Read about the trials of Gabriel Fernandez and describe the risk factors that contributed to his death. Explain the failures in the system that contributed to the missed evidence. Describe what steps should have been taken to properly address the criminal complaints reported against Pearl Fernandez. In your case study, use the theories and ideas in victimology to identify, define, and describe the problem. Measure the real dimensions of the problem (e.g., explain the perpetrator’s actions), and specify how the victims were handled, as well as the criminal justice process (how evidence was gathered to test the hypotheses). Include the outcome of the prosecution, the victims, and their families.
Your paper must be formatted in the following manner:
- The paper must be 750 words in length (roughly three pages). Only the body of the paper counts towards the length. No information that belongs on a title page or reference page will count towards the length requirement.
- Please follow APA guidelines; provide a title and reference page, use Times New Roman 12 point font, and double-space your lines. You need to have five references, one of which can be your textbook from this class; the references for this can be found in the course syllabus
