A newspaper about a Battered Women
The newspaper article “Supreme Court Frees Battered Woman” by Tonda Maccharles, is a newspaper reports of a five years trial of Nicole Ryan, who was charged with trying to hire a Mountie to kill her abusive husband Michael. Ryan won and was acquitted.
However, this case brings up a controversial issue laced with guilt versus innocence and impunity versus punishment. The controversy about Ryan’s of this case comes stems from the verdict of the Supreme Court of Canada.
the controversial issue about Ryan’s case The controversy of this case is mostly because of the lack of deep understanding on the situation that Ryan was facing and shortage the sarcity of legal recourse in for this kind of situation. The judges, the professor Elizabeth, and Ryan’s lawyer, Pink are entangled struggled with “duress” and “self-defense” as they try tried to make sense of Ryan’s acquittal. There are two options juristical to judical reason of for her innocence: but there are only two options to choose: duress and self-defense; neither one of them which can apply applied to Ryan’s this case.
As these theories are arguments had employed before, the analyses show that there were many three main factors that to caused her to commit a crime. First, there was the abuse and threat by her husband as she resisted his sexual advances. her to seek pleasure. Second, Then she had has high-level criminal tendencies pre-meditated motives to kill for self-defence due to because she was exposed of criminal activities (her husband’s violence, for example). And third, Finally, the justice system was fail inadequate to protect her and the social environment around her blocked does not guarantee her an opportunity to achieve the goal of having in pursuit of a happy life.
These are the reasons people should to used to defense the innocent of Ryan justify her innocence. The criminal justice system needs to take effort on reforms and innovations innovate of or in establishing more greater legal recourses rather than just using duress and self-defense. The ruling should be clear and convincing.
If she has money, she will have the best lawyers to come up with something novel. Just look at the OJ Simpson case!
