ASSIGNMENT: The criminal justice system in the United States is made up of three major components: law enforcement, courts, and corrections. As a criminal contact/case progresses through these stages, discretionary decisions are made that impact the outcome and/or progression of the contact/case.

This discussion will occur through a written essay
