Court Trials Journal Assignment

 Alternative Formats

Each of your answers should be written using your own words. Do not copy and paste from your textbook or an Internet source. Simply copying from the book word-for-word does not show me that you understand the concepts.  Ensure you cite your work and add reference(s) at the end of your journal. This assignment is designed to see if you are reading and understanding the material from your textbook and learning modules, so these should be the sources you are citing in your work. You should not need to do research from additional resources unless the question specifically asks you to do so; you should not be Googling the answers for these questions.

(Every answer should have an in-text citation that looks like this (Gaines and Miller, 2019).

-The reference citation for your book would go at the end.

Gaines, L.G., and Miller, R.R. (2019). CJ: Criminal Justice (5th edition). Cengage Learning.)All questions are worth 20 points:

1. Discuss the due process function and the rehabilitation function of the courts.

2. Compare/Contrast trial courts and appellate courts.

3. What is a preliminary hearing and why is it important?

4. Compare/Contrast a bench trial with a jury trial. Why would a defendant choose a bench trial over a jury trial. Provide a real-world case in your answer where a defendant has asked for a bench trial.

5. Describe the goals of contemporary sentencing and be able to give an example of each.
