Legal, Socio-legal, and Extra-legal Factors on Sentencing for Drug Offenses in South Korea

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of legal, socio-legal, and extra legal factors on sentencing of a sample of drug offenders disposed by ten district courts in South Korean six large cities during 1997 - 2001. While there are similarities and differences in criminal convictions and imprisonment for violation of drug laws between the United States and South Korea, this study does not compare American and Korean offenders. Rather it investigates to what extent several variables are correlated with sentencing of drug offenses in Korea. The sample (N=2,456) was drawn from the survey on the official records of investigations and trials which were filed by the police, prosecutor and courts using systematic sampling. The implications of the current research on policy are discussed.
