Susie leaves school and, while driving home, hits and kills her criminal law professor. Outline a changing set of facts and circumstances which would make this an offense of capital murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, and negligent homicide.
Written Assignments – Topic Papers The students will be presented with scenarios that require a resolution by the student based on information in the textbook. Grades for problems will be based on the student’s ability to recognize and discuss the issue. Each assignment is worth 50 points. (50 points X 2 assignments = 100 total points). The ultimate answer is not as important as the student’s ability to recognize the issues and apply the law to the facts in the scenario. The response should include a statement of the law relevant to the issue and application of that law to the facts. These answers should be at least 700 words, double-spaced 12 point font, one inch margins. Students shall reference the text at least FOUR (4) times in each paper and include a word count and bibliography (i.e., formal citation of the textbook) at the end of the paper. Internet sources will not be allowed. References must ONLY come from the text. However, the references must be independent (no doubling up of references). Written assignments are designed to aid you in critically thinking about a variety of criminal justice topics and to get you engaged in the problem solving process. They may be utilized in the discussion board to stimulate dialogue and to prompt any questions you may have about the criminal justice system. Your responses should be thorough and scholarly. Avoid jargon and street language as you are completing each of the responses to these questions. For instance, “cop” is generally unacceptable, “police officer” is preferred. A person may be “mentally ill” or “legally insane,” not “nuts”. Complete responses must be submitted by 11:59 P.M. EST pm the date due by posting through BlackBoard. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you have correctly attached the file and submitted the work. You can do this by going into your grade book and clicking on the green asterisk (!) to see what files attached.
