Statutory Rape

...Statutory rape can sometimes be an unjust law because of the age concept, gender differences and rationality of the individual. Statutory rape is a non-forcible sexual intercourse with a person who is younger than the age of consent. The Age of Consent is the age at which a person is deemed by Massachusetts law to be capable of consenting to, and engaging in, sexual acts. In This Commonwealth, statutory rape is outlawed by Massachusetts General Law Chapter 265: Section 23 (Rape and Abuse of a Child): This law is based on the premise that until a person reaches the age of maturity, that person is legally incapable of consenting to sexual intercourse therefore anyone who engages in sexual activity of any type with a partner under the applicable Age of Consent is breaking the law. He or she can be charged with statutory rape or any other crimes ranging from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on the jurisdiction in which they are prosecuted. The age of consent ranges from 14 to 18 years of age, although in more than half of the states -including Massachusetts - the age of consent is 16. The primary intention of statutory rape laws is to protect teenage girls and, recently, boys as well, from being sexually preyed upon by adults. By design, the laws are meant to deter and punish adults who have sex with minors. By definition, these laws are targeting non-forcible sexual activity Some states and counties are generally not pursuing teenage "lovers" who are close in age.......

Statutory Interpretaion

...What is Statutory Interpretations? Statutory Interpretations is the process by which Judges interpret Acts of Parliament. 75% of cases heard by the House of Lords are concerned with statutory interpretation. Statutory Interpretation is the process of reading and applying statutory laws, and judges trying to find out the intention of parliament when passing the law. Sometimes the words of a statute have a plain and straightforward meaning. But in most cases, there is some ambiguity (can be interpreted in more than one way) or vagueness (unclear) in the words of the statute that must be resolved by the judge. An example of where the language was unclear can be seen in the case of Twining v Myers (1982), where court has to decide whether roller skates amounted to a ‘vehicle’.  There may be other cases where the meaning of words change over time, for example the Offences Against a Persons Act 1861 uses the word “malicious” and “grievous” which either would not be used in this modern day and time, or if used have different meanings to which was intended when the Drafts Man of the act write it. Other means of when Statutory interpretations would be needed is when Drafting errors are present in the bill, this happens mostly when bills are rushed in times of emergency. Problems of interpreting statutes? The problems with interpreting statues is that Judges have to decide what parliament meant by a particular piece of legislation. In most cases judges correctly judge of what the......

Statutory Rape

...Name: Course: Lecturer: Date: Are Statutory Rape Laws Patronizing To Girls and Discriminatory To Boys Cover letter The purpose of the essay was to show that there is discrimination in the statutory laws where the boys are the ones who suffer. When there is sex between two teenagers below the age of 16, the girl I protected while the boy is charged. Charging the boy alone while they are both supposed to be protected by the same law is discriminatory. The essay seeks to show this using the case of a 14-year-old boy and three girls. From completing the topic, I learn more about statutory rape and the legal age of consent to sex. I learnt that statutory rape was initially meant for protecting girls from older male advances. However, with the advocacy of equal rights for both sexes, all children must be protected. During the research, I encountered several problems especially with finding relevant sources for information. Most scholarly articles addressed statutory laws without considering discrimination of boys. Therefore, finding the relation between statutory rape and discrimination of boys was challenging. Additionally it was hard to find materials relating to young boys since most statutory rape cases focused on older mature offenders with minors. I enjoyed learning about the statutory law and its consideration for boys in the current are. In addition, I enjoyed learning about the arguments posed by both sides, despite supporting the claim that it......

Statutory Rape

...Research Paper When you look at the different states, the majority of them have the same laws for age of consent, but a few of them are different. The purpose of me researching this is because I have family members that is a Defendant of statutory rape, but in reality he is the victim. I believe he is the victim because he is the one having to sit in prison and waste his life away because of the laws in Washington State, while the Victim is out living her life and not being affected at all. The legal definition of statutory rape is: “Statutory rape generally refers to sex with a person who is under an age specified by statute. At this point, most state laws call it something else.” This particular case was reported on the twentieth day of the second month in the year of 2008. He was sentenced on the seventeenth day of the third month in the year of 2008, almost a month after sitting in the county jail. He was charged with Rape of a Child Second Degree, in Washington state this means, “A person is guilty of rape of a child in the second degree when the person has sexual intercourse with another who is at least twelve years old but less than fourteen years old and not married to the perpetrator and the perpetrator is at least thirty-six months older than the victim.” If you look at both sides of the case (Victim vs. Defendant) you might ask your self, “How does this case affect both the victim and their (in this case a girl) family, and the defendant and their (in this......

...Body mass index (BMI), also called the Quetelet Index, and is a calculation used to determine and the amount of amount of body fat we have. Not everyone who is a little bit over weight will benefit from weight loss. However BMI is not a diagnostic tool. A person may have a high BMI. But to determine if excess weight is a health risk, a doctor would recommend they be further tested. These assessments might include skin fold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The use of BMI allows us to compare our weight status to the general population According to the BMI weight status categories, anyone with a BMI over 25 would be classified as overweight and anyone with a BMI over 30 would be classified as obese. It is important to remember that BMI is not a direct measure of body fatness and that BMI is calculated from our weight and height which includes both muscle and fat. As a result, some people may have a high BMI but not have a high percentage of body fat. Highly trained athletes may have a high BMI because of their increased muscles rather than increased body fat. Although some people with a BMI in the overweight range from 25.0 to 29.9 may not have excess body fatness, most people with a BMI in the obese range is getter then 30 will have increased levels in body fat. The BMI number is calculated the same way for children and adults, the way it’s used to interpret the meaning of the BMI number......

The liver and pancreas also play a role in the digestive system because they produce digestive juices. The endocrine system consists of eight major glands that secrete hormones into the blood. These hormones, in turn, travel to different tissues and regulate various bodily functions, such as metabolism, growth and sexual function. The immune system is the body's defense against bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that may be harmful. It includes lymph nodes, the spleen, bone marrow, lymphocytes (including B-cells and T-cells), the thymus and leukocytes, which are white blood cells. The lymphatic system includes lymph nodes, lymph ducts and lymph vessels, and also plays a role in the body's defenses. Its main job is to make is to make and move lymph, a clear fluid that contains white blood cells, which help the body fight infection. The lymphatic system also removes excess lymph fluid from bodily tissues, and returns it to the blood. The nervous system controls both voluntary action (like conscious movement) and involuntary actions (like breathing), and sends signals to different parts of the body.

Statutory Interpretation

...in the statutes must be solved by courts, it is true that have some ambiguity or have a unclear meaning of statutes' words in most case. Statutory interpretation allows the judge to have a clear meaning of what is meant by the statutes. Hence, statutory interpretation is an important process when the case is judging by court and courts would seek to interpret the statutes at full steam. In the modern legal system, there are four general approaches to construe statutes that are respectively the golden rule, the literal rule, the purposive approach and the mischief rule. The quoted statement by Lord Denning means, when statute is interpreting, the judge need to understand the entire content of statutes and ascertain the intention of Parliament that better than reading different section of statues and to understand them separately, or words by words. In other words, Lord Denning said that by applying purposive approach better than literal rule. We need to understand and ascertain the meaning of four approaches before discussing the statement by Lord Denning. Whichever approaches or rules may be applied by court, giving a clear meaning of particular words in the statute or interpret the basic meaning of statute. The literal rule try to give a plain, straightforward and ordinary meaning to the words of statutes in the context of statutory provision or the Act, Maybe this word has a simply and popularly understood meaning but this word would has no more one meaning in the......

Statutory Interpretation

...Statutory interpretation is process of interpreting statutes by the judges. The definition of statutes have had very specific words but indeed the judges would still need the statutory interpretation to help them. The reason of this, even how, the words in the statutes are specific but sometimes the words contains ambiguity and vagueness in words. On top of that, each word could give us different meaning. For example, we can find in the Oxford Dictionary where a word would contain at least one meaning. Hence, without the statutory interpretation, a lot of judges would have trouble in deciding their judgments in deciding a case. This essay will analyse the four rules, intrinsic aids and extrinsic aids and presumptions in the interpretation of statutes. There are four different rules of interpretation in English law which are the literal rule, the golden rule, the mischief rule and the purposive rule/approach. Each rule take different approaches and some judges prefer to use one rule while other judges prefer another rule. Traditionally, the English courts have taken a literal approach to the interpretation of statutes. The Literal Rule is the cornerstone of this approach. The literal rule requires the courts to give the words of a statute their plain meaning. It is for a court to interpret Parliament’s intention from what it has actually said – not from what it thinks it meant to say. This can produce some surprising results as, in practice, words seldom have a single......

Statutory Law

...The literal rule of statutory interpretation should be the first rule applied by judges. Under the literal rule, the words of the statute are given their natural or ordinary meaning. They don’t interpret meaning. Lord Diplock in the Duport Steel v Sirs case (1980) defined the rule: “Where the meaning of the statutory words is plain and unambiguous it is not then for the judges to invent fancied ambiguities as an excuse for failing to give effect to it’s plain meaning because they consider the consequences for doing so would be inexpedient, or even unjust or immoral.” This definition says that a judge should not deviate from the literal meaning of the words even if the outcome is unjust. If they do they are creating their own version of how the case should turn out and the will of parliament is contradicted. R v Harris (1836) 7 C & P 446 concerned a case where the defendant bit off his victim's nose. The statute made it an offence 'to stab cut or wound' the court held that under the literal rule the act of biting did not come within the meaning of stab cut or wound as these words implied an instrument had to be used. Therefore the defendant's conviction was quashed. The golden rule is an exception to the literal rule and will be used where the literal should be used first, but if it results in absurdity, the grammatical and ordinary sense of the words may be modified, so as to avoid absurdity and inconsistency, but no further. So, The Golden Rule is a modification of......

...BODY DISSATISFACTION: ROLE OF THE MEDIA “I allowed Social Media to define what I thought of my own body, and now I realize that no matter how thin you are, no matter how beautiful you are, someone will always call you ugly because it is impossible to please the world.” (Demi Lovato, 2014). In today’s society young women are constantly struggling mentally, physically and psychologically with accepting their own bodies. According to the Gale Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders (2003), this trend started since the Renaissance period where self-starvation was practiced for religious purposes, however due to the growing influence of the Media, eating disorders have become more popular in the twentieth century and as a result the death rate has climbed horrifyingly (Frey, 2003). The Media has a heavy influence on how young women in the United States view and modify their bodies to achieve a perfect body type, however this ideology can lead to negative outcomes such as; low self-esteem, body dissatisfaction and eating disorders, as well as affect other spheres of life. In examining the role of the Media and the negative effects it has on an individual one can clearly see that the issue have gotten to the point where young women live a life where they are mentally tormented and pressured to achieve one body type. Media attacks the subconscious mind and imprint false images of beauty which in turn leads to downward social comparison and allows young women to feel insecure in their own......

Sources include previous Acts of Parliament on the same topic, earlier case law, dictionaries of the time, and the historical setting. In addition, Hansard can now be considered. Hansard is the official report of what was said in Parliament when the Act was debated. The use of Hansard was permitted following the decision in Pepper (Inspector of Taxes) v Hart (1993) where the House of Lords accepted that Hansard could be used in a limited way. It permits Hansard to be used where the legislation is ambiguous or obscure or leads to an absurdity, and the material relied on comprises one or more statements by a Minister or other promoter of the Bill and such other parliamentary material as is necessary to understand the statements, and the effect and the statements that were relied on have to be......

...Body by Body When people view art of course nudity is going to appear somewhere along the way. Many paintings and sculptures from Greek and Roman times almost always depict nude people or gods. But what are the artist's doing today? Some choose to recreate these ancient versions, others take a modern approach. Some of the things to consider when looking back at this art are the form, meaning, and the values. When looking at sculpture such as Antonio Canova's Three Muses or Daniel Edwards’s celebrity sculptures you can see the similarities and differences in their work. There are many different forms of art. Sculpture is one of the many forms and in the fifth century nude statues were seen as the perfect form of representation of the human body. Usually it was normal to see nudity in everyday life and represented a form of ideal, innocence, desire, or purity. In the sculptures Nymph and a Scorpion by Bartolini and Amanda Hall's Modern Sculpture of a Nude Woman show both movement and emotion. Both smooth sculptures have similar poses, hair pulled back and show subtle movement. Nymph is carved from white marble while the nude woman is sculpted out of metal or maybe a dark marble. Hall's sculpture fits in perfectly with the backdrop of the green trees and flowers along with the pond. I can imagine Bartolini’s sculpture placed in a grassy field as well. Even though one is modern and the other antique they are not so different. All works of art have different meanings; while......
