A 3-4 sentence response to each post below. respond as if for your classmates. POST 1) As defined in our text, intermediate sanctions are the use of split sentencing, shock, probation or parole, shock incarceration, community service, intensive supervision, or home confinement in lieu of other, more traditional sanctions such as imprisonment and fines. They are different than traditional forms of sentencing because it combines the concepts between imprisonment and probation. The advantage that these sanctions offer is that they still provide punishments to fit the crime, but the offender doesn’t always have to serve jail or prison time. a good example of an advantage would be an offender doing community service and giving back to the community instead of paying a fine or serving a few months in jail. POST 2) What are immediate sanctions? How do they differ from more traditional forms of sentencing? What advantages do they offer? Intermediate sanctions are options between doing actual jail time and probationary programs such as releasing the offender back into the community on terms that he/she will be monitored by a probationer officer weekly, monthly, or quarterly depending on the charges. Sanctions include probation (supervision), shock incarceration, and being restricted to a home with a location monitor or GPS device attached to the offender’s leg. Sanctions are less expensive than incarceration, socially effective and cheaper keeping the offender in the community, and more efficient places of service with more resources.
