Question description

Bank robbery, extortion, and kidnapping are generally crimes that involve conspiracy since these types of crimes often require the cooperation of two or more people. The case study in the textbook entitled "The Patty Hearst Kidnapping" covered the crimes of kidnapping, extortion, bank robbery, and homicide. The original intent of the SLA members was to conspire to commit kidnapping for reasons of extortion. The plan continued to evolve and the conspiracy deepened among the members. This assignment explores the aspects of conspiracy in relation to a plot that originated with the intent of using extortion as a means to free other members of their group from incarceration.

Complete the following:

  • Read the case study, "The Patty Hearst Kidnapping" (page 135 in the textbook), and do the following:
    • Discuss the objective of the conspiracy for the eight founding members of the SLA.
    • Discuss the crimes Patty Hearst was liable for after she joined the conspiracy.
    • Discuss whether you believe she was a victim or not, and whether or not she should have been charged with a crime.
    • Discuss who you think is liable for the death of the woman in the Crocker National Bank robbery.
