Assignment 1: Victims’ Rights

The death penalty is one of the most controversial topics in the criminal justice system. In the US criminal justice system, the government represents the victim. At the time of sentencing, many states allow victim impact statements. There are additional issues to consider in the application of the death penalty. Some of these issues are race, age, and cost.

Use the Argosy University Online Library resources to research the role of the victims in sentencing a defendant.

As we go to Part B of the project, a more conciliatory tone might help us get better recommendations despite staying on course with the thesis statement and the null hypothesis.
