He also said in his statement that he had beaten the victim with a shoe, and the autopsy shows nothing of the sort. He could not describe the knife that was used to stab the victim in fact he had no idea she was even stabbed. Four months later Daniel Williams receives his results for the DNA testing and they are negative. Since Daniel confessed to something, he was still held responsible and the police closed the investigation. Months later, Unexpectedly Joe Dick, Daniel William’s roommate is now suspect number two.
As a result of this he just got life in prison WITH a chance of parole. This is in just because it was a horrible event, he didn’t get what he deserved, and it allows others to get away with the idea of doing wrong without being fully punished. Without a doubt, you should consider this an act of injustice. To begin with, the Charles Manson case was a situation of injustice because it was a horrible event. To further explain this event, Charles Manson was a leader of a colt.
Ignored Obligations - Defense Attorneys Some Obligations that go ignored or unattended to by defense attorneys vary, thinking of how an innocent man or woman can go to prison for a crime he or she did not commit. Because of an attorney failing to do his or her job, results in a drastic injustice, not only from the wrongfully convicted but also within the Justice System. Denial of Due Process As a citizen Due Process is to have fair treatment within the justice system, and to have a denial of one’s Due Process can result in an injustice to the defendant, and the victim as well as the Justice System itself. Denying ones Due process includes: * Ignoring regulatory and statutory guarantees * Not following the rules and procedures * Ignoring the civil rights and
OJ had written a book called "If I did It" Where he lays out how he would have committed the murder. Why would anyone even want to write a book about the crime if you really had nothing to do with it? Simpson is protected by double jeopardy, he can't be put on trial for the crime again. He pretty much confessed everything about the crime in the book, but the cops can’t do anything about it now. The problem that made the prosecution lose the case was the fact that the police mismanaged the evidence and made the jury have enough doubt not to convict OJ
He was committed to Central State and stayed there until 1968, when he was found fit to stand trial. He was charged with first degree murder, but his lawyer put in the defense of insanity again and was found to be insane again. He returned to Central State. On November 7, 1968, Bernice Worden’s murder trial began. A jury found Gein guilty of first degree murder but criminally insane at the time of the murder, the trial lasted only a week and he was sentenced to life in a mental institution.
Bryan James B. Apostol PS1013 Clyde Shelton witnesses the murder and rape of his wife and daughter at the hands of Clarence Darby and his accomplice Rupert Ames. During their trial, prosecutor Nick Rice informs Clyde that DNA evidence incriminating Clarence has been deemed inadmissible due to botched forensics because, according to Nick, the actions of the police at the crime scene affected its solidity in court, and that Clyde's testimony alone is insufficient to prove either suspect's guilt. Nick, interested in maintaining his high conviction rate, strikes a deal: Clarence gives testimony that will send Rupert to death row, and in exchange Nick allows Clarence to plead guilty to third-degree murder, for which he will only serve three
American Translation– This law means if you blame someone for a crime you have to arrest them, if you can’t prove they committed the crime, you will be executed. I think this law is bad because it’s wrong, If you blame someone for something and you really think they did it arrest them, yes, but if you can’t prove they committed the crime or have no evidence that they did it then set them free and try to find more evidence that the first person committed the crime, there’s no need to put a person to death because they can’t prove that someone
For example, “an insane murderer might slit another human’s throat, but in his reality he is slicing bread.” Now another approach to a criminal thought process is a criminal by chopping a human head and finding it funny for the victim to go looking for it.” I justify my first example by Einstein’s definition of insanity; “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%27Naghten_rules).” My second example coincides with insanity, because under the Manchester Rule; “a person is not responsible for criminal conduct if at the time of the offense, the criminal conduct is the result of mental disease or defect, and the person lacks substantial capacity to appreciate wrongfulness of his conduct or to conform his conduct to the requirement of the law.” This rule explains why Rodion Raskolnikov is not mentally insane; he was simply guilty even before the
After many appeals, in 2007, DNA evidence technology that was used proved that none of the DNA at the crime scene matched any of the three defendants. There was a hair found linked to the step father of one of the children, which was found in the knots of the rope used to bind one of the other boys (not even his own step son). Some of the country’s leading pathologists have presented evidence that the wounds found on the children were primarily the result of post mortem animal bites, and not knife wounds, as prosecutors originally believed. Juror misconduct was also uncovered in the case, which revealed that Jessie Misskelley was coerced into making a confession that was not
All I know is this is not going to be about a referral. “Please, take a seat” he says as he motions to the chair in the corner of the very small office room. As I look around when I walk in I see that Deputy Eckhardt is in there too. “Well Kyle, I’m going to get straight to the point here and if you tell me as little as one lie, I will personally take you down and put you in DDC for mandatory 13 days.” DDC was our detention center for teens in the downtown Jacksonville and holds juveniles for petty theft all the way to murder one. Right when he said this I knew I was in trouble and was going to have to do some serious talking to try and get out of this one.
