One of them was dealing with a mother on drugs. One of them was dealing with his father in jail. They had many problems in school and almost all of them came from broken homes.

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 , I still think the punishment is not enough, Mr.Hutchinson should pay lots of money for his behavior ,even through it can not fix her mental injury . The second Canadian case I find is Mr.Rhodes ,who is 40 years old man, rape a 26 years lady in Manitoba. Mr.Rhode was sentenced to jail for 2 years as second degree murder.Public think the judge did not do his duty and the sentencing is not enough for a rapist. In judge's opinion, woman's choice of clothes and her behavior may give people a bad impression. The 26 years old woman drank too much beers.
Gianna Bianca 04/04/2013 Protecting the Children with Jessica’s Law Every two minutes in the United States, someone is sexually abused. 44% of these victims are under the age of 18 years old (CDC). These statistics are bold, but even worse – these crimes can be prevented. Crimes against children that involve sexual abuse can be prevented in one giant way: by keeping the predators in prison there they belong. This seems like a no brainer, however some judges and members of senate disagree that these illicit crimes are punishable by lengthy sentences and strict court conditions.
/Adrien Ruiz Monday, October 5th 2015 Criminal Law/Sociology Essay #2 Jeffrey Dahmer was a notorious serial murderer. He drugged and raped 17 men, and was convicted on 17 murders. The first sentence was later dropped to 15 due to his not succeeding in the murder of Tracy Edwards. He attempted pleading insanity but it didn’t follow through. The trial was a very short one.
Two days later, on April 28, a story by McAlary ran in The Daily News under the headline “Rape Hoax the Real Crime.” The article instantly conjured memories of the sensational, racially charged case of Tawana Brawley, a black teenager who, in 1987, falsely accused a gang of white men of raping her. (Jane Doe is African-American, and described her assailant as black. He was never caught.) In the ensuing uproar, Police Commissioner William J. Bratton apologized for police leaks that had cast doubt on the woman’s account, which was backed up by undisputed medical evidence, including severe bruising. Undeterred, McAlary, stubbornly recycling a good story — a copycat rape hoax made for a better story than the horror of a real rape — proceeded

Should the Parole System be abolished? Timothy P Ostin 0458935 TESC November 2010 ENC 102-OL014 Research Paper In its current state, the U.S. parole system is flawed and truly causes more harm than good. Abolishing parole is absolutely necessary for the safety and well being of the community of law abiding citizens that inmates are released to live amongst, as well as the best opportunity for offenders to rehabilitate so that reintegration is ultimately more successful. Most people believe that the parole system is not only corrupt, but inherently unjust…making it seemingly contradictory to the foundation upon which the system was initially built, the justice system. While the decision to abolish parole is a controversial one,
These convicted sex offenders cannot live in most Iowa cities and are forced to live in rural areas. If you are a registered sex offender in Iowa it is no different than being in Afghanistan under Taliban rule. Many politicians feel this law is unfair but they don't vote against these laws for fear they will be labeled as unsympathetic for victims of sexual abuse. The majority of citizens are in favor of this law but they don’t know that there are still many sex offenders around them who haven’t been convicted of it yet. This law should be banned because it is very hard for sex offenders to find a place to live, no matter how serious your offence was all sex offenders have to face the same punishment, and it is very difficult to keep track of all these sex
