You must summarize the criminal conduct, identify offense by name and type (i.e., mass murder, a crime of violence, stranger to stranger), then discuss the following questions as outlined below.
1. Discuss the crimes they committed, the reason(s) provided as their defense, then discuss how the public responded (press/media coverage) and how the criminal justice system processed the case (trial by judge, jury, plea to full charges, lessor charges or was the case dismissed, diverted, etc). What was the outcome (sentence imposed, if any).
2. Discuss, (based on what is available and your research), what you think are the motivating theories we have studied that explain this behavior. (For example, is this a case of the person knew right from wrong and weighed the risk of being caught [classical/neoclassical] or was this a sociopath, or was the crime the result of trauma or prior abuse experience as a child, or was it based on greed, opportunity, etc. (identify the theory).
3. Finally, provide your thoughts on rehabilitation and the chances of returning and reintegrating this person back to society successfully. (How do you define successfully?).
