He survived, but was given 20 years for the stabbing. ❑ Finally, Clarence Norris was sentenced to death, but the sentence was revoked. Norris violated his parole in 1946 and fled to Brooklyn, New York where he stayed until 1976, when he came back to Alabama and received a pardon. What I want to know is why one boy can be set free and another can receive a death sentence for the same alleged crime. If they were white men, they would never have been accused for this crime.
Running Header: STOP THE INCARCERATION AND START THE REHABILITATION 1 Stop the Incarceration and Start the Rehabilitation Amber Pritt English 215 Professor Dorothy Hoerr December 8th 2013 STOP THE INCARCERATION AND START THE REHABILITATION 2 Abstract About 9,700 American prisoners are serving life sentences for crimes they committed before they could vote, serve on a jury or gamble in a casino - in short, before they turned 18. More than a fifth have no chance for parole. Juvenile criminals are serving life terms in at least 48 states. The increased prosecution of juveniles in adult court is another failed “get tough” policy which is excessive and harmful to children and does nothing to increase
If the Florida HIV laws are outdated, then the diagnosis of an HIV infection is no longer tantamount to a death sentence. 1. In 1997, Florida passed a law that makes it a felony for someone who is HIV positive to engage in any form of sexual intercourse without providing the partner with that information. 2. Failing to inform your partner that he/she is HIV positive with whom you are having sexual relations with in the state of Florida results in being charged with first degree murder.
 Arrested a month before his 16th birthday, he was tried and convicted as a minor. By law, this meant that he would be released and his criminal records sealed as soon as he turned 21.  Price bragged that he would "make history" when he was released.  The case led to changes in state law to allow juveniles to be tried as adults for serious crimes, but these could not be applied retroactively to Price.  Due to the brutality of his crimes and the opinion of state psychologists that he
Vincent Flores Phil102 Mon/Wed 11-12:20 The Death Penalty The state of California is having difficulty deciding whether or not to keep the death penalty. Currently there are 714 people on death row; yet, California has only executed 13 people since 1976.California officials cannot deliver what they are sentencing considering the number of people on death row in comparison to how many death sentences are made each year. Last year, 78 death sentences were given by California's court systems compared to the 315 that were given in 1996, Dieter explained. For instance, The Green River Killer, Gary Leon Ridgeway, was sentenced to California's death row for murdering 48 women and throwing their bodies into the Green River. The Author supports their position by stating, “What we refuse to accept is the severity of the crimes the individuals on death row have committed.
The first case was heard in Scottsboro, Alabama in three rushed trials (Linder). The defendants received poor legal representation. Seven of the nine Scottsboro Boys had been held in jail for over six years without trial by the time jury selection began in the third trial of Clarence Norris on Monday, July 12, 1937 (Linder). They were all convicted of rape and sentenced to death, except for Roy Wright. The case was appealed because of the American Communist Party.
The Comparison Between Prison and Slavery by John Dewar Gleissner The fairly new term, "mass incarceration," means that the U.S. has 2.2 million prisoners, more than any country in the world. A greater percentage of the U.S. population is in prison than in any other nation. The U.S. has 5% of the world's population and almost 25% of the world's prisoners. The entire U.S. correctional population, including those on probation, on parole and awaiting trial, is about 7.3 million Americans. These eye-popping numbers came about for many reasons: mandatory minimum sentences, three-strikes legislation, illegal drugs, gangs, immorality in all its modern forms, the war on drugs, the decline of marriage and families, high rates of recidivism, incarceration of the mentally ill, the decline of capital punishment, problems with the criminal justice system and all the forces pushing tough crime policies.

Chaney was conscious of the severity of his acts, saying the habit was an addiction, and when he was arrested in October of last year, he even apologized for his acts. He told reporters quote, "I know what I did was probably one of the worst invasions of privacy someone could experience…And these people don't have privacy to begin with. And I was in that little sliver of
