Abstract: Each case has the basic elements taken from actual records and is presented in the format currently in use throughout most probation, parole, and corrections agencies in the United States. Wherever possible the style of the officer writing the report has been retained. Crimes are dealt with only in their generic identity. Specific degrees of crimes have been omitted deliberately. Only the most frequently seen felonies are dealt with. Discretionary release from prison operates within a framework of adjudicated guilt. Chapter 1 describes six cases involving murder, multiple felony offense, violent felony offender, attempted murder, and murder by a juvenile offender. Chapter 2 deals with robbery, attempted robbery, burglary, and violation of parole. Chapter 3 presents cases involving manslaughter, sexual assault, and vehicular assault. Chapter 4 deals with sex crimes such as rape, sodomy, and sexual abuse. Chapter 5 focuses on a kidnapping case. Chapter 6 presents three assault cases.
