In a state of hopelessness, the counsel decided not to present nor look for further evidence concerning respondent’s character and emotional state, because he believed it would not overcome the evidentiary effect of the respondent’s confessions to the crimes. The counselor also judged that he should rely on the plea colloquy for evidence about respondent’s background and his claim of emotional stress. The counselor believed the plea colloquy provided sufficient information to the Court about these subjects. He also believed that by not introducing new evidence on these subjects, he prevented the State from cross-examining the respondent on his claim and from introducing its own psychiatric evidence. He also was successful in excluding other damaging evidence from the sentencing hearing, including the introduction of the respondent’s criminal history.
Father further argues that the trial court erred by failing to hold Mother in contempt for violating the circuit court’s order with regard to father’s visitation of the minor children. Further, Father alleges that the circuit court erred in finding him in contempt for failing to satisfy his child support obligation. For the reasons that follow, the Court lacks jurisdiction to consider whether the trial court erred in failing to find mother in contempt. Further, we hold the circuit court did not err in finding Father to be in contempt. A.
Lane via text and Sgt. Lane told her to report it as well. At 6:06 pm, Schemer sent Lt. Manns an email detailing her concern about Hale’s statements. When asked about the content of the text messages between her and Anderson and Lane, Schemer advised that she deleted the text from her phone. Director Smith pressed Schemer to explain why she had not reported the incident earlier in the day and she explained that Hale hangs around the police precinct and she did not want him to know she was reporting him.
Gawain, who had struck a deal with the lord to surrender all things he received during his stay in the lord’s dwelling, fails to do so in the name of self-preservation. The lord’s wife gifts Sir Gawain a green sash rumored to protect its possessor from physical harm. Gawain, recalling his inevitable meeting with the Green Knight, decides to contradict his agreement with the lord and “hid[es] it away from all hands and eyes” (Line 1875). His decision blatantly violated the chivalrous code, “failing a moral test in agreeing to hide the girdle from the husband, with whom he has the prior arrangement to exchange winnings” (West 9). Sir Gawain disrespected the lord whom was housing him when he decided to keep the sash a secret.
DeMichel provides that the Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizure while requiring law enforcement personnel to provide notice of their identity and announce their purpose when entering upon private premises. The court found it unreasonable for the officers to forcible enter the premises with first giving the occupant an opportunity to voluntarily surrender the premises. Our client’s Fourth Amendment rights were violated when the plain clothed officers entered the premises without announcing their purpose and without providing Mr. Clavel the appropriate time to voluntarily open his door and surrender the premises for search. The unlawful search and seizure led to Mr. Clavel’s charges of intent to distribute
He states “I hope you will believe that my delay in answering your letter could proceed only from my unwillingness to destroy any hope….”. Johnsons begins this letter using emotion tactics because he knows that it will be hard for the mother to accept the fact that he is refusing her request. By beginning the letter in such a manner he is not pampering her for the rest of the letter but also letting her down softly as possible. Oppose to accusing her of being wrong for having this feeling and attempting to change her son’s fate, Johnson defines hope as being “a pleasure immoderately enjoyed” and as an “expectations improperly
Okonkwo is ashamed that he has been affected by Ikemefuna 's death. He went to speak with his good friend, Obierika. Obierika said that he is invited to be with him later while he negotiates the bride price for his daughter. Okonkwo starts to scorn Obierika for not coming to kill Ikemefuna. Obierika then said that Okonkwo shouldn’t have gone.What Okonkwo did is the type of deeds that the gods punish.
I believe the resolution Cahal attempts to achieve is one of repentance. I think Cahal believes that if he can eliminate all of the things in his life that have caused him to feel guilty, he can escape the consequences he has made for himself. After the hit and run incident with the child, he tried to avoid the situation as much as possible. However, guilt and fear slowly eat away at his mind and force him to confront the truth: he has killed a child. It seems that belief and a religion are two underlying themes in this story, what with the weeping religious statue.
Civil liberties and public order law define the relationship between individuals and society in relation to the exercise of rights and freedoms, which affects the society. The law relating to public order is the means by which freedom and rights are defined and restricted for the greater good of the society . The rights of freedom of assembly, for the example, is one which is capable of disrupting the rights of others to move along the highway or to enjoy public spaces free from interference. It is equally important that when one group intends to exercise its right it should not damage more relations or come into physical conflict with groups holding directly opposing political views. Accordingly, in the interest of public order, certain requirements are laid down for the
Desertion is a ground for judicial separation as well as for divorce. When one spouse leaves the other in a manner which is not justifiable, the deserted spouse has a remedy by way of matrimonial relief. Desertion consist of the unjustified withdrawal from cohabitation by one spouse without the consent of the other with the intention of remaining separated permanently. As illustrated in the case of Reg v Lershe , desertion is the willful absenting of the husband from the society of his wife inspite of her wishes or vice versa. Under section 54(1)(c) of the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976 (Act 164) & Rules [hereinafter referred to as LRA], the petitioner must prove that there had indeed been a desertion lasting for a continuous period of at least 2 years.
Kozenczak went to Gacy’s home and when he asked Gacy to come to the station he refused saying that someone in his family died and he had to make some call. He came into the station later and gave his statement saying that he knew nothing and was allowed to leave, but Kozenczak had other feelings about
The police officers arrived at Ms. Dollree Mapp’s home, looking for a bombing suspect who was believed to be staying with Mapp. Officers knocked at her door and demanded entry. After placing a call to her attorney Mapp decided not to let law enforcement enter her home. (Landmark Cases) After a few hours, the officers returned to Mapp’s home with what they claimed was a search warrant (Landmark Cases); while, Mapp still wouldn’t allow them entrance; they used brute force to gain entry to the home. After the officers were inside of the house, Mapp grabbed the paper from the officers, and she was handcuffed “because she had been belligerent”.
Her love for them and her need to protect them was challenged by their deaths, and her PTSD only further enforces the fact that losing someone who one cherishes and lives for will change them irreversibly. (SIP-B) Najmah 's first instinct is to run away from her triggers in order to save herself from pain, but she simultaneously prevents recovery by building walls which keep people out. (STEWE-1) Najmah, as a war refugee from Afghanistan, had been incredibly susceptive to mental disorders such as PTSD. In the Middle East, refugees are likely to suffer worse from PTSD due to the loss of family. With no one to support them because of the common deaths of those who are close to them, Afghan refugees are often victims of mental conditions such as PTSD.
Chavez, I cannot stress enough the emphasis on the objection letter from Cook County DA! Please, I need you to depict a different image of me or minimize its severity than originally portrayed by the DA. If we can counter attack the DA’s letter, most likely they will run out of ammo to attack us next time. The following emphasizes I need you to work on (just my recommendation, I am certain you have your strategy): • Minimize immigration/deportation since the DA claimed it is a federal concern but not the state • Primarily reason to seek pardon is to leave criminal life behind and move forward without any conscience 2. A license to freely practice mental health 3.
These actions did not go by what was established by an earlier, similar case, and by performing the scan with no warrant, the government did not allow DLK to conduct private activities in his own home. Although some argue that the government’s actions were acceptable because they only scanned what was visible to the public, they still used a device not readily available to the public to see inside DLK’s home. The government’s actions were unacceptable, and a warrant should have been obtained prior to performing the search in order to make it
