Please view the following video about the criminal justice system before we have a discussion about double jeopardy.
You may need to refer to the United States Constitution and some additional resources about double jeopardy. How many of you have seen Double Jeopardy with Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones? I have seen it once and thought it was a good movie. If you haven’t seen it or need to review the storyline, please feel free to borrow it from a library, rent it, etc.
Do you think that Ashley Judd was indeed correct in saying she could not be retried for the murder of her husband who faked his death and for which she was originally tried and convicted?
