Following on from this, Gudjohnsson carried out a study involving a case study about a 17 year old boy who confessed to crime and was subsequently imprisoned for one year. Later it was found out that his confession was false and he was not guilty of committing the crime. Gudjohnsson wondered how false confessions can arise. The aim of the study was therefore to document the case of the false confession of a youth who was at the time of the confession distressed and susceptible to interrogative pressure. In 1987 two elderly women were found battered to death in their homes, their savings were stolen and there was evidence of sexual assault.

Said perpetrator was, Joe Davis, already a convicted felon, had seen release from prison only three weaks earlier. Afterwards, Kimber’s father Mike Reynolds met with an informal group of judges, attorneys and law enforcement reps to discuss sentencing practices. This case set the precedent for California’s “Three Strikes and You’re Out” law.

There are three types of offenses that qualify as a strike: Juvenile Offenses, Serious Felonies and Violent Felonies.
For example, there was a “man [who was] sentenced to prison for 25 years to life under the law for stealing a bottle of vitamins” (Murphy). In March 1999, when the Three Strikes law was challenged by this case, the Supreme Court “refused to hear” (Murphy) a word that was said by the people. By putting them in prison for an excessive amount of years, housing for serious offenders is being made unavailable which will lead to an increase “to an already overcrowded and expensive prison system” (Messerli). Some of the people may have committed the innocuous crime to help their spouse and children. When used, the Three Strikes law treats all crimes the exact same way, which makes the law unjust.

After the rise of penitentiaries around 1800, the idea of shaming wrongdoers was replaced by more impersonal forms of punishment such as incarceration (Vedantam, 2006). Shaming was a powerful tool in years gone by and it can be once again if used in the right way. For example, if a criminal is acquitted from his charges then turns around after the trial and all has died down writes a book on the way he or she may committed the crime if they had done it. This was done by O.J. Simpson after he had been acquitted of all charges in the deaths of his ex wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman.
