The unique needs of each individual offender means that a “one size fits all” approach to sanctions does not work for offenders. As a result, a range of punishments has been developed to address the various needs of different offenders.
In your initial response, discuss the role of intermediate sanctions as a punishment alternative within corrections. Begin your response by defining the concept of intermediate sanctions as it applies to corrections. Provide specific examples of different types of intermediate sanctions. Conclude your response by evaluating whether or not you believe intermediate sanctions as they are currently designed are effectively working to rehabilitate offenders.
In your response posts to classmates, evaluate the position taken by the classmate regarding whether or not intermediate sanctions as they are currently designed are effectively working to rehabilitate offenders.

If you disagree, respectfully explain why you take an opposing view, being sure to defend the position you are taking.
