The judges do all the gathering of evidence and questioning of the witnesses before they decide to vote guilty or not. There are defense attorneys and prosecuting attorneys present at trial. Ultimately the trial is to prove ones innocence because they are automatically considered guilty in the Inquisitorial system. To us here in the United States it would be unfair to presume that someone is guilty right away. We try to give people the benefit of the doubt that they are innocent and it is the burden of the state to prove they are guilty.
On Wednesday, January 30, I was able to observe another English teacher at Helix High School. This time, I sat in on Julie McGuffin’s sophomore Honors English class. During this particular class session, McGuffin’s students were just beginning to draft their first essay—a response to how media influences teenagers. The students started off by watching a 60 Minutes episode about the effects of advertising on teenagers. Earlier in the week, they had read various articles on this topic.
When the jury reaches a verdict of guilty, the judge is responsible for following established legal guidelines during sentencing. If a guilty verdict is appealed, appellate judges are responsible for reviewing the case and determining whether there was any legal misconduct. Federal appellate judges are nominated and appointed by
Over-all this paper is an attempt to adequately explain the jury system of the United States of America and how it affects in terms of the individual juror’s demeanor in court, qualifications, selection, rights and obligations to the court and employment absences of the jurors in the jury system. How the Jury System Works In America The Jury system of America is that mechanism which is made mandatory by law which calls on its citizens to decide on controversies and issues in court cases. This puts the administration of justice in the hands of the people themselves to decide who is guilty and who is innocent. The jury is in fact one of the most important and critical aspects of the American legal system. The United States Constitution and all the state laws in fact guarantee that all citizens are given the right to a jury trial because the American

There is a developing field called Scientific Jury Selection. This is a technique that gauges the likelihood that a juror will vote for conviction or acquittal. Another technique is the use of “shadow juries”. They sit in the courtroom and observe and listen to both sides in a criminal trial. After jury selection the jury is sworn in and the alternate jurors are selected.
In some instances, law enforcement is commonly called to trials as key witnesses to testify for the defense or for the prosecution. The information that law enforcement provides can range from evidence that may have retrieved from the crime scene, how that evidence was discovered, and witness that may have been questioned. This information alone can have a huge impact on how a trial may end, and it provides the jury and judge vital information when determining a defendant’s guilt or innocence. (EHow, 2011) Law enforcement basically offers their expert opinions on the crime in question. They may be asked questions by the judge, defense attorneys and prosecutors as to the location of the suspect when they arrived at the scene, if the suspect cooperated or not, and if anything was found on the suspect at the time of arrest and what was found on them.
Moral Accountability As a Result of Choices Are we as individuals morally accountable for our actions if we are forced to make a choice under duress or extreme conditions? People every day make choices under their own volition. While some decisions seem simple and straightforward, others are more complicated when ethics and morality are of concern. We are ultimately responsible for our actions, however, if we are coerced, intimidated or manipulated into making a decision that is contrary to our belief system, our moral responsibility is negated. What are the motivating factors that affect our behavior and ultimately persuade us to make a moral decision?
