Defenses to Criminal Culpability

The purpose of any murder trial is to prove whether the defendant committed the act or not, and to arrive at a fair decision, both the accused and the victim’s family should be given an equal and fair chance at the trial. A chance to be heard without discrimination, bribery, witness and evidence tampering. Julius Jones case presents a classic judicial miss trial, where due diligence is not followed. The trial involved outrageous government conduct, ranging from racism, bias to gross negligence from both the prosecutor, jury, defense attorney and the presiding judge. The constitution grants individuals right to fair trial just as much as it emphasizes the right to life, this case in no small extent disregarded jones right to fair judicial process by failing to consider all the available options and discerning the different witness intentions before arriving at the death sentence.

From the follow-ups made by various rights activist and the media, it is clear that Mr. Jones did not receive a fair trial. Most of the activities leading to his arrest and eventual death sentence appeared stage-managed. The investigation by the prosecutor and the evidence collection was conducted covertly by cutting deals with another co-defendant, Christopher Jordan who gives leads on where to find the evidence that was substantially relied upon by the judge and the jury to give a verdict. Additionally, the trial was marred with racism as an all-white jury voted in favor of the conviction disregarding all the prevailing circumstance of the case.  Similarly, the court-appointed lawyer did not call for any witness or even the defendant himself to testify despite all the available avenues to do so, which only serves to arouse suspicion out of the outcome. Lastly, the cover-up by the sitting judge who even after being informed of the glaring racism in the jury’s verdict cement my position that the process was not fair hence the verdict.
