Case 1: Do you think the defendant in the first case had some domestic problems such as abuse or other issues that would have made her commit the crime? If so what type of issues do you think she is facing? What can she do to overcome issues in her life?
Case 2: Defendant two seemed to be accompanied by both a good influence and a bad influence at the scene of the crime. Why might she have listen to the bad influence knowing that it was wrong and although she was warned not to do so? Do you think peer pressure is more powerful than knowing between wrong and right and being warned?
