I kind of like Turkey. Any reason we couldn't make a probationer walk from the bar where he was drinking to his home as a condition of probation? Maybe twice a year? I think that might be rehabilitative in nature.
Well, I spent 6 years in England as the head of 2 Air Force legal offices, and a full-time British civil servant worked in my office as our police liaison officer. I can assure you there is no "mandatory" sentence given out to every drunk driver in England. One of the worst aspects of the judicial system in England is its pansy-dansy leniency with almost all criminal offenders. In magistrate's court, the magistrates seemed to apologize for sentencing the hoodlums to miniscule sentences.
I also spent 7 years in Turkey (4 separate assignments) and part of my job was to get our guys out of Turkish police stations and Turkish jails for DWI, traffic accidents, etc. I always had at least one Turkish attorney who was a full-time, US employee. Again, in 7 years, I never heard of a forced 20 mile hike. I won't say it never happened, but if it did, it was an exception.
Ok, so the list is probably a figment of someone's imagination but what would you choose as the most appropriate punishment? Of course, the list is not intended to be exhaustive; it's just illustrative of some of the possible options.
