Rights of Prisoners

Prepare a paper detailing the differences exhibited between balancing the constitutional rights of prisoners and the functions of the jail or prison. Explain the mandatory rights that prison administrators must provide prisoners and discuss how those rights are balanced with the security, safety, court requirements, visits, and other functions of the facility. Provide an example of where a corrections officer must balance the rights of the inmates with his own daily functions.

The paper must be two to three pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford University Library) in addition to the textbook to support your claims. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page.
