Opinion piece by Dr. Katherine Ramsland focuses on the trial for the 2003 murder of Jason Sweeney, where the three boys who beat him to death were found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. Justina Morley, who lured Sweeney to his death, was allowed to plead to third-degree murder, in exchange for her testimony, and will be free by the time she turns 35. Ramsland states that Morley's behavior should concern us because "she seems to have lied, blamed other, pretended to be what she was not for the court, and ducked responsibility." According to Ramsland, traits for psychopathic behavior include chronic deception, manipulation, lack of remorse, failure to accept responsibility for one's actions, cruelty, self-centeredness, and a tendency to blame others."
