Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to agree that criminals convicted of violent sex crimes should be jailed for life. Central Idea: Prohibiting the release of violent sex offenders will eliminate the possibility of future victims at the hands of the previously convicted offender. Introduction Attention: I. February 25, 2010. It was 4 o’clock in the afternoon on a sunny Thursday in Poway, California when 17-year old Chelsea King went for a routine jog in a local park. She was an outgoing, straight-A student who was just a few months away from her high school graduation. Chelsea began jogging and was brutally attacked, raped and murdered by a man named John Gardner-all within 10 minutes. Reveal Topic II. While this situation may seem sad and unfortunate, the real tragedy is that this crime 100% could have and should have been prevented. Relevancy III. Convicted violent sex offenders being released back into society is a threat to our entire community and our country as a whole. Credibility IV. I followed the Chelsea King case extensively which gave me a passion for this topic and trying to help prevent these criminals from accruing more victims in the future . Preview V. I would like to talk to you about why criminals convicted of violent sex crimes should be jailed for life, who they primarily target and the current legislation that is in place to protect citizens from becoming victims.

Body Need: I. Most violent sex offenders are repeat offenders. A.

According to Cornell University Law School’s website, “a sexually violent offense means any criminal offense specified by State law encompassed by aggravated sexual assault or an offense that has its elements engaging in physical contact with another person with the intent to commit sexual assault.”

    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.
