o When a crime is committed by someone who has a powerful status in this society, how is their deviant behavior handled in comparison to someone who has less power in society?I believe when someone commits a crime like sexual assault people are treated differently depending on their status. For the most part depending on the seriousness of the crime people with power and money can make it go away while others have to suffer the consequences of their actions. However, there are cases of powerful people doing things and the justice system makes an example out of them by giving them the worst punishment. I think it can also depend on the lawyer a person receives because there are good lawyers that take cases to build their image, especially when the accused does not have the means for a good lawyer.
