Hello all, you have options this week – you can pick either one of the two threads to respond to – your choice!
Option 1: “Affirmative Defenses”
Compare and contrast the affirmative defenses identified in this week’s textbook reading, and explain and what is meant by the sentence, “The defendant is competent to stand trial.”
Explain the Supreme Court case of [Jackson v. Indiana] and how it is applicable to the states and competency for criminal liability. Do you agree with the case? Why or why not?
Option 2: “Solicitation vs. Conspiracy to Commit a Crime”
This week, we will be comparing and contrasting the required elements of solicitation of another to commit a crime versus the required elements of conspiracy to commit a crime. Using the Internet or Library resources, find a real-world example of one of the two crimes (either solicitation or conspiracy – your choice) from a news article and please provide the link. Give us a brief synopsis of the facts, and then think like a prosecuting attorney – present what crime you would charge the defendant with, and demonstrate how the facts prove each individual element of the crime you have chosen.
