Criminal Justice

For Term Paper Assignment #4, students should make a rough outline of their paper. The general outline from the Term Paper Info document is replicated below in addition to a more specific example on secondary prisonization. The purpose of this outline is to help formulate your key points for the paper based on the initial sources you’ve skimmed/read through. They are tentative and can change, but you should have the beginnings of some ideas noted down. General Outline Introduction to main gender and crime/CJ issue, noting each key point of discussion Point #1 Point #2 Point #3 Policy Recommendation Conclusion Example: Gender & Secondary Prisonization Introduction: Secondary prisonization articulates that loved ones of those incarcerated also feel the negative effects of imprisonment. This is most noticeably documented when women partners visit their incarcerated male significant others in prison and they too feel like they’re being punishment. Second, women continue this when their partner is released. Finally, Aiello & McCorkel note that children also experience secondary prisonization through their study of children visiting their mothers in prison. Point #1: Women partners of incarcerated men experience secondary prisonization most strongly as quasi-inmates when they visit their loved ones at the prison according to Comfort. They also act as quasi-corrections officers (COs) to improve behavior. Point #2: Comfort also notes that women continue to feel these effects when their partners are on parole and they feel the pains of being both a quasi-parolee and -parole officer (PO). Point #3: Children also feel the effects of secondary prisonization and learn to regulate their emotions and behavior differently when in prison visiting their mothers (Aiello & McCorkel) Policy Recommendation: Provide more support services and resources for loved ones of incarcerated people (either governmental or non-governmental). This could include mental health services, better training for COs and POs, and better job training programs for incarcerated men. Conclusion: Secondary prisonization is oftened neglected in criminal justice as its main focus is not on the offenders, victims, or criminal justice professionals. However, we need to understand that many people are impacted by incarceration and suffer its consequences even if they do not serve a sentence themselves.
