ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW: Your Criminal Procedure Analytical Presentation is a signature assignment that fulfills mastery for the above-referenced Institutional Learning Outcome (ILO) and Program Learning Outcome (PLO). This assignment is worth 150 points. You will view a video scenario that raises multiple issues relating to criminal law and procedure. Using Kaltura, you will then create a 15 to 20 minute video presentation where you will respond fully to specific questions regarding the video scenario. Please keep in mind that your video presentation must be prepared using Kaltura, Be sure to review the steps to complete the assignment (below) for producing and posting your Kaltura video presentation. STEPS TO COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENT: 1) Review the rubric included for this assignment so that you will have a clear understanding of how you will be graded for this assignment. The rubric is located in the Course Information section of the course. 2) Carefully read each question. 3) View the signature assignment video scenario. You are encouraged to view it multiple times as additional issues may occur to you upon repeated viewings. 4) Prepare your presentation before you record your video. Your presentation should reflect thought, preparation and detailed organization. Do not just “wing” it. It is highly recommended that you utilize the outline you prepared several weeks ago. However, you should not just read from your outline when you develop the video. 5) In the Kaltura video format, respond fully to each of the following questions, a-l below: a) Identify the legal standards upon which you based your pat down of Jones. (Reasonable suspicion, probable cause, your hunch?) b) Reviewing your actions on the morning of the arrest, do you believe it was legally justified for you to act on your instinct which led you to search inside Jones’ pockets? If you believe your actions in searching inside Jones’ pockets based on “instinct” were legally justified, explain your reasoning, OR, If you believe your actions were not legally justified in searching Jon‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍es’ pockets based on instinct, explain your reasoning. c) Based on your knowledge of criminal law and procedure, do you think the judge will admit the cocaine into evidence against Jones? If so, explain why. If not, explain why not. Be sure to explain the basis and reasoning of what you believe the judge’s decision would likely be. Describe specifically how the judge might analyze whether the cocaine is admissible. In performing this analysis, will the judge need to hear your testimony? Why? Why not? e) Discuss whether there is evidence to support the charge that Jones intended to distribute the cocaine. NOTE: Jones was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. f) Do you believe you had probable cause to arrest Jones for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute? Why? Why not? g) Do you believe you had probable cause to arrest Jones for either burglary or attempted burglary? Why? Why not? h) Why does Jones’ attorney, Sams, believe that Jones’ arrest was based on an unconstitutional search and seizure and, therefore, the cocaine charge should be dismissed? Do you believe Sams has a strong argument regarding this issue? Why? Why not? i) Why does Sams believe the attempted burglary charge against Jones is unfounded and should be dismissed? Do you agree? Why? Why not? j) After reviewing the arrest report you prepared, the prosecutor arranges a meeting with you, the arresting officer, to discuss the case. Based on your report, the prosecutor has determined that you need to testify at the suppression hearing. Wanting to avoid being surprised at the hearing, the prosecutor wishes to collaborate with you regarding your anticipated testimony. Putting aside for a moment your solemn legal and ethical obligation to testify truthfully, what does the prosecutor tell you with regard to the best course of action you could have undertaken to make the arrest of Jones as strong as legally possible under Terry v. Ohio? (k) Based on your analysis and consideration of the scenario presented as well as the materials presented during the course, what improvements would you make to improve and/or facilitate the efficient administration of justice with due regard for civil rights and civil liberties of civilians? (l) Finally, please share and discuss any experiences with the criminal justice system, whether good or bad that you or anyone you know, (or even a story that you are aware of in the news) may have experienced that was brought to mind by this scenario or in the course as a whole. INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRODUCING AND POSTING YOUR KALTURA VIDEO PRESENTATION: NOTE: You must submit a video for this assignment. Writt‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍en papers will NOT be
