 17 serious criminal offenders, most of them probably convicted murderers, but the panel has not notified any of the inmates - or the families of their victims - that they are on the path to freedom, reports the Boston Globe. The delay in processing applications for parole by so-called lifers - inmates serving sentences of 15 years to life - is part of […]
No BA-ness. If youre after a ship fic; this aint it ;-). In New York Citys war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the Detectives of the Major Case Squad. These are their stories.. Chapter 1: Staircase. Madia Alvarez shifted baby Matthew onto her other hip as she headed for the kitchen. He was only eighteen months old but he was already punctual. For the past six months hed been waking up at seven oclock on the dot each morning. It certainly made Madias job easier. She lived in Walker Manor as Matthews Night Nanny. Despite what it sounded like; it wasnt that difficult a job. She cared for Matthew in the evenings and at night should he wake up. All other times he was with the Day Nanny, Abby. And since Matthew had been sleeping through the night, Madia had been enjoying her work more than ever.. Madia entered the kitchen humming a Spanish lullaby she used to sing her daughters when they were younger. That was many years ago now, all three were in college. Her job here in ...
Re Cities sue over gun-check system failures (Dec. 27):. The article reported that three large cities, including New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco have filed lawsuits against the Department of Defense. The claim is that Defense Department is not updating the FBI database for individuals who have become unqualified for gun ownership.. San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera said that Americans were being put at risk. Any intelligent person would have to agree. All branches of our military should get on board with implementing effective procedures to insure accurate and up-to-date information is available to law enforcement agencies around the country.. If this is true, then it must follow that cities such as the ones filing suit who also want to be sanctuary cities, should take a look at their own problematic activity. Criminal behavior should not be tolerated by anyone either by military personal, a U.S. citizen, or undocumented immigrant. ...

Most previous studies on mortality in violent offenders or victims are based on prison or hospital samples, while this study analyzed overall and cause specific mortality among violent offenders, victims, and individuals who were both offenders and victims in a general sample of 48,834 18-20 year-old men conscripted for military service in 1969/70 in Sweden. Each person completed two non-anonymous questionnaires concerning family, psychological, and behavioral factors. The cohort was followed for 35 years through official registers regarding violent offenses, victimization, and mortality. The impact of violence, victimization, early risk factors and hospitalization for psychiatric diagnosis or alcohol and drug misuse during follow up on mortality was investigated using Cox proportional hazard regression analyses. Repeat violent offenses were associated with an eleven fold higher hazard of dying from a substance-related cause and nearly fourfold higher hazard of dying from suicide. These figures remained
Money laundering is the criminal enterprise where financial transactions are used to conceal the identity, source and/or destination of money that has been made illegally. Many criminal organizations such as drug cartels use money laundering to hide their drug money from the government and spread the money out to other locations to avoid leaving a trail. The laws have changed recently to expand on the criminal activity of money laundering to involve any financial transaction that creates an asset or a value due to money earned illegally. This measure is to cover anyone and everyone who enters into money laundering so to dissuade people who venture into criminal activity. There are many examples of money laundering that people and criminal organizations like the Mafia engage in to hide their illegal tender from the watchful eye of the government.. ...

The adversary system of trial, now the defining feature of Anglo-American criminal procedure, developed late in English legal history. For centuries, defendants were forbidden to have trial counsel. Prosecution counsel was allowed but seldom used. The criminal trial was meant to be a lawyer-free occasion at which the defendant could hear the accusing evidence and respond to it in person. The transformation from lawyer-free to lawyer-dominated criminal trials happened within the space of about a century, from the 1690s to the 1780s. This book explains how the lawyers captured the trial. In addition to conventional legal sources, the book draws upon a rich vein of contemporary pamphlet accounts about trials in Londons Old Bailey. The book also mines these novel sources to provide the first detailed account of the formation of the law of criminal evidence. Responding to menacing prosecutorial initiatives (notably reward-seeking thieftakers and crown witnesses testifying to save their own necks), the

NOTICE: TO ALL VIOLENT OFFENDERS WHO COMMITTED THEIR OFFENSES IN INDIANA PRIOR TO JULY 1, 2007 AND WHO ARE NOT REQUIRED TO REGISTER AS VIOLENT OFFENDERS AS A CURRENT CONDITION OF PROBATION OR PAROLE. The violent offender law requiring registration and a registry of violent offenders is unconstitutionally retroactive under the Indiana Constitution as applied to violent offenders who committed their offenses in Indiana before the date the law went into effect, July 1, 2007, except insofar as the persons are required to register as a current condition of probation or parole..

Definition of Professional Judgment in the Financial Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Professional Judgment? Meaning of Professional Judgment as a finance term. What does Professional Judgment mean in finance?
New research by Associate Dean Paul Litton and MU Associate Professor of Philosophy Philip Robbins shows that offenders with genetic mental disorders are judged more negatively than mentally disordered offenders whose criminal behavior is rooted in environmental factors, such as childhood abuse. Additionally, offenders with genetic mental disorders are judged just as negatively as offenders whose mental disorder has no explanation.. Before conducting two surveys with 600 participants, Dean Litton and Professor Robbins hypothesized that offenders with a mental disorder that predisposes them to criminal behavior would be judged more negatively if the disorder was genetic rather than environmental in origin. That hypothesis was confirmed, though they were surprised that genetic explanations did not mitigate judgments of blame compared to cases with no explanation of the offenders disorder.. They also expected to find that different environmental explanations would elicit different judgments. For ...
This chapter of Women in Canada explores the criminal victimization of women and girls as well as their involvement in the criminal justice system as offenders. It covers the types of criminal victimization experienced by females over time; where possible, highlighting important differences in violent crime by Aboriginal identity, immigrant status, visible minority status and age. The use of formal and informal support services is explored, including changes over time in the use of police services. This chapter also reports trends in the number and types of crimes committed by females, along with their involvement in the criminal courts and correctional systems.

Scots criminal law governs the rules of criminal law in Scotland. Scottish criminal law relies far more heavily on common law than in England and Wales. Scottish criminal law includes offences against the person of murder, culpable homicide, rape and assault, offences against property such as theft and malicious mischief, and public order offences including mobbing and breach of the peace. Scottish criminal law can also be found in the statute books of the UK Parliament with some areas of criminal law, such as misuse of drugs and traffic offences appearing identical on both sides of the Border. Scottish criminal law can also be found in the statute books of the Scottish Parliament such as the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 asp 9 and Prostitution (Public Places) (Scotland) Act 2007 asp 11 which only apply to Scotland. In fact, the Scots requirement of corroboration in criminal matters changes the practical prosecution of crimes derived from the same enactment. Corroboration is not required ...

Society tends to see sex crimes as some of the most serious, often because it does irreparable mental harm to the victim. One type of punishment for sex offenders is chemical castration to prevent any further sexual urges.HistoryDuring the early part of the twentieth century, chemical castration was seen as an accepted practice for certain crimes, such as sexual deviancy, according to Florida State University. Chemical castration fell out of favor after World War II, but new drugs that could specifically target the male libido brought it back into the fold as a viable punishment during the 1980s.IdentificationChemical castration actually w...

In California, defense lawyers have a legal and ethical duty to advise clients on their criminal cases immigration consequences. This duty is extremely important because a criminal conviction can result in deportation, even for an immigrant who has lived and worked legally in the United States for decades. In light of the Trump administrations emphasis on the removal of criminal aliens, we are seeing an increase in litigation of criminal removal cases, and gaining clarity in this complex area of the law. As a criminal defense lawyer working in Los Angeles, I represent many clients whose immigration status is threatened by their criminal charges. This is why I am passionate about following developments in criminal-removal cases, and am particularly excited about a U.S. Supreme Court case decided this week called Sessions v. Dimaya. The Dimaya case involved a constitutional challenge to a criminal-removal provision in the immigration laws, which historically have been almost wholly immune from ...

Those that believe re-entry programs need reform typically point to recidivism rates within the United States criminal justice system. While those against reform claim that recidivism rates are indicative of inherent criminality amongst certain groups, those in support of reform believe it is indicative of the ineffectiveness of re-entry and parole programs. Different types of disenfranchisement exist that affect the formerly incarcerated after their release. Advocates of criminal justice reform in the United States often also push for the reform of restrictions on federal aid and societal participation.[25] Federal restrictions that exist include bans on the use of welfare programs and federal financial aid for education.[25] Restrictions on societal participation include felons not being allowed to hold public office, teach or work in child care, or vote. Voting restrictions are known as felony disenfranchisement.[25] This refers to the regulations that prevent those with a felony conviction ...
Antisocial personality disorder, psychopathy, dissocial personality disorder and sociopathy are constructs that have generally been used to predict recidivism and dangerousness, alongside being used to exclude patients from treatment services. However, antisocial personality disorder has recently begun to emerge as a treatment diagnosis, a development reflected within cognitive behaviour therapy and mentalisation-based psychotherapy. Many of the behaviour characteristics of antisocial personality disorder are, at the same time, being targeted by interventions at criminal justice settings. A significantly higher proportion of published articles focusing on antisocial personality concern treatment when compared to articles on psychopathy. Currently, the proposal for antisocial personality disorder for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition, suggests a major change in the criteria for this disorder. While the present definition focuses mainly on observable behaviours,
Understanding whether, and in what situations, time spent in prison is criminogenic or preventive has proven challenging due to data availability and correlated unobservables. This paper overcomes these challenges in the context of Norways criminal justice system, offering new insights into how incarceration affects subsequent crime and employment. We construct a panel dataset containing the criminal behavior and labor market outcomes of the entire population, and exploit the random assignment of criminal cases to judges who differ systematically in their stringency in sentencing defendants to prison. Using judge stringency as an instrumental variable, we find that imprisonment discourages further criminal behavior, and that the reduction extends beyond incapacitation. Incarceration decreases the probability an individual will reoffend within 5 years by 29 percentage points, and reduces the number of offenses over this same period by 11 criminal charges. In comparison, OLS shows positive ...

Individuals living with mental illness are at far greater risk of arrest than the general population. Building Alliances between the Mental Health and Criminal Justice Systems to Prevent Unnecessary Arrests, a report commissioned by NAMI Mass and the Association for Behavioral Health (ABH), illustrates the high prevalence of adults and children who are arrested and incarcerated as a result of behaviors that reflect symptoms of their mental illness rather than criminal behavior. Prisons and jails have become de-facto holding areas for people with mental illness, resulting in a wide range of debilitating consequences in individuals lives. There is an urgent need to develop and expand a continuum of responsive community-based mental health services as an alternative to arrest and detention.. A number of police departments have already developed training initiatives or created relationships with local mental health providers in order to better serve their communities, in many cases with support ...

The age-crime curve typically shows an increase in rates from the minimum age of criminal responsibility and reaches a peak in the teenage years. It then declines, at first quickly and then more gradually. The curve also seems to reflect variations in prevalence (the proportion of persons who are offenders) rather than incidence (the rate of offending by offenders). Age-crime curves for individuals do not resemble the aggregate curve, since incidence does not change consistently between the onset and the termination of criminal careers. This has major implications for criminal justice policy because the greatest residual length of criminal careers (and hence, the greatest potential incapacitative effect) may be between the ages of 30 and 40, rather than at the peak age. Different types of offenses peak at different ages. This probably reflects crime switching rather than the replacement of one group of offenders by another. There is little specialization in offending, but specialization does ...
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ said on Sunday that Turkey would adopt chemical castration for child abusers after the brutal abuse and murder of an 8-year-old child was discovered over the weekend.. Eylül Yağlıkara had been missing since June 22 in Ankaras Uzunbeyli village and was found on Saturday buried near a power pole one kilometer from the village.. A preliminary autopsy indicated that she had been abused and tortured.. Uğur K., a neighbor of the Yağlıkara family, was named a suspect in the incident after strands of the girls hair were found in his car..

Objectives: This study compared recidivism outcomes among criminal offenders with mental illness who were assigned to a mental health court (MHC) or a traditional criminal court. It also explored potential differences in outcomes between subgroups of offenders, including felony and misdemeanor offenders and violent and nonviolent offenders. Methods: Data were obtained from court databases. Offenders in the MHC (N=198) and the traditional criminal court (N=198) were matched by propensity scores and followed for 12 months after the index offense. Data for the 12 months preceding the index offense were obtained for MHC participants. Intent-to-treat analyses were conducted, using both between-group and within-subjects designs. Results: After control for covariates, logistic and Cox regressions indicated that MHC assignment predicted a lower overall rate of recidivism and longer time to rearrest for a new charge compared with assignment to traditional court. The groups did not significantly differ on the
An original and consequential argument about race, crime, and the law Today, Americans are debating our criminal justice system with new urgency. Mass incarceration and aggressive police tactics - and their impact on people of color - are feeding outrage and a consensus that something must be done. But what if we only know half the story? In Locking Up Our Own, the Yale legal scholar and former public defender James Forman Jr. weighs the tragic role that some African Americans themselves played in escalating the war on crime. As Forman shows, the first substantial cohort of black mayors, judges, and police chiefs took office around the country amid a surge in crime. Many came to believe that tough measures - such as stringent drug and gun laws and pretext traffic stops in poor African American neighborhoods - were needed to secure a stable future for black communities. Some politicians and activists saw criminals as a cancer that had to be cut away from the rest of black America. Others ...

Wolfgang first reviews his personal contacts with criminal justice professionals and criminologists in China, followed by an overview of crime and justice in China. He reports an increase in the crime rate in recent years and a policy of severe punishment for serious criminals; 40 percent of offenders are sentenced to fixed terms of 5 years or more. The seminar then turns to the 1973 birth cohort study for a Chinese city. Data are being collected by trained researchers from police records, household census data, and interviews with neighborhood committees, school personnel, and parents. The birth cohort consists of 5,300 subjects. Of these, only 81 subjects (76 males and 5 females) have committed known delinquent acts. This is the smallest percentage of delinquents in any birth-cohort study in any country. Wolfgang presents findings from a comparison of the characteristics of the delinquent group with a sample nondelinquent group. Differences are noted in the areas of educational achievement, ...
Criminal Law is a compulsory module in the LLB programme. The aim of this module is to enable students to state and apply the rules of the English criminal law dealt with in the course accurately and relevantly, and to accurately explain recent actual and proposed changes to this area of law. It will also enable students to appreciate the wider contextual issues related to criminal law and to compare and contrast that law accurately and relevantly with the equivalent areas of any other legal system with which the student is familiar. Finally, the module will also allow students to undertake legal research to acquire knowledge of the key components of the criminal law, and to further utilise that knowledge by applying it to hypothetical factual scenarios involving the criminal law.. ...
Addicted to Courts: How a Growing Dependence on Drug Courts Impacts People and Communities finds that providing people with alternatives like community-based treatment are more cost-effective and provide greater public safety benefits than treatment that comes with the collateral consequences associated with involvement in the criminal justice system. It is shameful that for many people involvement in the criminal justice system is the only way to access substance abuse treatment in this country, said Nastassia Walsh, author of Addicted to Courts and Research Associate at JPI. We need to change the way we think about drug use and the drug policies that bring so many people into the justice system. Walsh added, The dramatic increase in drug courts over the past 20 years may provide talking points for so-called tough-on-crime policymakers; however, there are other, better options that can save money and support people and communities. More effective, community-based programs and services ...
