Sentencing and the Correctional Process (Chapter 2) (Significant Case)


Significant Cases: For this assignment complete an essay detailing the significance of the case assigned (not a brief, but an essay). Include why the offender was arrested and a brief description of his journey through the criminal justice system. Most significantly, include what effects this case has had on the criminal justice system, if any. There is not a word count requirement, but I do expect a complete answer.

Read Florida v. Shane Guthrie. Explain why plea bargaining has become the norm in the State of Florida and many other states.

Explain what the text is referring too by a “transfer of power” and has this created a more informal system.
