Chapter 8: Multiple choice questions: 1) In the United States legal system, there are two standards of proof that must be met before the judge decides who wins a case. Civil courts use a lower standard of “preponderance of evidence”, while criminal courts use a higher standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt”. Police are allowed to question the accused without a lawyer present there. Federal crimes can be felony or misdemeanor b is the correct answer. 2) From what I understand from the book for the warrant, police can only conduct for a search without a warrant under these circumstances: -Searching a suspect arrested lawfully - If police have lawfully stopped a car and observe evidence of other crimes in the car. -If police believe that the evidence is about to be destroyed. -Anyone living lawfully at a place and allow the police to search then they can do it. D is the answer 3) Evidence can be included in case search warrant is defective, if police believed at the time of the search that it was valid. -The prosecution cannot use any evidence police found as a result of illegal search. -Any statement made by defendant is useable if police do read him Miranda rights -If prosecution is overturned because of exclusionary rule, prosecution is allowed to retry the defendant. C is he answer 4) My answer for this case is B. According to the book, embezzlement is defined as theft of property by a person in a position of trust or responsibility over those assets.

    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.

    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.
