Written by a scholar with extensive research experience, this book applies an original approach to assessing criminal justice policies, based on their impact on errors of justice. The study covers the error of failing to bring offenders to justice as well as the errors of imposing costs on innocent people and excessive costs on offenders. Ultimately, it develops a new framework for each major sector of the justice system: policing, prosecution, adjudication and the jury, sentencing and corrections.

Book Description:

Written by a scholar with extensive research experience on the ground, this book takes a fresh new approach to assessing criminal justice policies, based on their impact on errors of justice: both the error of failing to bring offenders to justice and the errors of imposing costs on innocent people and excessive costs on offenders. The book borrows from principles of error management in statistical inference and the simulation of quality control processes to develop a new framework to each major sector of the justice system: policing, prosecution, adjudication and the jury, sentencing and corrections.

Book Description Cambridge University Press, 2003. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. In this book, Brian Forst takes a fresh new perspective on the assessment of criminal justice policy, examining the prospect of assessing policies based on their impact on errors of justice: the error of failing to bring offenders to justice, on the one hand, and the error of imposing costs on innocent people and excessive costs on offenders, on the other. Noting that we have sophisticated systems for managing errors in statistical inference and quality control processes and no parallel system for managing errors of a more socially costly variety - on matters of guilt and innocence - the author lays the foundation for a common sense approach to the management of errors in the criminal justice system, from policing and prosecution to sentencing and corrections. He examines the sources of error in each sector, the harms they impose on society, and frameworks for analyzing and reducing them. Contents Preface 1. The problem 2. Errors of due process 3. Errors of impunity 4. Frameworks for analyzing the incidence of justice errors 5. Assessing the cost of justice errors 6. Standards of evidence 7. Police-induced errors 8. Prosecution policy and justice errors 9. The jury 10. Sentencing and corrections 11. Homicide 12. A matter of legitimacy Bibliography. Printed Pages: 270. Seller Inventory # 12286
