CRIM 1100 Week 10 Discussion 2 | Kwantlen Polytechnic University
First read the attached R.v. Vojkovic 'actual court case' which is an attached PDF in this week's moodle. Then click on the latest information about Jeremy: https://www.surreynowleader.com/news/parole-board-denies-release-for-lower-mainland-man-who-murdered-at-15/
Following the aforementioned readings, please answer the following questions:
1. In point form, describe the offender’s familial/childhood upbringing and criminal record:
Offender Hx Background Offender Offence
2. In point form, describe the social, psychological & psychiatric evidence in the court proceeding, which may indicate psychopathic tendencies.
3. Jeremy Vojkovic is a sexual sadist and a potential psychopath. When somebody ‘this young’ has such criminal motivations and behaviours, is society ever safe in letting someone like him out of prison?
Jeremy was tried as an adult under the YOA and is serving a 25 year sentence. He is presently eligible to apply for parole but as recently as February, 2021, he has been denied parole.
