Imagine the following scenario:

 

You are the criminologist advisor
to a member of the state legislature. The legislature will soon vote on a bill
that, if it passes, would double the maximum prison term for anyone convicted
of armed robbery. Your boss knows the bill is popular, but wonders if it will
do much good.

 

Consider policy making as it relates
to criminal offenses. What recommendations would you make? What are the reasons
for your recommendations? Is this a good bill or a bad bill? Is this bill
effective?

 

Prepare a 750- to 1,050-word proposal
addressing the following:

 

·        
Objectives of the bill

·        
Goals of the bill

·        
Possible solutions for the bill

·        
Justification for why the bill
should be approved or not

 

Format your paper
consistent with APA guidelines.
