In this chapter you have studied Public Order offenses, including the crimes of riot, disorderly conduct, DWI, public intoxication, prostitution, obscenity, bigamy, and indecent exposure. Your assignment is to research an actual case of one of these offenses and compare it with the Texas criminal law to determine what crime the alleged offender in your case should be charged with under Texas law. You first need to find an actual case of a public order offense that occurred outside of the state of Texas. Your best source of information may be a newspaper. You are encouraged to use one of the many online newspaper sources. You do not have to use a newspaper. You may use instead magazines, books, or other reputable sources. Make sure that there is good information in your news source of the details of how the offense was committed, who is suspected of committing the offense, where and when it was committed, who, if anyone, was victimized, and why the offense was committed. Secondly, you need to research Texas criminal law regarding the types of public order offenses and the essential elements of each type. Your source has to be the official penal code of Texas. You can find the Texas Penal Code in print form or online. The online source for these offenses can be found at the following links:  Texas Penal Code-Disorderly Conduct (Links to an external site.)    Texas Penal Code-Prostitution (Links to an external site.) Texas Penal Code-Bigamy (Links to an external site.)    Texas Penal Code-Indecent Exposure (Links to an external site.)     Texas Penal Code-Intoxication (Links to an external site.) In this assignment you will act as prosecutor and decide how to charge the alleged perpetrator in the actual crime case that you selected. In doing this, you will need to consider and answer the following questions: Based on the crime that you researched, how would you charge the perpetrator? Which type of public order offense should this defendant be charged with? Why would you charge the defendant with this type of offense? What specific elements in your crime dictate how the defendant should be charged? Your answer to this Writing Assignment needs to be written in WORD with a Times New Roman 12 point font size, one-inch margins, and should be between 2 and 4 pages in length. See grading rubric in the syllabus for further details.  In order to receive full credit, your answer has to include all of the following: A brief narrative of the crime committed. Explain what happened, who, if anyone, was victimized, who is alleged to have committed the public order offense, where, when, how, and why the crime was committed. Make sure that this crime was committed some place other than Texas.   Your analysis should include a summary of the originating State statutes and penal code offense(s) An explanation of how you would charge the perpetrator of this public order offense if this crime had been committed in Texas and if you were the prosecutor with authority to charge this crime.
