    If I had to do criminal, I would be a prosecutor. I think that most of the prosecutors I have observed weren’t great. Fore example, in Judge Samuels court room there was a prosecutor, who maybe because he was young he would make the mistake of not rephrasing when the other side would object. It is understanding that the prosecutor was new, it was his second case, but he does have room for improvement. I think that messing up can be easy when prosecuting the case because everything is at the moment. Further, as a prosecutor according to Judge Jesic you cannot see the other sides evidence and I think that requires the prosecutor to be ready for anything. Another example would be in Judge Dohi’s court room with the transsexual homicide case, the prosecutor there was over trying the case, attempting to show prejudicial pictures of his tattoos, and twisting the truth a bit when it came to closing arguments. In the closing arguments instead of saying revenge, she could have said that he was tired of the decedent or something similar. Being a prosecutor from what I have seen and heard is not easy, I think that the reasonable doubt makes it hard. Moreover, it is difficult because in criminal you have to work with what is given. I think that being a prosecutor would still be best because it would be safer for…

    trafficking, however, reports from the U.S. Department of Justice describe that only a couple of hundred victims are identified and assisted by law enforcement per year (Farrell, McDevitt & Fahy, 2010). Underestimating the number of victims affected by human trafficking each year might result in some people, including government and law enforcement officials, questioning the existence and magnitude of the problem. Failing to recognize human trafficking as a global problem only results in…

    Jessep and Lieutenant Kendrick who act as the protagonists in the story. Private Santiago was the private who was murdered in this movie. The five themes from this movie that I will be explaining are plea bargaining, the prosecution, the defense, witnesses, and the bailiff. The first topic is plea bargaining. This is when a deal is made outside of court. This doesn’t include the judge and it ultimately saves time and decreases costs for the defendant. We see a very good example of plea…

    uncanny ability to explain complex scientific evidence from all evidence but it didn’t match the million dollar dream team of OJ’s lawyers. Quickly the lawyers and the media labeled her boring, hardnosed, and having no emotion. When that didn’t get to her the media went after her appearance. They ridiculed her hair, her clothes, her lipstick color, the circles under her eyes, and even the hemline of her suits. She became an underdog in the courtroom and had to defend herself at all times. Then…

    A trial gives the prosecution and the defence an equal opportunity to present their evidence.

A basic principle of Canada's justice system is that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. The trial begins with the prosecutor presenting the evidence against the accused. This is done by calling witnesses and introducing materials as evidence to support the charges.…

Two women sat in the benches behind the defendant, and a well dressed balding man sat on the opposing side. A long discussion was being had in correlation to job wages and newfound work. My first thought would be that this was not the case I had intended to see,…

    I made the decision in high school to become a lawyer, but experiences in college motivated the decision to want to become a prosecutor. Though I did not know much, what I did know was that my sense of right and wrong that infuriated my relatives whenever I called them out for speeding or saying something without having any evidence to back it up, were clear indicators of where I was going to end up. During my time on the College 's Mock Trial Team, I realized exactly what type of lawyer I…

    When I spoke to my boss at the office about how confusing the questioning was, he explained that it is important to make the questioning confusing, so that the jury gets confused, as feels like they cannot find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. They were no objections made during the cross-examination. Attorneys can make an objection to the judge or question a piece of evident brought up during the case. After the defense was finished, cross-examine the first witness, the…

    them by the court are not competent. His second reason is that the prosecutors are not after justice, they are after convictions. Which does not always lead to justice. He also argues that the DA is an elected political position, so a town may be mostly one side, but if there is someone is more qualified from the other party, the won 't get elected because they are from the “wrong” political party.
