So even if the court or a jury look at an attacker’s past and see’s he was a star athlete with many friends leading them to lessen the punishment. If they committed sexual assault and get away with it they most likely will attempt and probably succeed at doing it again. The problem Krakauer had with the court system isn’t just that they are not punishing an offender properly of a heinous crime. They are enabling them them to do it again, giving them the chance to ruin another person's life. If looked at, the effects of a sexual assault show why the rapist should serve a life sentence. The victims in this story revealed they were condemned to a life sentence the second they were taken advantage of in that way. While so many will say that rape should be punished the most severely as possible, Krakauer's book revealed the minute it came down to giving a sentence, jurors and judges, and even prosecutors had been and are lenient and soft in their convictions. While many government officials and police in Missoula have tried to change for the better after this scandal came to light, an even bigger one came to the surface from Krakauer's research. Missoula isn’t even near being the pronounced rape capital of the US. It’s even reported that it has a lower rate of reported sexual assaults than many towns it’s size and demographic. In the book Krakauer reported that between January 2008-May 20012 in a

“Did you know that every 98 seconds, an American is being sexually assaulted?”(vaglanos) Sexual assault against every person has come to the concern of our human rights. It is despairing to say that people all over the world deal with these situations or at least know somebody that has. Sexual assault can happen to anyone at anytime,and for the longest time horrific events such as rape and nonconsensual sex have been part of a high crime rate.
Worldwide, big-name cases have been shown to have similar fallacies in their police investigations, and despite this, institutes have yet to adequately correct these mistakes. One particularly prominent example of such a case is the proceedings of Karla Homolka and her husband Paul Bernardo. Two of Canada’s most notorious serial killers, the pair are infamous for the murder of three girls: Tammy Lynn Homolka, Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy, along with the rape of a woman anonymously referred to as “Jane Doe”. There were also over a dozen more rapes performed by Bernardo alone, when he was known as the 'Scarborough Rapist'. Throughout the course of their heinous acts, there were times in which, were the police working together effectively, the two would have been caught much earlier than they were.

I believe in this case along many other rape cases that the defendant if in fact guilty (in this case he surely is, and not just framed by a pissed off ex-girlfriend/wife falsely calling rape as a form of revenge “gone girl” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gone_Girl_(film), should in fact be put to death not only because it is rare that these individuals change but also because it prevents them from harming and destroying the life’s of innocent individuals. In my opinion there are pro’s and cons to both props specially because we are talking about taking another human begins life and in other words deciding to play god with people’s life’s. In prop62 it repeals the death penalty and replaces that with life in prison which could lead to an overcrowd
Born from the light between the bars of my thin, 2 by 1 window, shadowy monsters crept along the edges of my prison cell, of the four bleak walls I call “home”; keeping me company in the dark, for in the Connecticut State Prison, “rapists” must have their own cells. “Rapists” must always be kept alone, for they are much more harmful than burglars, murderers, or kidnappers. “Rapists” must be under special security even when there is no proof that they have committed a single crime.
Personally I feel that the system we have set up for victims are fine the way they are. There is a lot of money set aside either paid by the state or paid by the defendant with the restitution fees. There are a lot of resources there for victim’s, whatever a victim needs help with, the state is able to assist.
Rapists are rarely imprisoned for an adequate amount of time—if any—which is why once convicted, the sentencing that they receive should remain unchanged until it is fulfilled. Too many judges will allow the convict’s sentence to be shortened or changed to house arrest. Which means that survivors of rape have to deal with the fear of being raped again or even killed when their assailant is released from prison earlier than expected. Rape is a very traumatic experience and can happen to anyone. The effects after a traumatizing experience, such as rape, can last a lifetime and lead to the decay of a victim’s life. These outcomes can cause physical and mental damage for the survivor. To make matters worse, victims are essentially punished by the justice system for their own rapes when a rapist is not sufficiently prosecute and there are not any laws to protect the survivors. They are forced to live in fear of being raped again and sometimes are even ridiculed or shunned by peers and family for being raped, Therefore elucidating the impression that the rape was the fault of the victim. Many people who do not sympathize or empathize with the trauma of rape may claim that the survivor wanted to be raped. This is never true, even despite the circumstances. Nobody asks to be raped, not a woman, not a man, not a
An American is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds, and every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. Only 310 out of 1,000 assaults are reported, but only 6 out of 1,000 perpetrators end up in prison (RAINN). Although sexual assault is egregious, these perpetrators are less likely to end up in prison than other criminals. The reason that is seems to be that victims do not report their cases. So why are sexual assault victims afraid to share their stories? Victims often do not report their assault because of many reasons, including the fear of reprisal, the belief that the police could not and would not do anything about the case, or because they simply did not know how to approach an official.
Webster’s Dictionary describes rape as the crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse. Rape is a crime in which most women cannot defend themselves. The fear of rape plagues every woman at some point or another in her life. The traumatic effects of rape vary from mild to severe, from psychological to physical. This paper will evaluate rape, as well as the effects it has on women, the theory behind male dominance and patriarchy, and differences in demographics.
Rape is a crime that Americans hear very little about, yet everyone knows that such acts occur frequently. Rape is a very personal form of violence that continuously impacts the victim for years after it occurs, if not for the rest of the victim’s life. The effects of rape, short-term and long-term, can be catastrophic for the victim, causing them physical and psychological damage (Gluck, 2016). I believe that by using the Rational Choice Theory, rape can be eliminated in today’s society by the use of castration as a punishment for offenders and as a deterrence for possible future offenders.
Women, girls, men, and boys are vulnerable victims of sexual assaults every day in our country. While females experience much higher rates of sexual assaults than males. The problem that this country faces is the lack of being able to track rapist, in addition to the victims that chose not to report their assault of being raped to the police. Issues of under reporting comes from the victims with multiple reasons that hinders them from reporting these heinous criminal acts. Thus, the sad realization is that the perpetrator is usually some one that you know, that you would of never of thought that they could and would, and do sexually assault you.
Rape is an experience which shakes the foundations of the lives of the victims. For many its effect is long term, impairing their capacity for personal relationships, altering their behaviour and values and generating fear, Temkin (1986:17).
Most people think that rape is about sex but it is not. If rape was about getting sex the person would just go and have sex with someone who wants to give it to them. Paying for sex is better than going out and raping someone. Rape is also called sexual assault. Rape is about having power and control over someone. Rape is defined as one person forcing another person, without his or her consent and using violence or threatening violence, to have intercourse or other forms of sexual activity. Usually when people hear about rape they think of a man raping a woman, but rape can happen to anyone. It is one of the worst things that can happen to someone. Some people think that rape is
