MILLERSBURG — Referring to her ex as a psychopath who tried to kill her, a domestic violence victim made an impassioned plea Tuesday afternoon for imposition of a prison sentence for her abuser. Ronald E. Morgan II, 39, most recently of 359 ½ E. Bowman St., Wooster, previously pleaded not guilty in Holmes County Common Pleas Court to domestic violence. In exchange for his guilty plea, the state agreed to dismiss a related charge of disrupting public services. The charge is made a fourth-degree felony because Morgan was previously convicted, in 2008, of assault by strangulation. In advocating for Morgan, defense attorney Andy Hyde said, considering Morgan was sentenced to only 40 days in jail, the underlying conviction was not “not as bad as
Manitowoc County did not abide by the law on the Brendan Dassey murder trial. Investigators pulled Brendan Dassey out of class to question him without his parent 's consent. Investigators coerced Brendan´s statements to make Steven Avery look guilty. Manitowoc County District Attorney Ken Kratz did everything in his power to make Manitowoc County seem like they were abiding by the law when they really did not. “He said I declined to go in with Brendan but I wanted to go in with Brendan, the police wouldn 't let me."
This issue of wealth can be seen in an article in which Robert Richards an heir of a wealthy family inheritance received a lenient sentence despite the gravity of his crimes. As stated by the article, “He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended...echoed a recent case in which a wealthy teenager driving drunk killed four but received no jail time” (Conlon and Gallman). Despite the seriousness of his crimes, Richards faced a lenient sentence. This corruption and injustice can be stemmed from his wealth as the judge argues Richards’ wealth corresponds to how incapable he is to fare a longer and more severe sentence. This demonstrates how Richards’ wealth had excused him of a proper sentence and deprived the victim of the justice they deserved.
Bazile continued to sentence the couple to a year in prison, but guaranteed their freedom if they left the state of Virginia for the following 25 years. The Lovings consequently moved away, yet five years later they were arrested again while visiting family in Virginia. The case boosted up to the Supreme Court after that, and Virginia 's law was declared unconstitutional. Loving vs. Virginia brought an end to the discriminatory mindset that blacks and whites could not mix, let alone
From the essay, The Dead Baby Mystery, Gawade starts with a court case that involves the murders of eight children of Marie Noe that no one could explain what happened. As Gawande writes, “some of the most respected pathologists of the time, could find no explanation for the crib deaths” (202) and “Foul play was strongly considered, but no evidence for was found” (202). What Gawande has written is that at the time, cases like these, child murder or accident, determines not easily. Even three decades later — the case reopened and the judge charges her of child abuse — one of the officials that wrote back to Gawande stating “that there was no direct evidence to support the charges” (Gawande 204). That quote Gawande wrote to show that the charge came from indirect or circumstantial evidence.
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.
We tend to dehumanize criminals and forget that they too are real people who have the capacity to experience pain, fear and loss. There is no way to know what exactly death feels like, but it's an indisputable fact that the process before an execution can have extreme effects on a prisoner's mental health. How would you feel if you knew you were to be executed in 72 hours time? Not only do executions affect the convict, but also society as a whole. During the 17th and 18th centuries people became so used to public hangings that eventually they came to enjoy the display.
How would you feel if your parents we’re getting drag out of there house and going to jail for you not attending at school and what if the dropout age is raised which forces you to go to college? More importantly what if this was happening to you? Thousands of parents are going to jail for their kid not attending school. The dropout age and truancy are such a huge debate that been going on for years with no end in sight, the government needs to step in to finish this debate already. School shouldn’t raise the dropout age because at age 18 people are an adult, parents don’t see truancy as an issue, and don’t have enough money to support their kids in higher education.
However, they are incorrect because teenagers can make the right choices when given the opportunity to do so. In an article in The Guardian, they talked to teenagers who were previously in gangs. One teen recounted their experience saying, ‘My mum pleaded with me and said that if I didn 't stop I 'd be in and out of jail for the rest of my life. I left school last year when I was 16 and went to college. I finish my apprenticeship next year and I 'll be able to work.” This teenager figured out being in a gang is the wrong choice, left the gang, and changed their life around.
They also think that they should have to pay for their actions and face the consequences for killing an innocent person or people. Although giving someone a life sentence is a financial burden for the state that the person is being held in, most americans feel it's something they are willing to pay extra for on taken to ensure the safety of their homes and where they live. When holding someone on death row it costs the state over 1 million dollars per person and that money is usually taken out of taxes or government money. Over all death penalty supporters feel like keeping a killer alive with there tax money isn't fair to them and they shouldn't get the satisfaction of living their own life even if its a crappy one cause they took that from somebody
.When I gazed into the eyes of my grandmother and my hero, I had no idea that those familiar brown eyes no longer knew who I was. I knew she was stumbling in life and that for the first time in over 10 years, she was separated from my grandfather and placed into an assisted living community. My hero was falling, but to what extent I failed to grasp until that first and most difficult visit. No one in the family knew my grandmother suffered from alzheimer 's until the disease had already run rampant throughout her strong mind. It turned her memories against her, seemingly repositioning her life changing the Vietnam hero and sheriff into a woman who knew not even herself.
