  3. Unfounding is when police listen to victim’s side of story and agree with their version as either “unbelievable” or “unprovable in court.” True
  4. Some statistics about robbery and homicide and victim-related terminology note that in almost 25% of all cases, the robber was a stranger and that the most likely murder victim is a female between the ages of 22 and 28. False
  5. VWAP stands for Victim/Witness Assistance Projects. In 1974, only 35% of offices of distinct attorneys routinely notified victims of felonies of the outcomes of their cases. By 1992, that percentage had increased to 47%. False


  1. Inveiglement – abducting a child through trickery or manipulation
  2. According to a 1980 survey of 2,000 children and their caretakers by Straus, Gelles, and Steinmetz, Sibling Abuse (1/3 or 33.3%) of all children are struck or attacked by a sibling each year.
  3. The 3 phases in the battered-woman syndrome cycle are:
    1. Tension building,
    2. Explosion, and
    3. Tranquil, loving aftermath
  4. South Dakota was the first state in 1975 to make forcible rape of a spouse a crime.
  5. Most important concepts learned during this course that were either new or they changed my view of crime, criminals, the criminal justice system, and victims.

The course has been informational in diverse concepts. However, the concepts that I found most intriguing were the rediscovery of crime victims and victimization theories. The rediscovery of crime victims shed light on the historical perspective of crimes. For instance, it enlightened on the transition from how victims dealt directly with offenders, to how states assumed that role. The theoretical aspect of victimization has also been elemental in understanding how one can assess a crime and its victims. For instance, the routine activity theory, which indicates that a crime occurs when three prerequisites are met: a motivated offender, a target, and insufficient protection, helps to enlighten on the chances of a crime occurring in different settings. While I have highlighted these courses as the most important, the course has offered great erudition regarding crimes and victims.

Interesting facts about the Guest Speakers

Guest speakers

  1. Nina T., victim of sexual molestation

Ranking – 10

I loved Nina’s story and the extent she pushed herself in fighting for what she deemed right. I completely understand her disposition regarding her grandparents trying to protect her first cousin. It was fantastic to hear that a woman younger than me was able to fight against her own family, when in the back of the head she thought that she would be destroying her family.

  1. Jennifer Storm, raped at 12,15, and 18

Ranking – 10

It was a quick interview. Nevertheless, I would love to find out more and talk to her about her books. I will definitely buy her first book, Blackout Girl, since I believe that many teenage girls growing up can relate with its content. We tend to take the wrong path; I do not mean the sexual abuse that she has experienced, but specifically being a great A student and going down the wrong path because of a major outbreak in her life.

  1. Nance S., molested by her sister, raped, attempted robbery

Ranking – 7

The only reason why I gave Ms. Nance S. the least score is that even though we should not be judging the victims, I felt that she was not determined in fighting against what had befell her compared to Nina who at a young age went to the counselor and stood up. I also felt that even though Nance tried for many years to get away from her sister, even now she still allows her to belittle her feelings. For instance, when she shared about her mother’s demise, she reveals that her sister still despises her in many ways.

  1. Brent Turvey, forensic victimology

Ranking – 10

I found Dr. Brent one of the most interesting and fascinating speakers due to his stories and because he works with United Nations based on his books, and because of his program of Forensic Psychology that I would like to apply in the future. His photos that he shared with us in class could’ve been harsh for some people but I found them to be engaging because he was showing us a true version of his work ethics.

  1. Diego Redondo, Active Shooter training & former FBI agent

Ranking – 10

The training was very informative and I would rate him right after Dr. Brent Turvey. I liked his detailed presentation and that he shares the course with John Jay College. I would definitely consider taking the course with him since it is such a low cost and I really liked his humor during the interview and stories regarding him being in the FBI. His tips were great as well.

  1. Carlina Leon, Psychological Trauma & Victimology Expert

Ranking – 10

Even though it was a short lecture due to our class schedule, it was great to listening to her and learning from her experiences. I like her approach regarding children and that she was giving us straightforward answers.
