Rodney King had reached a settlement worth 4 million dollars and later on two of the four officers were sent to prison and the other two were acquitted. In TKAM Tom Robinson was sentenced to prison for alleged rape and was sentenced for death. Tom Robinson’s trial wasn’t really a fair one because the whole jury was twelve white men which were biased toward the victim. Tom Robinson was sent to a local prison house to be detained until he goes to the federal prison but he escaped that night and was shot by one of the officers in charge there while he was running. Tom Robinson’s case was an example of injustice due to the fact that the jurors had not gathered any evidence that proved Tom Robinsons guilt, Atticus had proved the court wrong but that was not enough for a racist and biased group of jurors to allow Tom Robinson to leave freely.
He would lure people, mainly women, inside this castle and torture and kill them there. Holmes was arrested in 1894 for life-insurance fraud.

However, some estimates are said to be as high as 230 victims.
This essay will describe and assess Gary Leon Ridgway’s story, from childhood to his darker days. Robert Hare’s theory of crime and psychopath categories will be taken into consideration and used to more appropriately understand the man dubbed the Green River Killer. At the end of this essay, whether or not Gary Ridgway can be classified as a primary, secondary, or dissocial psychopath. Gary Ridgway began murdering women in the 1980’s and continued into the 1990’s, he murdered so many that his court statements state that he had lost count (Guillen, 2006). The majority of the murders took place between 1982-1984 (Guillen, 2006).
Rex was in trouble again for stealing two cars and received a three-year sentence to a Correctional Institution in Cottonwood, Idaho. Again while in prison Rex stayed out of trouble, but did not seek any help for his many problems. I think this is one of Rex Krebs major downfalls, because of what you taught us in class this semester, if you catch these problems early the better off you are at any kind of treatment. In 1987, after serving three years behind bars, Rex Krebs was released. His mother called him to see if he wanted to live with her and her new husband.
Graham was convicted of murder in 1987, after 14 yrs of wrongful imprisonment; the state gave Graham a £10 check and a coat that was 5 times too big. Whereas David Williams, Pride of the Canadian forces, Williams was set free, until further digging found that he had murdered and assaulted many women, he was finally convicted, after writings and photographic records were found. Additional research has found that accents can affect whether the defendant is seen as innocent or guilty. Mahoney and Dixon (2002) found that `Brummies` were more likely to be found guilty of armed robbery than cheque fraud compared to a defendant with a posh accent. Race of the defendant and jury`s play a massive part in the courtroom.
Decided January 22, 1973. Facts Hitchcock appeals his conviction by a jury of six counts of presenting fraudulent income tax refund claims to the Internal Revenue Service. He was already serving a life term for murder in the Arizona State Prison when he committed these tax offenses for which he received six concurrent five year sentences to run consecutively to his life sentence.

He contends that his Fourth Amendment right was violated by the warrantless search and seizure in his prison cell.
On April 20, 2012 Chedwin Evans; 23 year old professional soccer player was convicted of rape. On October 17, 2014 Evans was released from prison after being sentenced five years; having only served half of the sentence.Though he was found guilty, many believe that wasn’t the case especially with the evidence presented. He and others hope for him to gain a position back on the field, thousands have even signed a petition in favor of him returning to professional soccer. I believe Chad Evans is innocent and should definitely be able to return to play soccer once again because when the complainant testified, she told police and court that she did not remember anything from that night; just being at the night club and waking up the next morning in the Premier Inn. Sexual activity is something you would feel if it occurred.
Tupac had a rough childhood growing up, he really had no role model growing up other than his mother. For example, his godfather “Geronimo Pratt” was sentenced to life in prison for murdering a school teacher, right before his birth (Tupac Shakur Biography 2). His stepfather Mutlulu a man who was very present during his childhood he had been sentenced to sixty years in prison for armed robbery in 1988. He stepfather was also on the F.B.I’s top ten most wanted list for several years. Due to the people he was surrounded by much of Tupac’s Philosophies reflected on the Black Panther lifestyle (1).
In January of this year, a judge in Luzerne County, Pa., was forced to acquit a man charged with homicide and first-degree murder in the death of a 1-year-old, and declare a mistrial on a number of other counts, after the court found out a juror had independently done online research about injuries sustained by the victim, and possibly offered to share her knowledge with the other jurors.” Imagine letting this happen to thousands of felons and then granting them freedom that they don’t deserve, just because jurors are careless. They are sworn to "to base your verdict solely upon the evidence” which they are not doing and are apparently taking the cases into their own hands and looking for other evidence that most likely is not
