Community Corrections: Week 4 cd– Diversion Programs

Key Assignment Outline

The discussion assignment for this week includes a review of the Evaluative Needs Summary outline completed by one of your classmates, as well as a substantial response to at least 1 other student.

Primary Task Response: Your first task is to post your own Evaluative Needs Summary outline to the discussion area so that other students are able to review your plan. Attach your document to the main discussion post, and include any notes that you feel are appropriate.

Based on the profile of a (hypothetical) defendant and the stipulations of the state in which you currently reside, you are preparing an Evaluative Needs Summary presentation to members of a community corrections board, civic leaders, and concerned citizens. Your Evaluative Needs Summary outline will include the following information:

  1. Profile of the defendant
  2. Analysis of recommended probation plan (general points to consider; diversion programs)
  3. Description of how the probation program will be measured as it relates to recidivism and public safety
  4. Conclusions and recommendations
  5. References

Complete the following steps to complete the Evaluative Needs Summary outline for the defendant:

Step 1: Consider the following defendant profile.

Name: John E. Orchids

DOB: December 1, 1995

Race: Caucasian

Juvenile record:

  • First misdemeanor at age of 12 for public nuisance
  • Second misdemeanor for truancy

NOTE: Juvenile records are protected by the court and detailed information is not available.

Probation/Parole History: None

Official version of the offense: Orchids was detained for loitering. When he was searched, the officer found in his possession 1/6 of 1 ounce of a substance identified as marijuana. Possession of any unauthorized drug is a felony offense.

Plea bargain: Council for the defendant is proposing a presentence intervention program (PSIP) of which the arraignment and hearing be transferred to a drug court.

Custody status: Defendant has been released to the custody of the parents with an enforced curfew.

Step 2: Select a minimum of 6 of the 10 extralegal statements, and incorporate this information in the recommendation to the designated program director.

Extralegal information:

  • Gang affiliation: The defendant has no known gang affiliations or organized crime participation. However, he has been counseled for carrying a concealed weapon on one occasion.
  • Background and ties to the community: It has been reported that the defendant has been a regular attendee at the local church and participated in several church-sponsored programs to improve the community. He was also an active member of a scouts program through age 16.
  • Substance abuse history: This is the first incident offense where an illegal substance was identified. It is pending further interviews with the defendant to determine if there is or is not a substance abuse history.
  • Physical health: The defendant is a healthy Caucasian male with no visible scars or tattoos. There are no visible or obvious physical defects noted.
  • Mental health: The defendant related that he comes from a loving and supportive family background with a normal childhood and no traumatic incidents he can recall. The defendant has expressed remorse for the problems he has caused his mother in the past and the expense of hiring an attorney.
  • Financial circumstances: The defendant resides with parents and has no visible means of self-support.

Step 3: Now that you have a defendant profile, outline an Evaluative Needs Summary report for the following departments:

  • Presentence intervention (community corrections program)
  • Adjudicate as an adult or juvenile (judicial system program)
  • Sentencing options (corrections program)
You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
