You have chosen to avoid me and bring me to court without any warning, “where the law requires one to bring those who are in need of punishment, not instruction.” In this clarification from the Apology Socrates is stating that he is not persuading others to become evil. He is not converting others into wickedness. Why would he put himself into a situation that will harm him? If he is corrupting the youth he is doing it without the intention of harming others or himself. It was his accuser’s responsibility such as Meletus to approach him about the matter and warn
Using this analogy of the criminal or civil court makes it easy to understand that philosophical arguments are not meant to become court room brawls. Respectful demeanor is expected of all those involved and at all times. Intimidation or threats of physical force are out of the question in these circumstances. Even though emotional investments on the sides may be strong to let emotion over come reason would not work in one’s favor. Contempt of court would be a judgment made of any violation of the court’s rules and
Prior to appointing counsel, what needs to be read out loud in open court? I think that the charges against the accused nee d to be read, a formal arrangement where the judge read the charges and informs the defendant of his/her rights. 2. What choices does Judge Fletcher have in appointing counsel for Slick Martin? He can appoint a public defender to Martin, which he doesn’t have to pay for or appoint counsel where he can pay
It is not considered jury tampering because the prosecution and defense attorneys have the right to know the credibility of the person that would be deciding the fate of the defendant. Why or why not? The only way that I would see it being jury tampering is if after the jurors are chosen, someone starts threatening or trying to coerce the witness to not testify at the trial. Lawyers can also exercise a challenge for cause claiming the juror could not be
But that obligation is on the officer, not on you. Nothing in this section purports to create any obligation on you to assist in that “attempt .. to determine” your status, to answer any questions, to carry or produce or display ID, or to consent to a search for evidence of identity or immigration status. Since the police are under this obligation only when they are in “lawful contact” with you, the first thing you can do is not to consent to any contact with law enforcement officers, and to terminate any such contact as soon as possible by walking away immediately unless you are expressly forbidden or physically restrained from doing so. Once you are no longer in lawful contact with an officer, they need a new lawful basis to establish any new contact. Most of the misunderstanding of the law comes from the provision quoted above that “A person is presumed to not be an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States if the person provides to the law enforcement officer or agency any of the following” identity
Keep work emails for work. Meetings Yes No Meetings are a thing of life. You have to attend them if requested (unless you have a valid reason for not attending.) Be prepared for meetings to go over time – and – be prepared … jot down questions whilst in meeting so that if you are in doubt with anything that has been said, you will be able to effectively ask these things when the time is right Tasks you should have delegated Yes Yes Don’t take on too much of a work load. Only take on what you can handle Procrastination and indecision Yes Yes Have a plan for the day and work to achieve it.
Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty (Policecodes, 2012). •I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities (Policecodes, 2012). •I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith,
If they told the truth, I had them. If they lied, I had them. I don’t relish the idea of embarrassing law enforcement officers in open court, but my hope was that they would lie. If a jury sees a cop lie on the witness stand, then the case might as well end right there. You don’t have to appeal a not-guilty verdict.
I would think that if a judge knowingly accepts a plea agreement knowing that the defendant is not admitting that he or she is guilty, and does not believe that the defendant is taking the plea out of an admission of guilt should not agree to the plea. At least with a trial a person has the
