The term “Parens Patriae” in the English Feudal system means: (Points : 2) Parents’ rights Power of the child Juvenile Rights Power of the State to act on behalf of the child
Weegy: Parens Patriae [Latin, [ Parent of the country.] A doctrine that grants the inherent power and authority of the state to protect persons who are legally unable to act on their own behalf. The parens patriae doctrine has its roots in English Common Law. In feudal times various obligations and powers, collectively referred to as the "royal prerogative," were reserved to the king. The king exercised these functions in his role of father of the country. In the United States, the parens patriae doctrine has had its greatest application in the treatment of children, mentally ill persons, and other individuals who are legally incompetent to manage their affairs. The state is the supreme guardian of all children within its jurisdiction, and state courts have the inherent power to intervene to protect the best interests of children whose welfare is jeopardized by controversies between parents. This inherent power is generally supplemented by legislative acts that define the scope of child protection in a state. The state, acting as parens patriae, can make decisions regarding mental health treatment on behalf of one who is mentally incompetent to make the decision on his or her own behalf, but the extent of the state's intrusion is limited to reasonable and necessary treatment. The doctrine of parens patriae has been expanded in the United States to permit the attorney general of a state to commence litigation for the benefit of state residents for federal antitrust violations (15 U.S.C.A. § 15c). This authority is intended to further the public trust, safeguard the general and economic welfare of a state's residents, protect residents from illegal practices, and assure that the benefits of federal law are not denied to the general population. States may also invoke parens patriae to protect interests such as the health, comfort, and welfare of the people, interstate Water Rights, and the general economy of the state. ] (More)

which type of scientific evidence is most interesting to you? find a criminal case that used this type of evidence and explain why you think the evidence was important to determining the guilt or innocence of the accused.
Weegy: One of the first cases to use modern forensic evidence was one known as `the Acid Bath Murders`. [ John George Haigh, a serial killer convicted and sentenced to death in 1949, murdered from a combination of bizarre psychological (he drank his victim`s blood) and financial motives. He was eventually found to have killed six women although he claimed a total of 9 victims.. He is known as the 'acid bath' murderer because he disposed of the bodies by dissolving them in a vat of sulphuric acid. When police examined the sludge left by this process, they found remains including dentures and gallstones that were used as evidence in the trial and were instrumental in convicting Haigh. ] (More)
