CJUS 305 Intermediate Sanctions

This course is concerned with judicial and correctional sanctions that fall between traditional probation and prison. Specifically, this course focuses on a multitude of sanctions that were developed and implemented within the criminal justice system in response to the perceived leniency of probation and the dramatic increase in prison populations that led to prison overcrowding and unsustainable budgetary expenditures on corrections. The course provides a comprehensive overview of intermediate sanctions within the criminal justice system such as boot camps, day fines, restitution, shock probation, intensive probation, community service, re-integrative shaming, electronic monitoring, and graduated sanction programs to name a few.
