“Guns and Ammo 101″ – The Real World of Forensic Evidence

Reposted from www.southwesternreporter.org

It looked like a typical first day of class for new law enforcement recruits: The size, scope and variety of firearms resting on the desks was impressive and intimidating. Students inspected rifles, shotguns and revolvers. While some looked uncomfortable, others appeared at ease and were clearly competent at handling the weapons. They practiced handling (empty) magazines. After the weapons had been cleared, and under close supervision, students were permitted to pull the trigger in order to hear the “click” that indicated a loaded weapon would have discharged a shot. For many students, it was the first time they had ever handled a firearm.

SBA Alumni Speaker Series: Esposito Discusses the Death Penalty – From Crime to Sentencing

Reposted from www.southwesternreporter.org.

As a part of the SBA Alumni Speaker Series, Professor Joseph Esposito ’89, Assistant District Attorney in charge of Special Operations for the LA County DA’s Office – and chairman of the office’s Special Circumstances Committee – discussed the process of deciding to seek the death penalty.

In a room full of students and faculty, including at least one professor who taught him as a student, you could hear a pin drop as Professor Esposito spoke about the specifics of some of the cases he has handled. He gave background and examples of these cases, as well as an overview of the complex process behind the decision to seek the death penalty.

“As Mr. Esposito’s criminal law professor, it was thrilling to watch his presentation,” said Professor Catherine Carpenter. “It was engaging and informative, and his delivery was perfect as we were transported between a courtroom watching a closing argument in a death penalty case and the District Attorney’s office as it decides whether to seek it.”
