Question description

For this week's assignment, you will write an 2-3 paragraph essay about Rape Shield laws. Be sure to address all prompts and cite your sources in APA format.

Before Rape Shield Laws were enacted, defendants frequently attempted to show their victims as less than chaste by presenting evidence the victims were sexually experienced. The tactic effectively discouraged many victims from coming forward and many rapes went unreported.

Please respond to the following prompts:

    • Does the Rape Shield Law provide a good way to address the problems of underreporting sex crimes?
    • Does the Rape Shield Law prevent the defendant from having a fair trial by keeping a valid part of the story from the ears of jurors?
    • Is a person's past sexual history relevant to his/her ability to refuse sex on any given occasion?

This essay should include the following:

    • A 2-3 paragraph submission that is free of spelling and grammar errors.
    • You will be assessed on the rationale you use in addressing the questions/issue posted, and how well you justify your argument regarding this issue.
    • Your response must be thought provoking, have well developed ideas and/or opinions, and should reference any supporting material from the text, lecture or other sources you have used to complete the assignment.
    • You may use your text or the Internet as a reference, but remember to cite your sources according to APA guidelines.
