Legal Psychology and Victimization

Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my Business Law class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

This week’s reading includes chapters addressing the issues of legal psychology and victimization. Chapter 10 in the Bartol & Bartol (2019) text discusses criminal victimization and the practice of restorative justice. Individual bias and assumptions influence the assessments that are made about other people and about any given situation. Research substantiates culturally-based behavior patterns that may be specific to certain segments of the population, including victimology.

(The goal is to analyze legal psychology as it is implemented in the criminal justice process as well as services provided to victims.)
  • Discuss the role the psychological profile of the offender(s) and victim(s) had on the trier of fact (the judge and/or the jury) and on the sentencing. (The goal is to analyze correctional psychology as it is implemented in the criminal justice process as well as services provided to victims.)

Legal Psychology and Victimization
The Role of Psychological Profile of the Offenders and the Victims in Prosecution and
Defense
In court case resolution, criminal psychology profiling is an important part of the
proceedings through which investigators acquire particular information regarding the offenders
and victims based on their examination of the crime scene. Although the profiles do not isolate
the specific individual that committed the offense, they provide a valuable description of the
offender's demographics and physical stature, thus narrowing down the search population and
enhancing the probability of apprehension and prosecution of those involved. Therefore, the
profiling plays a key role in the presentation of evidence by both the defense and prosecution
because it provides the prosecutor with the combination of essential values and variables of the
offender, which the prosecutor matches with the suspects to build their cases (David, Laura,
