Write an essay describing the crime.

After your topic has been approved by your instructor write between 600 and 1200 words detailing the crime. You should include your name(s) at the top followed by a title for your paper. Put the link or a citation of the source information at the end. If you do not have a link, then you should cite the source using the following format:

article author(s) [if provided]. year. article title. Miami Herald. date. page(s).

Your name(s), title and citations do not count towards the total word count. Also, put the total word count at the top right as follows: “total words: ____.”

If you are submitting this as a pair, write both of your names at the top. Only one needs to submit it. You will both receive the exact same grade on this assignment. If your partner is submitting the essay, ensure that they submit it properly and on-time.

When writing the essay, do the following:

 

1. Include a very brief introduction with background relevant to understanding the crime.

2. Spend a significant amount of time discussing the forensic evidence used in the investigation & prosecution of the crime. This can be evidence used to convict or exonerate a defendant. If there are multiple pieces of relevant evidence, focus on one or at most two main pieces. You are better off discussing one piece in detail than two or three too flippantly.

a. Discuss the theory behind the evidence. For example, how is it that we can identify someone’s height based on the length of bones or how we can use blood spatter to determine the source of blood and its speed? What is the science behind those things and how was it relevant to this case?

b. You should also discuss how the evidence applied directly to this case.

3. Briefly summarize the evidence as it related to the outcome of the case. If there were some problems you identified (e.g., the evidence was applied incorrectly or too broadly), this would be the time to explain that.

 

You should try to be succinct and clear in your writing. Ask someone else to read it for you. It is also helpful to read the paper aloud to yourself to hear where you’ve made mistakes.
