Abstract:

The researcher was interested in the impact of gender on the imposition of sanctions for misdemeanor offenses in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. After establishing specific criteria, he collected 95 cases from the public file court records. Several statistical analyses were performed with the data which yielded insight on the perceptions of gender in the criminal justice system of a conservative rural county in the US. The data provided interesting theoretical allusions as to the attitudes relevant actors in the criminal justice system have towards the genders. Findings and limitations are discussed at the end of the project.
