For this assignment, you will explore due process, post-conviction review (relief), and sentencing as they relate to a specific court case you research. This assignment will introduce you to a few issues those in the criminal justice field face. You may be called on to consider these issues too if you pursue a career in criminal justice.
Conduct an internet search for a current example of a case to use for this assignment. Do not use any cases you have previously used for another assignment in this course.
Imagine you are a judicial assistant for a superior court judge. As an alumnus, you’ve been asked by your university to write a paper for the criminal justice department’s journal, read by students and alumni, based on a court case you’ve observed as part of your job.
Write 700- to 1,050-word paper for the journal and address the following:
Was the crime control or due process model of punishment used in the case? Do you agree with it? Explain your answer.
What are some of the issues related to due process?
What was the sentence given in the trial? What are the sentencing guidelines for the crime committed in the trial (refer to the sentencing guidelines of the state the trial was held)?
What are some of the issues related to sentencing? Were there any issues raised in this case? If so, what were they? If not, in your opinion could any issues have been raised?
Was there an appeal or post-conviction relief (review)? What is the law in the state of the trial for post-conviction relief (review)?
Differentiate post-conviction relief (review) and appeal. Compare post-conviction relief(review) to the Innocence Protection Act of 2004.
Remember: You must select a criminal case tried in the United States that went to a verdict, optimally a verdict of guilty so that you can better address the rest of this assignment. If you choose a trial that ended in an acquittal, you must still discuss the appeals process and post-conviction relief but you’ll have to do it in more general terms. Do not select a case that ended in a plea bargaining and/or did not reach a verdict. Don’t spend too much of your time discussing the facts of the case except as to how that might affect the sentencing and the due process or crime control model. Again, if you have any questions about the case you want to use, please run it by me first.
