Episode Summary

EDIT
Crime And Punishment
AIRED:
Does a so-called three strikes law violate the Constitution? In this case, a person convicted of a misdemeanour is sent to prison for life, because he had previously been convicted of two felony counts. The issues raised included due process (the criminal got a longer sentence than a first-time offender), double jeopardy (the criminal was sentenced more harshly because of prior convictions), cruel and unusual punishment (a life sentence for a misdemeanour), and ex post facto laws (punishing a past crime using today's standards). In the end, the Court voted to uphold the conviction.moreless
