CRJ432 with Prof. Jason Mitchell WEEK TWO BUNDLE - SEPTEMBER 6/8, 2016 Elite Notetaker: Kulani Purkey CLASSROOM DISCUSSION - Example given in class follows a hypothe▯cal scenario where the students are allowed to ask as many ques▯ons as possible prior to taking the defense (Stevens) and the prosecutor (the state) to court. A wife, last name of Stevens, had been married to her husband for ten years. Eight out of the ten years she suﬀered abuse and bea▯ng from her husband. Daily, her and her kids feared for their lives, constantly wondering if she would get beaten when she got home. She has le▯ two ▯mes in the past but came back both ▯mes, jus▯fying that there is no hiding from him and that she knows she “doesn’t have a choice”. Regarding the most recent incident, she was beaten on a Tuesday, everything was good on Wednesday, they got in to an argument on Thursday and she called her sister on Friday; ﬁve minutes a▯er the phone call where Stevens stated that she “couldn’t take it anymore”, she decided to kill her husband, shoo▯ng him three ▯mes in the back and leaving him to bleed out. * At this ▯me, students were able to ask any ques▯ons regarding further details of the case and the defendant’s a▯orney and state’s prosecu▯ng a▯orney was chosen. I’ll list the details regarding the case below..: The wife did not have a temporary restraining on the husband. If she had chosen to go back to a shelter, she would have had qualiﬁed for and received ﬁnancial assistance. There has been an eight year period of bea▯ng. The bea▯ngs usually resulted in black eyes, bruises and broken bones at ▯mes. The husband did threaten the two kids during the argument that took place on Thursday. The wife was not ini▯ally read her Miranda rights prior to her arrest at the sta▯on and voluntarily rode with the oﬃcer to the sta▯on for further inves▯ga▯on. The wife’s sister lives within ﬁve minutes of the Stevens’ house. The sister does not have an alibi to prove that she was at her own house at the ▯me of the incident. The wife could collect twenty million dollars (because of her husband’s death) from an insurance policy the two shared. * At this ▯me, the students were asked if there were any more ques▯ons.. The defense and prosecu▯on went to trial. - The wife was going to be charged with ﬁrst degree murder - which is the unlawful killing of a human being with malice and aforethought. The defense is sta▯ng that Stevens did it but.. suﬀers from ba▯ered woman syndrome..
