Tricks Prosecutors Play, Bennett L. Gershman Apr 1992

Tricks Prosecutors Play, Bennett L. Gershman

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

Criminal defense lawyers must recognize and challenge prosecutorial misconduct whenever it occurs. In my opinion, prosecutor's today wield greater power, engage in more egregious misconduct, and are less subject to judicial or bar association oversight than ever before. Few defense lawyers or commentators would disagree with these conclusions. Indeed, some types of prosecutorial misconduct have become almost “normative to the system.”

The Impact Of Criminal Justice Administration On The Penal Sanction, Mark Findlay Mar 1992

The Impact Of Criminal Justice Administration On The Penal Sanction, Mark Findlay

Research Collection School Of Law

One of the central philosophies underlying the Report of the Royal Commission into NSW Prisons is revealed in the widely quoted aphorism, "A person is sent to prison as punishment, not for punishment". The conditions under which prisoners are contained feature crucially in assessing both the perceptions and reality of prison as a punishment. Expectations for the experience of imprisonment vary enormously. These expectations in many particular forms have been used to justify the expansion and diversification of the penal sanction. In their most modest representation, however, it is hoped that "by treating all prisoners humanely in a manner befitting ...

Death-Innocence And The Law Of Habeas Corpus, Stephen P. Garvey Jan 1992

Death-Innocence And The Law Of Habeas Corpus, Stephen P. Garvey

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

The legal space between a sentence of death and the execution chamber is occupied by an intricate network of procedural rules. On average, it currently takes between six and seven years to traverse this space, but this interval is expected to shrink. Federal habeas corpus, an important part of this space, is studded more and more with procedural obstacles that bar the federal courts from entertaining the merits of a defendant's claims. By design, these barriers foreclose federal review in order to protect the state's interests in the finality of its criminal convictions, as well as to display ...

Charles Bell, Donald Paradis, and Shirley Tyler were tried in different states for murder. Each was convicted and sentenced to death. Charles Bell was represented at trial by a recent law school graduate who had never before tried a criminal case to completion. Donald Paradis's lawyer had passed the bar exam six months earlier, had never previously represented a criminal accused, and had not elected courses in criminal law, criminal procedure, or trial advocacy while in law school. Shirley Tyler's trial lawyer was also a member of the bar for only a few months. He had defended one ...

Offenders Abroad: The Case For Nationality-Based Criminal Jurisdiction, Geoffrey R. Watson Jan 1992

Offenders Abroad: The Case For Nationality-Based Criminal Jurisdiction, Geoffrey R. Watson

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

When a host state does not prosecute a U.S. national who commits a violent crime abroad, the United States does not exercise jurisdiction. Should the United States eschew nationality jurisdiction, when it may provide the only basis for prosecution? Part II of this article traces the evolution of nationalitybased criminal jurisdiction in U.S. law and asserts that the United States has in fact embraced such jurisdiction in the past, usually to ensure that U.S. offenders abroad were tried by U.S. courts rather than foreign tribunals. Part III examines the current U.S. jurisdictional scheme, which relies ...


The Myth Of Retributive Justice, Brian Slattery Jan 1992

The Myth Of Retributive Justice, Brian Slattery

Articles & Book Chapters

In fairy tales, villains usually come to a bad end, snared in a trap of their own making, or visited with a disaster nicely suited to their particular villainy. Read a story of this kind to children and you will be struck by the profound satisfaction with which this predictable of events is greeted. Yet, if children cheer when the villain is done in, they are just as satisfied when the hero manages to get the villain by the throat but takes pity and spares him. These tales of retribution and mercy, even reduced to their barest bones, seem to ...
