Turner then attempted to flee the scene, and as the case summary states, the two Swedish students, Carl-Fredrik Arndt and Peter Jonsson, "chased him down and tackled him" (Lombardo, 2016).

The other victim is a young girl whose name was not given, and she was raped at a high school party after getting highly intoxicated. Many witnesses say that they saw her passed out, unable to walk, and even called her a mess during the time. There were various pictures and videos of her posted that night where the statements of the witnesses were confirmed (Strasser,2013). Both victims were taken advantage of and thankfully their rapists were both convicted. The first case was a little more difficult because there’s always going to be an issue with disability and consent.
It’s mind blowing how the justice sentence can convict somebody solely off an eye witness testimony, especially if the eye-witness isn’t accurate. “Eyewitness misidentification is the greatest contributing factor to wrongful convictions proven by DNA testing, playing a role in more than 70% of convictions overturned through DNA testing nationwide.’’ (Eyewitness Misindentification,2017) Immediately after reporting the crime, the victim was taken to a hospital where a rape kit was administered, and swabs were taking from her body. Days after the rape the victim was also shown two photo lineups of suspects, however she didn’t identify anyone. Following the attack, the victim moved from San Antonio to Dallas. The case remained unsolved for a little over a year, that was until Dallas detectives mailed another photo line up to the victim in San Antonio, where she subsequently chose Lindsey as her alleged rapist.
The state crime laboratory reported that, using the FBI DNA database, it had linked a hair to Gregory Allen, a convicted felon who bore a striking resemblance to Avery. Allen was then serving a 60-year prison term for a sexual assault in Green Bay that occurred after the attack on Beernsten. On September 11, 2003, a request brought by the Manitowoc District Attorney’s Office and the Wisconsin Innocence Project to dismiss the charges was granted and Avery was released. In 2005, with support from Beernsten and Avery, the Wisconsin Department of Justice implemented a model eyewitness identification procedure. Unfortunately for Avery, that wasn’t going to be his only bad encounter with justice.

The documentary was released in the United States on July nineteenth of 2013, and it “centers on the 2010 death of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau by Tilikum". Within months before and after the release in theaters and CNN, tensions intensified because of controversies concerning the captivity of killer whales (Gibson; Kirby). Since the move was already shown at the Sundance Film Festival that January, some were already exposed to its content. The viewers reacted by posting their thoughts online. They even began to question SeaWorld by posting those on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites that they have.
One of the women was raped and the other two were assaulted, but escaped before they were raped. Based on the descriptions and the similarities of the attacks, Los Angeles police concluded that the same person committed all three attacks—the victims all were attacked at about 6 a.m. by a man with a knife as they walked to a bus stop. The police soon focused on 29-year-old Luis Vargas because he had a single teardrop tattoo under his left eye. All three victims identified Vargas in photo lineups, although with less than 100 percent certainty. Vargas was arrested on 07/21/1998.
In addition, Hixon had just seen the man walking toward town (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). Ed Johnson was arrested and questioned for three hours, but he told Shipp that he didn’t know anything about the rape (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). That same night, an angry mob attacked the jail where Johnson was thought to be held, but, little did they know, he had been moved to a jail in Nashville for fear of a lynching (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). On January 27, Nevada went to Nashville, where Johnson was identified as the assailant and was indicted for the rape of Nevada Taylor (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). On the day of the trial, Johnson had an alibi, stating he was at the Last Chance Saloon when Nevada was raped, which was supported by many people at the saloon; however, Hixon and Nevada say that Johnson was definitely the rapist (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”).
MILLERSBURG — Referring to her ex as a psychopath who tried to kill her, a domestic violence victim made an impassioned plea Tuesday afternoon for imposition of a prison sentence for her abuser. Ronald E. Morgan II, 39, most recently of 359 ½ E. Bowman St., Wooster, previously pleaded not guilty in Holmes County Common Pleas Court to domestic violence. In exchange for his guilty plea, the state agreed to dismiss a related charge of disrupting public services. The charge is made a fourth-degree felony because Morgan was previously convicted, in 2008, of assault by strangulation. In advocating for Morgan, defense attorney Andy Hyde said, considering Morgan was sentenced to only 40 days in jail, the underlying conviction was not “not as bad as
