For this week, define, describe, and discuss the range of legal rights that prisoners have. Be sure that you cite legislation and major court cases. (HINT: feel free to do a bit of outside research that might include treaties and ACA standards). In addition, define, describe, and discuss how correctional officers have discretion that mirrors that of police officers and court personnel? Finally, what do you think are the biggest ethical issues surrounding corrections? Do you think prisoners should have more of less rights than those not incarcerated. Why?
