In recent years, the strain on the court system and custodial systems has resulted in various community-based diversion alternatives for offenders. Research various diversion alternatives and develop an essay, either pro or con, on the topic of diversion. Consider questions such as whether diversion should be used or if it ethical to allow some offenders to avoid the formal system while others are put into the system.
The paper must include 3 references (outside the course text), with at least one reference from a peer-reviewed/scholarly academic journal (highlight in bold type the titles of the peer reviewed articles in the reference list). You should avoid writing in first person. All papers must be in .doc, pdf, or .rtf format.
The length of each essay should be a minimum of 2 full double-spaced pages of meaningful discussion (title page and reference page do not count as part of those pages). You must adhere to APA style (although you will not be required to provide an abstract). Your work should be double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font, with 1-inch margins all around.
