Untangling Double Jeopardy In Mixed-Verdict Cases, Lissa Griffin 2010 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Untangling Double Jeopardy In Mixed-Verdict Cases, Lissa Griffin

Pace Law Faculty Publications

This Article attempts to describe and untangle the confusion leading up to and resulting from the Yeager decision. Part II examines the four distinct double jeopardy areas presented in Yeager, with particular emphasis on the two conflicting precedents of collateral estoppel and the non-finality of a hung jury. Part III closely examines the Yeager decision itself. Part IV analyzes Yeager in light of its tangled doctrinal history and places it in the context of the Court's several other short-lived and rapidly reversed precedents. The Article concludes that the Court's holding in Yeager is neither justified by its precedent ...


Modeling The Effects Of Peremptory Challenges On Jury Selection And Jury Verdicts, Roger Allen Ford 2010 University of New Hampshire School of Law

Modeling The Effects Of Peremptory Challenges On Jury Selection And Jury Verdicts, Roger Allen Ford

Law Faculty Scholarship

Although proponents argue that peremptory challenges make juries more impartial by eliminating “extreme” jurors, studies testing this theory are rare and inconclusive. For this article, two formal models of jury selection are constructed, and various selection procedures are tested, assuming that attorneys act rationally rather than discriminate based on animus. The models demonstrate that even when used rationally, peremptory challenges can distort jury decision making and undermine verdict reliability. Peremptory challenges systematically shift jurors toward the majority view of the population by favoring median jurors over extreme jurors. If the population of potential jurors is skewed in favor of conviction ...

"Los Bienes Jurídicos Colectivos En El Derecho Penal. Consideraciones Sobre El Fundamento Y Validez De La Protección Penal De Los Intereses Macrosociales", Elky A. Villegas Paiva

Elky A. Villegas Paiva

El trabajo aborda la cuestionada intervención del Derecho penal en la protección de los bienes jurídicos colectivos. Se parte de destacar el condicionamiento que ejerce la sociedad del riesgo en la configuración del moderno Derecho penal. Posteriormente se realiza una breve descripción sobre el origen de los bienes macrosociales en el campo penal, para luego analizar los presupuestos de merecimiento y necesidad de pena, condiciones que deben superar aquellos intereses –individuales o colectivos- para que su tutela penal sea legítima. Finalmente se examinan las técnicas de tipificación frecuentemente empleadas para la protección penal de estos intereses colectivos, pues es aquí ...

Ending Death By Dangerousness, William W. Berry III 2010 University of Mississippi Main Campus

Ending Death By Dangerousness, William W. Berry Iii

William W Berry III

The use of the death penalty (both in number of new death sentences and actual executions) has been steadily decreasing in the past decade. This decrease has largely been attributed to two phenomena: (1) the continued discovery of individuals on death row who are actually innocent of the crimes they committed and (2) the increasing use of life without parole as a sentencing alternative to the death penalty. Abolitionists have successfully seized upon the first of these in raising continuing doubts about the use of the death penalty. This article proposes a deeper exploration of the second, the availability of ...
