State v. Stu Dents case

Discuss the case as if you are part of the defense team in State v. Stu Dents and the defendant wants to plead insanity.

Answer the following question
• What is required in your state for an insanity defense?

 

State v. Stu Dents

Last year, on the mid-afternoon of October 18th, the defendant, Stu Dents, left his apartment on Main Street and drove to Broadway and 83rd. Two eyewitnesses say the defendant then walked through the Broadway Arms aapartment building to his girlfriend’s apartment, number 156, and entered the apartment.

It is unclear how the defendant entered the apartment, but no signs of force were evident. Witnesses could not say if the defendant used a key. The victim, Uma Opee, was not home at the time. Coworkers say Uma Opee was last seen when she left work at 5:10 p.m.

The body of the victim was found October 19th at 7:45 a.m. behind an abandoned building approximately 5 miles from her residence. The victim was found with cloth stuffed in her mouth, her arms and legs tied with rope restraints, having been stabbed to death.

Uma Opee worked at a music store within walking distance of her apartment. She had a previous criminal record that included shoplifting, drug possession and sale, assault, and disorderly conduct. Uma completed court-ordered rehabilitation just 2 months before her death.

The coroner determined that the victim was stabbed 13 times and bled to death at approximately 11:45 p.m. the evening of October 18th. Cuts and bruises were found on the victim’s body as well as skin particles under her fingernails, signifying a struggle had occurred prior to her death. DNA tests were conducted on the skin particles under the victim’s fingernails and matched the DNA samples of the defendant. A toxicology report showed there were no drugs in the victim’s system at the time of her death.

The victim’s apartment was found to have spots of blood on the carpeting in the living room as well as rope particles matching the rope used to tie the victim’s hands and feet. A blue MDMA tablet, also known as ecstasy, with a “thumbs-up” imprint was found under a table in the living room as well as powder cocaine residue on the living room coffee table.

Upon a search of the defendant’s home, detectives found ecstasy, cocaine, methamphetamine, and jewelry owned by the victim among the defendant’s possessions. Among the jewelry found was an inscribed ring with the victim’s name. The ring was later identified by coworkers as a ring the victim wore on a daily basis, including the day of her disappearance. A small bag containing blue ecstasy tablets, with a “thumbs-up” imprint, were found at the defendant’s residence, which matched the tablet found at the victim’s residence. In a locked room toward the back of the defendant’s home, police found a wall completely covered with photographs of the victim. The photos were of Uma Opee in various locations and situations. Some photos appeared to have been taken without her knowledge. Police estimated over 300 photographs of the victim were stapled on the wall. Police also found love letters to the victim and a journal that was started 6 months prior to the incident. The journal included Stu Dents’ name inside the front cover along with detailed events from his first meeting of the victim up to the night prior to the murder. Entries discussed purchasing rope, rags, and a sharp hunting knife “to fulfill [his] destiny.” Many pages of the journal contained references to aliens, God, and the end of the world. The journal entries stopped on October 17th.

Enough evidence was obtained to make the arrest of Mr. Dents. Officers located Stu Dents on October 21st at 8:45 p.m. at a relative’s home. When police officers tried to take him into custody, he began screaming about the end of the world and aliens working in the police force. He was extremely agitated, irrational, and combative. When Officer T. Chur began to handcuff him, the defendant punched the officer in the face and screamed, “Alien!” As officers subdued the defendant, he repeatedly yelled, “I am God, let me go! I am God!”

The toxicology report of the defendant showed no trace of illegal drugs at the time of arrest.

The state charges Stu Dents with the following:

• Homicide
• Assault of a police officer
• Kidnapping
• Burglary
• Crimes related to drugs

Entrepreneurial Marketing Scenario Summary In this scenario, you are a marketing consultant to a small business owner, Sammy Winder. Mr.Winder has worked his whole life in the restaurant business, and 6 months ago he was tired of working for someone else and decided to open a new restaurant/bar/jazz club. Lately, Mr. Winder’s Blue Note Café is not doing well

You Decide Assignment Title: ? Entrepreneurial Marketing
Scenario Summary
In this scenario, you are a marketing consultant to a small business owner, Sammy Winder. Mr.Winder has worked his whole life in the restaurant business, and 6 months ago he was tired of working for someone else and decided to open a new restaurant/bar/jazz club.
Lately, Mr. Winder’s Blue Note Café is not doing well. The initial buzz of opening his jazz club has subsided and his restaurant is often only half full on Friday and Saturday evenings; if this continues, he may be forced to close his restaurant. He needs your help! As with most young businesses, Sammy has limited capital to invest in a marketing plan, so he has asked you, his good friend, to create a marketing plan that will drive traffic to his restaurant on a limited budget.

Your Role/Assignment
You have been a marketing professional for several years. Sammy Winder is a good friend and needs your help and expertise. You have been hired by Mr. Winder to develop a low-cost marketing strategy to increase sales and save his newly opened restaurant.

Activity
According to the American Marketing Association, marketing is “an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stake holders.”
As such, you must use your knowledge of marketing to create a plan, with a budget of just $1,000 per month, to increase customers for Mr. Winder’s restaurant. As you will find in our textbook, you will need to utilize a grassroots campaign to drive more customers to the Blue Note Café.
When new companies form, they are cash-strapped. As an entrepreneur, you must be creative with your resources to make your capital stretch. You will need to learn about guerilla marketing tools and techniques, which act as nontraditional, grassroots, and captivating marketing ideas—that gain consumers’ attention and build awareness of the company for little money.
Your proposal should be 3– 4 pages in length with a detailed list of your strategies as well as a detailed budget for a 3-month marketing campaign. In your budget, be sure to do research and outline the various costs of your plan.
Re-read your textbook and do some secondary research on guerilla marketing. In your research find out what other companies are doing to create a buzz with a limited budget. Be sure to think about all the inexpensive ways to market to people in a local community in order to increase awareness and promote the Blue Note Café brand.

Be sure to listen to Mr. Winder as he describes his problems; listen for clues on ways you can differentiate his business and create excitement to the potential customers. Most importantly, BE CREATIVE! Guerrilla marketing campaigns are most successful when the marketers get “out of the box” with ideas to create awareness and loyalty.
Have fun!

Title/Role/Character Script – Text & Audio
Mr. Sammy Winder,
Entrepreneur, Restaurant/Club Owner and Jazz Lover
Hey buddy, great to see you again! Thanks for dropping by the club…you still enjoy jazz music don’t you? This place has the best local musicians in town…many of these guys learned there trade at our local university!
Anyway, I know you are a big shot at that marketing firm downtown, and I really need your help. My business is failing. It makes no sense, since I have a great restaurant, reasonable prices, and amazing entertainment, but for some reason, I can’t seem to attract business.
We opened 3 months ago, and for the first few weekends, we had to turn people away. Everything was awesome…then, the crowds disappeared. I know that we have a great place, but where was everyone? We did some surveys to solicit feedback to determine if we have any problems. The results pointed out that we have no real issues. As a matter of fact, the results confused me further— the people overwhelming loved our club.We found that they loved the atmosphere; the food was great; and most of all, the customers all stated we were the only place in town that you could dance to jazz music, while enjoying a great meal. It was a “romantic paradise” one person said. One couple even got engaged on our dance floor!
So what happened…I just don’t know? It is frustrating; we have a great place so I really can use your expertise in generating a buzz about our place. How can we get more customers to know about our brand? I know if we can get more awareness of our club, this restaurant will take off. Of course, I have very little money so we can only spend about $1,000 a month on marketing.
Could you put together some strategies for us to follow in the next 3 months to increase sales? I also need a detailed budget to show to my investors. I really appreciate your help! Enough business for now— you look hungry, let me call the waiter over here and get you the house special

The justice model is a sentencing approach that uses determinate sentences, or fixed punishment terms; calls for the elimination of parole; and makes treatment voluntary.

The justice model is a sentencing approach that uses determinate sentences, or fixed punishment terms; calls for the elimination of parole; and makes treatment voluntary. The justice model views crime reduction and successful incarceration as possible only if all offenders serve the same sentence for the same crime. This model posits that crime will continue or decrease to the extent that all offenders are treated the same.

In this assignment, you will prepare a written critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the justice sentencing model.

Although the Viet people have a long history, our course begins in the 19th century with Vietnam as part of a larger area called French Indochina, a colony of France. The colonization took decades, but for our purposes the process of French control was complete in 1893

Although the Viet people have a long history, our course begins in the 19th century with Vietnam as part of a larger area called French Indochina, a colony of France. The colonization took decades, but for our purposes the process of French control was complete in 1893.

Many nations of historic significance matured to the point where they sent out colonial settlers to faraway lands and over time eventually extended dominion over those lands. The United States also came into possession of faraway territories but without the same process of sending talented citizens to those lands with an agenda of establishing domination over them or of establishing an empire.
