Allen charge explain the problems involved in less

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

Allen charge, Explain the problems involved in less than unanimous verdicts, Explain the meaning of a verdict, and Explain the process for the pronouncement of judgement and the arrest of judgement. With concentration of these key terms that also help to better understand the chapters reading with more clarity: Allen charge, Charging the jury, Consciousness of guilt, Deliberations, Foreperson, Hung jury and Verdict. After reading this chapter I had understanding on how the verdicts, appeals, and sentencing procedures are applied into the court system. I also learned about the difference between a motion for a new trial and a mistrial. The chapter also discussed the grounds for an appeal. The handout key terms with definition also help gained more sense about the whole reading and concept of the chapter: Boykin advisement, Manifest necessity, Mistrial, New trial and Verdict. Our discussion topic for this unit was very interesting since everyone had a different opinion and perspective on Jury Deliberations. In conclusion, I learned a more clarity of the of verdicts, appeals, and sentencing in the court system. We are towards the end of this course but still looking forward to learning the most I can possible these next last two weeks that are left.

    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.
