For the crimes of killing four people while exceeding the adult legal alcohol limit as a minor, Ethan was “sentenced to 10 years probation and no jail time” instead of being sentenced to prison, Couch was instead sent to a “long-term, inpatient rehabilitation center in Southern California, after his father agreed to pay the $450,000-per-year bill” (Flatow, Legum 1). How could such a violent crime that was described by the Tarrant County Sheriff as being “the most difficult
And the sisters arguably did little to impact Trujillo’s reign and his assassination several months after their deaths. Indeed, it was not justified for the Mirabal sisters to make the significant sacrifices they made. The payoffs, if there were any, did not come close to compensating for the pain and suffering they brought upon themselves and their families along with their ultimate deaths. Two of the unnecessary hardships they endured before their pointless deaths, among numerous others, were Minerva giving up her child in order to join the revolution and
Lizzie is a true mastermind to have gotten away with murder because there is no other explanation to Lizzie's parents brutal death. Lizzie was acquitted of the murdering her parents but there wasn't enough physical evidence against her to prove that she was the axe murderer that killed her parents. Lizzie hid her steps very well and played it off real cool but she forgot one thing this is the 21 century and although it has never been really solve I can show you my thinking of what happened. In the first article Lizzie Borden murderess or media sensation. It states¨There is no physical evidence leading her to the murders.¨Although they did not find any physical evidence.
She tell a story of a young girl named fwadaus who lost the house key of her uncle’s house .After losing the key fwadaus decided to burn her hand so as to attract sympathy from his uncle who mistreated her . The story says “this fateful day, she lost something not so little- she’d lost the key to the house and she was terrified of her uncle‘s wrath.” and the story continuously say. “Only two weeks ago, he had beaten fwadaus for spilling a pitcher of milk. She’d fallen and hit her head, knocking herself unconsciously for thirty seconds. She’d come to still lying on the floor as her uncle was shouting at her auntie not to help her.” This shows how physical abuse of her uncle pushed fwadaus to take bad decision of burning her
Experts attempt to understand the cost to society regarding white-collar crimes. White-collar crimes affect society in many of ways. The crime is not as violent as other crime. However, it has a critical financial impact. Law enforcement listed white-collar crime as closed case because “the complexity of white collar crime and the difficulty of making and proving a case.” (Kennedy, 2015) This may take more than a few months or years to identify the crime and do justice.
But at this point Sal’s mother was pregnant so when her mother gave birth the baby was dead when it got strangled with its umbelacelcord. Sal blamed herself because she thinks if she never climbed that tree none of it would have happened. Sal thought, “ He said to me, “ It wasn’t your fault, Sal—it wasn’t because she carried you. You mustn’t think that,” I didn’t believe him,” (page 138). If Sal didn’t believe her father 's words then she thinks she caused her mothers miscarriage and she is probably upset about this.
If Abigail had brought the accusations forward and the vulnerable adults wouldn’t have believed the hysteria wouldn’t have occured. The Putnams played a major role in the blaming of being a witch. Mr. and Mrs. Putnam have gone through their own trauma. Seven out of eight of their children have died before they were a day old and Mrs. Putnam is convinced that witches killed her babies. Mr. Putnam is only worried about gaining more land and if more people die that means there is more land for him.
Murderous instinct likely has not even been studied yet but, in this case, the trait would not have been found to be genetic because neither of the parents of the children were killers. Their environments may have pushed the two towards murder but ultimately, killing the Clutter family was a choice, not a genetic trait, and not entirely due to the environment either. There was something in them that twisted and told them that it was alright to kill other people; Perry’s sister even said “they shared a doom against which virtue was no defense" showing that she felt that whatever caused Richard and Perry to kill was out of their control (Capote 185). Ultimately, this example from “In Cold Blood” showed that some behaviors were not due to genetics or the environment but were almost entirely due to choices made by the
Soon after leaving she sent Parr an apology letter showing that she was not completely innocent in the whole situation. Catherine Parr died on September 5, 1548 and after her death Seymour got an active interest in Elizabeth’s property and began questioning her steward. However on March 29, 1549, Thomas Seymour was executed and all Elizabeth had to say was “There died a man with much wit and very little judgement (Zamoyska).” Edward VI died of Tuberculosis at age fifteen and his half sister Mary I was crowned. During Mary’s reign Thomas Wyatt, a Protestant, led a rebellion against her and Elizabeth was sent to the Tower as a prisoner for being suspected of consulting with Wyatt about the rebellion. When Mary died after a five year reign she was married to Philip II of Spain, childless, and England was in major debt from wars between Spain and France.
A total of 1000 court cases where the defendant plead innocent 25 percent of whites, 18 percent of blacks, and 12 percent of Latinos got their sentences reduced through bargaining. (Noisette) Along with these people the poor also are not treated fair, imagine a father or a sibling couldn’t afford an attorney for his court trial, so he then was sentenced for five years but then stayed 50 years to finally pay off the attorney. This is a great example where minorities and poor people have a disadvantage vs a wealthy white person. This is a direct violation of the law saying everyone has the right to a fair trial but the statistics show that it really isn’t fair.To fix this problem we can have a system to test judges, stop racial and economic profiling,
A person who is in pre-trial detention is and should be considered innocent until proven guilty. Some people who are in low-income families do not have the proper lawyer to guide them and will not be given a fair trial, which would congest prisons even more. Finally, with the prisons being so congested, we have to pay taxes for every inmate. The average American tax payer will spend around $20,000 to $30,000 dollars a year, that is equivalent or more than some people 's yearly income. What are we going to do about this?
Gwinnett County Homicide Detective, Dave Brucz, testified about Cassie 's description of her grandparents murder: "Johnny began to attack the grandfather. Bjorge then said she had a surge of energy. She then dragged her grandmother into her grandfather’s bedroom. She was duct taped.” Brucz explained to the court “She had basically had enough of her grandparents.” Detective Brucz explained how the 17-year-old was able to keep her family in the dark about Wendy and Randall 's murder: “She admitted after the murder she was texting family members because they were worried about them, and she was pretending to be Wendy.” also said she and her boyfriend, Johnny Rider, planned to murder several other family members. Cassie 's mother, Amanda Sterling, didn 't respond to finding out her daughter and her boyfriend planned on killing her, but she had said "Not in a million years did I think something like would ever happen,"
