- This week, we will be comparing and contrasting the required elements of solicitation of another to commit a crime versus the required elements of conspiracy to commit a crime. Using the Internet or Strayer University Library resources, find a real-world example of one of the two crimes (your choice) from a news article and please provide the link. Give us a brief synopsis of the facts, and then think like a prosecuting attorney – present what crime you would charge the defendant with, and demonstrate how the facts prove each individual element of the crime you have chosen.
- In your responses this week, as you view your colleagues’ posts, think like a defense attorney – using the link they provided to the incident or case, review the facts and see if you can present a defense to the charges.
Note: an exemplary score will include an original post of at least 150 words, with a well-written response to at least one other student.
