This is an anonymous questionnaire to assess the manner in which people judge various offenses. Below is a brief account of a criminal offense. When you have finished reading the case account, you will be asked to give your personal opinion concerning the case. That is, you are to sentence the defendant described in the case account to a specific number of years of imprisonment. Take as much time as you want in reading and contemplating the case before you. Finally, sentence the defendant. Remember that we are interested in your personal opinion, so please give your own personal judgment and not how you feel others might react to the case or how you feel you should react to it. One other thing – in making your sentence, consider the question of parole as being beyond your jurisdiction. That is, sentence the defendant irrespective of whether or not you feel he should have the opportunity for parole after a certain number of years in prison.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
