Specifically, he was innocent of fraud, check kiting, a conspiracy of robbery, murder in the second degree, and criminal negligence, yet found guilty of forgery. He was found innocent of all other charges on the basis that not enough evidence was provided that could incriminate John Wayne Gretzky, nor did they have enough evidence the exact identity of the committee of these crimes - therefore the jury had no reasonable ground to charge John Wayne Gretzky of any of those crimes. He was, however, found guilty on the terms that there was no evidence of consent from Louise Mondelo regarding the forging of signatures on the two bank receipts with inconsistent signature and dates, and contained ink that matches that of John Wayne Gretzky. Therefore, the jury decided to charge John Wayne Gretzky the same amount of money he had taken from Louise’s account, $20, 000, using the forged signatures, and also sentence him to one year in prison. If he was unable to pay the fine he received, the jail sentences would increase for each amount he was unable to
They also could look at the hand and finger prints on the boy’s neck. I assume that Justine’s hands are not the same size of those of the monster. These two pieces of evidence could prove that she did not strangle William. Lie detector tests are also an option to prove innocence Victor becomes ill and depressed, and he even has thoughts of suicide. This plot device is reoccuring so that we as readers can fully comprehend his torment over his own actions.
The American Supreme Court ruled out that evidence because it was obtained from illegal doing, even if it is proved that it’s the Simpson’s blood. Simon A. Cole note that the Simpson case was not concerned with only the admissibility of DNA evidence but also was related to the issues of race, class and gender in the United States. Therefore, the DNA evidence is accepted as well and can be used as evidence to prove the guilt of the offender especially the serious case such as murder or rape. In common law,
In The Watchmen, The Comedian rapes Sally, but is not punished for his crime and only murdered for being in the way of Ozymandias’ plans to prevent World War III. Identity Crisis is almost more flipped in the rape situation. The rapist lives, and Dr. Light’s story is covered up with lies from any person outside of the Justice League. the Justice League sought that when Batman disagreed with their cover-up for a hero that extreme ties come for extreme measures, so they attempted to wipe his memory. However different it may seem, in the Watchmen, like Identity Crisis, where they protected the hero who committed an immoral act, Rorschach was displeased with Adrian Veidt, otherwise known as Ozymandias.
This lack in faith is reinforced by the unlikelihood of convicting the attacker. If a crime is reported to police it is usually dismissed due to a lack of evidence. Many instances of sexual assault are often labeled as "unfounded" by police, meaning the police disregard the report as hearsay since there was insufficient evidence to convict an attacker(Doolittle, 2017). Usually, the cases labeled unfounded ( after being reviewed by police) found no violation against the law. The Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR) (an overview of sexual assaults compiled by police) does not include cases of unfounded sexual assault as they are either unreliable and create discrepancies regarding reporting(Rotenburg, 2017).
The Harris case is related to the course material because it illustrates the formal criminal justice process related to the court. Harris is being charged with a felony, which is why the case did not end in a plea bargain. The article also illustrates an instance in which discretion within law enforcement may be used. Hill points out that when investigating the murder the team failed to investigate other likely suspects.
One perception, I took that I have thought about before is that there is corrupt workers in the system. The reason for that being because Dexter is committing crime, while working for the Miami Metro Police Department in which makes him to be corrupt agent. Another opinion about this series is that I agree and disagree with what Dexter did. One reason why I agree is because he is taking care of a guilty murder. The government would not have to worry about the person being in prison.
Red herrings are both deceptive and manipulative, but more importantly, they are how Dr. Sheppard almost got away with murder. In The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, a wealthy man is killed in his own estate. There are many suspects, excluding Sheppard. Between fake footprints and the intelligent use of a dictaphone, Dr.Sheppard deceived and manipulated both the police and Poroit, allowing him to no longer be a suspect in Roger Ackroyd’s murder. In an investigation, clues are key.
Wargrave had appeared to be just another victim to an unfortunate series of events, yet instead he was the mastermind behind the whole massacre. In allowing Wargrave to play criminal and detective, Christie provides a suspenseful and jaw dropping ending that the reader could not have seen
Would you be okay with getting blamed on killing someone and going to jail? This story is interesting because Jay might be the killer of Hae. Adnan Syed is supposably the killer of Hae. Adnan Syed is innocent of the murder of Hae because he doesn’t remember what he did that day and he had no motive. Adnan didn’t have no reason to kill her.
The law states that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty and because Adnan Syed is far from being proven due to lack of actual evidence. Whether you want to believe he was involved in this murder or not, there is no reason for him to spend one more day in jail. Yes many believe that certain inconsistencies and theories that are not actually reliable mean he is the one who committed this heinous crime. The reality is Adnan has an alibi, the reality is Adnan has no motive behind this act, the reality is there is no evidence out there to make Adnan serve the life sentence. I am confident that Adnan has 100% undeniably been wrongfully convicted of first degree murder.
