Learning Goal: I’m working on a humanities discussion question and need support to help me learn.
Describe the criminal trial process of Rex Allen Krebs. Who were the players in the trial process? What is the purpose of sentencing and do you feel the sentence he received was justified? Outline the challenges of the death penalty. Do you see any ethical challenges when seeking the death penalty? Were there any ethical challenges in the trial and sentencing of Rex Krebs? Would the sentencing occur today in Florida? Why or why not?
