CJ 120 Module Five Assignment One Table Template Loden's Wheel Factor Quote/Information Prevalent Factors Sharanda Jones Case 1.Socioeconomic Status "Too poor to afford a so called "dope lawyer" for her jury trial, she pleaded not guilty" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015). 2.Geographic Location "During a six-day trial in Dallas in August 1999, Franklin and Jackson- the cooperating couple arrested in Terrell- testified that had driven with Jones several times from Dallas to Huston where they would give Jones money and she would buy powder cocaine for them from her drug supplier" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015). 3.Family Status "I was numb", Jones said in an interview at the Carswell Woman's prison here. "I was thinking about my baby. I thought it can't be real life in prison" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015). 4.Race "Her case began in November 1997 when the Kaufman County Sheriff's Department conducted a large sweep in the city of Terrell, about 30 miles east of Dallas, netting more than 100 people, all of them black" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015). 5.Historical Events "If you want to understand why the Justice Department is making the historic move to release 6,000 federal drug inmates on November 1, do not read any stories clearly intended for terrified gated- community dwelling suburbanites" (Martin, 2015). Additional Factors Additional Resources 1.Union Affiliation "About 100,000 federal inmates- or nearly half- are serving time for drug offenses, among them thousands of non-violent offenders sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, according to the American Civil Liberty Union" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015). 2.Age "Jones, who will turn 48 next week, is one of tens of thousands of inmates who received harsh mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses during the crack cocaine epidemic" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015). 3.World Events "The Justice Department announced last month that one of Columbias most notorious drug traffickers and a senior paramilitary leader will serve about 15 years in prison for leading an international drug trafficking conspiracy that imported more than 100,000 kilograms of cocaine into the United States" (Horwitz & Kahn, 2015).

It wasn't just absolutely terrible matching the quotes up with the factors from the Loden's Wheel. I believe it was difficult to find examples for certain factors because the readings from the Jones case were focused on a certain situation and certain factors did not support the topic. There was factors on the Loden's Wheel that did not support the Jones case. I did find multiple examples for a few factors such as political events, historical events, and socioeconomic status. I found it easier to find examples for certain factors because race, age, and socioeconomic status are the most talked about and most brought up in just about any subject or matter. To me that made it easier to find examples because those things stick out first. Overall my opinion on the Jones case and the factors from the Loden's Wheel went well together even though some were harder to find than others.
