The purpose of this paper is to induce thought of the legal system. It is also meant to help one reflect on themselves and be guided by their own moral compass. Many beneficiaries have been unfortunate enough to discover that a testator’s steps have failed to comply with the law. In certain situations, failure can sometimes carry a heavy price. A good example of this is the case of the Estate of Saueressig v. Goff.
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.
Court Issues Analysis icycat CJA/394 May 7th, 2012 Professor Christopher Manning Court Issues Analysis With technology changing along with society growing to a new era, the criminal justice system will need to take a good look at past and present trend in order to prepare for the future. The courts system process and court administrators not only face issues in the present. The criminal justice system also has to prepare for future trends regarding management issues, and language interpretation services within their department processes. Another issue to be discussed arising is the bias treatment of offenders of culture diversity, and how the court tends to accidently allow this in the court system process. The third issue to be discussed in this paper is the trend of juveniles in the court system and how changes should be made.
How can not knowing the proper terminology affect you as you conduct criminal justice research? If there is a misunderstanding of previous research, the results could reflect on an officers daily duties; such as, incident reports, investigations, negotiations, interviews, and interrogations. Researchese is a language of research that includes concepts and variables to represent operationalization and hypotheses in research. * If common terminology is not understood completely, it would be difficult to understand data collection regardless of how it was collected. To both understand research and conduct new research is it vital that each person involved understands the terminology associated with research and research techniques.
It also restricts or prohibits the use of certain evidence in sexual offense cases. Conclusion It is important to know the terminology of research in criminal justice because you will have to read reports and if you do not understand what is being written you cannot effectively do your job. Effective research can assist with opening or closing of cases. Using incorrect terms or incorrect information in research can be harmful to the outcome of the question or situation at hand. The credibility of evidence relies often on the handlers, examiners, experts and presenters.
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.
Sometimes people feel the defendant has too many rights and has more benefits, which could help them get away with criminal activity. All these points are valid, but they are forgetting about the rights of people and what they stand for. I would think people would want defendants to be punished fairly and not have an opening, where they could possible get their case dropped because of something illegal done on the prosecution or law enforcement
When conducting research for an essay or for a new business proposition the researcher must have evidence that supports their writing from sources that can back up their proposed ideas. If an information source cannot provide sources and substantial corroborating evidence, then the research needs to move on to a new source. Another way I might consider information to be incorrect is if it conflicts
Debates about punishment are important in their own right, but they also raise more general problems about the proper standards for evaluating social practices. The main part of this theoretical overview of the subject of legal punishment concentrates on these issues of justification. That discussion is preceded by an analysis of the concept of punishment and is followed by a brief account of how theories for justifying punishment can relate to decisions about the substantive criminal law and criminal procedures. The concept of punishment Punishment is not an exclusive province of the law. Parents punish their children, and members of private associations punish their wayward fellows.
Some of the new terminologies obtained from studies in the criminal justice profession are terms such as “Research shock, researchese, concepts, operationalization, dependent and independent variables, theories, and hypothesis (Hagan, p. 15). Research shock -a sense of disorientation experienced by a person when suddenly confronted with an unfamiliar style of presentation and research language (Hagan, p. 15). Most careers have their own terminology primarily known and spoken only by the professionals in it. The term “research shock” describes people who are unfamiliar with the different types of jargon or ideology spoken by other professionals. Researchese (the language of research) is a valuable international language and a useful tool for negotiating and understanding
