Conviction & Sentencing

Write a report that includes the following:
Suppose the defendant in your case is found guilty by the jury. What happens next for the defendant?
Discuss the types of sentencing options that might be available. Which sentencing option would you choose
for the defendant and why? Suppose the defendant is incarcerated. Will he/she go to jail or prison? Explain.
Would alternative sentencing work for your scenario? In your opinion, is your defendant a good candidate
for an alternative community sanction? Do you support this? Why or why not? If so, what type of alternative
sentencing would be appropriate? Explain your reasoning.
Include at least 3 new criminal justice terms and bold them so your instructor can distinguish your new
terms from terms you have already used.
Write to purpose, there is no word count or page length requirement.
