False testimony, exaggerated statistics and laboratory fraud have led to wrongful conviction in several states. Since forensic evidence is offered by "experts," jurors routinely give it much more weight than other evidence. But when misconduct occurs, the weight is misplaced. In some instances, labs or their personnel have allied themselves with police and prosecutors, rather than prioritizing the search for truth. Other times, criminalists lacking the requisite knowledge have embellished findings and eluded detection because judges and juries lacked background in the relevant sciences, themselves.
Prosecutors can sometimes get away with misconduct as it is extremely difficult to prove that misconduct had actually taken place. Often times the prosecutor is viewed as being on the side of justice and as a result it is difficult for the defendant (who is accused of a crime) to turn the tide against the prosecution. Although during the trial both the defense as well as the judge may report a prosecutor for misconduct, this rarely happens as these reports are often dismissed. This is because as long as the prosecutions misconduct does not affect the outcome of the case, then it is tolerated, meaning that a prosecutor can harass a witness or the defendant so long as the harassment did not have anything to do with the outcome of the trial. The fact that the prosecutor works in the interests of the state can be seen as the underlying factor here.
If Barbie does not die Ken can still be hit with a charge for disclosing the fact that he had aids. Ken would probably get hit with intentional transmission which is when you fail to inform your partner that you don't have aids. Theres is also a possibility that Ken wont get charged because the laws are still very blurry when it comes to the transmission of aids. What is Homicide? Homicide is murder but not all homicides are illegal some are considered justified homicide an example of justified homicide is when its done as an act of self defense.
Since Mapp and other significant decisions, innocent people have been subjected to fewer unconstitutional searches, not necessarily because the police fear the exclusion of evidence but because of the potential for civil liability, citizen complaints, and the like. The rules of law decided in Mapp v. Ohio relate to the relevant facts in the fact pattern based on the Fourth Amendment violation. Det. Quickdraw is a representative for the government, but he failed to uphold the law by not following the correct criminal procedure for search and seizure. In conclusion, if I were the judge ruling in this case, I could apply the exclusionary rule and any evidence that was obtained during the unlawful search would not be admissible.
On the other hand, a large amount of states currently permit unlawful accounts to be utilized to reject experienced candidates. This can somewhat be considered crazy due to the fact that the crime may have nothing to do with their ability or skill to perform the current job (Wright,

According to Justice Rehnquist, “double jeopardy should not apply to contempt charges because it is a separate and distinguishable offense, and the elements of contempt are entirely different from the elements of the substantive crimes from which the contempt charges arose.” Justice Blackmun also dissents, noting that Contempt is one of few mechanisms available to a trial court in order to enforce its orders and it should be considered as separate and distinct because it is serving the court’s interest as opposed to that of the government. But not all the justices agreed with the ruling. Concurrence. Justice White concurs, noting that the Double Jeopardy Clause bars prosecution for an offense if the defendant already has been held in contempt for its commission. Justice White goes on to note; however, that all of Foster’s counts on indictment should have also been dismissed.
How do you think Bob Ewell would have been treated had he been the accusED, not the accuser? I think Bob Ewell was treated with a lot more understanding and patience than I would’ve expected from a court because he did use foul language and was not acting like he was in a proper courtroom. The judge ask that, “if that is possible”, he restrain from using bad language, but if he had been the defendant in the case instead of the plaintiff he would’ve been penalized, or at least sworn to act better in the courtroom and show respect for the spectators in the room. Judge Taylor even denied the request of having the spectators, or at least the women and children, exit the courthouse and no longer witness the case because of the non-Christian language.
Application 4: The damages that Resendez experiences are not physical. However, she is probably injured from an emotional and psychological perspective such as anxiety and degradation resulting from the defendant’s detention. Conclusion: Normally the court is unlikely to find Wal-Mart liable for the tort of false imprisonment because the third element does not apply; a reasonable justification was present against Resendez. The defendant was able to provide a valid reason for detaining the plaintiff by considering the peanuts as stolen property. Despite the fact that a justification was identifiable, Salinas has defense options available if the rule was proved otherwise.
Thinking about it more, I realized that hate-crimes legislation doesn't aim to punish the actual crime, but rather the motive (or thoughts) behind it. That's smacks of being more than a little Orwellian to me, besides being something that's very difficult to prove. If someone is continually spouting hateful speech, there's a pretty good chance you can figure out that their motive for a crime might be related to that hate. But what about someone who doesn't give any
