In “Crime and Punishment: The saga of Richie Parker” published in Sports Illustrated, Gary Smith helps to explain just how many people are affected by a single sexual assault case. He does this in a very unique style by giving 12 sections explaining the incident from different points of view and the effects of a single crime.

She was known in the community for her disability making her easy to manipulate and there were a few instances where people did take advantage of her disability and convinced her to do things that were wrong and sometimes inappropriate (“The Glen Ridge Rape”,2003).
During spring break one of the captain of the lacrosse team decided to throw a party and have two strippers there.

As we mentioned earlier, the freshman’s mother mentioned to coach McElroy the fact that the upperclassman was calling her son those insulting names. This incident could have been foreseeable by the coaches, and possibly the administration, if the coach reported anything to the principal and athletic director. The Mepham High School football season was eventually cancelled and the three upperclassman were charged with “involuntary deviate sexual intercourse,” “aggravated assault,” “kidnapping,” “unlawful restraint,” “false imprisonment,” “terroristic threats,” “criminal coercion,” “simple assault,” “reckless endangering of another person,” “ethnic intimidation,” and “criminal conspiracy.” Judge Robert J.

The teens had been seen drinking illegally before the tragic event. So, the cause of their death could have been because they were drunk.

The age of the offenders continually decreases, and the brutality of the crimes seems to be increasing. Cameron Williams, age sixteen, celebrated his 16th birthday behind bars (Khan).

The young woman had went to a high school party with her younger sister with no intention of consuming alcohol to the point of being lethargic. She later woke up to find herself in the hospital with no memory of what had happened the night before. The nurses and police officers involved in the situation told her that she had been raped and found behind a dumpster, but she had no recollection of the night before. Despite the evidence from the medical records, the boy who assaulted her plead guilty to only consuming alcohol in which he received no punishment, only because the young woman could not prove her case that he was, in fact, guilty because nobody else had seen the incident and she was intoxicated with no memory of the assault itself. In the end, the young woman finds the strength within herself to forgive him so that she’s able to continue her life in
Today, if the courts take a different decision, the Appellant could use the social media to arrest her case. In the District of Columbia, the policy expressed. For example, in the case of Bean v. the United States, Bean Appellant violated § 22-3102, Bean was required to “prove that he did not enter a premises against the will of the lawful occupant of the individual lawfully in charge thereof”(Schwelb, 1998).
