An Examination of the Definition of Consent in Supreme Court of Canada Sexual Assault Cases 2007-2017" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, PA, Nov 14, 2017 <Not Available>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1291169_index.html>

Abstract: The current study examines the Supreme Court of Canada’s application of the definition of consent in recent sexual assault cases. The sample includes 15 Supreme Court of Canada cases heard between 2007 and 2017, and published in the online legal database, QuickLaw. To be included in the final sample, the case must have discussed the issue of consent in sexual assault. We compared the language used in the cases to the definition in Canada’s Criminal Code to examine whether factors such as victim age or gender, or offender characteristics such as prior record, affect the complexity of the court deliberations. The findings demonstrate that the threshold that prosecuting attorney’s must meet in order to meet both the evidentiary and persuasive burdens of proof in Canadian sexual assault cases require case-specific nuance that poses difficulty to the establishment of strict and broad rules.

"Jail Time or Prison Time: Which Factors Matter for the Sentence Length Decision using an Expanded Definition of the Total Incarceration Variable?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Nov 01, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p127156_index.html>

Abstract: Recent research examining judicial sentencing decisions has shown the need to further define the incarceration decision and expand the definition of judicial options when sentencing felony offenders (Holleran and Spohn, 2004; Harrington and Spohn, 2005). These prior findings suggest that the legal and extra-legal factors judges use to sentence felony offenders differ for the decision to incarcerate in jail versus prison. The present research extends this examination to the factors that influence sentence length with the more detailed definition of sentencing options. Our research examines the sentence length imposed for felony offenders sentenced to jail and prison separately, in a jurisdiction, Midwestern County, with an indeterminate sentencing system.

Abstract: . This thesis will explore how American society defines Attention Deficit Disorder as an illness and how changing definitions of childhood and child behavior along with the availability of diagnostic tools on the Internet reinforce both the medicalization of behavior and the pharmaceutical treatment to “normalize” behavior. The author will use interviewing of parents and teachers and a content analysis of information on the Internet to explore these topics.
