Criminal case
When dealing with a case loads that has doubled to the point o the staff being not able to handle it, it could arise many of problem in not just the criminal division but in all aspect and areas of the courts. Having fifty employees under the active administrator for the court may sound like a lot, however it can be depending on the size of the court and the work load that is given in the courthouse on the daily basis. Having a double in a workload can make many issues arise in the court when dealing with criminal cases, because it is taking too long to reach final disposition. What normally takes one month has almost doubled in time making everything build up and the more time it takes to get to that point, the more money it ‘s going to be for not the lawyers, but also for both parties (plaintiff and defendant). With only two judges things are going to take time and the process of the filling paperwork is going to be in abundance for the judges and the clerks. What can also cause another conflict is, if there is going to two judges hearing criminal cases and at the end of the one month period, what will happen when one of the judges doesn’t get done and reach their deposition until three months ? Meaning one of the criminal case judges is going to have to wait for two month in order to rotate onto the criminal bench, which can cause a major situation? By having such a massive work load there are going to be many tempers flaring in the criminal case proceeding because they feel the process is taking too long. Nonetheless, some and/or maybe both parties will get tired and wonder why the dragging out for so long is. As time goes on there is going to have to be another way to handle the workload as well as making sure things run at respectable time frame before things get so backed up, to the point of hiring more staff to make things go a little faster and easier.

    We are taught that the courts and the Supreme Courts, in particular, are charged with interpreting the Constitution and the laws of the Unites States. We are further taught that the law enforcement should accept such interpertations uncritically and without hesitation. Theory and reality differ for at least four reasons, the Supreme Court sometimes makes decisions on excruciantingly detailed matters that have almost no appliciablility to most law enforcement officers most of the time.

    Does notoriety affect the outcome of a criminal court proceeding? A trial’s outcome should not be based on the notoriety of it, yet it is. Due to media coverage, the length of the trial, and the notoriety of the people who committed the crime, the outcome of the trial is affected. The Manson trials and the trial of Leopold and Loeb are two prime example of how notoriety can affect a criminal court proceeding. An analysis of two criminal court proceedings, the Manson trial and the trial of Leopold and Loeb, reveals that notoriety does affect criminal court proceedings. Even though criminal court proceedings should be based on unbiased information and evidence, overall, the notoriety of the case impacts it.…

    An interesting case that was currently brought before the Supreme Court was Missouri vs. Frye. I found this case interesting due to the injustice that was provided by Frye’s counsel, and that Frye insisted on committing the same crime over and over again even though he knew he had an open case concerning driving under a suspended license. There were many sources and jurisdictions related to criminal law that also relates to this case. Criminal liability is when one takes responsibility for committing a crime, and accomplice liability is when someone helps someone commit a crime. Actus reus means guilty act, mens rea means guilty mind, and concurrence means the equality of rights. Actus reus and mens rea are both necessary in order for a defendant to prove criminal liability.…
