    Abstract

    The three-fold purpose of criminal law and the criminal justice system is to protect the citizens of our country from the harmful acts of their fellow citizens; to provide a just, appropriate, efficient, and effective mechanism for responding to those anti-social acts which may occur; and to provide rehabilitation as well as punishment for offenders. Today in the United States it is clear that the law is not accomplishing its purpose.
