Week 3 Project: Duties of a Prosecutor
Supporting Lectures:
Ethical Systems
Ethics and Courts
Trial Court Workgroup
Prosecutors, as agents for the state, take an oath to uphold the Constitution and to seek justice on behalf of the state and its citizens.
Summarize the duties of a prosecutor in a criminal case, emphasizing those tasks that allow the prosecutor to wield strong influence over the case. Discuss how these particular tasks might present the prosecutor with ethical dilemmas.
Given that a defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty under the American judicial system, is the prosecutor also required to consider the defendant as being among the citizens he or she is protecting? Identify and explain the conflicting moral imperatives present in the duties of a prosecutor.
Recap the landmark Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland (1963). Discuss the ramifications of this decision for prosecutors, with an emphasis on the ethical conflicts that may result.
Discuss the prosecutor’s ethical responsibilities when faced with a case that he or she would rather not pursue. For instance, consider a case in which a formerly battered wife is accused of attempted murder against her husband. Explain whether the “ethics of duty” or “ethics of care” outweigh utilitarianism for criminal prosecutors.

Your company is considering a decision of relocating to another country. You have been given the job of researching different alternatives for relocation. Your report will help the board decide where to relocate, and will help the employees know what to expect in a new country.
The company is considering Costa Rica, Saudi Arabia, and Germany. Your task is to review the legal system and policing style in these countries and produce a 3- to 4-page report in a Microsoft Word document addressing the following:
What is the dominant policing style of each country?
How do the police in each country deal with issues of human rights? Are there any protections in place for the citizens?
Do the countries face any terrorism issues? Would a US company be at risk?
Are there any activities that are legal in the United States but are illegal in the other countries?
If an employee (or the company) were to be prosecuted for a crime, what kind of trial system (adversarial or inquisitorial) would be in effect?
After reviewing the three countries, conclude your report by explaining:
Which country’s police and legal systems seem to most closely resemble the systems of the United States?
Which country would you recommend the company to choose? Why?
You may choose to address each of the above-mentioned points for all the three countries or review each country separately. The Central Intelligence Agency’s World Factbook is a good starting place for information on other countries.
Support your responses with examples.
Cite any sources in APA format.

A persistent controversy in criminal justice involves determining the age at whi

A persistent controversy in criminal justice involves determining the age at which a juvenile should be held accountable for his or her actions. With this context in mind, respond to the following questions:
What factors influence an adolescent’s maturity and ethical development? Explain and provide appropriate reasoning for your answer.
Should there be an across-the-board age limit that defines the border between the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems? Or should it vary on a case-by-case basis? Explain your reasoning.
The 2005 Supreme Court decision in Roper v. Simmons represented a turning point in juvenile justice in the United States. Significantly, the majority opinion even referred to international opinion in the explanation of the justices’ reasoning. Should “international opinion” influence the decisions of the US Supreme Court? Why or why not?
Choose another country and research its procedural law regarding juvenile offenders. Summarize for the class how the country you chose prosecutes and punishes (or treats) juvenile offenders. Are there any aspects of the other country’s procedures that could improve the US system? Explain.

There are three theoretical perspectives of comparative research. Comparative research is crucial in bringing about positive change in the field of criminal justice.
Identify two of those perspectives involving comparative research and describe both with examples. Ensure you address the issues below.
Examine the concept of comparative criminal justice.
Assess how comparisons are made with comparative research.
Your essay must be at least three pages in length, not counting the title page and references page. You must include an introduction. Also, make certain to include a minimum of four sources, All sources used must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Follow 7th edition APA Style when creating citations and references for this assignment.

Throughout the course, we have explored several different theories to explain why crime happens. For this assignment, you will write an application paper in which you analyze a specific criminal incident using information from the class. Each paper will be 1,000 – 1,500 words (approximately 4-5 double-spaced pages), double-spaced, using Times New Roman, 12 point font with 1” margins in a Word Document. Appropriate citation (APA or ASA) should be used and a reference sheet should be attached in the same document (do not save the reference page in a separate document). Your paper should be written in an essay format with an introduction, main points, and a conclusion. Make sure that each section described below is clearly included within the paper. Requirements: Students will choose one person who is currently on death row or who has been executed since 2000 from one of the following lists. 
https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/executions/upcoming-executions#year2020 https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/state-and-federal-info/federal-death-penalty/list-of-federal-deathrow-prisoners 
https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/executions/2020 The student should research the crime that has led to the 
offender’s death penalty conviction as well as the criminal history/background of the person who was convicted of the crime. (You may have to do some searching on a few of these offenders before finding one that you think will work.) After researching, the student should apply at least two theories from the textbook to the offender/crime. The paper should address the following issues: 1) Apply two specific theories from the textbook with specific details from your research to the offender/crime. (Rational Choice Theory is removed as a potential theory. All other theories from the textbook are fair game.) 2) Use the same two theories from above to explain how the theory suggests the crime could have been prevented based on the facts of the case. Example: Rational Choice theory would suggest that increasing the punishment (difficult in this case) or increasing the risk of getting caught could have potentially prevented the crime. Note that you should use citation/references for any sources that you use to research the case as well as the textbook for this class. Any information that you incorporated into your paper (paraphrased, summarized, or quoted), which you did not personally come up with, should be cited. You will be graded on the following: • Clarity of application of theories. Specific details were used from the case. Theories were correctly applied. • Clarity of discussion of how the crime might have been prevented based on the specific theories that were chosen. Use of theories for support and discussion. • Support for claims made in the paper. Research and detail are evident. Information is connected to the textbook and other course materials. • Writing mechanics. Citation is use properly. Correct grammar, punctuation, and other writing mechanics are used. Paper is clearly written. Instructions for the paper are followed.Failure to use citation will result in a zero on the paper. If you have questions about citation, you are strongly encouraged to contact the EIU Writing Center. • Evidence that information has been taken from (plagiarism/“study”) websites where other students’ work is posted will result in a zero and will be reported to the Office of Student Standards. DO NOT CONSULT THESE SITES.
