Simpson case is vital to the study of criminal justice and prosecution being that the restrictions that were obvious in the testimonies of the witnesses and evidence. As a consequence incorrect verdicts were made regarding the case for the reasons that there was evidence that could not be used like the blood samples and the detectives that gave testimonies that were ambiguous. Furthermore, before any case is taken to trial the state and the defense need to be absolutely certain that they have sufficient evidence in order to maintain their case, especially since a case can be dismissed based on the prima facie evidence provided. Studying this case has certainly changed my perspective because it was obvious that more was needed to be accomplished previous to closing remarks were
It may boil down to which attorney wins the heart of the judge, but according to the text it says “the outcome depends on the how the judge decides a reasonable person in the position of the defendant would act in the particular circumstances of the case” (Roger LeRoy Miller, 2010). We know that Mrs. Esposito suffered an injury as a result of the collision. We know that Mr. Davis was the cause of that collision. I think that Mr. Davis did breach his duty of care because “individuals are required to exercise a reasonable standard of care in their activities.” The Reasonable Person Standards the courts use state that “If the so-called reasonable person existed, he or she would be careful, conscientious, even tempered and honest” (Roger LeRoy Miller, 2010). In this case Mr. Davis was neither, careful or conscientious.
Hobson believes that because problems in our life are usually through interpersonal relationships, we should resolve these problems through a therapeutic relationship. The quality of the relationship is crucial for the effectiveness of the therapy. PIT consists of several interlinking components, of which include ‘explanatory rationale’ and ‘staying with feelings’. A potential strength of PIT is that it is just as effective if not more so than current treatments at improving depressive symptoms. Research support comes from Elkin, who found that when compared to CBT, PIT is just as effective at treating depression.
First you have the Prosecution. The responsibility of the prosecution is to prove that without a shadow of a doubt that the defendant committed the crime. Im sure there are times that the prosecution does not think the defendant is not guilty but it is there moral right to keep the trial going and prove their case. It has got to be difficult for the prosecution to know that because of the case they have built against a person could decide the rest of their life. Lets get to the Defense.
Technically, Mickey’s attacks are not spouse abuse, but straightforward assault and battery. The deliberation of rape, another obvious situation in the case, is never addressed. When Francine seeks help from various social agencies, they let her down, advising her to get a lawyer. For some reason, she is unable or unwilling to take this step, and she even shows a reserve at first to deal with her own court-appointed attorney. Her fears are that the law might turn against her, declare her an unfit mother, or otherwise destroy her
With the defendant they get a shot at leniency from the judge. Then there are some that say plea bargaining is unconstitutional. “Plea bargaining rests on the constitutional fiction that our government does not retaliate against individuals who wish to exercise their right to trial by jury.” (Lynch, The Case Against Plea Bargaining, 2003). essentially this means if the defendant believes in their innocence and want to go to trial the will be punished for standing up for their constitutional rights. It is my belief that plea bargaining is an utter necessity, and though it may not seem just at all times; we as a society can see how hectic the court would be if all cases were brought to trial.
But in contrast there are very different at the same time. The crime control model is used in the criminal justice system for the prevention of crime. The crime control does not exclude that is possible to make a mistake, but based on the circumstances of the laws, the person is considered guilty until her or she is proven innocent. This model is based on old fashion laws which allow rapid and speedy convictions despite the mitigating factors of the case and the victim. The results, of the crime control model are wrongful convictions, being over-turned and this is a major downfall in the criminal justice system.
Unless the government is able to prove the existence of these elements, it can't obtain a conviction in a court of law. The due process model is a model of the criminal justice system that stresses that every criminal justice conclusion is built on scrupulous information. Due process stresses the adversarial process, the rights of defendant and the rights of the formal decision-making procedure. It is vital to realize that courts allow individuals to defend themselves based on entrapment, self-defense or insanity. These, however, must be proved appropriately to allow courts practice fairness in defenses.
Any nature of discrimination is unlawful and violates our civil rights and our liberty of privacy. Today’s new concerns are gay rights. Many people are quiet about their sexuality not only because of what others will say but also the consequences they may face with their jobs and American laws. Yoshino gives an example of a young woman who asked for some time away from work for her honeymoon. Most individuals would have no problem with this and her boss did not either until it came to his knowledge that she married another woman.
What’s warrant?” (p.4) | The mother is not educated well. Despite this, she shows more ability than a lot of educated people do. | | “We were all ashamed of our mother. Our mother always did things to shame us.” (p.2)“Oh, the shame.” (p.5)“We tried everything to stop her shaming us all.” (p.) | This story has a repeated motif. It is also an ironic because it is clear from everything else she says that the author is anything but ashamed of her mother.
