Question Description

Topic: Defendants and Victims 

A crime resulting in the death or severe injury to the victim can have a profound impact on a spouse, children, co-workers, Christian brothers and sisters, and the community. Some contend that the focus is too often on the troubled past of the defendant, and not the devastating impact on the victim in such cases. 


  • Hints: Assume you are on a committee that will limit the information that may be presented at trial regarding the defendant’s past, and the impact of the victim’s injuries/death.
  • Propose 2 rules to guide the courts in this matter; 1 dealing with the defendant and 1 dealing with the victim. Provide the scriptural and scholarly basis for each.
