Beschreibung

Zusammenfassung A study of the effects of mandatory arrest and no-drop prosecution on offenders. It argues that the promise for defeating intimate partner abuse lies in better matching the tactics of state power to the goals of victim empowerment and offender responsibility and to exercise such force through mechanisms that do not exacerbate social inequality.

Autorentext

KEITH GUZIK is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Bloomfield College in New Jersey.

Klappentext

Police departments and states attorneys offices acrross the country have adopted a policy of mandatory arrest and prosecution in cases of domestic abuse in order to safeguard the victim and impress upon the offender that domestic abuse is a serious crime. Arresting Abuse is based on Guziks ethnographic study in a Midwestern county in which he rode along with police officers, observed the mandatory arrest of alleged offenders, attended proceedings at Criminal Court, and interviewed a range of authorities. Guzik concludes that mandatory arrest and prosecution do not, in fact, lead offenders to view themselves as criminals deserving punishment but instead to view their encounter with the law as proof that they are victims of the justice system.
