Our trial process while good is not perfect. Sometimes people are convicted and imprisoned and then the verdict is overturned. What happens when a person is convicted? Do they have any rights? What are they? What happens when a convicted person gets the verdict overturned? Are they innocent? What role does Habeas Corpus have to play?
Have you ever heard of anyone who has had their conviction overturned? What happened? Do you agree with the process? Why?

Week 14 Discussion No cover letters needed Mary lives in Anytown and her family

Week 14 Discussion
No cover letters needed
Mary lives in Anytown and her family lives in NYC. Mary could not travel to NYC for Thanksgiving. Mary’s friend, Renee, invited Mary to her home to spend Thanksgiving. Mary had a great time at Renee’s home and drank a lot. Renee asked her cousin Ray to give Mary a ride home. Renee didn’t know that Ray had been drinking also and should not drive either. As Ray was driving Mary home, he realized that he was drunk and should not drive so he pulled over, parked on the side of a park, to sleep it off in hopes of sobering up. Mary, who was seated in the front passenger seat, was fine with this and she took a nap also. Since it was cold, Ray left the car running to keep the heat on in the car.
The police approached the car and asked Ray and Mary to get out of the car. Upon exiting the car, the police had probable cause to search the car and found a bag of marijuana in the locked glove compartment. Assume Ray and Mary failed the sobriety tests and are legally drunk.
What crimes, if any, can Mary and/or Ray be charged with? Explain why.
Be sure to address each question in your initial post.

***My professor emphasized in her instructions that the writing should be your original work and should reflect your own reaction. Do not summarize other people’s reviews or analysis of the film found on google or any other website/source. The failure to follow this rule will result in a failing grade for the semester and refer the matter to the Department Chair and the Dean’s Office. My professor will use TurnItIn to look for plagiarism in the paper***
