Standard Criminal Jury Instructions are online

first_img Standard Criminal Jury Instructions are online Most people seldom think about them unless they face a jury on criminal charges. Defense lawyers, prosecutors, and judges obsess over them. They are a part of every criminal jury trial. But until now, they were among the least accessible and most demanded legal research materials in Florida.No more. The state’s Standard Criminal Jury Instructions now are online, linked from the front page of Florida Supreme Court Web site at www.florida“This year-long project fulfills a major goal of mine,” said Chief Justice Barbara J. Pariente. “Our clerk and public information offices receive hundreds of calls and e-mails a year begging us to put the criminal jury instructions on-line. Well, now we’ve done it.”The instructions are available in a form that easily can be cut and pasted into a final version during the often intense negotiations among lawyers at the end of a criminal trial. Standard jury instructions are never used verbatim; they must be customized to each case.Being on the Internet in electronic format, the instructions now can be updated instantaneously for everyone to use. Previously, attorneys and judges had to await yearly publications and also peruse court decisions to see if any changes had been made that they might have to use. Mistakes were all too easy to make, sometimes resulting in the need for a new trial.Lester Garringer, a senior attorney in the Office of the State Courts Administrator and former prosecutor, handled the legal editing of the instructions and explained their significance.“Providing the instructions online guarantees that the ones used by the court in criminal cases are up to date,” he said. “No longer will a person have to wait for a yearly supplement in order to have a complete set of instructions. The online format gives every attorney the opportunity to quickly and easily prepare a customized set of instructions for use at every criminal trial.”The online instructions replace a paper book that totaled more than 800 pages and that, in many law libraries, may not always have been kept up-to-date. It often was hard to tell exactly when any particular copy had been updated. Research time could be lengthy and expensive when attorneys’ fees or salaries are considered.Putting the instructions online also presented significant challenges to the court’s Web programmers. Alan Neubauer, of the Information Systems Services Office, handled primary programming for the collection, and final Web design and programming was handled by Web Administrator Tricia Knox in the court’s Public Information Office.

Massacre in Ogossagou Mali

Massacre in Ogossagou Mali

first_imgIġsma ta’ suldati maqtula fil-kamp militari ta’ DiouraIġsma ta’ suldati maqtula fil-kamp militari ta’ Dioura “The Bishops of Mali together with the evangelical community have sent a message of condolence to the nation, the President of the Republic and the Minister of Religious Affairs, for the massacre in the village of Ogossagou.Next Sunday there will be prayers for the victims, the wounded and their families and for peace in Mali”, said Fr. Alexandre Denou, Secretary General of the Bishops’ Conference of Mali, as reported by Fides News Agency.On March 24, at least 160 people of the Peuls ethnicity were massacred in the village of Ogossagou, in the center of the Country. “The crime was attributed to Dogons hunters, or at least to people dressed like them,” said Fr. Alexandre. “The Dogons are a sort of confraternity of hunters. Hunting is not the job that gives them a living, in most cases, the Dogons are farmers who gather in this confraternity to hunt and create self-defense groups.”The Peuls are a population of farmers who often come into conflict with other farmers for the division of land and water sources. Mali, which has had to face the attempt of secession in the north, where jihadist groups are raging, lives in a situation of profound insecurity.“Last Sunday as a Church we prayed for the victims of the Dioura massacre,” recalled Fr. Alexandre. On Sunday, March 17, in the assault on the military camp of Dioura, 23 Malian soldiers lost their lives. The attack was perpetrated by a group affiliated with Al Qaida.“The Catholic Church and the Evangelical Church are working together to promote peace, and together we appeal to the Malian nation so that concord and not division may prevail,” concluded Fr.
