This week our lectures will cover the basics of terminology of victimology and victimization. We will review how the criminal justice system handles the victim not the offender.
For our Unit 1 discussion, please locate a criminal case from your own area. (TENNESSEE) Provide a synopsis of the case itself by identifying the key players and basic information (crime description..ect). Provide a discussion of the how the criminal justice system handled the victim(s) during the case itself. Was the system objective, did the trial play out in the media, and what services can you see needed for the victim? (Remember the accuser is not always the victims…)
