Answer & Explanation
Verified Solved by verified expert

The answers to these questions are as follows:

 

QUESTION 10: FALSE. This is the answer because although some states have adopted a structured form of sentencing, most of the states still use indeterminate sentencing. Only a minority of states use the structured form. 

 

 

QUESTION 11; TRUE.  This is the answer because although the prosecutor mainly relies on the strength of the evidence to determine whether to charge or not, some factors beyond the crime's specific facts might influence the prosecution. For example, a prosecutor who is seeking to further his career might prosecute a particular case to gain favor in the eyes of the public since the charging is completely under the prosecutor's discretion. 

 

Step-by-step explanation

QUESTION 12: Hoyt v. Florida, (1961). This is the answer because in this case, the plaintiff argued that there was jury discrimination due to the fact that women were not required to serve on juries. The Supreme Court however held that this was not discriminatory as states can freely decide who to include in jury selection and who to exclude.
