Diverse concepts and reviewed several cases
So far, we have covered diverse concepts and reviewed several cases. This comprehensive assignment will help pull that knowledge together into a more concrete understanding.
- Review three cases that involved a felon being a repeat offender, and provide an overview of the cases as a part of the introduction.
- In the body of your report, define and discuss recidivism rate and restorative justice. Identify the types of crime that were committed, and describe the impact of each crime on the victim(s).
- Also in the body, examine if any of these felony arrests consisted of warrantless searches, and determine the impact, if any, that these warrantless searches had on the recidivism rate as well as the individuals’ Fourth Amendment constitutional rights.
- In the summary/conclusion, analyze the historical trends as they relate to the recidivism rate.
To satisfy the three-case requirement, you may use up to two cases from a previous unit and one new case. However, do not simply copy text from your previous submissions, as it will be flagged as self-plagiarism for this assignment. You should use a minimum of four academic sources (e.g., the three cases you select and your textbook), but you may use additional academic sources if relevant to the topic.
Your research report must be four pages in length, not counting the title page and references page. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, and make certain to include in-text citations and references for all sources that are used.
