Within the due process one may not be treated cruel, unfair or be given unreasonable treatment. Every accused person is entitled to fair procedures, and the due process applies to the criminal justice system as the trials, parole hearings, and administrative hearings. Due process main goal is to protect the innocent from being wrongfully convicted but may be looked upon as focusing on the rights of the accused and ignoring the rights of the victims. Crime control model is taken back a little and is the complete opposite of Due Process Model, which the crime control model focuses on the initial arrest, prosecution, and the conviction of a criminal. Due process priorities stand with protecting an
It can also refer to behaviour that impacts a person's ability to control their sexual activity or the circumstances in which sexual activity occurs, including oral sex, rape or restricting access to birth control and condoms. It can happen to men, women and even children. Sexual abuse can happen to anyone at any age. Sexual abuse is one of the most common types of abuse that happens within the UK in "2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12 on average 2.5 per cent of females and 0.4 per cent of males said that they had been a victim of a sexual offence in the previous 12 months. This represents around 473,000 adults being victims of sexual offences (around 404,000 females and 72,000 males) on average per year.
Another group included 40 sex offenders, who induced crimes such as rape, paedophilia and sexual assaults. Their mean age varied from 41 for the paedophiles down to 28 for the other assaults. The last group of 20 had committed property offences involving theft and burglary, their mean age was 29. The procedure involved the use of the ‘Blame Attribution Inventory’, this measured the offender’s type of offence and attribution of blame in three aspects: internal/external, mental element and guilt. The results exposed the sex offenders as feeling the most guilt with a mean score of 12.7, and the violent criminals followed with a score of 8.1.
Justice is the concept of moral rightness based on rationality, natural law, fairness, law, equity, and ethics (Dictionary.com, 2009). Justice to me means giving what that person deserved for what crime they committed or in other terms giving each person their due. I also believe that everyone should be treated the same when being arrested no matter if you are a celebrity or not. There are to many times where celebrities get the easy road and do not even receive any jail time for a crime they have committed. If a regular citizen committed the crime they would receive time in jail for whatever crime in which was committed.
For example, in the article “Should All Convicted Sex Offenders Be Required to Register?” by Josh Farley, the sex offender here was required to register as one for the sexual/mutual relationship he had with a minor while in his 30s. Okay, the child was under 18, but he is not to blame for a sexual relationship that both parties agreed to at the time. I hate to say it, but unfortunately a lot of children make these “grown-up” decisions without understanding the consequences, and to get them out of “trouble” they blame the “other guy”, which in most cases, like this one, the “other guy” is the one who pays because of what laws state. Even though the child knew what was going on and wanted to engage in a sexual relationship with this man, the adult gets charged because the child didn’t want to take responsibility so they used the easy way out and played victim. Of course one may argue, she was 15 and didn’t know what she was doing.
Even though stats say something else, the media automatically portrays the teenagers as the bad guy. Eighty five percent of the murders are done by adults. With titles such as “children having sex” and “killer kids” it is clearly shows why such abuses are the key factors in violence, pregnancy, drug abuse and suicide among teenagers. ) This shows that what people assume to be reality, may in fact be incorrect. But these assumptions again are based off of what society
Personal safety for a website for young people Nowadays, young people from the age of 12 to 18 are constantly victims of different crimes from robbery to murder. A very common problem is cyber bulling or adults pretending to be teenagers and talking to younger girls online on different social websites. There has been a recent article on a young girl that was abducted from her house and was sexually molested by a 30 year old man who has been taking to her on a social website and pretended to be a 17 year old boy. This is because young people do not know or acknowledge the dangers of surfing the web, as they were not told or not educated about it. To prevent these parents should be more vigilant and monitor their children’s access to the web.
The results of a longitudinal study tracked 700 male and female youths over a fifteen-year period. They found that those who as children were exposed to violent television shows were much more likely to later be convicted of crime. All other possible contributing environmental elements such as poverty, living in a violent neighborhood and neglect they were factored out of this study. Researchers also said that media violence can affect any child from any family
Ana Engelbrecht English Professor Dr. Freedman Teen Rape Every two minutes, somewhere in the world, someone is sexually assaulted. Of these approximately 248,00 victims, about 87,000 were victims of complete rape, and 70,000 were victims of sexual assault. Up to 4,315 pregnancies may have resulted from there attacks.
