The audience can clearly see what happened on the Kiniakl cause from the court report that is presented. From the Kinakl court case the writer give a lot of emphasis about the non-typical stereotypical criminal story, how the justice was served fairly, and how the court report was biased since the report didn’t actually addressed who Kinakl was and able to create the picture on the audience
The detainees at their two centers are between the ages of 10 and fifteen and they are held in these centers as they await the results of their trails. After the trial results are released, these Juvenile delinquents are passed on to the relevant facilities or released back in to the community. The center works closely with the related systems. For example, the management collaborates with the legal entities to provide the services in the context of the legal regulations in the state of New York and the federal government. For example, the requirements for confidentiality are a function of federal laws while the requirements for relaxation of the environment is a function of the local legislations.
He told Sarah that he wanted to testify but that his attorney advised against it (Episode 9). During the trial Adnan said that, “The prosecution did a masterful job of presenting the facts,” and he also said that Miss Gutierrez did not have a clear outline (Episode 10). Everything was jumbled and she took so long to question witnesses and cross-examine people. Even people on the jury said that “Christina’s strategy was a little lost on them too.” Christina had also been slipping in her work for awhile and kept taking on cases and work that she could not do. She also kept asking her clients for outrageous amounts of money and was not using it for what she told her clients she was going to use it for.
I did not realize how much of a problem those individuals have when it comes to the criminal justice system. The information is very important to the criminal justice system. When looking into the police enforcement, prison system, the court system and even the safety of the community knowing and understanding the basic information with serious mental illness people is very important. The author provides a lot of information in this chapter. The author covers a lot of different aspects when it deals with the serious mentally ill.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the practice of finding the link between one’s thought’s belief’s and actions, and finding an alternative method to intervene with the connection. This effective process has been in place within the Criminal Justice system for many years now. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has many different uses and can be placed in to effect in many different ways. Take the for mentioned Criminal Justice System for example. For many years now the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy process has helped many inmates in the past and present to change their thought process and actions while within the criminal justice system.
Diversion programs have become a prevalent form of justice in the Criminal Justice System. Diversion can be two things; diversion from jail or diversion from the legal system completely. Diversionary programs have been developed in the Criminal Justice System throughout its many levels for a multitude of reasons. Often, they are spurred on by practical concerns including, but not limited to, over-crowded prisons, the high cost of the criminal process, and as an alternative approach to dealing with those suffering from mental illnesses. Diversion may occur both before and after a trial and are aimed at avoiding the trial process (pre-trial) and incarceration (post-trial).
The United States Criminal Justice system has a unique way of approaching and handling criminal trials. In criminal trials there are important court room members with specific roles and certain court room procedures that must be followed. The court room members include the jury, the judge, the prosecution, and the defense. Some of the procedures of a criminal trial are arraignment, preliminary hearing, the trial itself, opening statements, direct examination, cross examination, closing arguments and the verdict. Each court room member’s goal is to fulfill their responsibility and to help justice be served.
With 12 people of different experiences it was extremely hard to get everyone to agree on a verdict due to their opinions. In reality this would be a bit easier as the jurors would take longer to deliver rather than 5 minutes before the end of the lesson. Throughout the trial the defence kept mentioning another case and some luggage I took notes on what they said it but it was very difficult to understand as it was never properly explained. In a real trial as there would be longer to deliver hopefully one person would have the information but this could be aided by having transcripts of the case which is not given in a real
Courts are a major evaluative stage of the criminal justice system and we rely on these courts to determine our outcomes based on the crime that was committed. Today, there is more diversity of leadership in the court system but, race still plays a role in the outcome of the offender. This could range from petty crimes being committed like traffic infractions or facing the death penalty based on the race of the offender or victim. This paper will examine the three types of disparities that cause biased sentencing in the courts. The three types of disparities are race, social class, and gender and these all play a huge factor when making a decision based off an offender.
When we look at the Federal Criminal Process we can see that the first step in the process is Investigation, an investigators duty is to investigate crime, obtain evidence and help prosecutors understand the details of a case. These investigators can be from several different agencies which include the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigations, DHS/HIS (Homeland Security Investigation, USSS (United States Secret Service,
Courts are to conduct fair and impartial trials and they also decide criminal cases. Each of these parts have different people in them that each offender will see as they go through the system. This system works with the help of everyone working together. During the criminal justice system there will be a lot of people who you come across. I’m only going to talk about a few in this essay today.
Upon entering the courtroom, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The jury had taken their seats and soon the judge looked to me, “Does the Prosecution wish to make an opening statement?” “Yes, your Honor,” I replied. As lead prosecutor in the inaugural case of the Mendocino Coast Teen-Peer Court, my first task was to look over the details. In reading this case, involving the shoplifting alcohol from a grocery store, the juvenile defendant had been given the option to clear this conviction from his record if he was to participate with the organization and complete the sentence provided. To gather more information I conducted interviews with the arresting officers and store employees.
I actually really enjoyed this interview, going into it I fully expected to be bored out of my mind, but I was pleasantly surprised. I did not realize that most of the individuals were friends before they all got their positions in the white house. It was just really interesting because there are so many emotions and tensions in the white house and to have to tell your friend something serious as a coworker rather than a friend cannot be easy, as McLarty
Firstly, I was assigned to the ROIC in 2006 where I learned the basics of Intelligence Led Policing and the dissemination of sensitive data. At that time, in the early days of the ROIC, I utilized the SIMMs system to disseminate intelligence data to detectives in the field. Secondly, on the Special Projects side of our unit, we have access to all NJSP databases and are constantly tasked with producing reports from those databases. These reports can cover a range of topics from Use of Force analysis, racial profiling, Misconduct, etc. These types of reports can be considered "intelligence" as it relates to the inner workings of the NJSP and mitigating risk.
She mentioned that there was a lot of talk going around in the city of Okeechobee, and that there were comments made by prosecutors prior to the jury selection that adversely impacted results. “Everyone knows everyone in this small town, it is not absurd to think that word of mouth spread rapidly.” The justices did not seem entirely satisfied with this statement, but they continued arguing in legal jargon that I could not for the life of me understand. The trial was quickly wrapped up after this, with no real solution as to how to move forward. The entire ordeal lasted around 35 minutes, and the next hearing was set about a month from this one. To my understanding, this trial has been going on for the longest time to no avail.
