Case study 1 – the goals of corrections

Jonathan Dough, 32 years old, was convicted by a jury of Aggravated Assault. The trial lasted for 2 days. Dough’s defense was that he was too intoxicated to have committed the crime.

Before rendering a sentence, the judge (you) requests a presentence investigation (PSI) be conducted. The PSI reveals the following information:

  • Dough has been married for the past 10 years.
  • Dough has 2 children: a girl (7) and a boy (3).
  • Dough has lived in the same house for the past 12 years.
  • Dough has a bachelor’s degree and is currently enrolled in an MBA program.
  • Dough has had 7 jobs with 7 different employers over the past 10 years. He has never been with the same employer for more than 2 years.
  • When he was 24 years old, Dough was convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI). His conviction resulted in a first-time, nonviolent offender program that included: 6 months of suspended driving privileges, a $250 fine, Safe Driving School, a substance abuse counseling program, and a 1-year probation. Upon successful completion of the program, his criminal record was to be expunged.
  • At 29 years old, Dough was again arrested and convicted of DUI. He was sentenced to 60 days of incarceration (served during 30 weekends), 1 year of suspended driving privileges, a $300 fine, Safe Driving School, a substance abuse counseling program, and a 1-year probation.

With this information, formulate and develop a sentence for Dough that meets 1 or more of the following goals of corrections: rehabilitation, restitution, deterrence, incarceration, or punishment. Then explain why your sentence meets the goals of corrections.
