Due Date: 11:59 p.m. EST, Sunday of Unit 1 Points: 100 Overview: This unit looks at how we perceive things based on our ethical background and culture. We understand there is a right and wrong way to do things. Using your thought process and professional ethics, analyze the scenario in criminal justice. Instructions: Scenario: You are working with a juvenile probation agency. One weekend, you are out with friends in a downstairs bar frequented by college students. To your surprise, you see Sarah, a 16-year-old probationer, dancing. In watching her, you realize that she is drunk and, in fact, is holding a beer and drinking it while she is dancing with a man who is obviously much older than she is. You go over to her, and she angrily tells you to mind your own business and immediately leaves with the man. Later she comes back into the bar and pleads with you to keep quiet. She is tearfully apologetic and tells you that she already has had several violations of her probation and at the last hearing was told that if she has one more violation, she will be sent to a juvenile detention center. You know that Sarah has been doing much better in school and plans to graduate and even go to college. Read the case study found in the textbook in Chapter 1, page 22, situation 4. Pollock, J.M.
