Many business people rely on who they know and not what they know. Martha’s broker Peter was some that made large amount of money doing business with Martha. Peter looked at what he could benefit from helping his friend and business counterpart. Martha has been a money making woman all her life, so making one decision to sell some bad stock cost her to be put in to the public eye as a person who cares only about the well being of maintaining a millionaire status. Martha Stewart was convict on everything but what she went to insider trading.
She was an older lady that just wanted to financially help out friends and family. A gain of only two-thousands dollars certainly does not seem like she was motivated by financial gain. The fact that Griffin committed fraud against the IRS gave her the benefit of a delayed prosecution. These fraudulent tax credit were processed in 2009. It took almost two years to discover the wrongdoings.
But the men that make the false accusations about the young girls are not held accountable for the lies or considered a lawbreaker. I’ve reread this article a few times now and I appreciate her points on how unfair women in our society were treated and think she gave great examples to back herself. Things have definitely come leaps and bounds since that time but there is for sure work still to be done in our society
White-collar individuals are usually already wealthy people who commit crime without getting their hands dirty. These types of criminals use their intelligent minds to embezzle money and get away with it. Corporations do not know that such criminals are apart of their staff. White-collar criminals are usually “well respected in their communities and take part in national affairs” (Schmalleger, 2008). Martha Stewart a businesswoman who is known for her quick tips in making peoples homes a better more stylish place was convicted of lying to investigators about a stock sale
The day after her sale, the stock value fell dramatically (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission). She was convicted of 4 felony counts; of those were obstructing justice and lying to investigators and she served her time of 5 months behind bars from October of 2004 to March of 2005 at Federal Prison Camp, Alderson (Federal Bureau of Prisons, 2004). Alderson happens to be the first federal prison for women, built in the 1920s in West Virginia (Foster, 2006). Alderson Federal Prison is located in two West Virginia counties, near the town of Alderson. The facility itself is a minimum security prison and not for high risk or violent offenders.
This case led to the questioning of whether the legal system is effective for the individual and the community and whether it really brought justice to the victims of crime. A large proportion of society feel let down by the legal system, as a mechanism put into place to protect and bring justice has obviously failed in this case. The fact that serious sex offenders who place a black mark on the well being of victims, both physically and mentally being let off in less than 20 years caused a lot of conroversy. Although it may be argued that 55 years was a harsh penalty and didn’t warrant the crime, the victim’s of the crime received a much harsher sentence, a life of trauma and a constant feeling of alarm. Denele Crozier a Women's Health NSW executive officer asked the question many women had asked after the appeal was established ``How many times do women have to be constantly let down and disappointed by the legal
Bring all your talk in the ring and shut the hell up!. Unsocketing items was a laborious and expensive procedure. That isn to say you are not supporting botting when you buy from the RMAH (Because people sell botted gold there too) but you are almost, for sure supporting it when you buy directly from re sellers.. "Killzone: Shadow Fall" Wow. It has a lot of obvious problems that you can't ignore like awful mission design, a tiny diablo power level bland world to explore, and so so combat. And, remember, all of the toys from the past games work here as well, so you don't have to only look for "Swap Force" branded items.
The members are not aware of any gay or lesbian people living in that area, so they believe it is not necessary to provide such programs. After being denied, L’Toya still believes that she can fight the ruling. So, she began to devise a plan that would get more people involved. L’Toya believed by educating the two members may give her another chance to defend her case. She also believed by getting advocates of a gay rights organization may help her get the right attention she needs to move forward.
Jordan Baker is a cheat and she does not care for anyone else due to the fact that she thinks because she has money nothing else matters like morals and dignity “At her first big golf tournament there was a row that nearly reached the newspapers- a suggestion that she had moved her ball from a bad lie in the semi final round” (62). Jordan Baker had cheated and was almost caught but was relived of the consequences and carried on her life thinking nothing will affect herself because she is privileged; due to this sort of thinking Jordan has corrupted the American dream. Also Jordan has no regard for others. Jordan once again lies about how she is careful “I am careful.’ ‘No, you’re not.’ ‘Well other people are’ What’s that got to do with it?’ ‘They’ll keep out of my way’ ‘It takes two to make an accident’ “(63). Jordan does not care for others and makes excuses for what she is doing; this shows how Jordan has no regard for the American dream
Shame is a major factor in work like this. No one wants to be known as the prostitute or even ex prostitute. Nonprofits give out small dollar amounts to the girls, but the pimps and tricks give out over ten times that amount to the girls, making the probability of reform slim. There is a term that the Non Profit, child homelessness organization Stand Up for Kids uses: Survival Sex- when a teen trades sex in exchange for food, clothing and shelter. That was a term I would have learned to live without.
