Tavion’s father also put on the note that he was divorced and that his mother was not allowed access to their son’s medical records for any reason. Tavion’s mother showed up at Methodist Hospital that following weekend wanting copies of her son’s medical records and that she suspected that Tavion’s father was physically abusing their son. Tavion’s mother’s statement of suspecting that the father was physically abusing the son is sufficient to warrant a further investigation by the hospital. If the documentation was done fully and clearly and with the necessary detail than those officials that are performing the investigation will see that the story the father told them about Tavion and how he got hurt did not make sense, and that they were suspecting that it was physical abuse as well. And the parents, regardless of relationship status, should have the right to access their child’s records, especially when my other patient is suspected of child abuse.

At the sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Portway's attorney, Richard Sweeney, said his client was "sick" and should be punished, but added that he had only "immersed himself in a world of fantasy on the Internet" and never intended to carry out any plans to harm children. Portway, wearing a brown prison uniform, glasses and white sneakers, did not speak during the sentencing. He was sentenced to 320 months in prison, and will be deported to the UK after he completes his term. He was also ordered to pay $3,000 each to five unnamed victims whose images were found on his

Defenses and Due Process Kylee Rivers CJS/220 Defenses and Due Process According to Gardner and Anderson (2011), an individual is only charged for a crime he/she committed intentionally. He suggests that such a crime must be without defense so that an individual is declared guilty. Defenses are situations that can stop or lessen the guilt in a case. Presentations of evidence for such situations ensure an accused person is defended from guilt. According to Gardner and Anderson (2011), the common elements of defense include insanity, entrapment and self-defense.
According to, The National Association of School Nurses, corporal punishment is defined as, “intentional infliction of physical pain as a method of changing behavior. This can include hitting, shaking or slapping, either with a hand or with an object, such as a paddle or belt. Corporal punishment becomes abuse if it causes injury to the child” (NASN). In one case, Taylor Santos, a high-school sophomore at Springtown High School, opted to take a spanking rather than serve another day in school suspension. However, she was left bruised badly blistered after her male vice-principal spanked her.
The presiding judge during trial found out that Apprendi fired shots to a neighboring house as threats to leave the neighborhood. As the judge’s final decision and consideration of Apprendi’s actions to be a hate crime gave the judge notion of a severe sentence in prison.

A judge imposing sentencing must not consider facts unable to provide to the jury is against the federal
One fourth of these (26.3%) are serving a sentence of life without parole.Life sentences in America today stand at an unprecedented level: as of 2012, 159,520 people in prison were serving a life sentence and 49,081 (30.8%) of them have no possibility for parole. Nationally, one in every nine people in prison today are serving a life sentence (Hugo 132). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) stated, “Life without parole provides swift, severe, and certain punishment. It provides justice to survivors of murdered victims and allows more resources to be invested into solving other murders and preventing violence. Sentencing people to die in prison is the sensible alternative for public safety and murdered victims’ families” (ACLU Hill vs
