should be governed by the standards that are brought forth by the Frye v. United States, 293 F. 1013 (D.C. Cir 1923). In this case the scientific data collected on the testing are not admissible unless testing has developed or improved a point where experts in the field widely share the same view that the results are accurate. Through debate and references of multiple case the courts deem that the testimony to be inadmissible (Theodore Robert Bundy v. State of Florida, 1985). The courts found that Kimberly Leach was kidnapped by Bundy sometime between 9 to 10 am on the 9 February 1978. Her body was found 45 miles from the scene of the abduction on the 7 February 1978 in a hog pen. Kimberly died from homicidal violence to neck region of the body. She was found unclothed except for a pullover shirt around her neck. Her panties and jean pants were found near the body blood was detected in the jeans also there were rips and tears in her clothing. The court found the kidnapping to be heinous, atrocious and cruel and that it was extremely wicked, shockingly evil, vile and with utter indifference of human life. The court sentenced Theodore Robert Bundy to death (Theodore Robert Bundy v. State of Florida, 1985). Theodore Robert Bundy was sentenced to death by the request of the government this punishment when applied to the punishment theory would be under the retribution theory or the just deserts theory. This theory is defined as an offender would receive a punishment that is deserved based on the seriousness of their criminal acts (Lippman, 2016). So, the government felt the kidnapping and actions taken against Kimberly Leach and the other thirty-six victims to be the sole reason that they would impose such a penalty. As stated in the introduction paragraph Timothy McVeigh and Theodore Bundy terrorized the community with their sick and evil plans to wreak havoc and chaos with disregard of human life. These offenders received the correct sentencing for their crimes against humanity. The lives that were affected by theses predators received justice to the full extent of the law.

    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.
