Brady case. It was a very similar case to Gideon's that had occurred twenty years earlier. Betts was charged with robbery in Maryland. In court he requested that the judge appoint a lawyer to him because he could not afford one on his own. The court did not provide one because traditionally they only appointed attorneys for defendants charged with murder or rape in that county.
He presents his situation in isolation: his decision to resist the draft was his alone, without consultation or influence. Okada recreates Ichiro’s memories/imaginings in a courtroom scene.

It consisted of 13 people, 7 black and 6 white, departing from Washington, DC. They were planning to stop at Richmond, Petersburg, Farmville, Lynchburg and Danville in Virginia.

Brennan, Farmer was transferred to Penitentiary where he was placed in a general male population. Within two weeks, he was allegedly beaten and raped and preceeded to sue claiming that prison officials deliberately and indifferently failed to protect him as a prisoner. As mentioned above in regards to Farmer v. Brennan, “It is not enough for liability that ‘the risk was so obvious that a reasonable person should have noticed it.” (delCarmen, Ritter, & Witt, 2005, p. 115). In addition, the inmate has to show proof that the prison guards had knowledge and ignored the injury and harm. Farmer v. Brennan (1994) could be utilized to strengthen and weaken the inmate’s case.
Therefore, not trying juveniles as adults will or possibly can lead them to committing other minor or major crimes. Two juveniles who have been tried as an adult would be Nathaniel Brazill who killed his teacher at the age of 13. Brazill got his GED and his law & paralegal certifications in jail. Similarly, Greg Ousley who killed his parents at the age of 14 is serving 60 years behind bars. According to Anderson, he is a model inmate, he is trustworthy behaving himself in prison and getting his education behind bars; got his bachelor's degree in liberal arts.
In Adam Foss’ TED talk the speaker says, “In the fall of 2009, a young man was arrested...He was 18 years old..He had his sights set on college but his part time minimum-wage job wasn’t providing the financial support he needed to enroll in school...In a series of bad decisions he stole 30 laptops from a store and sold them on the Internet.”(Adam Foss). This evidence explains the fact that juveniles are not dangerous because this juvenile did not want to hurt anyone in particular. He needed the extra money to help himself afford college but made a bad choice doing so. A lot of people may say that juveniles deserve to pay for their crimes no matter what their intentions were because they decided to break the law but is it is not logical to charge a juvenile that was threatened with a gun or that wanted to pay for an education with an excessive amount of jail time by
illiteracy, mental illness etc. These circumstances, outlined in an earlier supreme court case Betts v. Brady, stated the state was not required to appoint counsel to the defendant. Unless there were special circumstances or it is a capital offense. Fortunately for Gideon after he appealed to the Supreme Court through a Writ of Habeas Corpus with a petition for Certiorari, a higher court reviews the decision of a lower one. This ruling overturned and today all defendants are granted counsel in all cases except for minor offenses, such as traffic tickets.
He spent much of his early adult life as a drifter, spending time in and out of prisons for nonviolent crimes.”The Petitioner within the case was Clarence Earl Gideon. The Respondent was Louie L. Wainwright, Director, and Division of Correction. It was decided by Warren Court (1962-1965) and it was argued on January 15, 1963 and finally decided on Mach 18, 1963. Gideon was not your normal teenager as he did not spend much time with friends nor did he seem to care much about
While in jail, Neville reportedly wrote letters threatening the lives of the judge and three officers, said Haun, adding the letters were intercepted by jail staff. Haun declined to provide details as to the specific threats made. He did say this is not the first time Neville has made threats to others, but the first time his threats have involved public servants in their official capacities, which is what made the allegations felonies. On the intimidation charges, Neville is next scheduled to appear in court for a June 16 pretrial conference. A jury trial is scheduled for July 11.
Miranda was retried and again found guilty. At the second trial, a former girlfriend testified that he had told her about kidnapping and raping the 18-year-old in 1963. He was paroled in 1972 and was in and out of prison until he was killed in a stabbing at a bar when Miranda was 34 years old. No one was ever charged with his death (Cassell, 1998). The Impact of Miranda V. Arizona When the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the prosecution could not introduce Miranda’s confession during trial because the police had failed to inform the suspect of his right to have an attorney present and that he did not have to incriminate himself, the impact the ruling would have on the entire U.S. judicial system was only beginning to become clear.
Hawkins actions were specific for a definite amount of time. In Cantalupo, a brother took away his intoxicated brother’s keys, and was not responsible for preventing him to drive drunk indefinitely, but only when the he undertook to take the keys away. Cantalupo, 47 So. 3d 900. The court reasoned that to hold otherwise would discourage people from undertaking in the first place.
Avery fought several times for an appeal, but each time was denied. Fortunately for Avery, a petition for DNA testing was granted in 1995 and showed that scrapings taken of Beernsten’s fingernails contained the DNA of an unknown person. The tests were unable to eliminate Avery, however, and a movement for a new trial was denied. In April of 2002, attorneys for the Wisconsin Innocence Project obtained a court order for DNA testing of 13 hairs recovered from Beernsten at the time of the crime. The state crime laboratory reported that, using the FBI DNA database, it had linked a hair to Gregory Allen, a convicted felon who bore a striking resemblance to Avery.
For the first couple of years that Mrs. And Mr. Hansen settled in, there are no records or evidence linking Mr. Hansen to any particular crime. Behavioral psychologists’ suggest that Hansen believed that he could erase his past and make a fresh start for him. However that theory becomes inaccurate in 1971, Hansen was arrested in a town called Spenard. “He was driving in the town of Spenard, had stopped for a light, and glanced over at the woman in the car next to him. She smiled at him, and he regarded this as an open invitation to point his gun at her and demand she come with him.
