Due to this amendment in the constitution the adult criminal can get relief before they are proved guilty. The judges in the criminal justice are neutral compared to any other staff and they look for witnesses or evidence before punishing the accused. There are instances where law enforcement officers may take advantage of their positional power to harass the people in the
DANIEL COLON CJA 301 MODULE 2 CASE TRIDENT UNIVERSITY The Miranda rights have been established to provide suspected criminals their rights upon being arrested. By being read these rights, the criminals know what they are entitled to, such as the right to remain silent and to obtaining an attorney (Prentzas, 2005). However, in recent years many terrorist suspects have not been read these rights and it has come to the point that many people, lawmakers and officials believe that they should not be entitled to the rights that are drawn out in the Miranda warnings. As these terrorist suspects are innocent until proven guilty, are no different than any other criminals, and have the Fifth and Sixth Amendments backing them up, they should be guaranteed the rights given by the Miranda warnings.

Deferred sentencing is a twist on deferred prosecution that puts off sentencing instead of putting off charges. An example of deferred sentencing is an offender who is arrested for selling and using meth, and as a requirement they need to plead guilty to there charge and complete a court mandated treatment program. Along with the mandated treatment programs, the courts will expunged there charges as long as they complete it. Another step alternatives to traditional prosecution is, the Drug treatment alternative to prison
Plea bargaining can present a dilemma to defence counsel in choosing between vigorously seeking a good deal for their present client or maintaining a good relationship with the prosecutor for the sake of helping future clients. There are few ways to bargain with the prosecuting officers. For both the government and the defendant, the decision to enter into or not to enter into a plea bargain can be based on few things. One of them is the seriousness of the alleged crime.
Waiving Miranda Rights: Waiving Miranda rights is not an option, though, until the family has been knowledgeable of those privileges, and are fully comprehends them. Few of the authorities allow an indirect waiving of these rights, which actually means that a accused’s performance indicates that he wants to capitulation those rights, even if he has not explicitly stated this. For example: Juan is under arrest for burglary, at which point he is understand his Miranda rights.
The god-cop side only works when there is common ground, deceiving the suspect can backfire if the interrogator is caught lying. If the interrogator is not caught the suspect can gain trust and confess. http://www.npr.org/2013/12/05/248968150/beyond-good-cop-bad-cop-a-look-at-real-life-interrogations http://dyingwords.net/police-interrogations-9-step-reid-technique/#sthash.ojceXXlb.dpbs 3. Which early law codes gave victims rights against the perpetrator?
When a crime is committed and an individual is caught in the act, there is a set process that one follows to adhere to the rules of the criminal justice system. This method can be simplified by looking at the common flow of events: (1) an individual is arrested, (2) individual is brought to court, (3) individual receives a punishment. Though it may appear that the way in which the criminal justice system functions is sufficient, many voice the concern that there are certain key players affected by crimes that are consistently disregarded. These players are otherwise known as the victims and the community. As a result, many have hypothesized a new approach to justice that incorporate all aspects of crime.
Justice Douglas wrote the opinion. “The decision by the court was to overturn the officers ' convictions based upon the finding that they were coerced under the threat of the loss of their positions as public employees, specifically as police officers. The officers had a vested interest in their jobs, as it was their livelihood. The decision, needless to say, put public entities on notice that, although they have the right to compel employees to give a truthful statement to authorities about their actions as public servants, they could not also use the statement against them in a criminal action. The officers were entitled to immunity, as is any public servant.”
I do not think that the plea bargain lets someone off easy. While they might receive a lesser change they also are having the fact that they admitted to doing something taken into consideration by the court system when they decide on the punishment. I feel that it equals out in the long run for those who end up taking the plea bargain. In small cases yes the person might get off with just probation, but is probation was something in condensation then the crime could not have been that detrimental. They would not offer something like probation to a deranged murderer if they confessed to killing someone.
Based on my knowledge on conspiracy I believe that the RICO act is necessary but can also be not useful depending how the defendant pleads his case. Conspiracy is defined as a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful. I think the RICO act is necessary because part of me believes that organizations would continue to get away with heinous crimes if the act was non-existing. Another reason to I believe RICO is necessary is because it has been important to up and coming laws. RICO has led to revitalizing the interest in civil punishment.
Similarly, the educational aspect portrayed in the article, and an interesting repetition, “You don’t get to assault police officers.” Nonetheless, explained in the article assaulting an officer won’t do any great deeds; instead, it does you more harm. Hence, there is provided due process and access to the court, if one finds the wrongdoings of the officer(s)
The doctrine states that courts are bound by decisions held in earlier cases. However, I agree with the reasoning in Johnson, a court should be allowed to correct the effects of a prior court ruling if the ruling was badly reasoned and has a negative impact on society. The criminal justice system, which includes the courts, was established to control crime and enforce punishments on those who violated the law. Stare decisis should not apply to a court correcting a prior court decision, which consequences resulted in contradicting the establishment of the criminal justice
