must use legal citations, however, I will edit those if need be. please reference Criminal code when writing about it. 10-15 pages double spaced, worth 35% of my final grade. Include a reference page at the end. It needs to be 10 pages at least however if you can complete almost 10 pages I will finish the rest.
