While watching “Training Day” I was able to identify three criminal charges from Chapter 940, two charges from Chapter 943, and three charges from 946. I also could determine whether each were a Felony or a Misdemeanor, including the classification and punishment that goes with each. I could also explain if the actors could be charged with “conspiracy” or not. I also explained all the elements of the crime as well. The first crime that I would charge from Chapter 940 is First-Degree Intentional Homicide. S. 940.01 (1)(a) states that whoever intentionally causes death to another human being is guilty of a Class A felony. In this case, Alonzo shot and killed Roger. Before he shoots him, Alonzo says, “Yeah, if you wanna get shit done, you gotta get it done yourself.” Then he shoots Roger. Then afterward he made up a conspiracy with the others who were present, to cover it up. Under s. 939.50 (3)(a), a Class A felony is life imprisonment. I would then charge Conspiracy under s. 939.31. which states that whoever, with intent that a crime be committed, agrees or combines with another for the purpose of committing that crime may, if one or more of the parties to the conspiracy does an act to effect its object, the actor is guilty of a Class B felony. This all applies because Jeff gets shot, to make it look like Roger shot him, and then blamed Jake for shooting Roger. And they all consented to go with it. Under s. 939.50 (3)(b), a Class B felony is imprisonment not to exceed 60 years. The second crime that I would charge from Chapter 940 is Battery: Special Circumstances. S. 940.20 (2) states that whoever intentionally causes bodily harm to a law enforcement officer or firefighter, or to a commission warden, who is acting on duty, and... ... middle of paper ... ...mployee knows the officer or employee is forbidden by law to do in the officer's or employee's official capacity is guilty of a Class I felony. In this case, none of them were acting within the boundaries of the law. Alonzo killed a man, shot another officer, which caused injury, made a conspiracy, and threatened another. Also, all the other officers complied to the conspiracy. Which is all forbidden by law. Under 939.50 (3)(i), a Class I felony is a fine not to exceed $10,000 and/or imprisonment not to exceed 3 years and 6 months. After watching “Training Day” I identified three criminal charges from Chapter 940, two charges from Chapter 943, and three charges from 946, including the statutory elements from each. I determined if each were a Felony or Misdemeanor, including the class and punishment. I also explained if the actors could be charged with “conspiracy.”
