· The APPA is an international organization that provides education and training for community corrections practitioners and Supervisors. The APPA establishes standards in all areas of community supervision, including restitution, electronic monitoring, pretrial, conditional early release, and issues related to prisons. Go to https://www.appa-net.org and click on About APPA and then on Where we stand. This area shows position statements, resolutions, and position papers. Research three different topics and the position the APPA has taken on these issues. Report your findings and discuss whether they are politically feasible in today’s economic climate.

· Considering the circumstances provided in the following areas, you are the judge, and you must decide which intermediate sanction or combination of sanctions can be imposed. Jail is not an option, and you must assume that more is needed beyond traditional probation or parole. After you have made your decision, defend your answer.
Case A
John is a 29-yar-old man who has been twice convicted of fraud by forging checks. His first conviction resulted in a sentence of five years on probation with an order to make restitution in the amount of $2,720. He made three payments of $230 each before absconding supervision. He turned up again after six months and was reinstated on probation by the court after he promised to faithfully fulfill the terms of his supervision and to complete his restitution obligation. During his supervision release, he was in violation of probation conditions regularly and never completed his restitution payments. The current case involves John passing a forged check at a local grocery store in the amount of $624. Due to his previous failure and noncompletion of probation, the court is concerned that he is not capable of following court-ordered probation condition, yet it does not want to commit him to state prison or to a jail term. John has a wife and two small children and is their only source of support. He has a high school diploma, he is not mentally ill or disabled, and he is currently employed as a house painter.
Case B
Ricardo is a 23-year-old identified gang member of the Mexican Mafia, a Latino gang with roots in California. He has a history of criminal offenses including shoplifting, one motor vehicle theft, and three DUIs. Ricardo is not assaultive, but the group he belongs to has been known to participate in assault and other violent acts. His file does not include his rank in the gang, but it shows he has been a confirmed member for at least six years. His current offense is larceny, involving theft from his former employer, a local carpet-laying company. The PSI concludes that Ricardo needs more structure than can be gained from probation or intensive supervision, but it does not recommend a prison sentence. The PSI reports that Ricardo needs to learn discipline, good work habits, and respect for the rights of others, and is concerned about his attitude toward authority.

· Mr. Tate is an avid hunter and a member of the local gun club. In his house Tate has all kinds of firearms, which he uses to hunt. One night he had a serious quarrel with one of his neighbors. In a fit of great anger, Tate went inside the house, pulled out one of his guns, and shot and seriously injured the neighbor. This was his first offense ever involving a firearm. Tate was convicted and sentenced to serve five years in a state prison. While in prison, he was a model prisoner, and he was released on parole after only two years. Assume that both state and federal laws provide for Tate to be deprived of his right to own firearms. (a) Should he be allowed all his firearms back? If so, when? If not, why not? (b) What firearm restrictions would you place upon him?
