Choose one of the following criminal justice organizations and scenarios.

You are a District Court Judge recommending the creation of a Drug Treatment Court.
You are the Secretary of Corrections for a state evaluating an early release program to help prevent over-crowding.

With your chosen organization, use credible sources to conduct research on your chosen scenario. Based on your research, provide an analysis of recommendations to effectively and ethically implement that practice. Based on your research, write a 6- to 8-page memorandum summarizing your recommendations. Your memorandum, formatted according to the CSU Global Writing Center, must include each of the following:

Describe the chosen practice in detail. Include a brief history of the use of the practice in other organizations/jurisdictions.
What are the ethical questions involved regarding your practice?  Ensure that you identify them according to each of the ethical frameworks of deontology, utilitarianism, and virtue ethics.

Discuss the challenges and possible barriers to implementing this practice.
Identify and describe in detail all of the stakeholders affected by this practice.
