Sample text

Fyodor Dostoevsky, Russian novelist (1821–1881) Introduction Corrections in the United States is composed of numerous components, which include probation, community corrections, jails, prisons, and parole. Corrections is directly linked to judicial sentencing, and though it remains under the scrutiny of American society, it is the least known component of the criminal justice system. Throughout most of history, punishment has been both direct and harsh. During medieval times, branding, mutilation, flogging, banishment, and death were common punishments, and frequently administered publicly to serve as a warning to others.

It was reasoned that the way a society treated those confined reflected the values of that society. 8 The Penitentiary in America: NewGate, Walnut Street Jail, and the Early Efforts to Develop Prisons The nature of confinement has changed in the United States over the last 200 years. Once used sparingly, by 2007 over 2,300,000 adult inmates were confined in the United States. Though we now see adult correctional institutions as an essential part of our system of justice, the earliest American prisons evolved as the need to hold adult offenders longer than practical in the typical jail became great.

Currently, with over 2,500,000 confined in the jails and prisons across the nation and the inmate population increasing, correctional professionals will continually search for ways to make the operation of the jails and prisons of the nation more safe and effective. Institutional corrections will continually face challenges as they work to provide the safest, most secure environment possible, while maintaining control over the inmate population placed into their custody. Explain how early legal codes, such as the Code of Hammurabi from Babylon or the Roman Law of the Twelve Tables, contributed to the evolution of law and justice.
