Reflection Paper #1 tasks you with thoroughly discussing your understanding of Week #2’s course learning material. You are encouraged to pay particular attention to the principles of Due Process, along with the Checks & Balance sentiment relating to the array of applications in the criminal justice arena. Arrest and Bail issues were also presented and discussed. Additionally, the learning segment on the court process surrounding the Arraignment, Trial, and Sentencing processes would all serve as valuable choices to discuss in this assignment. Refer to the assigned chapters in the Fagin text; the contents found in the Reading, Viewing Listening folder; and the PowerPoint presentations in Week #2’s Lecture Material folders for guidance.
Link: If you elect to tie in outside reference material, credit your sources according to the American Psychological Association’s (APA) formatting guidelines. A title page and abstract is not required. Simply start your paper on the top left-hand corner of the page, and indent your paragraphs. Do not list your name, the instructor’s name, the course name, or the date inside the four corners of your paper. The instructor will not deduct points for minor grammatical errors or other relatively minor errors made in good faith; however, your grade will suffer accordingly if your paper does not meet the basic formatting style instructions.
