Running head: Armington / Double Jeopardy Armington / Double Jeopardy Paula Ahl Kaplan University LS311: Business Law 1 Professor Allen January 20, 2013 Armington / Double Jeopardy In the case of Armington who while robbing a drugstore, shot and injured Jennings, the drug store clerk, was convicted in criminal court of armed robbery and assault and battery. Later Jennings filed a civil tort suit against Armington for damages. Armington stated that according to the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution he could not be tried again for the same crime because this would be double jeopardy. As stated in our text “double jeopardy is defined as being tried twice for the same criminal offense” (Miller & Jentz, 2008). However, prohibition against double jeopardy does not preclude the crime victim from bringing a civil suit against that same person to recover damages (Miller & Jentz, 2008, pg 137).
Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder and two lesser offenses in the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, when his body was found near Hernandez’s house. The Incriminating Evidence in the arraignment, were text messages from Hernandez and a supposed surveillance tape from Hernandez's home of Hernandez holding a gun while saying "You can't trust anyone anymore" before getting in his car to pick up Lloyd were described as crucial pieces of evidence. Also central to the case is apparent surveillance footage and the curious deletion of certain footage from Hernandez's house, as well as statements from witnesses who saw Hernandez as angry with Lloyd. Although prosecutors have apparently not found the gun used to kill Lloyd, the prosecution has Hernandez linked to a shell casing that matches the caliber of bullet used to shoot Lloyd. The link was through a piece of bubble gum that purportedly Hernandez chewed and was found next to the casing.

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.
