Review the American Correctional Association’s Code of Ethics (Links to an external site.) then consider the following scenario:
You are a parole officer supervising a federal parolee for tax fraud. One of the conditions of her parole is to not have access to the Internet. The parolee confides in you that after she was arrested, her life fell apart, her husband divorced her, and her family moved across the country. The only thing that keeps her going is knowing one day she will be off of parole and hopefully be able to reunite with her husband and kids. She requests regular access to Facebook so she can visit her family’s page and stay motivated to obey the rules and successfully complete parole. In exchange for this small favor, that parolee offers to provide you tax advice so you can find loopholes in the system and pay fewer taxes.
- As the parole officer in this situation, what would you do?
- Justify your actions based on the ACA’s Code of Ethics.
- With which ethical framework (deontology, virtue, or utilitarianism) are your actions most closely related?
