Denver Post article, shows eight amendment violation, for lack of treatment | SOSEN, Inc.

kyle plumstead's insight:

this artical has alot to do with this pearson opinon about how in Colorado they made a post called Unintended effect of 1998 Colorado law: More sex offenders in for life. he says about how the artical  brought to light that Colorado has not been offering treatment, as is required by law to people who have been sentenced for crimes. These people can only be released after receiving effective treatment and the state is not offering that treatment supposedly because of facilities and financial issues.

This artical states thats Bail also promotes the ideal of being innocent until proven guilty, in that a defendant is not punished with jail time before he or she actually has been convicted. Wich means thats the pearson is inicent until proven giulty in wich why they set bail.

8th Amendment - Eighth Amendment: Prohibits Excessive Bail and Cruel and Unusual Punishment
kyle plumstead's insight:

Here in this artical it says thats the eighth amendment was attached to the Bill of Rights in 1791. It also states about how this amendment became to because it was inspired by the case in England of Titus Oates, who was tried by the court system for multiple acts of perjury, which led to the executions of many people whom Oates had wrongly accused of grave crimes. The subsequent punishment of Oates involved ordinary penalties which were collectively imposed in a brutal and excessive manner.

Eighth Amendment

Eighth Amendment | Kyle Plumstead - eighth amendment | Scoop.it
kyle plumstead's insight:

In this website, it tells u a great meaning of what the eighth amendment  means. it says No Excessive Bail: The first portion of the Eighth Amendment concerns bail—the money paid by a defendant in a criminal case in exchange for his or her release from jail before trial. Bail is returned to the defendant when he or she appears at trial but is forfeited to the government if he or she does not appear. In this way, bail provides an incentive for a defendant to remain in the area and participate in the trial.
