As a criminologist, you are asked to provide an expert testimony on Jenny’s behavior. In your paper, address the following topics: Since victims may influence criminal behavior by playing an active role in a criminal incident, do you believe that Jenny continued to be a victim after time passed and she was allowed to leave the residence? Why or why not? What theory/theories of victimization would apply to Jenny’s situation? Define the term “learned helplessness” and determine if this applies to Jenny? If so, how? Do you think Jenny should be charged? Why or why not? If so, what would you recommend Jenny be charged with? Explain your decision. If she is not charged with anything, would you recommend any type of aftercare? If so, what type? As an expert criminologist, what else should be addressed or taken into consideration regarding Jenny’s culpability? If she is charged and convicted, what would you recommend for sentencing/punishment?
