Discussion prompt
The focus of the criminal justice system and scripture sometimes align but not always. Sometimes there are “competing perspectives” in the criminal justice system but there are certain “Biblical Perspectives,” as well, one of which is restorative justice.
Restorative justice focuses on restoring the victim by making the offender compensate the victim for the wrong and adding some punishment. Numbers 5:6–7 highlights this principle very well. “Say to the Israelites: ‘When a man or woman wrongs another in any way and so is unfaithful to the Lord, that person is guilty and must confess the sin he has committed. He must make full restitution for his wrong, add one fifth to it and give it all to the person he has wronged” (NIV 1984). There is also a secondary emphasis of reintegrating offenders back into society.
However, the topic of this course is Criminal Procedure. By nature, criminal procedure is “rights-based.” This is because much of the law comes from the Constitution, which was drafted to enumerate the powers of government. This limits government behavior to only those listed powers, but the Constitution also clearly lays out some rights (but not all) of states and citizens, particularly certain criminal procedure rights. As such, it can be said that criminal procedure focuses on the offender’s rights and government behavior.
Based on your practical and educational experience, what is the focus of the criminal justice system, restorative justice, or criminal rights? Give specific examples. Can these seemingly competing perspectives be better harmonized?

Article III of the U.S. Constitution states “The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office.”

HIS 320/ Annotated Bibliography
DUE: Sunday, July 3rd by 11:59pm
Instructions:
An annotated bibliography is a bibliography of the sources you intend to use to contextualize the themes from the crime/trial you identified in your Trial Summary assignment. Your assignment must contain 2 scholarly secondary sources (academic journal articles and/or books). A secondary source is a source that has been written recently but is about the time period of your trial. An example would be an article written in 2004 titled “Abortion during the Progressive Era”. If the source was written during or around the time of your trial than it is a primary source and may not be used. Your source must also be scholarly, meaning from a peer reviewed journal or published by a university press. You may not use any articles from periodicals or newspapers. You should use your trial themes and time period to begin your search. If you need assistance in using the John Jay Library electronic databases, I recommend contacting a reference librarian.
For each source you locate to help you contextualize your trial, you must give the bibliographic citation and a brief annotation. The annotation should contain the following information:
A brief overview of the source.
An argument summary of the source.
How the source will assist you with your research question.
Two quotes or paraphrases which will assist you in contextualizing your trial.
This assignment will serve as a reference for you as you begin to build your thesis statement and paper outline for your draft.
Requirements:
Length: 2 sources total. Entries should be anywhere between 200 to 250 words for each source, not including the quotes.
Format: 12 pt. Each source is single-spaced, with a double-space between each source. The sources should be alphabetized according to author’s last name.
Citation Style: The citations must be in Chicago format. Use the Chicago tip sheets in the “Written Assignments” section.
